Simone squeezed us in on a Saturday night. The menu was loaded with delicious options - we enjoyed steaks and sea bass cooked brilliantly! All tables were full which created a real buzz and great atmosphere. Simone and the girls provided very efficient service and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Simone has performed a small miracle. For years the two pubs reigned supreme in the village, but he has managed to create a niche for himself with what may easily be the best coffees in Denholm and lovely Italian dishes that are quite affordable. It really is a meet: friends of mine meet here for a drink and catch up on the latest gossip. Sadly, the shop upstairs is not the same since Rob Armstrong relocated to Minto, but the Meet is still well worth a visit. It also feature regular music do's and concerts.

We have eaten a number of times in this very authentic Italian restaurant and have never been disappointed.
The food is good, the service efficient and friendly, and the wine of good value and excellent quality.
Every time we return to Denholm we make a beeline for this very pleasant venue.

Have eaten there now about 5 times - food is consistently good.

Only downside is if you are unlucky to hit on an evening where there are big parties, or girls nights out, then the noise level makes it impossible to have a conversation, and the food/service can also suffer.

My first return visit in a couple of years, after poor service and inadequate portions for certain dinner courses drove us away after a spell as regular customers. However on this occasion found things greatly improved, plenty of personable and efficient waiting staff who, unlike their predecessors, actually knew how to pronounce the names of Italian dishes [and what was in them] No cause for complaint in the size of the portions, and all our chicken and steak mains were cooked to perfection. I should also mention the excellent and generous chicken liver pate starter, and the superb white chocolate cheesecake which most of us ended the meal with. Good coffee too.
The place always has a buzz, though its unfortunate that there also always seems to be a high proportion of upper-class managerial voices determined to make themselves heard over everyone else.
