Proper Italian pizza! We had the menus pizza, can't talk for the buffet. Brilliant flavours and well made. Service great and attentive. Definitely worth a visit.

Ate twice here last week whilst on our family holiday, one a la carte and the next the buffet. This place gets rammed and for good reason. Great food and good for kids and vegetarians too. Drinks very reasonably priced too and all very efficient. Booking definitely advised!

We recently stayed in Aviemore and ate in this restaurant two nights running the food was so good! Best Italian meal we've had in a long time. Staff were great and very child friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them, fantastic!

I almost wrote this place off because it looks like a massive pub with a sort of strange mixture of vintage pub tat hanging off every available space, mixed with the kind of decor you might get in a pizza hut, and because it seems to be permanently rammed with people queuing for the buffet. But the food is actually... More

Stopped in for lunch. We were starving and thought "it's pizza and pasta, hard to get that wrong". Having been told this was a REALLY family friendly place and having seen that it is busy all day and night with loads of kids we didn't expect much (we don't have children so were put off). Don't be fooled by the... More

After a solid day in the mountains all you can eat pizza, pasta and pudding seemed like a brilliant way to top off the day. The food was good and the pizza was fresh and piping hot. Would be a great place for a big group of friends down for the weekend/week but you do need to book as it... More
