We dined on Monday night with friends and had a lovely evening. The food was delicious and the atmosphere pleasant. We chose to eat inside although there is a nice patio too. I had the eggplant tower appetizer which was fabulous. Our group shared the caprisi salad which was large and good. Small Caesar salads came with each meal which... More

The atmosphere was charming in the outdoor porch which overlooked beautiful gardens and a fountain. The service was very good with the quality of food you would only find in Bostons' North End. It was a gourmet dining experience!

Trattoria La Festa is a nice, intimate Italian restaurant in a house-like structure. It's located between the Stowe resort and the town. It was very dark inside the restaurant, which did create a bit of a romantic atmosphere. Service was good. Our waitress was prompt and efficient. The menu had a reasonable selection of dishes. I had grilled chicken, which... More

Took our 2 boys (2 1/2 and 5 years old) for dinner. Excellent customer service - they served the boys first, and even rigged a plastic milk container for both. The food and wine selection was excellent!

While there are many restaurants in the Stowe area to choose from, we decided to revisit the Trattoria where we had dined last year on a similar overnight getaway. Upon entering, we were warmly greeted by Antonio, one of the three owners, and requesting a quiet table, were given one in a cozy windowed nook he described as the "romantic"... More

The decor and the vinyl table cloth did not impress but the food was fantastic! Beef Carpaccio was flavorful and delicious. The Veal Chop was the best I have ever had! It was seasoned just right and cooked to perfection. I ordered medium rare and it was just that, perfect! Service was slow to start but once our waiter got... More

We happened upon this restaurant from a referral by a local plumber when he found out one of our family's names matched the owner's surname of this restaurant. We arrived early in the evening and the restaurant filled up before we left, both inside and outside. The waitstaff was magnificent. They were friendly and funny, attended to us when we... More

We saw this restaurant as we were looking for out hotel. We asked the hotel about it and the concierge recommended it highly. The service and food was really good at this restaurant. Highly recommend it if you like Italian food. They have about five specials on top of the regular menu.

On a weekend getaway with my wife we ate at this restaurant and it was outstanding. The food was made out of great fresh ingredients and service was fast and friendly. The small intimate dining room was well appointed and made you feel very much at home. We travel often and this restaurant is great for a couples night out... More
