We never fail to visit La Taverna at least once during our annual week stay in Aviemore. Always busy yet never had to wait for a table. Excellent selection of great Italian food, well cooked and at great prices. Highly recommended

Our first visit here, we opted for the Buffet as it looked great for a modest £12.95 a head. Lots of different fresh pizzas and nice pasta dishes with tasty sauces. There was a good selection of different salads and garlic bread. Was pleasantly surprised at the desserts - as well as the usual ice creams there were really nice... More

Visit this restaurant every couple of months and every visit I'm pleasantly surprised. When you think the staff and the service can't get any better they do. The food is as close to authentic Italian as you can get (I lived in Italy for several years). The pizzas taste amazing and the pasta dishes are amazing too. The place is... More

Speedy service. For place of that size it was quite impressive. Food arrived rapid quick. Exactly what I expected. Simple Italian food, that cannot go wrong. Best place in Aviemore for speedy cheap dinner. V.recommended.

Lovely little place, great atmosphere and fantastic staff. I would advise booking as it always seems to be busy. My husband, 4 year old daughter and I, went for an evening meal and all went for the buffet option which was fantastic value for money. The pizza particularly was delicious. My daughter loved it. The wine was nice too. I... More

Visited twice during our long weekend in Aviemore - hubby was keen to try it having seen the restaurant featured on a tv programme. First visit was a Friday night - we didn't have a booking so were advised that it could be 30-40 minute wait, which we were happy to wait. Amazingly, by the time we'd ordered a drink... More

I ate at this busy restaurant on a Friday evening, having booked in advance (recommended). The food was excellent and exceptional value for money. I had the Focaccia Della Casa to start, the focaccia bread was outstanding; I doubt better is to be had anywhere. I then had the starter size portion of Penne al Salmone, again excellent. The house... More
