When La Festa opened in May 2014, it had a tough act to follow. Moving into a building left vacant by the legendary Cagney's after more than 30 years in business, La Festa has quickly established its own identity as an authentic Italian restaurant in the ultra-competitive Restaurant Row district. Owner Tevos Zatikyan and Italian chefs Alberto Andolfo and Matteo Cazzin deliver a unique fine-dining experience.
One might not expect to find an authentic Italian restaurant sandwiched between a dollar store and a beachwear chain, but Toscana Italian Bistro pulls it off with flair. Step inside from the strip-mall exterior and you find yourself inside an upscale environment surrounded by the aromas wafting from the open kitchen, where Milan native Chef Veney serves up dishes from his homeland to your table.
