4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Visited on a Monday we were greeted with a warm welcome and seated in this lovely wee restraunt. A very traditional Italian restraunt with a warm friendly atmosphere and freshly cooked tastey meals yummy at a reasonable price. This venue is well worth a visit if in Peebles.

This authentic Italian restaurant had delicious food with a cozy, family oriented atmosphere. My husband and I had a lovely anniversary dinner and if we are ever in Peebles again, we would definitely go back to Franco's. The staff and owners were kind and fun to interact with - we felt like true locals. We loved our experience at Franco's!

Dropped in early evening without booking - made very welcome. Staff attentive, food excellent. Went with waiters choice of wine- very good. Ignore the green door entrance, not the most inviting but restaurant upstairs is excellent

Excellent meal Pizza, Canzone, Garlic bread, and Juice to wash it down with, the food was great, my fussy eating Grandchildren kept coming back for more pizza, I believe that the restaurant is beautiful but being up a staircase it is not possible for me to eat out there, but trust me you don't miss the experience as the food...

A very nice restaurant with friendly staff only let down by poor quality food. I'm not sure how it gets 5 stars off people, they really mustn't have anything to measure it against. Not recommended unless you only really like pizza, the rest was drab and the desserts bought in and overpriced.

We had a lovely meal during our stay in Peebles. Service was excellent too. We enjoyed the meal so much we went back later in the week but we realised the restaurant is closed on Tuesdays.

Greeted by huge smiley faces and seated promptly. Extremely busy and full of life. Service was prompt and the waiter was knowledgeable and offered a choice of specials. Bread and wine served immediately and food very quickly after. I was delighted with my Calamari in fresh tomatoe sauce to start and the carbonara as my main. My daughter had the... More

I visited for the Second time with my friends, I thought it couldn't get any better than our last visit to Francos. I was wrong. The Lasagne was out of this world. My wife had the chicken escalope and mushroom sauce which was superb. I will be back very soon,thank you for the wonderful service.

We ate here on a very busy Saturday evening so service was a bit slow and it was so noisy- the very loud music didn't help- that it was difficult to carry on a conversation at times. We enjoyed our pasta dishes and puddings, although the antipasti offered only one piece of bread for four people and the wine was... More
