Reminiscent of 1950s and 1960s Italy, its natural elegance and impeccable heritage will offset high octane Italian energy and enthusiasm. A mixture of legendary Italian charm, delicious unfussy food, refreshing drinks, stylish decor and some good old fashioned fun, Harry's Dolci Vita is open from dawn till late - serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with every Italian delizia you can imagine in between. Dinner will be a very relaxed and social affair. Seasonal Italian ingredients pepper the food and drinks menus and this versatile kitchen will turn its hand to Italian favourites in every section: aperitivi, antipasti, pizze, paste e risotti, pesce e carne, contorni, dolci (pasticceria, gelato sundaes, bevande, shaved ice granita); and last but not least, the drinks list.

Stayed at the near by Hotel for the past weeks, we’ve had an mid-evening meal at the restaurant plus a couple of drinks. Food was too good, well served by attentive staff and everything has been excellent and a good value for money . Further it has a good location and I highly recommend it. Will be back for sure next week.

I'm only writing a review because our waiter was outstanding yesterday ! Lucciano was the best waiter , so kind and attentive and humoured me throughout the service. Nice food, nice atmosphere and beautiful interior.

Very poor service, had to tell the waiter that part of my dish was missing, then had to remind him to bring it a few times - by the time I got everything, my food was cold. Also the portions we got were a lot smaller than the ones we got just 2 weeks ago (same dish).

Poor service, no attention to anything, from welcoming guests to offering drinks, same during dinner, the same when getting the bill. Very disappointing. Some of the food was amazing, some not very nice. Surprising when at Harry’s in Marylebone was a wonderful experience. It’s a cafe and not a restaurant in my mind.

High quality food and the service was good as well. Had the most amazing truffle pasta here and the other items were excellent as well. Only negative would be that the place is quite cramped so the tables are very close to each other.

The rudest wait staff and managers I have ever come across. Rude, unaccommodating people and mediocre food. Soup tasted like it was out of the can. Pasta was fair at best. But for their location to Harrods, would skip this place.

Style over substance. The food lacked flavour. The cocktails lacked alcohol and the waiter’s jacket was dirty at the start of lunch service. It’s just a place to be seen. If you really want a gourmet experience head to Cichetti in Piccadilly or Sassi in Knitsbridge.

I love this restaurant and have been before for dinner. I deducted a star this time as my food was noticeabley not as good as the first time (I ordered one of the same dishes) and my table was not good. They can also be a little slow with drinks which I noticed more on my first visit. Overall the staff are attentive and it's not a problem.

Service was exceptionally slow, no-one approached the table for over half an hour until I want to the bar. Attitude of service staff was borderline rude and arrogant. Food was average. Would not recommend and not return, clearly trades on its location near Harrods, but there are much better options nearby.
