Since 2003 Alessandro and Sofia Elena have brought an authentic taste of Italy to Otley in the heart of Yorkshire.

Family recipes passed down the generations are lovingly recreated in Buon Apps kitchens using fresh locally-sourced ingredients and produce imported specially from Italy for a true Italian taste. 

Set in an atmospheric building on the banks of the River Wharfe, the style is relaxed and casual, the service friendly and professional. Come enjoy the best in Italian dining including:

  • regional specialties from across Italy

  • rustic pasta and pizzas

  • pinsa romana (perhaps the only place in the UK serving it!)

  • classic Italian fish and meat dishes

  • chargrilled catch of the day

  • delicious Italian desserts

  • authentic Italian beers, wines and soft drinks

  • classic and contemporary cocktails

  • coffee and cake

Our two-story restaurant features a bar, the outdoor ‘Wharfe Garden’ terrace and enjoys stunning views of the river and surrounding area.

Whether you want a romantic meal for two, a get-together with friends, a family celebration, or food and space for a corporate event, Buon Apps is the best place to be. Don't fancy food? Then you're welcome to pop in for drinks in the lounge bar.

We can seat up to 100 diners for lunch, dinner or drinks, with space for another 30 al fresco diners on the outside terrace area, weather permitting.

We would be delighted to see you!
