If you're a walker, this is your place after a long and hard walk in the Cairn Gorms. Epic volumes of food at the buffet including unlimited pasta and pizza combined with a selection of cold salads and desserts all for a reasonably priced £12.95. Service is efficient with empty plates picked up in seconds. As per previous reviews, don't... More

The staff were very attentive, the menu and buffet options were great and the food was delicious. We are looking forward to our return visit hopefully soon.

We weere a party of 7 who all decided to have the buffet, all you want to eat for £13. There was only one complaint and that was that one of the pasta was too spicy for the dinner. Not a problem on a buffet. The only downside was the price of the drinks were a little high compared to... More

About a 10 min walk from the centre of Aviemore. Lovely friendly Italian. We decided on the buffet although you can also chose from a seperate menu. It was really warm but that is probably because the place was packed (always a good sign) but apart from that and the usual buffet pushing and shoving, we thoroughly enjoyed the food.... More

Service prompt with a smile. However, please ask staff not to chew gum whilst they are on duty as it is very off-putting. Party of 10 mixed ages from 6-70 years. 9 of us had the buffet which had a great variety of salads, pastas, pizzas and desserts - all you can eat and great flavours! 1 had lasagne which... More

Offers standard Italian fair from both a buffet and a menu. Salads are ok and pizzas thin and crispy. I know people love and rave about this place but I found it a little so-so. The main reason for this is the treadmill feel of the eating area; people in, people out, quick, quick. The food isn't bad. The service... More

We have been going to Aviemore at least twice a year for the last few years but for one reason or another have never actually been to this place. We always intend to do so as it always looks very busy. This visit we did and we were delighted we did so. We arrived around 4.45 ( kids hungry!) and... More

Excellent food,the buffet was great and my kids really enjoyed the pasta,pizza and especially the puddings. As an adult I thought it was great too,salad bar selection was magic also. Only negative I would say was the amount off human traffic in and out of door that we was sat next too was a pain but the place was busy... More
