We stumbled on this restaurant on our last day but so wish we had found it earlier. I do love to see a restaurant where the staff enjoy working together as it provides a much more friendly atmosphere. We had a wonderful meal where the food was excellent and exactly as described on the menu. A perfect end to our... More

I was here last night with my boyfriend and we were pleasantly surprised at what a special place this is. The murals transport you to the Italian Riviera! The food was excellent, the staff very attentive. I live near Warminster and it was well worth traveling over to somewhere fresh and new to us . We shall recommend this to... More

Being new to the are we had to find new eating places and ask anyone and everyone, but our local builder recommended Amore and we took friends there for the first time not knowing what to expect. Well we have been back on two other occassions.... More

Amore is in my opinion the best Restaurant in Shaftesbury. I only wish I could eat there more often, every time the welcome from the Italian family is wonderful, the food is delicious, portions are generous and excellent value for money. I have never had a meal which I did not enjoy. Can't wait for my next visit.

Did not expect this in Dorset. Funky mid price restaurant with great food and service. Just right for dinner after a busy day seeing the sights.

We tried Amore for the first time yesterday and had a wonderful meal. The mussels were excellent and the tiramisu was lovely. The waiting staff were attentive but not intrusive and we were pleasantly surprised by the bill. Already planning a return visit.
