We were cold hungry and tired, looking for inspiration for supper last night. Amore was in sight. Great venue in an old church. Service was really good. The table was a little wonky and the padded table cloth made it difficult for the beers to stand on. The food however was really good. Gnocchi with a gorgonzola sauce, and a... More

Love the Penne Salmon and asparagus. Also the chicken with above sauce is my favourite. Staff are very helpful. Genuine traditional family run Italian in an unusual building and a great town.

Amore is housed in an old chapel and to enter you have to walk through a churchyard. But open the door and you are in the courtyard of a Roman villa, complete with fountain, olive trees and a painted sky of blue! We stumbled upon this excellent restaurant whilst on holiday in Shaftesbury and it was wonderful. The service was... More

We were in Shaftesbury for only one night - which is a shame because this is a restaurant I'd come back to again and again. Great food, attentive service, quirky decor and great atmosphere. We LOVED it! This is the restaurant to visit if you are in Shaftesbury.

As you approach the building it looks as if it's just been picked up from the heart of Italy and put down in in the centre of Shaftesbury... truly amazing. The food Is simply brilliant, there's nothing more to say. I believe the head Chef is the father of this family run business. Both my wife and chose to have... More

An old stone chapel imaginatively converted to an Italian restaurant, with a grand porticoed entrance leading into a single lofty dining area brightly decorated with Mediterranean scenes and with lamp standards and large planters creating an interesting environment. Incredibly cheerful staff who really work hard to build a happy, busy atmosphere and as a result this place is packed out.... More

This church conversion is quite a huge and impressive space. The set lunch menu is very reasonable,and perfectly good. It was very quiet at lunchtime but would love to see it full and loud. Worth a visit .
