We had two delicious pizzas - Il Padrone and The White Lady. We did not expect such a good pizza in the UK. The waitress from Poland was truly friendly and helpful.

Went here late at night(10.30 ) after being delayed at work as nowhere else open or serving food. Had expected little after disappointing sea food starter here in past but was very agreeably surprised by positive attitude of staff. Was told they had stopped serving from the menu but could do pizzas. This they managed in quick time. Very acceptable... More

Used to come here a lot when I lived in the village, visit last month with my family and was bitterly disappointed. As we didnt have a lot of money to 'go out' for my Birthday dinner we decided that they offered good value for money.......................WRONG! Food was cold and dry, clearly a lot of it had been sat out... More

Didn't sit in but got takeaway pizza, pasta, calzone, salad and tiramisu. Everything was fresh and tasty and we really enjoyed everything. Will go back and possibly sit in next time too !

My partner and I chose dined here in June 14. We opted for the buffet menu as neither of us were particularly hungry and thought a full main course would be too much for each of us. The buffet had a good selection of Pizzas and Pastas and they were very tasty. My only porblem was the pasta was lukewarm... More

We ate here choosing the a la carte menu over the Buffett option. We chose the antipasto starter which was really delicious followed by the beef lasagna and the Romana PIzza agin both were really tasty. The waiter guided us to an excellent Sicilian red which was excellent and a perfect accompaniment to our relaxed meal. Great service great food.

We stopped at La Taverna for a quick reasonably inexpensive evening meal after spending the day in the Cairngorms and it was everything we could have asked for. Not only was the service incredibly quick, but the pizzas we tried were very tasty. I would definitely stop there again and we were very grateful that it had more charm than... More
