Great and welcoming atmosphere, we were in a rush to catch the last train back to Leiden and they were fantastic at advising us what would be quick to order and it was. They were great and can't recommend it highly enough.

“Good foo don't he outskirts of the city centre”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We were staying on Hazenstraat and had walked past the restaurant in the daytime when they were closed and looked at the menu which looks like they did a good selections of Italian food. We decided to visit that nigh and arrived around 8:00pm and we seated immediately, there were quite a few other diners so it seems quite popular. We chose to have pizza each which were about 12inch thin and crispy with plenty of topping. Whilst eating we noticed that they had a cat which was walking around the tables and sat on one of there chairs. A customer came in and they had to move the cat to sit down. The cat made the restaurant feel homely and this was not a problem for us. Again the bill was reasonable and the pizza filled us up. Would defiantly visit again and is easily acceded via tram 17 from Magna Plaza to Elandsgracht. Walk down Elandsgracht past Burgermeester and take the first left and La Festa can be found a short way along on the left.

“Excellent Green Pepper steak with nice atmosphere.”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

My Partner and I enjoyed a lovely meal at this delightful Italian Restaurant. The red wine was well priced and went so well with the steak and the veal. The meal came with a mix of fresh vegetables that had been nicely cooked to enhance the meat dish. Also served with crispy chips. We enjoyed the great service and friendly atmosphere. A really nice place to spend a Friday night with your friends or family!

“Great, simple Italian food”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We were there on a busy summer Saturday evening. Had only pizzas and a bottle of a good Barbera d'Abo wine. Pizzas were great and although I normally cannot finish the whole portion, I enjoyed this one so much that I polished the whole thing. Restaurant has a very pleasand and modern setting and the staff are friendly. It was so busy that the establishment owner was markedly stressed trying to cope with the demand. One comment: a credit card machine did not work, so we had to pay cash, which we luckilly had. All in all, a pleasant outing.
