Added to our annual list of favourites when staying in Aviemore in September with a very warm welcome by young industrious staff, attention to detail and an excellent choice of Italian dishes plus the value for money buffet of salad, pasta and piazza! There always is a buzz about the place catering for all ages and special occasions. We enjoyed... More

One of us ordered the buffet, the other a menu item. The buffet was fresh, delicious, and hot. Had great salads, 4 different types of pizzas, 4 pastas, and some sides. Also had desserts (including gelato). The menu item ordered arrived in 30-45 minutes so the rests of us was done eating. Recommend to go early.

Visited La Taverna with daughter for lunch, not for the first time the food and service was very good. Minestrone soup was seriously tasty and my rib eye steak was huge, quality and cooked to perfection as requested. For the seriously hungry, they have an all you can eat buffet, excellent value for money. It is also family friendly and... More

We came across this all you can eat restaurant on a recent trip around Scotland. It is very good value and plenty of choices. The view from the restaurant is also very good and free parking available next to the restaurant.

Our family went to La Taverna near the end of my recent week's holiday in Aviemore. We wished we went there earlier - the all you can eat buffet was well stocked and the food (pizzas, pastas and various salad was good quality. My boys (10 & 6) really enjoyed it and ate until they would pop - even my... More

We were surprised this Italian did "eat as much as you like buffet" at dinner time as well as during the day. It was recommended by locals and plenty locals eating there which is a good sign. Food was good, service fast, very reasonably priced. Ideal when eating out with kids to let them try new things as buffet. Maybe... More

The kids just love La Taverna. It's great value for money and how can you miss the mark with pizza and pasta.

Eaten here before and it is very good value for the all you can eat option. The food is not out of this world but is well prepared and tasty. It was the Harley Davidson weekend when we were there so not sure how busy it is normally but it was packed out and everyone seemed to be having a... More

A meal here is one of the first things I do when I visit Aviemore. We had a really good meal, the steak was perfectly prepared, maybe the best I've had. The staff were as friendly as always. Looking forward to the next visit.

Went here twice a year ago and it was very good, but not anymore the staff are a bit cold and the food has gone down hill a lot since our last visit. All the pizzas were over done and tasted the same and the pasta dishes were a bit tasteless .
