I eat at La Taverna often and am never disappointed. The food, staff and atmosphere are bright, cheery and a real pleasure. The staff are very friendly with customers and each other which gives the whole place a genuine friendly feeling. I often take friends there and they always ask to go back. After a day spent walking or cycling... More

So good we had take out twice during our stay in aviemore. Pizzas and pasta are amazingly good. slightly more pasta in the takeout dish would have been nice. Didn't eat in restaurant so can't comment but they do a buffet.

Attractive alpine style restaurant on the outskirts of Aviemore. Excellent proper Italian pizzas and a very good value buffet. Warm friendly service, decent wines and splendid local beers. Great views of the Cairngorms.

Love Italian food, and had been told this was a good place to eat. Wasn't disappointed, ended up having three courses, and all three were delicious, staff were polite and friendly with first class service, they also offer a buffet which is very popular. It's a busy restaurant so you may have to book to avoid disappointment.

Opted for the buffet at £12.95. Great value and offered a selection of pizza, pasta and salads plus desert. Highlights were the bolognese, pizza and ice cream. Next time will just go for pizza. We were annoyed that 5 adults were seated at a table for 4 so not a great deal of room. Staff were attentive collecting plates but... More

Busy busy restaurant so book in advance or be turned away at the door. We opted for the £12.95 all you can eat buffet , it turned out to be good quality food - pizza, pasta, cold salad items (coleslaw, tomatoes, orzo pasta, pickled red cabbage, pickled beetroot, cous cous, chickpeas) and dessert (ice cream, jelly, and various cakes).
