Booked for saturday night, arrived and place was not busy which was strange as many other places looked very full. Had olives and garlic bread which was expensive for size /quality. Child had full size pizza and eat it all, I had calzone and partner, risotto. All ok, but nothing great. The wine (chianti) was not great as well, but drinkable. Desserts were standard, but they had no grappa (the waiter said they don't have it as people don't order it). This is surprising, and means real italians don't frequent the place. Overall, it was a bit unwelcoming, but food ok.

Popped in for Lunch, Staff are both friendly and attentive, nothing too much trouble. Food was excellent and varied choice of Specials, great value Set Menu and Al a Carte.
Several Francesco's dotted around these Valley, but I think this Marlow one is a little gem.
