We reserved in January for our wedding anniversary and the owner took our reservation by phone for the dinner the day after. However when we arrived at the restaurant the day after, it was closed. We tried to book at other restaurants which were all full so we ate at a pizzeria for our wedding anniversary! Let's say it was... More

Dear anectine I am sorry for not being open but I just don't understand your view. We had an emergency ice/ rain storm, news recommended everybody to stay off roads and decided to close. We called all our reservations one by one and informed them of the closing for the night. We called your number also and it just rang... More

Although I have been in the area for a long time, this was my first opportunity to try Trattoria La Festa. They had a meat lasagna as a special so I decided to give it a try. Fearing the usual giant (two-meal's worth) slab of ordinary lasagna, I was instead rewarded with a normal size, exquisitely prepared Italian speciality. It... More

We found this place as many places were closed for vacation. No expectations but the food and service were good.

The first time I came here was in 1990. When I lived in Stowe, this was my favorite restaurant. Now, living a little further away, I only make it back about once a year. The past few times we've visited, I've noticed how hit and miss this place has become. This last visit was just plain disappointing. My Limone sauce... More

Great food and great service. We always stop here when we're in Stowe during stick season so it's become an annual tradition for us - and it's always the same - great. The atmosphere is very nice - well-decorated and nicely lit, but like someone said, "You can't eat atmosphere" and I agree. Basic Italian food is all about simple... More

Second time in Stowe, and choice of four Italian restaurants. This place was recommended by our front desk at Top Notch. All I can say is that it is very expensive for the bland food that they call rustic. Service was slow and very un-engaging. The best part of the meal was the chianti classico that we ordered. I would... More

This looked closed from the Mountain Road, but we pulled in and lights all in the back. Cute little cozy place with homemade pasta, sweet little bar that seat about 10 and cozy dinning area. Nice caesar salad comes with most entrees. We were here in fall , but I could see if being even better in the winter months.

The atmosphere of this restaurant is fun and relaxing at the same time. Despite the number of people, we could have a good conversation. We got the duck and the lamb. Both terrific! The wine is good too! Highly recommend.

We just were treated to a most wonderful meal at Trattoria La Festa. The owner greeted us warmly as we entered and then promptly sent out some fresh bruschetta for us to enjoy. Then our great waiter, Israel, took it from there. We left feeling well fed and well cared for.
