A group of four of us ate here a couple of weeks ago. None of us are local, so it was booked based on Trip Advisor reviews, and how right those reviews are! I have to say that when we walked in my heart sank, as it was a bit like walking into somebody's front room. However, do NOT be... More

We're not from the area and were just stopping by for the night and chose La Dolce based on the reviews on here. We were not disappointed. Friendly staff and great meal and wine. Thankyou

My friend and I like very different food but both of us are always impressed by the food here. We eat before going to the cinema, and without in any way being rushed we always have very efficient service which allows us to have plenty of time to reach the cinema. Always a pleasure to eat here.

My wife likes a good Italian meal so rather than going to Carluccios (which we have visited many around the UK), but given its poor reviews in Shrewsbury, we decided to venture to La Dolce Vita instead. We felt the restaurant was grubby and rundown, and despite the reviews on here we found the service by the old gentlemen, who... More

Excellent experience, food, wine and company. Visited with my family including a 14 month infant, high chair for baby as soon as we arrived and they could not have been more accommodating. Excellent house wine at a very reasonable price and the food was amazing. Fabulous night all round, thank you.

The food is always spot on and worth the wait for it to be freshly prepared. The menu is unique and always offers interesting and gorgeous flavours. The staff go the extra mile to cater for younger needs and diet requirements. The Penne 83 is a must!

If you find yourself in Shrewsbury do visit La Dolce Vita. We had a wonderful Italian meal there served by the very attentive Luigi and his friendly wife. This was really service with a smile - and the most authentic Italian food we have ever eaten.

A wonderful evening at La Dolce Vita - I cant praise the food and warm welcome enough. Starters were varied, imaginative and difficult to choose – the prawn and smoked salmon was an explosion of flavours which complimented each other perfectly accompanied by a selection of home made bread. For main I opted for the Ragu and pasta. Lovely, well... More

We are fairly regular at La Dolce Vita, and thought it time that we wrote a review. Sometimes we have been there just my wife and myself, and sometimes with family. Whenever we go the service is impeccable, the food absolutely delicious and the atmosphere is wonderful for a relaxed evening out. If you want hussle and bussle, and difficulty... More
