The Boot Pizzeria in Huntsville, Alabama
I was first introduced to “The Boot” when I met the owner Elisa at the kick off for the Huntsville Restaurant Week in 2014. She brought a platter of these amazing little treats that reminded me of a beignet, filled with Nutella. I was in heaven. I have since eaten at The Boot several time- with friends, with a homeschool teen group and a bloggle (gaggle of bloggers). I have to say, my favorite dish is their pizza – it is after all a pizzeria.
Every time I have been there, Elisa made the rounds visiting every table. She would ask the patrons how everything was – in her heavily Italian accented voice – and often offer some “off menu” desserts that she had created on a whim. With her accent and the atmosphere in the restaurant, you may think you’ve been transported from Alabama to Italy.
Calamari, Smoked Duck Breast Pizza, Rigatoni Al Forno and the heavenly Nutella pastries.
