My wife grew up in Naples, and the Bronx, so my family and I are very familiar with Italian food. The food here is good. We had an eggplant appetizer that was outstanding. The bruschetta was just ok, not as good as my mother in law used to make. The Caesar salad was very good, and the dressing seemed to... More

After a day of January Nordic skiing, our group of four were seeking just such a place as this. Classic Italian menu with some additional unexpected entrees served in a comfortable, attractive setting. We all had a variety of salads, veal, pasta and seafood dishes. All were very good to excellent. Portions were ample; service was friendly and professional. Will... More

Dear Stowe-Host: When I read your words it brought tears to my eyes. I guess I am a big sentimental Mediterranean type of guy. A Compliment makes us blush and feel good but it also gives us the compass settings we need in the journey of our life. The restaurant journey can be a tough one, day in , day... More

We visited this restaurant again on our recent trip to Stowe. The restaurant had a warm and cozy feeling with original artwork on the walls. We started with a good red house wine that we enjoyed; my husband had the spaghetti with meat sauce and I had the manicotti. Both were excellent and started with a salad. I am 100%... More

Dear Justgo4 Thank you for eating with us. I think you got the whole picture, Grazie. We cannot wait for your return so we can do this again and again. I grew up in Sperlonga Italy right after the war and food was always hard to find. My Mother God bless her soul must have been a magician because she... More

We stopped in hoping to grab dessert around 8pm on New Year's Day. There were lots of empty tables when we walked in. We were given a dessert menu to look over and then when we were ready to be seated the waiter told us they had no room. No apologies, and the waiter was very dismissive and couldn't care... More

Every time we visit Stowe, we make a point of dining at Trattoria La Festa. The food is always terrific and the service is wonderful! An added bonus is the convenient location on the Montain Road, ten minutes from the downtown.
