Food great, staff great, hidden gem. If you love authentic Italian cuisine, come here. Me and my wife came for an anniversary and they looked after us all night.

“Great Italian”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The venue is attractive, the staff attentive, the food and wine certainly good and authentic. But the place is terrible noisy, so no use if you want to talk to your guests while whispering sweet nothings will end up with lots of "can you repeat that". All they need to do is to add some some soft surfaces (like carpets on the walls) and the place would be heaven.

“Great, authentic Italian”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We have lived near this restaurant for 10 years and visited for the first time on a Friday night in April 2014!
The setting is idyllic, in a converted old mill beside the river Wharfe, although a little bizarre to find a restaurant in this location as you would never guess it was there! It is a basically a small industrial estate with several other businesses in the same location.
There is ample parking round the back, through a small gateway off a very crowded back road.
The mill itself has been converted to a very high standard with small staircases leading to several levels. The stonework walls of the mill have been retained and decorated with pictures and fairy lights.
The staff were attentive but not over-bearing. The menu is smaller than some Italian restaurants but attention to detail is excellent. The food itself was very good, although some of it is pricey. The evening set menu is better value but may not be to everyone's taste as the starters did not include Mozzarella in carozza or Minestrone soup which is a usual staple of Italians, instead focussing on fish and garlic laced foods.
A basic margherita pizza is £8.50 which gives a fair idea on prices for other meals.
The pizza and two lots of the set menu (3 courses) plus 2 wines and a beer cost just over £60, which is a lot of money, but for an occasional treat and the general atmosphere of such a beautiful setting the price could beat other establishments hands down.
Worth a visit, but booking is essential as it is a small restaurant.

“Buon Apps delivers the goods again”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We have visited Buon Apps on numerous occasions to celebrate birthdays etc. This time was Saturday 12th April when we visited to celebrate a family friend's birthday.

As always the food was amazing I had for starters the Swordfish Ravioli which made me want for more, then the Sea Bass with squid ink tagliatelli which again was cooked to perfection and finally the zablione and ammaretti cheesecake was the expensive end to a brilliant meal.

I would recommend booking well in advance if you want eat on your chosen day as places soon fill up.
