Always have a meal here when I am in Aviemore. The buffet is good, but the a la carte is excellent. Focaccia to start, then pasta washed down by local beer, a tasty satisfying meal and you won't break the bank.

We eat here regularly on our way through Aviemore and are never disappointed. The staff are always friendly and happy to help regardless of how busy they are. There is a menu or buffet and everything we have had has been very good. A lovely family business.

We visited Avimore and on our first night, got a carry out pizza. It was fantastic. We then went for a meal on our second night, on entering the restaurant we were greeted by staff and introduced to our waiter. The service was really good for the whole evening especially as it was so busy. The food..... what can I... More

Can't recommend this Italian enough. The buffet is brilliant; plenty of selection and it's brought out regularly. Great selection of pastas and pizzas. Fantastic deserts are also included in the buffet. It's also remarkably cheap. The buffet for my family came to £44; including soft drinks.

the place was buzzing, service was quick and polite, and the ambiance very good. This was not matched by the quality of the food, pizza was overdone with the crust blackened, but tasty content, the spagbol was nothing special and overal the experience was disappointing.

The menu sounds great which is really disappointing as I opted for the buffet which was distinctly average. Yes you can eat all you want but when the food lacks in flavour, variety and creativity, it manages to curb your desire to eat very quickly. The staff were very pleasant and attentive so 5 out of 5 in that area... More

Called in here on our first night in Aviemore, I got the bruschetta which was really garlicky and a bit burnt! My husband got mozzarella on toast which again was too garlicky. We got pizza between us which was quite nice and the staff were attentive! Would go back without the bruschetta!

We always visit La Taverna when in Aviemore and we are never disappointed. Good food at reasonable prices with friendly attentive service. The restaurant is always busy so I would advise visitors to book.
