The garlic knots n bread basket best part of the meal. Pasta came out soggy n just disappointing. Waited 15 minutes before someone even came over to us. Plenty of people running around but not even water.
Been before and was ok but now more disappointing sadly🙁

The service was a little spotty. Coffee didn't come the same time as dessert. Bread didn't come until dinner was almost over. But the food was really good.

We had an amazing dinner last night. I was meeting a friend that I hadn’t seen in 5 years, and both of us were in the mood for Italian. The food was delicious. We started with the bruschetta and then I had the steak over pappardelle. Our waitstaff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Dessert was the best. I ordered the cannoli. Only drawback was that it was a chilly night.

Met friends at From the Boot for dinner - we were seated next to the bathroom. Food was ok, but the service was sub-par. We asked for bread 3 times before we received it and that was after we already ate our appetizers. Again asked for water refills and were left thirsty. Restaurant was busy, so maybe they were just understaffed that evening?

When we arrived at the restaurant we were graciously greeted by the hostess. She welcomed us and led us to our table. It was a comfortable booth that seated the three people in our party with room to spare.

Our server quickly arrived with glasses of water, asking if we wanted any other drinks. He gave us a few minutes to decide what we wanted to order. He brought us freshly baked garlic knots that were completely irresistible.

I ordered the crab stuffed mushrooms which were served served in a delicious sherry cream sauce... perfect for soaking up the bread.

My dining partner s ordered a pasta with braised pork meatballs and a Margherita Angel Hair pasta served in a tomato, fresh basil, white wine and garlic sauce. We each ordered a side of sautéed spinach and garlic.
All of the food tasted fresh and nicely seasoned.

The service was superior and the food was scrumptious. We will definitely be visiting this location again!

Finally decided to try this restaurant with my family. We had made a reservation so we were seated right away. Our server was very nice and attentive, even offering to remake a pizza for our young son. The food was ok; I had a panini which was over flowing with red onions throwing the whole favor profile off. My husband's meatball parm was ok. Dense meatballs without enough seasoning and tons of cheese, and not in a good way. Same with my son's pizza which had too much cheese on it. Their bread is good and so were the drinks. Tiramisu was ok. Also, it's an all wood interior so it's loud inside.

I had chicken piccata, which was excellent. My husband had the filet and he said it was very good. The bruschetta is excellent.

We loved our table in the window and friendly server. Disappointed to see they charged $1.50 for a stuffed olive (even when not included on additional cocktail) and $.50 extra for ice in a drink. Crazy!!

Everything was great. We haven't been out in awhile. I've been craving filet mignon but the steak houses were all booked. Well I'm glad they were because my filet and entire meal was so delicious at The Boot! My husband loved his meal too. Overall great night out!

The waitress messed up the order about three times. I asked for a lemonade and she brought out a water with lemon. My friend and I both ordered an entree and she only put in one order and just brought out two plates when we said multiple times we wanted an order for each of ourselves. And she didn’t split the check when we asked ahead of time. Overall, I love the food but the waitress kept talking to other people and only check on us twice after she kept getting things wrong. Will only go the Blue Bell Location from now on.

Bread was served without oil or butter, so we requested one or the other, but never got it. The food was good but could have used more flavor/spice (rotini with broccoli rabe and sausage).
