This is one of our favorite casual restaurants. It’s always good and our service last night was excellent. Prices are good and so is the food. We will be going back again.

Met two high school friends for dinner.
We sat outside and had a beautiful meal served to us by Macala. She did a wonderful job and helped make our mini reunion perfect.

Service was very slow. Waitress wasn’t interested in giving good service. Wouldn’t have her again. Food was mediocre. Would have helped if she had been more specific when describing the specials. Not a good night all around

This is the first time at this restaurant that we were disappointed by the way fish was cooked.
In my plate, I had Calamari and Octopuses, both were obviously overcooked and tough to eat. My wife had Salmon and she asked to be rear, however it was cooked at low temperature and the center was just barely rear.
We felt that this must have been a new chef, because it never happened before,
I had to return my plate because it was very but very spicy and when it was returned, I specifically asked the waiter to tell the Chef that my fish was overcooked, but it did not work.

well, not as tasty as our last 3 visits. We traveled from Delco to dine here. The first three times the food was fabulous. I would say this time was okay, probably won't travel back, They have gone down hill disappointed

Service was good, my entree was very good. The Mediterranean appetizer lacked flavor. Menu is overpriced
Very convenient that it's next door to the movie theater.

They were able to take my family later in the night and made us fee super comfortable even though we arrived 10 minutes before the kitchen closed! Our waitress was wonderful and the food was deliciously consistent as always. The staff at From the Boot keeps us coming back.

I had to send my filet back because it was overcooked. got another one, no fork, no checkback so after 20 min I got up to ask for a fork. The waitress was not at all attentive. No apology for the overcooked steak, no offer to make it better. Too bad, the food was good once cooked right, but the service left me wondering if I will go back.

A lovely evening to eat outside socially distanced. Our server was pleasant but handed us the check before she asked us about dessert. When my gelato arrived it was more like chocolate soup rather than ice cream. Our Mediterranean appetizer was the best part of the meal. I would recommend From the Boot to eat outside because inside is very noisy.

First time there, food hot and very tasty, good size portions and fresh. Was a bit noisy, high ceiling but there was also live music, a plus. So, noise would be expected but did not take away from the dining. Will go again.

We love "From the Boot." The staff is always friendly and efficient. The food is consistent and very good. The "From the Boot" locations offer the best Italian we have out here in MontCo. The place is vibrant and loud. They always do their best to get us a more quiet corner.

I gotta say for an Italian place they have the absolute best filet you could get. The bartender was very personable and had great conversations. Owner is very active in the restaurant and is there for anything you need. My overall experience I would give it an 11/10.

The food at From the Boot is usually very good, however, I ordered the buccatini with white clam sauce and it was not good. The pasta was undercooked and watery and the clam and sauce had very little flavor. My friend had the flounder francaise and said it was delicious. Our service from Maura was excellent.

The host honored our request to be seated further away from the live music; we wanted to gab and our new table was perfect! Thank you! Food and drinks were excellent! The bread basket with the garlic rolls were amazing and we enjoyed our apps with the bread. We will be back soon!
