Our family had dinner here on our first evening in Stowe over Spring Break. Nothing to complain about. Solid, if unexceptional, food. It is about halfway between the Stowe Mountain Lodge (our hotel) and Downtown Stowe so it was convenient for us.

The food was good. My husband & I shared a veal marsala and butternut squash ravioil both of which were delicous. Our son enjoyed his alfredo. Our daughter didn't love her gnocchi wioth meat sauce. They give you casear salads to satrt which were very gralicky & delcious. For dessert we tried the limoncello (very bland & disappointing) , the... More

We come to Stowe for our anniversary every year and always visit this restaurant. We were greeted warmly and our server was very engaging. The chicken parm was dynamite and a good size portion. Their food has yet to disappoint! Looking forward to visiting again next year!

Was in Stowe for 25th anniversary, heard so much about this place we just had to go. We were greeted very warmly by the owner and made to feel so welcomed by our waiter who was very knowledgeable about the menu. I ordered the chicken Parmesan and my husband the eggplant tower. I can honestly say it was the best... More

We enjoyed our dining experience and would go back again. The food was fresh and not covered up with garlic. Our waiter was attentive and the owner was friendly. Wine selection was good and kitchen cook time was normal. We sat inside and it was not overbearingly loud. We would have preferred outside, but it was raining.

Really enjoyed our dinner here. The food and choices are as is the service. I ordered an (what I was told afterwards) "experimental" eggplant preparation. It was not only experimental, but exceptionally unique and delicious. I never dreamed eggplant could be so tasty. And, I appreciate a chef who will improvise. Great server, wine, atmosphere and food.

We took the family (including the 2 year old) to La Festa on a hot afternoon, just before they got busy with the evening meal. While we weren't able to get a table on the airy porch, we did inside. The staff were great with the toddler and service was prompt, attentive and friendly. The menu was great, with lots... More

This is a rustic long time Stowe Italian restaurant. It is mainly a "red sauce" restaurant but definitely upscale from the usual pizza restaurants flocking the area. Solid 3-3.5 star fare. I would have rated it a bit higher if there were a bit more on the menu especially in the seafood arena. Desserts are 5 star---limoncello gelato pie is... More
