Second time I have been here while down visiting family ( they eat here a lot) Lovely place with a friendly atmosphere and attentive service staff On both occasions I have got the lobster ravioli which is fantastic - I highly recommend this but the menu is varied and on watching others meals arrive they look to be just as...

We count ourselves to be regulars because of all that is offered in the restaurant. Until last night we never came home disappointed. Then bang. Our main courses were served cold on cold plates. The plates were not too clean either !! Two pasta meals were replaced with hot food on hot plates. The fish dish came on a cold... More

Buon Apps Regional menus are always worthy of a mid-week visit. This week the chef excelled with an amazing seafood lasagne. The food and wine are invariably excellent and the hospitality of Alessandro and his team makes for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Thank you

Very good service and Italian-style dinner. The menu is extensive and there is a good selection of wines. I would ask not to be seated at the table at the top of the stairs - uncomfortable and in the traffic for the kitchen and people arriving/leaving. I would not go again unless guaranteed not to sit at the top of... More

My wife and I visit this restaurant on a regular basis, Situated in an old mill building alongside the river Wharfe in Otley. It is very tastefully decorated with the original exposed stonework and ceiling mounted pullies etc. The menu offers a comprehensive range of traditional Italian cuisine, all the food is freshly cooked and is of a very high...

Buon Apps is a delightful place. The food was very tasty the wine delectable. Service was perfect. The view of the river is great, must visit again as the longer days roll in. Recommend this to those who enjoy good Italian cuisine served by friendly staff. By the way, loads of space in the car park.

Lovely restaurant, nicest pizzas we've had in a while. Our nearly 2 year old was made to feel welcome, which always helps us relax and enjoy our meal out. Don't be put off by the edge of town location, it was a really lovely venue and meal.

Was surprisingly full for a Wednesday night, but having eaten there I can see why. Friendly staff who were attentive without being obtrusive. Good menu and wine choice available. The food was good quality, good quantity and well presented. I can't say it was amazing flavours and dishes, but I did enjoy it and would come again.
