The outside dining for two is on the front sidewalk in the sun. The traffic was noisy and it was hot. Not very appealing. The food was okay but I wouldn’t order the same entree again. Wish I would have picked indoor dining and a different entree.

As always, the food was yummy and the service top notch. We elected to sit inside, but there is ample seating outside as the street next door is closed off.

Dined early in the evening prior to a movie at Ambler Theater next door. The staff was friendly and efficient, and the food was delicious! What more could you want? We shared the stuffed zucchini appetizer, which we both said we would totally eat for a main course. Also each had a salad entrée. My friend said her salmon was cooked perfectly, and my grilled shrimp was as well. Will definitely be back.

I’ve eaten here over the years & the food always tasted like an Italian grandmother cooked it, but the last two times I’ve eaten there have been very disappointing. It’s not as good as it used to be.

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?
