This restaurant is a surprising little gem, considering its not the most appealing looking place, and i probably wouldn't go there for a special occasion, the quality of the food is pretty darn impressive.
They make really nice pizza's, Chicken and Pasta dishes. They also have chef specials written up on the wall every now and again, and i haven't had a experience at all at La Festiva.
If you are looking for a place to go for a quality italian bistro style meal, at a decent price, this is the place.
Personally, i think its a much better option than La Porchetta and the Sophia's..
