We were staying in Stowe and hadn't bothered to make a reservation for dinner in town. The hotel recommended we try the Foxfire Inn about 2 miles up the road and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality, choice and service. I had one of their signature chicken dishes which was excellent. Service was pleasant, not rushed. This was by far, the best meal of our 8 day fall foliage road trip.

I came here with family and didnt mind the food at all but almost couldn't stand how cold it was. My brother and sister in law changed into sweatpants and hoodies and it was July! I'd go back again but prepare for the cold!

This is our second visit, the first since Foxfire did their renovations in April. Gone is the "whiff of mildew." I think the food is a tad better than last time--which is to say, the food that we ordered was terrific! The garlic and olive oil dressing on their bread sticks beckoned us to seconds, and our server anticipated as such--she offered to bring us more! The flavor and texture of their tomato sauce was just right--not too acidic or spicy. The lasagna was moist and not overcooked. The seafood linguine had a delicate seafood taste to the sauce, and was filled with clams, in addition to shrimp, mussels, and scallops. Our daughter is a "pasta" expert, and gave hers kudos. Our daughter was the only one to have room for dessert. The mousse came as a formed dessert rather than in a glass. And it was Good! Very delicate and rich flavor. The server was attentive and friendly, and not intrusive--our definition of a great server! After we arrived home the manager called to say we had accidentally left an insurance card, and he volunteered to mail it to us! Now that's service--and he was so pleasant about it.
Do you like an unassuming and quietly pleasant atmosphere? An Italian restaurant that really knows how to cook Italian food? Excellent service?
This is the place! Mange!

I had a wonderful meal here while on a business trip. I was alone, but the staff was so warm and friendly that I had a wonderful time. The restaurant itself is very warm and cozy. I had the most delicious chicken stuffed with goat cheese and figs and a nice brown sauce over it. It was pure heaven. I have searched other places for a dish similar, but have never found one that compares. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a business, family or intimate dinner.

What a pleasant surprise as this was our first visit to Stowe! Intimate setting, attentive service and outstanding food. The PIE mussels are a must; the cream sherry sauce could be a meal in itself! My wife had the chicken rapieano, and I had the shrimp fritti, both outstanding! Drinks and dessert for both of us, and all for under 100 dollars!
