Lovely dinner just the two of us while staying at the hydro on a couples break. Best carbonara I've ever had. Has a really authentic Italian atmosphere, would return if ever back down that way

Large party group and Franco and his team pulled out all stops to make sure everyone was looked after. Food was great, especially the antipasti and the calamari - so fresh tasting and un-rubbery!

Visited second time in the last Three months with my WIfe. Starter was brilliant and the main meal chicken escalope with mushroom sauce was to die for. Excellent service in a family run restaurant. Can't wait to go back!

Food lovely and staff efficient and attentive. Good atmosphere in the place, some may not like that they had a tv showing the football but we enjoyed. A few more options for starters would have been good but what we had was tasty! Would return.

Great food, great service - would recommend and return! The staff couldn't be more helpful with our girls - no problem for them to share our meals. Everything we needed was taken care of!

A bit blah and pricey for what you get. No competition in the town as this is the only Italian restaurant....it shows.

This was our first visit to Peebles and Francos Italian Restaurant. We were greeted immediately and shown to our table overlooking the countryside. I ordered the Calzone and my wife ordered the Carbonara. Both meals were served very quickly and were piping hot. The waiter checked on us a couple of times to ensure everything was okay. I can recommend... More

We visited on a damp Wednesday night and had to wait for around 10 minutes for a table (as we did not book in advance). Francos was very busy and once we had eaten we quickly understood why, as both food and service were excellent. Would definitely recommend, but you might be best phoning ahead for a table.
