    Lovely food, good service and reasonably priced. Lovely atmosphere. Only feedback would be that a few of the guests didn’t enjoy the lamb very much- but everyone else throughly enjoyed their food.

    Food was lovely and staff great. Resturant was busy (Sat 7pm) so lots of atmosphere, although some noise due to parties too. We have been several times over the past year and will be back! Thanks

    The service slowed after our main course whereby after 45 minutes of being sat with no dessert menus, we had to ask 3 times to have some pudding. When my friends lemon cheesecake came out, it was warm (should have been cold and solid from the fridge) and there were thick’s bits of mould on the back. The waiter did not apologise for this when we returned the inedible cheesecake. I asked for it to be removed from the bill which is was but nothing else was for compensation nor did we ever get an apology. Really makes you worry about their food hygiene.

    Fantastic restaurant with delicious food. Service is prompt and timed to perfection. Atmosphere is great if a little loud but that gives privacy as you can’t be overheard. Only negative is portion sizes are too big!

    Generous portions of authentic tasty Italian food served cheerfully and efficiently in this gem of a restaurant in the lovely village of Overton. The menu was attractive and extensive and priced realistically and was very good value. Lovely atmosphere and used by all ages and families. Thoroughly recommended and will be visited repeatedly in the future.

    Brought our great niece who we were looking after. She loves the restaurant and wanted to show us. We chose a quiet area so we could talk but could have been somewhere more lively if we had wanted. Pity we don't live nearer or we would be regulars

    Amore serves great food and is well priced, the range of dishes and types are good for all dietary requirements. The food itself is great quality and the portions are just right. Good selection of wines etc. The restaurant is a lot bigger than it looks but it is still a really nice atmosphere, not too loud but not awkwardly quiet, the staff are great, friendly and attentive. They also don't do the classic of asking you mid mouthful how is the food, maybe they know it's great or maybe it's to give you time to enjoy it, either way I prefer not being asked, so it was a plus from me.

    What a lovely ambience for a quiet dinner for two. Attentive (but not too attentive) staff who were willing to humour my awful Italian (practising for a holiday). Nothing rushed and altogether a great evening out.
