In 1931 a long held dream became reality.

Giuseppe Cipriani opened the doors to Harry’s Bar. In a discreet stone building perched along a canal just off Piazza San Marco in Venice, he created a timeless and impeccably appointed establishment. His concept was to serve others as you would want to be served yourself. His vision of simple luxury came to touch the souls of people all over the world.

At Harry’s Bar in Venice, all clients are treated like royalty. Simple elements such as true service and devotion have elevated Harry’s to legendary status. In fact, in 2001, the Italian Ministry for Cultural Affairs declared Harry’s Bar in Venice a national landmark, a unique honor bestowed not for the establishments’s décor or furniture, but for its witness to the events of a century in Venice.

The secret of Cipriani isn’t about what can be seen or touched, but what can be felt and sensed. It is intangible but palpable. It can’t be patented, but even after 75 years it hasn’t been duplicated by others.

The most popular dishes are: The World-Famous Bellini Cocktail, the exquisite Carpaccio, perfect sandwiches and ice creams to die for – all take their place among the pastas and risottos, the fish and Mediterranean vegetables that make up some of the world’s finest food.

Four generations of Cipriani have developed a single restaurant into a world renowned hospitality brand, still recognized for its distinguished venues and service all over the world. They are located in New York, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Abu Dhabi, Venice, Porto Cervo, London and Istanbul.

The Cipriani Istanbul is a 2,500 square foot restaurant that seats 180 indoors and features a 1,000 square foot enclosed terrace with seating for 75. There is also the glass-enclosed ballroom offering city views from the top floor of Edition Hotel, one of the finest hotels in Istanbul in the heart of the Levent business district.

Cipriani is the restaurant of choice for anybody who really appreciates the very finest Italian food. Cipriani Istanbul opens its doors 365 days of the year from 12pm to 12am.
