A popular restaurant that has been on Marlow High Street for more than 20 years will be replaced by an Italian chain this summer.

The Marlow Bar and Grill, at 92-94 on the High Street, will close its doors and be replaced by Italian restaurant chain Piccolino in just a few months.

Piccolino is set to bring its 'unrivalled Italian dining' to Marlow High Street this July, a spokesperson for the company has confirmed. 

Its other venues already offer customers a wide-ranging menu of traditional dishes with ingredients sourced from suppliers in Tuscany, Florence and Naples in "elegant" surroundings.

Both the Bar and Grill and Piccolino - which has 19 branches across the UK - are owned by the Individual Restaurants group.

And it looks like foodies in Marlow are in for a treat to all their senses, as the unit at 92-94 on the High Street will undergo a £500,000 renovation before opening its doors in July.

Individual Restaurants CEO, Andrew Garton, said: “We are incredibly excited about growing our collection of Italian restaurants in the home counties. It has been our ambition for Piccolino to be a much-loved restaurant at the heart of these communities for years, so it is fantastic to see these ambitions realised in 2024.

“We cannot wait to bring a whole new concept to our loyal customers in Marlow. We hope our longstanding diners will welcome the relaunch of Marlow Bar and Grill as Piccolino, bringing a new culinary offering of authentic Italian dining and the finest ingredients in a beautifully designed restaurant. 

“After more than 20 years serving the community, we believe Piccolino’s stunning interiors and Italian culinary experience will delight Marlow’s food-loving diners.”
