We've been coming to Aviemore for over 10 years and used to be fairly frequent visitors to La Taverna, but after a run of sub-standard pizza's, we gave up and haven't been back for about 5 years. However, after seeing their rising popularity on Trip Advisor and looking at how full the restaurant was every lunchtime, we thought we would give it another try.
We chose their £7.95 lunchtime buffet and the whole family was impressed. The pizza's that had just been brought out were excellent, although those that had been out a while had turned rather hard under the food lamps. The pasta's were also excellent, as was the salad bar. Service was efficient, although our waitress seemed particularly keen to sell us more drinks and didn't manage a single smile during several visits to our table. However, all the other staff we interacted with seemed much more friendly.
So in summary, a good meal for 4 people at a price for less than £40 including drinks is good value nowadays and La Taverna is definitely back on our list of Aviemore restaurants to use.
