Dined there with a group of artists, actors and their children snd spouses. This group is here every year in Stowe, and commonly dine at well-known and popular restaurants. At my repeated recommendation, they decided to try Trattoria La Festa. They are now totally smitten with the atmosphere, service and decor. As usual, the food was perfectly prepared and served....

We visit the Trattoria every year as a family. This year we had a larger party and we're seated in the function room. It's nice in a way because it is quieter but does not have the atmosphere the restaurant offers so if you make a reservation for a large party, depending on your preference, you may want to find...

Service was wonderful nice family restaurant tasty food but it was all just ok. Cesar salad was fresh and very good and came with the meal. My wife loved the manicotti. My chicken parm lacked flavor and the chicken looked like it was a pre purchase restaurant supply kind of chicken. My daughters dish was good but spicy

First time back in 15+ years... and Trattoria hasn't changed a bit (which is good!!) They have a wide variety of Italian dishes that are home made and very tasty - but also not overly pricey. Calamari and Mozarella specials as starters; Lasagna and gluten free Penne mains with some red wine... great meal. The GF pasta was hard to... More

A little off the beaten path and easy to miss, but an absolute gem! We've never had anything but great food here and the service is both stellar and unobtrusive. When my wife and I had trouble reading the menu, a pair of reading glasses magically appeared as the server passed by. They have a great selection of wine which... More

I have eaten here twice before and the food was good as was the service. However when I dined there on Saturday evening with a total of seven lady friends and one charming three year old I was extremely disappointed in the service! It took about 15 minutes for the waiter to take our drink order then when the wine... More

This is a lovely Italian restaurant with options for everyone, including gluten-free pasta. Our server was so nice and the food arrived promptly. It's not fine dining but more like what your grandma would make for you - fresh ingredients and lots of love - all at a reasonable price.

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.
