Visited last summer and called in for a pizza buffet. The price was reasonable and it was an 'all you could eat' style buffet. The pizza and other pasta/salad dishes included in the buffet were good and tasty. The atmosphere was pleasant, with quite private areas to eat. The staff were very pleasant too. Well worth a visit.

Four of us ordered takeaway pizzas from the takeaway menu and the bill was £47.00! Quick efficient service but the price was large considering we only ordered 4 pizzas and 2 dips. Wish we had gone for the "all you can eat" buffet!

We had dinner here with family and loved the atmosphere. It was very busy so am glad we had a reservation. Can either do buffet option all you can eat or alacarte. Buffet had a good selection of salads, pasta and more pasta! Garlic bread, chips and pizza. It was great to see the food replenished so quickly. Good selection... More

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!

Bland tasteless food really was a let down! Never had italian food that tasted so bad, mac and cheese missing the cheese just a watery mess with not even a handful of unmelted cheese. Was luke warm ended up eating only a mouthful of chips only gave it 1(terrible) as i couldnt give it less
