we ate at Dolce Vita again and experienced their new menu-absolutely first class. Taste, texture, presentation and service all of the highest order. This is a seriously good restaurent which deserves all the accolades going. It is rare to find food of this quality served by such a pleasant family. Long may they continue.

After many visits to Shrewsbury it was about time I did some proper research into finding the perfect venue for an evening meal. A fantastic night from the moment we arrived to the time we left. Lovely venue, friendly staff and amazing food.....we will return.

I visited here with my girlfriend last week. The staff were very helpful and friendly even when I needed to change my booking time at late notice. The restaurant is family run, small and quaint and the menu is impressively stocked with evidently homemade Italian style dishes. We opted for the traditional 3 courses of Antipasti, first and second course... More

A superb meal of the highest quality in lovely romantic table with a window view & oil candle made organised by Patricia made the night so much more special. The Salmon & prawn cocktail is wonderful & you'll never see a prawn cocktail to compete with this, the spicy fish soup was equally very tasty and most unusual - only... More

Another independent restaurant in Shrewsbury which has great food. The salmon/prawn cocktail starter and the duck or lamb main course can all be recommended but the tiramisu is always memorable. The red and white house wines are good and reasonably priced. The room is a bit bland but the cooking more that makes up for it.

We have eaten at La Dolce Vita many times in the past ands have always had a great meal. We had been in town and decided to eat out at the last minute so called at 7-30pm on a Wednesday evening. We were seated immediately and chose to share a crostini starter which consisted of 4 pieces of ciabatta with... More

Having arrived in Shrewsbury by the Heart of Wales Railway, we were unsure of where this restaurant was, or the route to it. Our friends had searched on trip advisor a few days earlier, and this restaurant stood out head and shoulders above the others. But, did we walk along the river, or through the centre of Shrewsbury to get... More

An excellent gourmet special menu, with champagne, ideal way to bring in the New Year. The ravioli was something else.

We booked a table on the strength of a glowing recommendation from a friend and an excellent reputation on Trip Advisor and if anything the experience exceeded our expectations. Particular highlights included the friendly service from our very welcoming host, the 'Textures of Pumpkin' and the absolutely divine pistachio panna cotta. Not to be missed on any visit to Shrewsbury.
