We tried the place on second evening in Stowe....The ambiance is nice and familial, romantic lights, and really great service by the staff. Food is good, the rizoto was even really good, but all together it was correct. A little pricy but nice enough dinner

Italian restaurants are iffy - there are many bad ones, and Trattoria La Festa is one where disappointment rules. We have spent lots of time in Italy staying with family in Verona, and have traveled the length of the country multiple times. We know real Italian food. Trattoria La Festa is not the real thing. The decor is a bizarre... More

We selected Trattoria La Festa based on Trip Advisor ratings and the food was even better then the best reviews indicated. Both the Veal and Chicken Parmeggiani were tender and delicious. The tomato sauce, seemingly simple, was very tasty and spiced just right. The green starter salad was also excellent. And the portions were huge leaving no room to order... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere! I first came here last October. First of all I have celiac disease, so careful gluten free is a must. To complicate matters, I had a shattered jaw (both of them actually) and couldn't chew. Antonio made me feel like a princess. He made me special, VERY soft gf pasta and a... More

We quality as regulars, and for good reason. Trattoria La Festa is, beyond any doubt, our favorite restaurant! Tony & Giancarlo, brothers and owners, along with Chef Patty, have been offering authentic Italian specialties for many years. Their food is consistently excellent, and we love the atmosphere (yes, they have red& white checked tableclothes, Dean Martin, the whole bit .... More

Not your typical Italian restaurant. The Trattoria La Festa prepares exceptional fresh dishes in a home styles atmosphere. I have eaten here twice and both times were great.

This restaurant is one of my best experiences in Vermont! We made reservations and sat on the lovely porch! Our waiter was wonderful and helped us with both food and wine selections. I watched him cut herbs from the garden to flavor the great food from the authentic kitchen. My scallops and shrimp with my Super Tuscan was fabulous as... More

Who knew? Cold calamari salad done the way I remember my Aunt made for our summer BBQ. Fresh bread with homemade garlic butter. Caesar salad that comes with dinner & does not cost extra. Homemade ravioli w/ fresh made vodka sauce. Risotto with mushrooms creamy & perfect. Sangria. We loved the food. Service was just as great. We were seated... More

Have not been here for a couple of years but always try it when in Stowe. Not your typical Italian food. Really excellent and different. Good atmosphere, excellent wait staff. All four of us had different meals and all were more than satisfied with the quality. Not to be missed!

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
