A Bellini and cocktail bar in Mayfair, located on Lancashire Court.

The name Cartizze comes from one of the greatest vineyards for Prosecco, and naturally Prosecco features prominently in the cocktail list. Apart from Bellinis there are original drinks including the Rhubarb, combining Prosecco with rhubarb in two different guises, and the Amor y Amargo made with Prosecco, Amaretto, Cynar, apricot liqueur, lemon, egg white and vanilla sugar. There are also classic Italian cocktails, a rum-based selection, aged cocktails, and vintage spirits. Bar snacks are mostly Italian, including 36-month-old Parmesan served with balsamic vinegar.

This classy cocktail bar is tucked down one of my favourite Mayfair alleys. There's several bars & restaurants which spill out onto the pavement creating a lovely buzz. Friendly staff & varied cocktail menu for grown ups. All the cocktails I tasted were on the more sour & bitter end of the spectrum rather than sugary confections I tend to drink. Would be perfect to impress a date!

I would have to say this is my favourite best bar in mayfair, and to say that, well you're pretty much saying this is the best bar in london. Very skilled and friendly staff, amazing cocktails, beautiful people, A1 location and if you're feeling peckish just pop upstairs to the best pizza restaurant in town!

A friend and I both got a voucher through timeout; 4 cocktails for £16, which is a pretty good deal

We booked before we went on a weekday evening about 6.30pm but there wasn't really any need as it was quite quiet
Waiters were really friendly and sat us down and took us through the cocktail menu. There are a few that aren't included in the deal but most are. They also brought us tap water and snacks in cute cone cups as well
Seating is comfy, nice classy decor. Room is a bit dark but there is another that was lighter 
We only used the one voucher and so both had 2 different cocktails. Recommendations are olive oil gin fizz and amor y amargo - both delish. The other two we chose were ok but very strong - Mayfair Elegante being the one I remember
We went back with our other voucher and received same friendly service. It was also quite quiet even tho we went on a saturday 
Would definitely go back

We had our first opportunity for a little post work drinks, and after a few drinks I settled incely into the G&T's and I intend to return so I can finish that section of the drinks menu! The cocktails were very top notch, as was the serice from Artur and his team, really appreciated!

Thank you Time Out for having an offer on this fantastic bar. I came here with a friend on a Saturday afternoon, and it was nice and quiet, and I was immediately impressed by the sleek interior of black marble and cushy looking chairs (yes, we sat on the couch). In all honesty, Mayfair is usually out of my price range, and I balked slightly at the prices. But armed with the Time Out voucher, I boldly ordered our drinks, and went with the Chinese Lantern and the Smoking Geisha. The former was a pleasant bellini, but the latter was really what blew me away. The Smoking Geisha is served in a bell jar filled with smoke, and when lifted, makes for a nice little instagram video. It's a Hakushu whiskey based cocktail with some kumquat fruit, and goes down extremely smoothly. I was afraid the smoke was all for theatrics, which it is, partially, but realized that it actually serves a real purpose and adds a real smoky taste to the drink, which was subtle but not overpowering. It made me feel like one of those fat Japanese businessman going to perv on beautiful Japanese geishas, which I suppose is the point really. All in all, fantastic drinks, very nice bartender(s) and I'll come back again...when I can afford it. Definitely one of my top few bars in London.

The atmosphere of the bar is really nice, I liked the lighting and furniture, it looks quite classy. The cocktails were a bit naff to be honest, they tasted very average and were too expensive for what they were. The food was between good & average. Some of the portions were really small and the cheese on the cheese board was a bit underwhelming (think mild cheddar). The service was poor, even though we were sat at the bar, it took ages until we were served - for every single order.

An elegant, and more importantly quiet, cocktail bar in the buzzy alleyways off Bond Street. You can always find a noisy bar with music blaring and customers shouting as a result, so if you want a grown-up bar in which you can actually talk to people, this is it. Timeout occasionally sells good-value vouchers for 4 specialty drinks, which my husband and I enjoyed. We also bought two Italian-deli appetiser platters to soak up the alcohol. Highly recommended.

Love this hidden place. Classy but not intimidating. Great cocktails and wine with prosecco on tap. A must place to relax and enjoy. The bar is really beautiful with vintage glasses.

Cartizze is hidden down Lancashire Court, a cute cobbled courtyard hosting a few other tapas bars and restaurants. 

We arrived on a Saturday night armed with 
TimeOut's four cocktails for £16 offer. The venue was pretty much empty, which I found surprising (and perhaps made the venue seem a bit lonely - queue sad violin playing). However the interior is quite glamorous with a high-end jazz bar feel, meaning that the vibe was nice regardless of patron numbers. The cocktails themselves were presented well - Amor Y Amargo and Mayfair Elegante - but didn't taste too remarkable. The exception was the Rhubarb, which was unique and delectable.

I'd go again with friends to make sure I'm not missing out on a signature cocktail, as our voucher did limit us to a select choice.
