Pizza very good .but at busy times pizza has been undercooked. Beer selection of beer on Tap . Especially craft beer could be improved. 90 percent of time everything is great . Lines to cashier can be confusing. Staff friendly.

We eat here regularly. It's one of the best pizza restaurants on NH's seacoast. You also have to try the garlic knots. Mmm-mmm!

Everyone raves about La Festa. I have Celiac, so I am only look and smell their many types of pies. The smell is to die for. If you are GF they will make any kind of pizza pie on a pre-made crust. I'm pretty sure they use Udi's as most places do, because it is pretty much like eating cardboard.... More

They really have this down to a science. Though they are always busy its easy in and easy out. Great selection of slices or whole pies. very fresh ingredients, never been disappointed.

I've become a regular customer of La Festa over the last three years I've lived in Dover. My favorite is the barbecued chicken, with lots of bacon for flavor. They have a great selection of craft beers on tap - and on an average night there are no less than 27 people working behind the counter - so the service... More

We arrived on a Thursday around 11:30 am. We had no trouble finding a parking spot out behind the restaurant in their parking lot and it was free parking. We had never been there so it was kind of confusing at first about what to do. We were not sure if it was a sit down place where the order... More

This pizza house takes its work seriously and they have a very well-organized ordering process in order to accommodate the large crowds they get. The NY style pizza we got was excellent with a chewy crust and fresh-tasting ingredients.

This place is soooo good! It's fast, fresh, and they have an incredible variety! The beer is a little pricey, but the glasses are huge. Great spot for a date (cozy atmosphere) or a group outing. I will keep coming back here as long as I live in the area!

I cant think of anything not to like about Lafesta. The crust is wonderfully crispy and chewy, the sauce is delicious and there is a exceptional variety of toppings. The slices that are offered are always creative and tasty. It is the best pizza in the area.

We've been here many times. We always go when we're in the mood for pizza and beer. You can watch them make the pizzas or calzones while sipping your beer. They play music that appeals to all generations. You have to order at the counter but they bring the food to your table after it is ready. Pizzas and calzones... More
