Italian to get by

arguably the best italian restaurant in fairbanks. That said don't expect 5 star service. Its a place to get by if you are in fairbanks and we have to remember you're not in a big city or expecting italian in the likes of vancouver. Staff is very pleasant

My coworkers and I had lunch here last Friday and it was great. You can order off the menu or you can eat the buffet. They have a great salad bar and offer spaghetti with two different sauces. They also have great garlic bread.

We love Italian food, but this place was a bit disappointing. I had the lasagna and my wife the spaghetti and both had way too much garlic in the sauce. They do have signs all over the restaurant about garlic so maybe it is there thing. The place looks ok, but the furniture is a bit worn. The service was... More

I ordered my ribeye medium, it was was still mooing, I'll stick with med-well next time. Our appetizer arrived maybe two minuets ahead of our main course. Our server had to be clued in to refill my soda more then once. The of our meals and desserts where very good. The "Taste of Garlic" is on the front of the... More

A wonderful place to eat in Fairbanks! We were amazed at the extent of the menu. The seafood portofino was awesome, as was the veal. The service was excellent...not too hovering. A very good memory of Fairbanks!

We had dinner here. It did take awhile for the food to be served but it was very good. They have a nice salad bar with a good selection of items. Wine can be ordered by the glass or bottle. There is an outside area for eating if the weather if favorable. The staff is courteous and attentative. They also... More

Great little Italian restaurant within walking distance of Bear Lodge. I had the lasagne, which was OK, although a little too light on flavor/seasoning.

Sorry to say that everything my son and I ordered was sub-par in every way. The place looks nice enough but it ends there. My son ordered Chicken Parm and the chicken was overcooked and way over spiced with garlic. The pasta was overcooked and also over spiced with garlic. I had the Chicken Parm sandwich and the chicken was... More

Fairbanks virtually has no good restaurants save for a couple Thai places and Lavelle's which is about the best Fairbanks can do it seems. To it's credit the restaurant did undergo a renovation which made it look nicer, but the food did not change. I would rather go to a hole in the wall and get good food that someplace... More
