Harry’s Dolce Vita opens in Knightsbridge

Harry’s Dolce Vita is now open on Basil Street, Knightsbridge

Harry’s Dolce Vita, an Italian all-day dining restaurant is now open on Basil Street in Knightsbridge. Exuding stylish décor, serving seasonal Italian plates, and offering all the elegance and glamour of 1950’s Italy, Harry’s Dolce Vita is a nod to the namesake Harry’s Bar in Mayfair.

From breakfast through to dinner, the menu at Harry’s Dolce Vita features Italian classics from Chef Director Diego Cardoso, who brings with him extensive experience at several Michelin-starred restaurants, most notably the Italian classic Murano, in Mayfair. Menu highlights include antipasti such as Carpaccio di Tonno and Burrata al Tartufo, Pizze is available in a variety of flavours, and Pasta e Risotti, and Pesce e Carne complete the menu. Signature dishes include Linguine Vongole; Pappardelle al Ragù Bolognese; and Spigola al Cartoccio ­– a whole seabass baked in a paper bag with fennel, rosemary and Amalfi lemon. To round off the meal with something sweet, an extensive ‘Dolci’ menu is available, with traditional treats such as Gelato cannoli, Tiramisù and Panna Cotta.

Italian elegance weaves its way into the Harry’s Dolce Vita drinks list in the form a grappa trolley which circles the room offering diners an aperitif or digestif. Joining the trolley is a list of exceptional Italian wines, and classic cocktails with a “Dolce Vita” twist.

Transporting guests back to the restaurants and bars of 1950s and 1960s Italy, when the country was transformed by an economic boom, this intimate new restaurant brings glamour and elegance through the use of warm autumnal coloured fabrics and deep green accents, colourful Murano glass and vintage brass fixtures. Carefully curated photography and artwork adorns the walls, all celebrating la dolce vita.

The site, from Caprice Holdings, sits on the prestigious Cadogan Estate. Spanning a 300-year history, the estates’ values have helped maintain healthy dialogues with residents, community groups and all others who share enthusiasm for the area. The opening of Harry’s Dolce Vita will no doubt be celebrated by locals and destination diners alike, offering a slice of Italy in the heart of Knightsbridge.

Harry’s Dolce Vita is now open at 27-31 Basil Street, Knightsbridge, London SW3 1BB. For reservations please call 020 3940 1020 or visit www.harrysdolcevita.com
