Cannot speak highly enough of this restaurant - consistent with friendly and welcoming staff, great chef. We are soon to be moving and will miss this hostelry the most. Will soon be posting from the Salisbury area - hope to find one as good!

We've been customers at Francesco's in Marlow for around 8 years and can honestly say that we've never had a bad meal there. The welcome is warm and the staff are friendly and genuine. The menu is great - lots of variety with interesting dishes...More

This was our second visit to Francesco's and once again the food was really good. Piping hot and really tasty, and reasonable prices. Cannot fault this restaurant, the staff are friendly, it's clean and you know you'll get a good meal unlike some Italian restaurant...More

As great as the chain Italian restaurants are, it's always a bonus to find a fabulous independent Italian restaurant here in England & Francesco's certainly fits that bill perfectly. It's one of those that doesn't look much, but then if you've ever been lucky enough...More

Lovely menu and always well cooked and presented Italian food. Certainly no chain type mass produced food but really authentic Italian fare. The offers are not as enticing as they once were. They should bring back the 2 for 1 mid week.
