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.

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.

I was on my way back from Selkirk with my son & decided to stop off for lunch in Peebles. It was last Sunday and the town was busy. Looked around & decided that we would try Francos. 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...
