Great find in Marlow

Great food coupled with friendly, attentive and accommodating staff, exactly what you look for in a restaurant. Portion sizes are generous with Italian classics executed very well indeed and all at a reasonable price. A perfect choice for any occasion Marco

The staff were very friendly and food was well presented and delicious, they provided plenty of vegetables and potato choices in separate plates/bowls. There is good space between tables so you can enjoy conversations with your friends without hearing the other tables. The dessert trolley is a sight for sore eyes, plenty of choice. I enjoyed my time there. A... More

A new local favourite! Fabulous lunch meal that we recommend for business, personal, romantic,or family. The lunch menu is full of choice, the servings generous, and the food delicious. We enjoyed gorgeous lamb that simply fell from the bone and a fresh breast of chicken with excellent vegetables and perfectly-finished potatoes. A bottle of wine, a wonderful dessert trolley, and...

I used to use it for business lunches and it was always good. Yesterday we used it with an Aunt, and two Uncles to celebrate what would have been my Dad's 100th birthday. They really looked after us. The Mussels were great, the Monkfish and Sea Bass superb.The dessert trolley should be made illegal. You can't stop yourself! The service... More

We fancied getting out of Henley for lunch and booked the Villa d'Este on a whim. I believe it is the sister restaurant of the Villa Marina in Henley, which we have yet to try. First off, parking - an important consideration in a town like Marlow, where parking can be an absolute nightmare. The good news is that there... More

The meal arrived , nicely presented ,well cooked and very enjoyable. No one... More
