Good service but we would hate to be here when busy, tables so close together felt claustrophobic.

Family night out to celebrate a special occasion. Lived on the door step for many years and have never been. Wasn't disappointed. Fantastic meal. Good service in a wonderful old building. Will be going again.

That heady mix of garlic, tomatoes, basil, cooked long and slow to form the basis of so many delicious Italian meals through the starters, to the pasta, on the pizza and in the mains. This restaurant... More

I've visited buon apps a number of times and always loved it, but hubby had never been so we decided it would be a good venue for our wedding anniversary celebration. We chose the special gin and melon liqueur cocktail as displayed on the board , but I really did not like it (very sweet and sickly) and could not... More

We hadn't visited this restaurant for a few years but my wife picked it out to celebrate mother's day with our daughter. Although we had booked for an early sitting the restaurant was busy with a large family celebration and we were kept waiting for our table. The tables are upstairs and as the food is served from up their... More

Visited tonight for early bird dinner. Welcomed by owner, and lead into lovely stone room in the old factory. The food was excellent and the service attentive. We both had a lovely meal at reasonable prices. Good choice of quality wines. It seems that the restaurant is moving to the centre of Outlet in the near future and one can... More

Buon Apps remains an excellent restaurant, although it seems to be getting pricey. The quality of the food remains superb and the service is friendly and efficient, making it my favourite place to go for dinner with friends. The regional set menus look attractive and we may try that next time. Prices seem to have gone up in recent months,... More
