Founded in 1931 in Venice by Giuseppe Cipriani, the mythical Harry’s Bar is world-renowned for its Italian simplicity and sophistication. Originally opened as a bar, it was transformed into a restaurant and went on to welcome some of the most legendary names in cinema, literature, the arts, and more, from Ernest Hemingway, Charlie Chaplin, and Truman Capote to Barbara Hutton, Peggy Guggenheim, and Woody Allen. The fabled establishment is also known for having served as the birthplace of the Bellini cocktail and carpaccio. Simply Italian offers recipes and tips from Arrigo Cipriani—Giuseppe’s son and the restaurant’s owner—to make simple yet delicious Italian dishes from Harry’s menu.
