Being first generation Italian Canadian, I am passionate about Italian cuisine. Never would I have imagined that I would have an authentic Italian Trattoria right here in my home town of Cochrane, Alberta. THE BOOT is Cochrane's newest restaurant and I'm so excited that I have to rave about it!
THE BOOT is a new Italian Trattoria that is 100% authentic Italian located on 1st right across the street from Holy Spirit School. I'm Italian, so I know real Italian food when I see and taste it. And THE BOOT produces the best! The new restaurant has only been open for a few days, but it won't be long before you'll have to line up to dine there. The chefs are from Milano Italy and the Roman owner has an extensive background in Italian cuisine.
The menu is full of authentic Italian recipes. The pizza dough is from an ancient Roman recipe combing rice, soy, and wheat flour that is cured for 10 days before ready to make into a pizza and eat. I ordered the Pizza Capricciosa and my husband ordered his with pepperoni. The crust is thin with an incredibly chewy interior. We topped off our lunch with espresso and an incredibly delicious tiramisu.
This is my new favourite restaurant and I plan on attending often. Finally! Cochrane has an outstanding Trattoria that will rival those in the homeland! Love the friendly staff, meticulous preparation, and pride the staff has in everything they serve. Go there! Go there now! It's my new favourite!
