We have been visiting "The Boot" for many many years. I can tell you that we have never had a bad meal. The service and ownership is top shelf as well.

We found this gem when we moved to the area in 2008, and we still love it 9 years later! Cute and cozy BYO with wonderful homemade Italian cuisine!!!

It happens yet again. No parm cheese on my meatball parm sandwich despite the $10 price. Ridiculous. This place is always sloppy. Wouldn't recommend. Go to illianos which is close by, cheaper and nicer folks too.

The bread and pizza are excellent. Try (if you can) because the food is very good as well. The kids devoured their pizza. The lobster pomodoro was a little dry but the homemade pasta and sauce were very good. Your Italian mother would like it. Go early because the Boot is very busy.

Wonderful Food. Great Service. This is our favorite restaurant any time of the year. The fact that it is Bring Your Own makes it even better. This should be on a can't miss list.

Everything is good from the pizza to the pasta! Generous portions at family prices plus it is a BYOB. Some like the homemade garlic and cheese buns. I wish they would serve crusty Italian bread. Nevetheless a great spot for lunch or dinner.

We love this place, and have been coming for years. The expansion is terrific (and was needed). Now there is an entry area protected from the cold wind in winter and with plenty of seating. The wait time was shorter, too, since they have more tables now. The food is always delicious. We particularly enjoy the mussels, calamari, eggplant rollantini,... More

A friend of mine and I dined here Saturday night. We had all night so waiting for table was no issue. Plus BYOB allowed us to imbibe as we waited. Once seated, really good bread. Apps good. Linguine with clams also good. When you have to choose a restaurant this one won't disappoint.

Reasonably priced and diverse menu. Just have a problem with their bread. Soft rolls with garlic top. Would be much better it were crusty rustic Italian.
