We were visiting family in Peebles and they suggest this restaurant. What a fantastic job they took us there. My son had the pizza and this truly was the best pizza I've ever tasted. I myself had gnocchi and my partner pasta, our dishes were so tasty and all served piping hot (which seems a rare thing now a days).... More

The food was standard Italian restaurant fare, nice but a little expensive I felt. We were the only customers when we visited (early evening) and got lots of attention form the many staff available!

visited 12/12/14 my main was the Franco sirloin, with mushroom , cream and brandy sauce, had to send it back, the sauce was like porridge and tasteless. Cant understand why neither the chef or the owner allowed it to the table. Poor show, I wont be back

As close to Italy as you can get in the Borders as far as I'm concerned. Fabulous pizza, pasta and risotto at reasonable prices. Friendly attentive staff in a warm and cosy atmosphere and great for a get together with friends or family. Takeaway and home delivery is also fab!

This is a great restaurant. Very cost atmosphere with great attentive and friendly staff. There was a great choice on the menu but my daughter fancied a risotto which wasn't there but that wasn't a problem the chef gladly obliged and it was delicious. Highly recommended.
