Harry’s Bar & Food Room is a restaurant with a dedication to one dish. They make a big deal about the risotto at this Italian joint, making it the centrepiece of their selection. When you can make it as well as they can, it makes perfect sense. From their Young Street address in Moonee Ponds, to the north-east of central Melbourne, they serve up their speciality dish for lunch, dinner and even functions – book a table now to get your fill.
Risotto is an Italian classic, but it is a difficult dish to do well. So when you find a restaurant that makes it their main focus, it is worth sitting up and taking note. At Harry’s Bar & Food Room on Young Street in Moonee Ponds, they make as good a risotto as anywhere in Melbourne, so we recommend jumping the tram from the city centre to the Moonee Ponds Junction/Pascoe Vale Road stop and getting stuck into some of the finest Italian food in the city.
A great risotto is one thing, but to mention only that would do a disservice to the other dishes on offer on Young Street. Harry’s Bar & Food Room have a full menu of Italian favourites, so whether you are in Moonee Ponds for a pizza, a pasta or just something to go with a schooner or two, you’re in luck. They cater for everyone as well, with vegetarian and vegan options prominent, as well as proudly boasting of their ability to make everything gluten-free on request, a rarity in Melbourne.
Service was great and the food was hands down some of the best Italian in Melbourne. The pizza was to die for and the gluten free base was delicious!
I highly recommend Harry's. Food was fantastic, dessert was to die for and service was exceptional. I look forward to returning again very soon with my family!
The risotto as always was absolutely delicious. When you combine that with the lunch special which also comes with a complimentary glass of wine, then it is perfect.
