About Cipriani Food

Harry’s Bar has been welcoming guests to the heart of Venice since 1931. A century of tradition in the best Italian restaurants. Since 1983 Cipriani Food has been taking our recipes and a selection of the finest raw materials into the homes of our customers.


Heritage

The history of Cipriani Food is 90 years long. It is the result of the work of four generations who have been able to work together, guided by a common vision. The story of an Italian family, excellence in the international food sector.


Our Story

Harry’s Bar has been one of the most renowned restaurants in the world for over 90 years. An institution in the city of Venice. A meeting place for writers, artists, actors, princes and aristocrats, famous for its legendary dishes and incomparable atmosphere, always imitated and yet still unique.


Bellini and Carpaccio

Giuseppe Cipriani Sr. was the inventor of Bellini and Carpaccio.
Bellini, the iconic cocktail, was invented after the end of World War II in the name of peace and freedom by mixing prosecco with a fresh white peach puree. The drink is named after the Italian Renaissance painter Giovanni Bellini (Giambellino) whose works were on display at the Doge’s Palace in Venice
at the time.

Carpaccio was created by Giuseppe Cipriani in 1950, the year of the great Vittore Carpaccio exhibition in Venice. It was inspired by Countess Amalia Nani
Mocenigo, a regular customer who had been forbidden by her doctor to eat cooked meat. There are a thousand and one versions of Carpaccio, or perhaps
even more. The real Carpaccio is the one invented by Arrigo Cipriani’s father, and consists of very thin slices of beef sirloin arranged on a plate and decorated in the Kandinsky style with a sauce that at Harry’s Bar is called ‘universal’.


Worldwide Network

It was Giuseppe Cipriani who invented the famous Carpaccio and the original Bellini, two creations of Harry’s Bar that have become icons of Venice, very well known all over the world.

Harry’s Bar became so popular that the format spread everywhere, especially overseas, and it was later replicated in Asia and Middle East. The unmistakable style of the most popular Venetian bar in the world was a huge success in New York City, a town in constant evolution just like Cipriani brand.

The brand’s portfolio includes restaurants, event venues, hotels, lounges, clubs and serviced residences, as well as a full line of Cipriani-style food and beverages.


Cipriani Egg Pasta

Our pasta dough is simple.
We use 7 eggs per kilo of durum wheat semolina. Nothing else.
Only the best Italian raw materials carefully chosen by Arrigo Cipriani.
It cooks in no time, about three minutes, thanks to its thinness and the low moisture content of the dough (7.5%).
Each pack contains 5 servings.


The Result of Complex Preparation

The preparation process is slow and therein lies our secret: more than 80 passages between rollers and folds. Ancient gestures, like those of the rolling pin but more effective, make our pasta very thin, almost impalpable. Finally, we let it rest for over 14 hours until it reaches the consistency that meets our requirements. Only then is it ready. A unique product.

Mixed with sparkling wine it becomes the Bellini, with Gin, Vodka or White Rum it becomes the ideal fruit cocktail for every season.

The Original Bellini
After the end of World War Il, in 1948 Giuseppe Cipriani invented a cocktail in the name of peace and freedom. He mixed Prosecco with a white peach puree, resulting in the iconic Bellini.

The Original Bellini
The name of the cocktail comes from the Renaissance painter Giovanni Bellini, whose paintings were on display at the Palazzo Ducale. The inspiration came from an orange-pink cape present in a painting by Bellini. Bellini is still made only with Prosecco and white peach puree, according to the originai recipe. The sweetness of peaches mixed with bubbles generates a sweet and delicate cocktail.
