Press Release

Caprice Holdings to open restaurant in December 2017

Cadogan today announces an agreement with Caprice Holdings to bring the first ‘Harry’s Dolci’ to Knightsbridge, opening at 27 - 31 Basil Street on 6th December 2017.


The new restaurant has been signed on a 10 year lease and will occupy 2,850 sq ft. It will offer all-day dining, a nod to Harry’s Bar in Mayfair and the iconic Venice original. Transporting guests back to the restaurants and bars of post-war 1950s and 1960s Italy, when the country was transformed by an economic boom, the intimate restaurant will bring glamour and elegance through the use of warm autumnal coloured fabrics and deep green accents, jewel-like Murano glass and vintage brass fixtures. Carefully curated artworks and photography will adorn the walls, celebrating la dolce vita.


GM Giancarlo Princigalli and Chef Director Diego Cardoso will oversee a 64 cover dining area, with an additional bar section and 46 cover terrace.


Hugh Seaborn, CEO of Cadogan, comments: “Knightsbridge has both a strong local community and significant international audience – Harry’s Dolci will be welcomed by both. The idea of a ‘Harry’s Bar’ open to all felt a good fit for the neighbourhood and Caprice Group consistently create some of London’s most exciting and memorable dining experiences.  


We have focused recently on adding to the area’s food offer, resulting in the recent openings of April’s, Granger & Co and Wulf & Lamb on Pavilion Road alongside a local butcher, baker, greengrocer and cheesemonger. There is much more to come over the next couple of years, from further independent artisans on Pavilion Road and relaxed coffee shops offering London’s best coffee, to glamorous fine-dining restaurants at the upcoming openings of The Cadogan Hotel, operated by Belmond, and the first Costes hotel outside Paris.”
