We had a lovely afternoon. Everything was perfect and especially nice to be able to sit outside to have our coffees. Would recommend the seafood starter for two to share.

I really highly recommend Buon Apps. After a relaxed drink in the lovely outside ‘lounge’, warm and welcoming service and lovely food, we really felt that just for a brief time we’d been transported to Italy (the weather in the evening helped a little!). Such an huge asset to Otley and looking forward to our next visit!

This was our first visit to Buon Apps and certainly will not be the last. From the moment we walked into the ‘garden’ we felt truly welcome by all members of staff. Our children were doted upon and looked after. The food was sublime, we eat out often but few restaurants could beat the food here. We have already recommended the restaurant to friends and will certainly return soon. If I was being picky, it might be nice to have a lunchtime special or a fixed price menu.

Excellent night with the set regional Lazio menu. Great service and excellent atmosphere. Great spot even though the sun was a little fierce through the windows overlooking the weir.

The starter and mains dishes I have had are good, but I would strongly recommend expanding on the steak selection. Introducing a Fiorentina steak would be a big hit. The dessert menu is a bit basic; crème brûlée was disappointing in size and flavour, cheeescake was too stodgy. There's too much dependence on icecream as a side dish. I suggest introducing some refinement to the dessert menu. The wine menu requires work. The selection of mid-price reds (£20 - £40), excludes some excellent Italian grapes, e.g. Barolo and Barbaresco. Having tried a couple of bottles of mid price reds, they've been harsh on the palette. The £65 red Barolo was excellent, but not for everyone's price point. Value for money, location and service are great. I feel that the menu has been "dumbed down" somewhat for the local audience and this is doing the restaurant a disservice. Staying true to Italian cuisine and educating the locals in the excellence of Italian food and wine, would turn a very good restaurant into a fantastic one.

While the old restaurant was always very nice, The new restaurant was a great move, much bigger and still got all the same qualities.

Fabulous atmosphere, surroundings, staff, view and of course food, albeit a bit pricy. Had such a good evening with friends - Rebooked before we left!

We had to wait 40 minutes to be seated at our table after our booked time. We were a family of five and my daughter aged 10 had finished Football and was really hungry. The bar area was full of people in a similar situation so there was no where to sit. It wasn’t the relaxed start to my birthday evening out I’d planned. Came across as quite disorganised . The food and service were great after that but .....
