Good authentic Italian food

Went midweek but was still quite busy. Good food and staff very attentive. Manager even gave me spare spectacles as I left my pair in the hotel. Prices reasonable and good atmosphere.

Had a fantastic lunch of Polenta Mediterraneo. Prepared by Franco. The best Italian restaurant in Scotland.

Visited here twice during the Enduro World Series round at Peebles. Both nights were good but the service matched that. The pizzas were just what we needed after a long day on the bikes. Great buzz to the place as well as it was full, really enjoyed the food, recommended.

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
