Lovely Pizzas

We are locals who eat here fairly regularly. The pizzas are really lovely and, when I can resist the temptation of them, the pasta dishes I have had are also very nice. The menu doesn't change, but there is a good selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. The staff are, in the main... read more

This is our second visit to Amore. The first being ten years ago approx. when under a different ownership. We certainly were not disappointed this time. We had lunch our soups came piping hot in hot bowls. Although my husbands soup with beans was rather peppery. My Minestrone was a little salty but I love this so didn't mind too... More

We had a family meal here yesterday evening. The starters were a little on the plain side but the mains were absolutely outstanding. My parents both had steaks, my fiancée had fish and I had gnocchi. There was a good range of veggie options with a really clear key to identify any food preferences, the portions were generous, overly so... More

An authentic Italian restaurant in the middle of a small village like Shaftesbury was a pleasant surprise. An old church was modestly converted to create a warm and pleasant atmosphere in this restaurant. We had cold roast vegetables for a starter and pizza for the main meal. Both dishes was excellent and very tasty. It is a restaurant that I... More

Starters were as removed from Italian as they could be, with carrots and smothered in balsamic vinegar, a chicken dish was cold in the middle, baked underneath and tough on top. in a bland tomato sauce. vegetables undercooked in a sizzling oven dish, having voiced our complaints nothing was done and ignored. A lovely place like Shaftesbury deserves better

We visited this restaurant twice in a week and were very well looked after with a 20 month old. His pasta arrived first , fast and not too hot allowing us to kick back relax and enjoy the wine selection. Our food was first class , good portion sizes, beautifully presented and with service that found the right balance.

Amore has a very welcoming maître D and a great atmosphere. The food is always really good, so we go as often as we can. Saturday lunchtime is a particular favourite!
