Cozy atmosphere, tremendous service and wonderful food. We've been in Stowe for a week and went to Trattoria La Festa on our last night. We've had some great meals over the last 7 days but this was the best. I had the manicotti of the day which was stuffed with duck confit and chorizo. Amazing. We'll be back.

Surprised to see any rating less than 5 stars. The staff is incredible, Matthew was such a great server and helped us with stellar recommendations on food and a wine pairing. The carrot and ginger soup is an absolute must; we also enjoyed the lobster ravioli and carbonara (very generous portion). Will be back again.

Food is amazing! Best Italian I've had outside of Hanover Street in Boston. Pescatore had balanced mix of scallops, shrimp, and clams, and multiple levels of flavor; spicy, smooth, fresh. Limoncello martini was excellent. Bresaola app was wonderful - thinly sliced prime rib was tender, and gods complements of peppers, olives, fresh basil, and capers. Also, when we entered, Tony welcomed us at the door, paused to say thank you to some regulars and reminded them to "stay out of trouble" on their way out. Friendly, personal, real people.

The food and atmosphere is always great but the pricing was dramatically higher due to covid. A glass of wine was $20, you can buy a bottle for that price.

Toni is an outstanding host, food is fresh, innovative and service excellent, a stowe favorite


We were looking for some place a bit different than the Stowe restaurants, that we had been to before and came across the reviews for this restaurant on trip Advisor. I made a reservation for the porch and the owner is a charming fellow, the food is excellent and out waiter most helpful in assisting us with our food and wine selections. This would be at the top of my list, next time we go back to Stowe.

This place is fabulous! Tony, the owner is friendly and courteous and always there to make sure your dinner is everything it should be! Our waiter was terrific, the bussing staff was spot on to clear dishes, refill wster, very attentive.We started with mussels for an appetizer which was incredible. There was garlic, bacon, different cheese in a cream sauce. Just the appetizer would have made the night amazing. We ordered the special, lobster ravioli stuffed with lobster and topped with claw and knuckle meat, in a cream sauce which was better than anyone could have ever expected. We also had the shrimp scampi with pennie, red crushed pepper ( not too spicy at all) in a butter, wine, olive oil, cheese, garlic sauce, with 6 jumbo shrimp and a large serving of penne pasta, which we ended up taking about half home.Both dinners came with a ceasar side salad. The sparkling peach Moscato wine has become on of my family's favorites and the draft Switchback beer has become very popular, we always bring some home.If that wasn't enough, we ordered a wonderful desert, not sure of the name, but I would say a chocolate decadence type desert, which had a slice of floorless cake, creamy in texture, along with a chocolate like truffle, with the consistency of a brownie on the outside, but darker chocolate, with a creamy milk chocolate center, a scoop of chocolate ice cream, topped with whipped cream! It was incredible!The restaurant itself is a traditional Italian appearance inside, and beautifully kept flower and spicegarden. It is very clean, there is a small bar, and has a very pleasantatmosphere.We consider ourselves so very fortunate to have found this most wonderful restaurant, which has become our trip to Stowe would be complete without having dinner at the Trattoria La Festa.Gracias for the most wonderful dinner, we will see you next year..Darlene and Russell SimpsonHope, RI


We have passed by this wonderful restaurant many times on our visits to Stowe, but stopped in tonight. The food was really good, matched only by the ambiance which added to a delightful evening. The staff was friendly and service efficient. Couldn't have been happier to find out how nice Trattoria Le Fest was. Will return again.


This was my family’s first time coming and we definitely will be returning. We ordered the burrata, bruschetta, scampi, pescatore, and salmon. The food was delicious!!! You can tell everything was fresh and well cooked. We were all silent and devoured everything. The dessert was fantastic as well. I usually never write reviews of restaurants but i highly encourage anyone visiting Stowe to come and eat here!!!

We always stop here during our vacation. The best Italian food. Very clean and tables are set for distancing during the transition.


We were greeted on the porch by Tony( owner) who led us to a lovely table with paintings displayed by local artists along the walls. Wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The Caesar salad was fabulous! ( my son said he should have ordered seconds). The waitperson made helpful suggestions for pasta types for each dish. They were absolutely delicious!! We ARE coming back !!


We had a wonderful meal at Trattoria La Festa. I called Tuesday to try to get reservations on Wednesday and was thrilled to get a table. We had the bread which was fresh out of the oven with delicious herbed butter. I couldn’t resist. I had the shrimp scampi and the sauce was just right and quite tasty. Husband had Veal Marsala and veal was very tender and sauce was delicious. Overall had a great meal. We sat inside. I would definitely eat here again.

My husband took me here after we got married last year and it has become my favorite place to eat. This is our go to for any special occasion. The owner Tony is amazing and makes you feel so comfortable the second you walk through the door. The staff is all amazing as well. Real classic Italian food and it’s always cooked perfectly.


We have eaten here since they opened in the '80s on our visits to Stowe. Talk to one of the owners, Tony. He will fill any request. Be prepared to enjoy some of the most flavorful Italian food, just like Nana made! Tell him Bubba Tomassetti sent you and Bona Petito

Really friendly service, fresh tomato marinara sauces, outstanding mushroom ravioli, and appropriate portion sizes.
