Had another lovely meal last night at Buon Apps. Even though it was very busy the service, from the friendly and helpful staff, was fabulous. Love this restaurant. Can't wait for our next visit.

First ever visit tonight for our wedding anniversary. Had heard good things and we were not disappointed. We only live 10 minutes away and will be back soon. Fantastic food, friendly and helpful staff and a great menu that made selection far from easy.

This great Italian restaurant is run by a fabulous couple. We have been eating at Buon Apps since it’s opening day in Otley (previous site), the new premises are exquisite and really give a plush atmosphere. The food is simply stunning. Well done.
