“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Gamberdellas has some wonderful items on the menu: Veggie sub, Italian cheese salad, Minestrone soup. The pizza is great. The service can be slow, so plan accordingly. The outdoor deck is beautiful in the summer.

“I wanted pasta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

so I looked out the window of the Bridgewater and voila... there it was. I had pasta with clams and mussels with a spicy sauce and a nice salad. The waitress forgot the wine but I insisted and I'm glad that I did; the house chianti was quite nice.

“Surprisingly good pasta dishes, hand made.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

I gathered from other reviews, stick with pasta.
The place is called "Pasta Bella." And it did not disappoint.
It was slightly haphazardly run, but just slightly.
The excellent food, freshly made pastas (ravioli and gnocchi), made everything fine, though.
The gnocchi was fluffy - indicative of freshly made goodness. If not freshly made, the pastas were excellently sourced. The sauces were delicious as well.
The bread was good, and the soups were even better.

The waiter showed up often, which is a feat in Alaska.
We sat outside, upstairs, and got a lovely view of the river. Downstairs has a picket fence around it, so no views there.

Just a tad weaker than Lavelle's Bistro, since it wasn't as cut and dry, but it trumped the Pump House & Chena's Alaskan Grille in food quality.

We had three meals at this restaurant and enjoyed all of them. We got something different with each meal and enjoyed them all.

We went there on our last night in Fairbanks and each of the four of us had a very good meal. Our waiter was excellent and the service was very good.
