Offering traditional Italian cuisine in an intimate Myrtle Beach setting, La Festa Restaurant has made a name for itself as the area’s best local restaurant for dinner. Each dish is lovingly handcrafted by the chefs, made from old Italian recipes that are rich in flavor, seasoning, and history.
Not sure what to order? Here are four must-try pasta dinners, recommended by the restaurant itself:
Maccheroni Alla Norma
This dish begins with freshly-made macaroni pasta, but the “traditional” approach stops there! The macaroni is tossed together with fried eggplant, an eggplant cream, fresh tomatoes, basil, and garlic. Then it’s topped off with a hearty amount of ricotta salata, or organic dried ricotta cheese.
Campanelle Quattro Formaggi
Any diner who attempts the Quattro Formaggi must have a serious love of cheese. This dish is simple and scrumptious to the last bite, and it’s admittedly one of the restaurant’s heavier options. Swiss, gorgonzola, parmesan, and homemade whole milk American cheeses are blended with La Festa’s unique recipe and served over fresh fusilli noodles.
A true taste of the Mediterranean, the Seafood Tagliatelle is a necessity for fans of classic Italian seafood dishes. Fresh shrimp, Nova Scotia mussels, South Carolina calamari, and local scallops are tossed together with emulsified dill oil and served over tagliatelle (made, of course, in-house). Combined with the signature marinara sauce, this delectable meal is a delight for all of the senses.
Each pasta option is homemade in-house at La Festa Restaurant, and always served on the same day. Pasta dishes are served with a Caesar or Mediterranean salad as an appetizer.
La Festa is known for its mouthwatering pasta dishes, brick oven pizzas, live entertainment (a piano player serenades guests, every night of the week), and an authentically Italian experience. It’s the ideal location for a date night, family night out, or even just because! Stop by the top Italian restaurant in Myrtle Beach tonight and try every incredible pasta dinner.
