Inspired by the bàcari – small local wine bars – of Venice, Augustus Harris provides some Venetian charm right in the beating heart of London, conveniently located on Catherine Street in buzzing Covent Garden. The place to go to share some cicheti along with a bottle of wine from the impressively curated selection, Augustus Harris boasts a casual and laidback vibe, with a menu of simple yet delicious small plates that could rival those of a fine dining establishment.

With rustic wooden walls and furniture, Augustus Harris on Covent Garden’s Catherine Street combines the style of a traditional Venetian tavern with stylish, modern decor. Sit at the copper bar upstairs and watch as the buzz of central London goes on by around you, or take a seat in the cosy dining room with its mood lighting creating an intimate ambience, perfect for a romantic date. On the menu at Augustus Harris you’ll find cicheti – small tapas style plates – and rustic Italian crostini, with a handpicked list of wines and mouthwatering cocktails serving as the perfect accompaniment to them.
Share a board of salami, cheese or some spuntini like the grilled tomino and rucola (cow’s milk cheese wrapped in prosciutto with rucola and balsamic reduction) and pepperoncini ripieni (spicy cherry peppers with tuna) or tuck into some crostini with toppings like gorgonzola, pear, grapes & honey, and mackerel and pickled red onions. London may have no shortage of Italian restaurants but Augustus Harris is a name that stands out from the crowd with its casual Italian cuisine and stylish atmosphere. A favourite among Londoners and tourists alike, this Catherine Street joint draws in the crowds, so be sure to book in advance to avoid having to wait!
Really great evening. Staff was very help full polite and a good sens of humour. And quick service. Amd very great food and wine. Defently be back!
My favourite place in Covent Garden and probably London. It never disappoints. Great food, wine and service. You can either choose to sit in the vibrant upstairs room or in the quiet basement area. Highly recommended.
Delicious food and wine, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff - we felt as if we’d spent the evening in Italy! I’d recommend the mixed platter of crostini.
