Good and surprisingly affordable

Don't be put off thinking this place is just expensive and bland. Not true, the food was great and it was actually quite reasonably priced.

Harry bar is the best choice for early dinner with friends. The terrace is overlooking the lake, the service was warm and fun and the plates were traditional and not expensive. The waitress was warm and humorous and we enjoyed live piano music.

Tried to go twice to Harry's. It was right outside our Hotel. First time we were ignored and we finally left. The second time we got the same kind of haughty attitude, were given a table that we could hardly pull the chairs out to sit down, while seeing many empty tables around us. Again we waited and waited while... More

Lovely terrace overlooking the lake near the ferry. The food is only average as is the service, but on a lovely night it is a great place to have dinner.

If you are looking for a special atmosphere, it is one of my favorite places in Cernobbio both for a nice chat with friends at 5 or 6pm, or for a high level but not too formal dinner. If you look for a place also for business lunches or dinners, it is absolutely ok. Obviously with the sunlight and some... More

This bar has a prime location at the waterfront and apparently takes advantage of that fact. By far the rudest service we experienced in our 10 days in Italy. The wine was 3 times the price of other locations and we chose not to stay for a meal after sampling the unappetizing nuts and stale chips we were given with... More

Lovely spot on a nice day, that's where it ends! If your not prepared to drop $100 euro then be prepared to have your bread basket, oil & vinegar "SNATCHED" from your table before you have finished your wine or received your cheque! We spent $75 for a lunch and they made it very clear that was not enough! We... More

This is the 2nd Harry's Bar in Italy from the original family and although small it was just great. On a Sunday it is a must as not much is open in Cernobbio. Great view and nice staff.
