it could be a must see due to the famous heritage but in such a beautiful city a closed, narrow-windowed old bar is not my favorite location.

This is where the Bellini was invented. While the price is very high, 20 euro per Bellini, I had to go for the the story. All drinks come with some table snacks as well.

This is the classic Cipriani bar in Venice, home of the Bellini. Visited in the past by European royalty, Hemingway, etc.

Very classic atmosphere and really outstanding service. Recommended for that one special meal.

Harry's Bar is close to Piazza San Marco but has become a focal tourist attraction thanks to its colourful past. The place is known to have been visited by various dignitaries and for a whole year it was also one of the spots of Ernest Hemingway.

Today it is always full of tourists. We had to wait for about 45 minutes for a table. We just wanted to stop for a drink and savour the experience. Once seated we ordered a couple of Bellini cocktails. They were tasty and refreshing and served accompanied with some dried fruit and nuts. The service was efficient but unfortunately, too efficient, as the waiters seems to have wanted to turn around as many tables as possible. Everything seemed rushed. Furthermore, typical of all main touristic places in Venice, everything was also overpriced.

I first visited this bar with some friends when we were 15. We were good kids so they didn't mind serving us their famous bellini. Delicious.

Harry's is one of those great Italian landmarks on the Hemingway trail. It figures prominently in the novel "Across the River and Into the Trees." It also claims to have invented the Bellini cocktail.

On my second trip to Venice, I only managed to have a slice of cake and a Bellini, but on my 3rd visit, actually got to have a meal here. Saffron pasta - UNBELIEVABLE.

Very famous restaurant, also very famous for their Bellini (Prosecco and white peach juice). Very expensive place to eat, or to order a bellini.

A Venice institution, Harry's Bar is not to be missed. Enjoy a perfect Bellini in the bar before heading upstairs for dinner-- the Bellini is beyond and it's an essential part of the Harry's bar experience. Opt for one of the Venetian specialties on the menu instead of something familiar, because this is truly the place to try classic Venetian cooking and Harry's Bar gets everything right. I swear by the Harry's Bar cookbook and would recommend it to anyone wanting to attempt Venetian cuisine at home. I love, love, love Harry's Bar!

Very expensive restaurant. The atmosphere is fantastic. Food is really good. Waiters are white dressed. you should have an adequate dress code to feel comfortable in the restaurant.
