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. The atmosphere was nice and comfortable, I had the lasagna and simply put, I think it was the best lasagna I ever had; not too heavy, not too light, great blend of pasta,... More

Dear Kyle M Thank you and your family for eating with us instead of the other 100 restaurants in the Store area. We have been cooking for 31 years at this location and still going strong. Sometimes we cannot please everybody but we certainly try. I am the one that makes the lasagna and I am very proud of because... More

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
