“Mmmmmmm and excellent server!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We were recommended to The boot by a resident friend. She said she hadn't been for a bit - she moved away - but we all loved it. Great menu and even though the place was full the one wait staff did an awesome job. When it looked like we were a little quiet she would swing by, smile and joke and keep us distracted. The kitchen apparently was short staffed but we hardly noticed. The food came out and there was complete silence until the plates and bowls were empty. Great selection and all fresh ingredients. Loved it! Portions were perfect as well - on our girls weekends we usually have big lunches and then cook in for dinner. This day we only had to snack for dinner!!!

“Unexpected quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We ordered pizza to go, it was probably one of the best we've had in a long time and the staff was friendly.

“Pasta Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic Italian food in a small town setting.

I especially enjoyed the penne with home made Italian sausage. You definitely won't go away hungry.

PS is there any better smell in the world than garlic simmering in olive oil?

“GOOD WHOLESOME ITALIAN FOOD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

We arrived late (for Canadian eating) and were both tired and hungry after a day traveling. A warm, hospitable welcome was offered to us all....a lovely bottle of red wine quickly followed and then we ate from their Special's Board. All of us opted for the Baked Beef Ravioli in a rose sauce. OK - it took 20' to arrive but it was oven baked in Le Cruset individual dishes and was exactly right. Just what we needed. Would recommend it and go again - $90 (including tips and taxes) for two. Our one comment would be: The Old Boot had been recommended...we were tired visitors...and everywhere looked closed. In fact, it wasn't - it just looked sleepy because Sechelt looked as if it was heavily into power-saving - ok if you're locals and know where you're going but.....we had to walk down the street peering in windows! Weird.

“Better than most other places on the Sunshine Coast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

The Sunshine Coast has expensive restaurants offering average food at best. But this one is above the others; generous portions and good pasta dishes. The pizza is bland and other dishes are also bland, but the pasta dishes are the best you can find on the Sunshine Coast by far, and probably better than some Vancouver restaurants.
