Pizzas on buffet all taste similar and pasta just ok , I think better of eating from the menu rather than the buffet , nice selection of sweets, but in general enjoyable .

We have eaten here as a family many times, our high points have always been the pizzas but sadly we really disliked the buffet and their pasta dishes. Do eat here if you fancy nice pizza.

We have some amazing places to eat at home in Edinburgh. we have best pizza in Scotland, sorry. It was really good value for money. The deserts were not home made. Everything else was, and was tasty enough.

We stay regularly in Aviemore and a trip there feels incomplete without a visit to La Taverna. The Pizza and Pasta buffet is fairly simple, but is ideal for family dining and very reasonably priced.

After a day of out door activity, biking, skiing, hiking etc etc, this is always where we go for the buffet. The food isn't fancy at all but there is plenty of choice and plenty of carbs to set you up for another day of activity. Service is alway lovely and efficient and it is very good value. It appears...

We found this place after checking tripadvisor for somewhere that would actually take and fulfill a telephone order from the Macdonald Woodland Lodges. Friendly and efficient staff. Pizza's and pasta dishes were delicious the only down side was they DO NOT deliver.

Try and eat here at least once per year, and it never disappointed us, always brilliant and fantastic staff, buffet is very good and excellent value, but personally I prefer of the menu, topping the night of with a ice cold glass of lemoncello ;-)

Seated really quickly. Waiter really knew his drinks and recommended an excellent Italian Cider. Waitress was very helpful and friendly throughout our meal and the waiter even recommended a dessert and really knew what he was talking about. Both of them throughout gave excellent service. The food was fantastic and the best Italian food we have tasted. Highly recommended.
