Emptied your wallet at Harrods and need to recover over a bowl of pasta and glass of fizz? – Richard Caring’s “fun” and “nicely buzzing” Italian brasserie, near the store’s rear entrance, can be just the job. Now two years old, its fanbase primarily seems to extend to shoppers and other miscellaneous Knightsbridge types, as it elicits limited survey feedback; but all reports praise its “great consistency in a fun setting with attentive and engaging staff”.

Near the back of Harrods, “the latest addition to the Caprice Holdings group” delights Knightsbridge shoppers and other denizens of SW3 with its “glamorous” decor and very “traditional” menu of cicchetti, pasta, pizze, risotti and grills. It inspired the odd gripe (“like a crowded train carriage”), but more common are raves for its “reasonably priced” fare (for the location) and slick service (“superb coffee too… the real McCoy, oh, and did I mention the olive oil!”). A new sibling – Harry’s Bar (see also) – opens in October 2018.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Have you eaten at Harry’s Dolce Vita?
