As usual the food was fantastic. However, when I ordered a cappuccino, it was very weak and disappointing. I asked the waitress for a replacement, which duly came but was not much stronger than the first. It is slightly disappointing that a genuine Italian restaurant cannot get the coffee right. Great Coffee is one of the things Italy is renowned for. Hopefully it will be better next time. Ciao. Charlie Robinson

I believe that the food is overpriced, the service was ok but I felt that the waiter was always watching over us. The food was very salty in my opinion.

Poor service again unfortunately, food is amazing but doesn’t seem to be enough staff for customers and customers being left to wait for long periods of time to order and wait for courses, disappointing

Another series of wonderful visits to Buon Apos, a magical early evening meal for my birthday and family from down south tasted your lunchtime menu and were so jealous of us having you on our doorstep. One family member around Easter found your tomato and olive sauce a little rich for him, so now I always tell people to ask your brilliant team to advise on flavouring if they don't know about the big flavours of Rome. For me the full flavours are perfect and there are plenty to choose from. Many thanks. Helen Toft

Food quite expensive and I thought the price for a small bottle of Peroni was a bit excessive.

Service a little slow and it we weren't acknowledged immediately when we walked in. I think that the menu is a little pricey and my friend was disappointed with her salad, which she said was a little bland, but the location by the river is superb.
