This restaurant is good for the soul. The owners and staff are so attentive and the food is delicious. Patty's desserts are reminders of home baked delights. Giancarlo's wine picks are excellent and glasses are filled to the rim! Tony is a warm and engaging personality and the master of many original Italian family recipes . It is always a... More

I live in Stowe and know the family from Rome that founded this restaurant. Eating at the bar is our first choice for easing into the weekend on Friday. Try Tony's homemade lasagna or his eggplant towers or his special soups. All the classic Italian dishes are offered, but we usually choose from the fish or pasta specials. Patty's desserts... More

While service and ambience were good (although you were crowded to the next table) the food was of poor quality. We ordered the eggplant tower as an appetizer. 2 overdone eggplant slices with a hint of mozzarella and tomato. $12. no taste none. The sauce was watered down tomato sauce. I am Italian and have traveled many times to Italy.... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Trattoria La Festa on Sunday evening. We were a very large party of 17 people and Tony and his staff could not have been more accommodating. We sat in a cozy private room which was set up perfectly for our group of 10 adults and 7 children. The week before we arrived in Stowe,... More

Chef Tony treated us like royalty for a family event! The food is excellent- not like so many resort area restaurants that don't excel. Traditional Italian menu with delicious meatballs, eggplant parmigiana and so many other wonderful choices. If you are in Stowe, you should try this!

While skiing at Stowe for a few days over the Christmas/New Years Holiday, after skiing we ate at Trattoria La Festa based on recommendation from my brother-in-law.

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
