Had a lovely meal. Food was good and reasonably priced. The service and the atmosphere was excellent.
The only thing that let it down slightly was that the vegetables of the day were boiled potatoes and garden peas. Not very exciting for a restaurant of this standard.

I was on vacation at Waverley Castle and was in Melrose looking for lunch on a wet Weds. We looked at a few menus and this took our interest. What a fabulous place. The food was amazing and some of the best Italian food I have eaten. The owner was very welcoming and spent time talking to us and explaining the food. It was a piece of Italy in the Scottish Borders! I would come to Melrose just to eat here. A must visit, you won't be disappointed!

I have eaten here several times and the staff are welcoming and friendly. The portions are not big but the atmosphere is great and the food very good. Sometimes the air could be a little warmer and once the coffee was disappointing but overall, good value for money.

We have had dinner at Monte Cassino several times in the past few years and the food had always been consistently good. There are always interesting specials on offer, and the regular menu never disappoints. Our favourites are usually pasta main courses, although the fish is fresh and usually wonderfully prepared. The house wine is excellent and the list also has some other interesting bottles. It is always fun to go and have a great authentic Italian meal.

Finding ourselves in Melrose again we decided to give this place another try.What a difference the staff seem to have been on a charm course,much better than our last visit.
The food as always was great and arrived promptly. Drinks a tad pricey but not a bad as some places we have been. Guess you just have to catch the staff on a good day going off what others are reporting. LEFT A TIP THIS TIME.
