Decided to visit Amore on Wednesday 8th April as we were travelling through Shaftesbury. This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. On arrival we were greeted by our very competent waiter Vincenzo, he was very efficient considering he was doing everything pretty much himself with lots of other diners. The menu had so much choice it was... More

Simply, a slice of heaven on a plate. Love what you've done with the place. The walls are divinely decorated! Vincenzo the waiter was glorious and made all the difference to the experience. Very welcoming, friendly atmosphere. Stunning food and robust wines. It's like Italy; LAV IT.

We visited Amore for lunch. Our son is a coeliac so rang in advance to make sure they could cater for him. I can honestly say it was the best gluten free pasta he's ever had. I had soup followed by mussels in tomato and chilli sauce. Both were absolutely delicious. My husband had a pizza which he said was... More

The fresh seabass was wonderfully prepared in a lovely sauce. Felt a bit sorry for the waiter who was overworked as he appeared to be the only waiter we saw that particular evening. Rather large converted building had generally nice atmosphere but it was a bit too cold inside for us. Reasonably priced. Would definitely go again if visiting the... More

One of the nicest Italian meals I have had recently and the owner and chef came out to see us. All the staff were very friendly and the food was so beautifully presented and cooked so well.

This is a favourite haunt of ours, and we have never been disappointed! The food is delicious, and the helpings very generous. Service is efficient, and our waiter was charming. The building was once a chapel, and has been imaginatively restored with frescoes of views of Italian villages. It can be noisy, as we once found on a Saturday night... More
