The buffet here is excellent value for money and the pizza is particularly good. Staff were very helpful and there was a very friendly family-orientated atmospher about the place.

We booked for a Saturday night as the place was really busy. Great for large groups and families with plentiful food options, even for those vegetarians or needing gluten free. Particularly recommend the uova al ........., a spinach and egg dish for starters. Staff really helpful and genuinely interested with none of that irritating 'enjoy!' stuff

Easy place to park near the restaurant and the staff here are very friendly. We arrived with no reservation on a Friday evening and got a table no problem. The Pizzas we had were okay but not as good as we are used to. This is a popular restaurant so it may have just been because they were busy?

A nice air of Italian authenticity, friendly staff and good value house red wine. We noticed that the 'no children alone at the help yourself buffet' rule wasn't being enforced, but this didn't affect our enjoyment of our meal. Highly recommended for a relaxed meal out in Aviemore.
