Although we enjoyed it, we felt that the starter of olives, bread sticks, a dip etc was overpriced. Also there was not much flesh on the langoustines served with the risotto my wife ordered, although she enjoyed all the flavours. My calves liver dish was superb however.

Starter Great, My wife had carbonara ok I ordered the mix grill, (£30 expected more) and it appeared the waiter asumed that was the fish (I had the specials menu in hand and was unaware of the fish option) as a result we waited 40 + minutes for the main course. I had chocolate cheesecake which was disappointing.

Thank you for leaving a response Leslie. My apologies for the mix-up with the menus and the order, and the resulting delay. The chocolate cheesecake was a vegan cheesecake so does taste different to a non-vegan version. I am sorry you found it disappointing. Grazie, Alessandro

Buon Apps is in a beautiful setting and a very attractively appointed restaurant. The staff were welcoming and efficient and very helpful in taking on board my dislike of chilli. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed in the food. My husband and I both had chicken in different guises but both were described as "escalopes". However, the chicken was actually in pieces not a thin escalope and my husband's dish was extremely dry and tasteless. My dish was served with the majority of the chicken and sauce on top of the saute potatoes, making them soggy which was a pity, as they were actually very nice. The sauce also missing seasoning. It all lacked a bit of wow factor. We would probably give Buon Apps another go, as maybe we just hit an off day and perhaps the fact that we had to eat at 1.30 pm meant the kitchen was getting a bit back endish!
