Facing the Cairngorm mountains in Aviemore, you’ll find La Taverna. We are a family-run restaurant and pizzeria proud to serve delicious food with great service in a relaxed and warm atmosphere. Family dining, romantic nights out and larger parties are all welcome at La Taverna.


Dine with us a la carte or buffet style. Enjoy Italian classics crafted with love and indulge in irresistible desserts and icecreams. In our oven we’re always baking true Neapolitan style pizzas to enjoy in house or take away.


Stop by for a coffee or pull up a seat at the bar. We’ll be serving up Italian wines and liqueurs, Scottish gins, and beers from around the world. We create seasonal cocktails to warm you in winter and refresh you in summer.


In charge of arranging a group dinner or party? Call us to reserve a table or to book our private hire room for up to 28 people. We know how to have a good time and are happy to welcome stags, hens and birthday parties.


There’s no stiff upper lips and white carpets here. We’re proud to welcome families to dine, relax and enjoy our relaxed, warm atmosphere. Ask us about the kids’ menu or buffet.

Take away

Enjoy our pizza at home. Pop in to choose from the menu or call ahead to place your order so it’s ready when you arrive to collect it. We even have an off site license so you can bring a bottle of wine home too to complete the perfect night in.
