We chose the dinner buffet where you can have a variety of pizza, pasta, salad and dessert. The food was o.k and freshly made, except the pasta was already covered in sauce and so it was quite soaked and not al dente. The offered cakes from the desert buffet were all defrosted and average taste. Service was all friendly and... More

We ate here twice during a recent stay in Aviemore. The food is fairly typical Anglo-Italian and portion sizes are generous. Not a gourmet destination but if you're hungry this place will do the job.

Not fine dining but really good pizza and pasta, we go here every year and it suits all the family. We like the buffet meal which is really good value, help yourself to salad starter, pizza and pasta and dessert. Only problem was it was very noisy when we visited because the place was packed, but that wouldnt put me... More

La Taverna is THE place to eat for a Trattoria style atmosphere and genuine Scottish italian owners instead of some faceless chain. The buffet is great value if you're hungry.

Visited on the busiest weekend of the year the restaurant was packed but the food was excellent and staff very attentive. We had the buffet and the choices was good and all freshly prepared.

We were staying in nearby Grantown but it is not easy to find places to eat out in the evening in the area. We were recommended this as a good pizza place and managed to book a table during the day for the evening - essential in the holiday season. It is a cheerful, good value, family style pizzeria. We...

We had the buffet and the food was delicious and there was never any wait as the buffet was always kept topped up with fresh pizza /pasta etc. The staff were extremely helpful... More
