We ate here 7/30/15 and it was wonderful. By far everyones favorite for the week. Great food, great service and loved the atmosphere. Various pastas and steak were ordered by 2 adults and 2 teenagers, and it was fantastic. Was not cheap eats, but we found there were more expensive places around with smaller dishes or food not as good.

This may not be the least expensive Italian food you will find, but it is top flight. Personally, I am fond of eggplant parmesian. Tonight's meal was probably the best I have ever had. The greasing was perfect, and the eggplant had the cheese, pesto, and tomato between slices with a fabulous sauce. The carbonara was outstanding with a smoky... More

We went to Trattoria La Festa with my sisters and their husbands while visiting Burlington, VT. This was a wonderful Italian Restaurant. The food was excellent, served at the right temperature and very flavorful. Our waiter was great, came by our table often, didn't mix up any dishes (and there were 6 of us), and made sure we had everything... More

My mother and I ate here during our visit! I would have to say our best meal of the week. The portions were huge and delicious! Our waiter was fabulous! I believe his name was Burke. My only regret was not eating on the porch to enjoy the beautiful view!

We were recommended this restaurant by the woman that we rented our house from for the weekend. It was a great, comforting meal! The appetizers were amazing! The bruschetta was perfect and burratta (my new favorite cheese) was delicious! I had the gnocchi which was really light and cooked well. There was a lot of sauce on the pasta, though.... More

Kind of disappointing when we visited here for dinner, given the high praise in most TA reviews. What some reviewers have called a "cozy" atmosphere, we would just call "dark." The food was nothing special given the prices, and we had a bit of a service issue besides. There are some good points: Three of our party of four had... More

Wonderful Italian food. My husband and I went went with 6 good friends and each of us enjoyed our dinner. I had the veal scaloppine with a light lemon cream sauce and it was perfectly cooked. Other great choices: manicotti as well as the duck.

This is not a "pizza joint", but a somewhat classier restaurant that still retains a casual atmosphere. I enjoyed a nice glass of wine and grilled lamb chops, and attentive (but not pushy) service. There are plenty of tables inside, but I preferred a table on the porch with a relaxing view of the flowers and hillside (early July evening).... More

Dear Danceswith trout I really love the name, we make a wonderful stuffed trout with pancetta and fresh herbs then baked in the oven, that our customers really like. Thank you for the great and generous review. You are giving us feed back that we need to continue to do better and better through our journey (30 years) in Stowe.... More
