Loved this restaurant . Three course lunch for £10. Nice glass of wine, very nice staff and gorgeous views. Highly recommend it.

I ate the pizza here when I visited 7 years ago and was hoping it was the same owners and same pizza. It was. The place is owned by a guy named Franco who is from the Amalfi Coast in Italy. The restaurant has been renovated and I will definitely return to try other dishes.

It was after 2.00pm and they were less than half full. Staff were friendly and the menus had some think for everyone.... More

We found this place on a whim as we were looking around the Peebles area on a Sunday at half 5, probably not the best time for dinner but it was open and we were hungry. When we first arrived, there were only a couple other tables occupied and it looked like a lovely quaint Italian place. We were seated... More

This was not the first time we have eaten in Franco's which serves good food at good prices and gives excellent service. The place has a great atmosphere and was buzzing. A good choice of daily specials as well as a good regular menu. Thoroughly recommended.

Ate here on Friday 12th Sept- great food and reasonable priced wine. We had pizza and meatballs both of which were of a very high quality and reasonable price, if you are looking to eat in Peebles we would highly recommend (the pub underneath is very nice as well and a proper traditional pub - think it's called the Inn...

I have been here on numerous occasions and have received the same high standard of food each time. There is plenty to choose from on the menu and regular specials too. I always leave with a full satisfied stomach. Can highly recommend.
