While visiting peebles for a few nights ate here twice. Everything we had on both nights was just amazing. All staff and owner very friendly with plenty of banter for the kids. Atmosphere relaxed despite how busy it was. Strongly recommend this place but book to make sure you are not disappointed. .

superb pizza, thin crust, spicy sausage, plus the owner Franco was kind enough to carry it through himself to the pub next door where we sitting on the terrace having our drink in the glorious sunshine.

The restaurant itself is fine, however, it's the food which was just not good on many levels. My steak was not of good quality to begin with, I also think that it was taken from the freezer. It lacked any taste and was tough. I just think it's sad to be served meat of this quality, considering we have access... More

Wow. Peebles has a winner here. We were very hungry and called at c. 10.30pm to check opening hours. Franco's response: "we will stay open until you're meal is finished". Stupendous service and a great welcome. We have been back multiple times and Franco himself is a credit to Italy. Mysterious on the outside, warm and welcoming inside. Not to... More

Then... More

Staff very friendly. Could have picked a few things off the menu, it was a really good choice and the food didn't disappoint, very tasty. Reasonably priced.

We ate here for my Birthday, earlier this week and mostly enjoyed it. I had the mussels from specials board, generous portion but too salty for my taste. My husband had bruschetta and although nice and fresh, seemed expensive for the portion. Husband's salmon main with capers & tomatoes was very tasty according to him & very pleased restaurant agreed... More

My wife and I went for a meal at Franco's last May and the food was absolutely brilliant, as was the service. We will definitely be making a return visit when we are in Peebles this coming weekend. Get the wine ready!!
