We visited as a family and all three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The food was hot, fresh and delicious, service friendly and efficient and prices good value. There was a good range of choice on the menu including excellent specials. Restaurant had real character and a lovely relaxed ambience.

Surprised restaurant was so quiet as the food and service are excellent. Staff couldn't be more attentive and friendly. The owner chatted to us and had some very interesting tales from Sorrento. Wine was more expensive than usual and there was no set menu. However, food was delicious and OK price wise. I did suggest having a sauce on the... More

We were staying nearby Peebles on holiday and just popped in on the off chance. They seated us straight away, and were lovely. The food was gorgeous. (Although I felt terribly guilty that I couldn't finish my desert. The food was just so filling!) the food was brought to the table incredibly quickly. All in all, I'd highly recommend this... More

We had lunch here. Two of us opted for the three course at £9.50 and the other chose from the menu. One had pasta, one had pizza and the other had chicken with spaghetti. We had tomato soup as a starter and it was delicious. Really enjoyed the main courses, to finish we just had ice cream. Would definitely eat... More

Visited Francos on Old Years Night with family and in laws. Not my first visit this year. Once again the staff were very attentive and helpful. The menu is standard Italian fare, usually well presented. Atmosphere lively with a good number of families there. The staff never seem to get flustered no matter how busy they are. My family and...
