Went here tonight for dinner and had a wonderful experience. Our waiter, Berk (?) was very courteous, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. A bread basket was brought almost immediately accompanied with homemade garlic butter. The garlic butter was soooo good that I ended up having 3 pieces of bread, something I don't normally do! I ordered the veal parmesan... More

We decided last minute to dine here before a show. Tony was very gracious allowing us to have a table on the porch without a reservation. The service was great and the food was outstanding. We dine frequently in Boston's North End and this meal was as good, if not better. Tony stopped by to check on our meal, and... More

Our family visits Stowe 2 to 3 times each year and Trattoria la Festa remains a favorite! Although it is usually not on the menu ask your waiter for cheese ravioli - great. Our daughter at the Chicken Putanesca - delicious.

We have only been to Stowe once before and happened to eat here then as well. Food is good quality and service was excellent. A few more affordable wines would have made the experience more enjoyable.
