We hadn't been here for a long time, although we're in Aviemore every month, so decided to visit this time. It was around 8.30pm and rammed jamb packed busy as usual. My wife and I both opted to order off the menu rather than buffet and chose pasta dishes and found them tasty enough and decent portions. We seemed to... More

This is a busy Italian trattoria serving tasty reasonably priced food. Service was very efficient with cheerfull staff who made a big fuss of our three year old.Thoughtful touches included brining his pizza with our starters so he didn't have to wait.They also coped really well when he dropped a glass, thanks Marlena! We will be back next time in... More

Always worth a visit for the atmosphere and excellent food provided, the non-stop buffet is well worth the money, but, the varied menu can certainly show off the skills of staff behind the scenes.

We stopped here for dinner after going to see the reindeer in the Cairngorms, it has the bonus of being a self service restaurant but the food is miles from proper Italian so if your a real Italian food lover avoid this place, If your starving and looking for a place to pig out then go mad.

Been in a few times now and I always go with the budget whilst my wife being gluten intolerant, can't have pasta but instead has a gluten free pizza. Great to have that for her. I always take lots of macaroni when here because whoever has the recipe, give it to me, it's great, love that dish. A very busy... More

This restaurant offers an excellent variety of food served by a very friendly staff. There are special buffet menus available as well as table service and very handy for the adjoining Motel . Although the restaurant does not serve breakfasts there are a few eating place nearby.

We decided on takeout after a busy day to take back to our tent. 2 pizzas, gnocchi and garlic bread. Very tasty, reasonably priced and ready after only 15 minutes (so we popped to Aviemore and back). I would definitely recommend food from here.
