Whilst we have enjoyed the food at Buon Apps previously we have never been for Sunday lunch before. It was superb. The beef melted in the mouth, scrumptious roasties and proper gravy. Wonderful

I understand that the council (I think it's the council) are going to be clearing part of the island in the middle of the river. This will make the atmosphere even better as then hopefully rubbish won't collect in this area.

Thank you for leaving a review Karen. These are important for an independently run business like Buon Apps. If you’ve not already done so would you please consider leaving a review on Trip Advisor too? I note your comments about the island in the middle of the river. Our understanding is that the council are to remove the island as part of the flood defence works so water flows more freely. In turn this also means items can not then be caught up on the island. We're hopeful this will make an already beautiful view even lovelier. I’m pleased to read that you enjoyed your visit and hope we’ll see you again soon. Grazie, Alessandro.

We had Christmas Day dinner at 4pm Restaurant very busy as expected Arrangements for glass of fizz and nibbles to start the meal and celebrations were a bit muddled We did finally manage a drink at the bar upstairs but things a bit chaotic. The bar staff were very stressed and had little time to interact with customers Would have been good idea to have drink and nibbles downstairs and then a member of staff to show us to our table. Would have been a nice touch Cannot fault the meal and service when we were finally seated at our table As I said was very busy so could understand but the cost for the meal was expensive and as it was a special occasion think it should have been handled a bit more on a personal level Is one of our favourite restaurants so we will definitely be back Thank you to Alessandro and all the staff

Not much in the way of vegetarian options. Actually the new Buon Apps is worse than the old for this, as there is one vegan pasta option, and only one (vegan) pizza. Staff are very friendly, but service does suffer when you are busy. The pizza was cold. We would come much more often, and for lunch too, if there were some veggie options.

My wife and I met a friend here for a relaxed festive lunch and spent a very pleasant and happy four hours or so havi g yet another wonderful dining experience. Alessandro and all of his staff at BA are fabulous friendly people and they never ever disappoint us, serving up magnificent food and wine from their superb authentic menus to enjoy at your leisure. BA is simply the best Italian restaurant in the area which is why we have been regular visitors for a number of years now and hope to carry on dining there for many years to come! Grazie mille to Alessandro and all of the hard working staff who make BA the consistently superior dining experience that it is. Happy New Year to all of you!! Kindest regards Richard, Lorraine and Keith.

We love this new BA, however on Friday 21st Dec, it was a waiting game, for our table, for the food; table booked for 7.15, not seated until 7.45, didn’t get our mains until after 9.30. Full marks to the waiting staff who kept calm and apologised but it was a disappointing evening !

Three Grandmas went out for lunch to celebrate a 70th Birthday. The view of the River Wharfe was stunning, the food was delicious. The desert course was extra special because your staff put a lighted candle in one of them and then sang Happy Birthday! Thank you. Next time I shall bring my Grandchildren (aged 9 & 6).
