what a super place, Just what you would not expect to find in Melrose.9 in our party,-menu is varied,portions are generous, there are lots of staff milling about,-(some could be abrupt in their manner) wine was excellent. It is a large place,and very busy,therefor very very noisy, and tables are close to-gether,may-be weekdays would be quieter!

Four of us had evening meal here last Saturday and had a fantastic meal in very pleasant surroundings. The owner and his staff were cheery , friendly and efficient. The food was out of this world and the wine perfect. We will be back and thanks Monte Casino.

We had decent take away pizza from Monte Cassino. Ordered by phone and all seemed very efficient. Children ate enthusiastically. Just right for a casual family meal.

After a hard day's cycling we opted for this restaurant as a change form the usual chips with everything fare and were well rewarded by efficient and friendly staff and good food.

Sometimes you find a gem in an unexpected place and this was one for us. Superb and authentic Italian food in a little Borders town. We had dinner without reservations on a Saturday and were well treated and well fed. I enjoyed their bread thoroughly and we shared a delicious antipasto plate.

Brilliant food and service on a busy Friday night. The seafood pizza is out of this world. Can't believe there are many better Italian restaurants in the Borders.

Good to see the Monte Cassino mentioned in today's "Times" as "a great Italian restaurant". Well deserved - and I agree.
