A sample of Italian simplicity and flavour

During a mountain biking/golfing trip with the boys we sampled Francos. Great flavour and welcome. Simple pastas and pizzas mostly with good wines to accompany.

My girlfriend booked us into here with some friends and we were not disappointed. From the welcoming atmosphere to the nice decor, it was a pleasant place to eat dinner. The food was hot and delicious, all four of us were very happy with it. I also liked the Forza Azzuri beer that the waiter recommended to us, rather than... More

Visiting a friend in Peebles popped in for tea. Very welcoming staff. A varied menu - reasonable prices. I had a pepperoni, pepper and olive pizza and it was lovely- a nice thin and crispy base. Lots of locals in eating - lots of people ordering take away, so clearly a popular place. Enjoyed the food and would pop in... More

I have been here on numerous occasions. All I can say is that I have never had a bad meal. The service is great and the food is absolutely delicious. My all time favourite is the spaghetti carbonara. There is a nice relaxed atmosphere and you are made to feel at home. Can highly recommend and will definitely be back... More

Visited Franco's in the Easter break. Very busy little place. The food was ok and I would visit again but we did find as a party of six we were cramped in and I found the seats quite uncomfortable. The food was reasonably priced as too the wine. The staff were friendly enough but not the best italian I've been... More
