The food was tasty and the service was exceptional. There didn't seem to be great variety, but plenty of options. There didn't seem to be a lot of deviation from the typical Italian menu, but everything tasted fine. A notable traditional Italian restaurant.

We were very excited to try this restuarant. When we went, the atmosphere felt a little shady. We sat, and I felt as if the wait staff was tryin g to be more professional than appropriate from the setting. I ordered a soda, which was over a dollar for a very tiny glass, and the fish special. The fish was wonderful, but it was accompanied by frozen veggies. That was a complete turn off for me, because fresh vegetables are the most important part, and determines for me how fresh their ingredients are. Unfortunately I will not return, but if you do go, maybe recommend another starch instead of vegetable?

My husband and I ate at the Trattoria La Festa on Valentines Day and were not disappointed. Our meal was so delicious and there was an extensive wine list. We loved the atmosphere and the help was so friendly. We were shocked at the bill - VERY reasonable to say the least. We both wished we could take this restaurant home with us (perfect place to go to with friends). Thanks Trattoria La Festa!

We were well aware of this restaurant and its long history in the area but had never tried it. Finally we attended this restaurant which is located in a house next to the well known TopNotch Resort.
We were seated by one of the owners and served promptly. We chose from the Weekly Specials. The meals we chose were Manicotti which was a large portion and very nicely prepared and obviously made to order. The other meal was Veal Parmigagna and it was a very generous portion of fine veal cutlet pan fried and covered with a nice sauce and cheese.
Both meals came with fresh bread and garlic butter and a nice salad. Our waiter was somewhat hesitant and seemed unsure of himself at times.
The flavor and quality of the food certainly rated a good passing grade and we would probably consider going again on another trip to this area.
