“What a great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Yes, it may look slightly un-inviting but do not be put off - what wonderful Italian food. Extensive menu, creative dishes and so authentic was the pizza I took the rest home for dinner, a superb re-heat which my husband enjoyed. The pasta was to die for with fresh seafood. We will definitely be back.

“Little taste of Italy in the Scottish Borders”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

H20 has one of the best menus in Galashiels followed by its very reasonable prices. The food is amazing from either the restaurant or the take away menu especially the sea food risotto. Always great choice for children & my daughters favourite for pizzas. Atmosphere is always inviting & relaxing. Magnifico !

“Superb Italian cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

You like Italian cooking? Try this little gem. Here is an example of the food available. How about the best 'Seafood Spaghetti' - an understated title for this dish, for sure - that I have probably ever had (including mainland Italy, Sardinia and Sicily) served by cracking staff in a lively trendy environment. Apologies now if you are not an amateur chef yourself. Loads of fat mussels, tons of small tasty shrimps, plenty of king prawns, beautifully tender squid, perfect chilli balance, not too much tomato in the subtle background sauce (bags of flavour - the genuine 'less is more' Italian style, (not a sea of gloop). Wow! The sea must be closer than I thought. Great range of mixed starters and fabulously crafted cocktails on offer as well. My daughter is addicted to the incredible pizzas and gorgonzola ravioli's that are also available. Smashing pricing, good music and an atmosphere that made me feel young'ish again. Eat your heart out Jamie Oliver's chain - you need lessons from these guys.

First visit and definitely not the last. Best pizza in the Borders by far. Friendly, professional staff couldn't have been more attentive. Comfortable and modern surroundings. Would recommend highly to others to try and will be taking advantage of their new take way and delivery service on many an occasion I am sure...Best place to eat out in Gala my miles !!
