Very traditional Italian in the heart of Shrewsbury. One of my fav places to visit for food. People who say it's expensive should stick to spoons or such like cheap chains. Money buys quality and the food is always to my taste here. Friendly staff and made to feel welcome. Would fully recommend, this is a small venue so booking... More

I had absolutely no intention of writing another review for this place, but we've just come back from our second visit to this gem and thought "surely no one can possibly have rated La Dolce Vita poorly?" Apparently, some people have, so I'll say it here: If you are after the sort of meal where it's all about the show... More

The only regret is that we have taken 4 years to find this restaurant! If you love great tasting food, great service with a smile and good wine, then dine at La Dolce Vita. Luigi and Patricia make a good team and made our evening one of the best we have had. Each dish is unpretentious and full of flavour... More

This was recommended to us but in all honesty l could not do the same .There are many other places producing much better quality food at lower prices. La Dolce Vita needs a complete revamp to compete in the 21st century

I recently went to La Dolce Vita for dinner and had a lovely meal. I had crostini to start, tagliatelle al ragu for main and figs with vanila butter for desert. Everything was delicious and very authentic. The staff are very friendly and polite and are very accommodating. I also went to the last gourmet evening here. This really was... More

This is the fourth time we have eaten here and every time has been excellent. On this occasion there were four of us. We tried the scallops and crostini for starters, we had monkfish, lamb and duck for our mains. For desert we tried the chocolate mouse and the semi-fredo. All dishes were presented exquisitely and were very tasty. If... More

Always nice to find! Not enough family run Italian restaurants about - good ones anyway! The interior leaves a lot to be desired - the fake foliage I thought was a bit naff. The food though, well, the menu - didn't really excite me to be honest I didn't think there was much choice - when I go out I... More

Charming small restaurant, and delicious food - dishes there went beyond the generic. We were quite a large party but were looked after with efficiency and friendliness - extending to the next day when I went back to pick up the mobile phone I'd lost. Recommended.

If you are looking for somewhere for excellent food & atmosphere, then look no further. Patricia & Luigi are perfect hosts. The food is outstanding and the dining ambience perfect for either families or couples, day or evening. The wine list caters for a wide range of tastes. Another delicious birthday meal, will be back soon.

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
