Visited this restaurant with my 2 year old. Excellent service, berry family friendly and the food was superb and good value. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this gem of a restaurant.

We came to Peebles for an overnight stay at the Hydro, did not fancy the menu there so decided to take a trip into town. So glad we found Franco's! We had garlic bread and bruschetta for starters and then lasagne and tortellini con funghi for main, it was the best pasta I have had in a long time and... More

I loved this small intimate Italian restaurant. Franco is a character and he and his excellent staff produced a really great supper.

Had an excellent meal here tonight. Antipasto superb and definitely needed to share rather than eat the lot. Pizzas good and capers added to mine without demur. Lasagne voted good by friend. Cassata great too!

We are in Peebles for a night enroute North of Scotland to England. We noticed Franco's and phoned to book a table for 1730. We arrived bang on time and were shown to our window seat table. There were already a fair few people in and a large party arrived just after us. Service was attentive. The food was fantastic.... More

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.
