Gambardella's - Fairbanks, Alaska

This was our first restaurant in Alaska and it was a decent dinner.  The price was a little high though.  That may be an Alaska or tourist town thing; time will tell.

The atmosphere was really nice, and the waiter was attentive and efficient.  The food was ready quickly and was very hot (first job of the restaurant - sat!)  Their beer selection was good and the menu was extensive and looked pretty authentic.

I had Alaskan Amber (3.5) and Kari had Alaskan Summer (3.0) (a Kolsch style beer that was okay, but not as good as Coast Brewing's - call me a homer.)

Kari had the Lasagna, which had 10 layers of pasta, a good amount of meat, cheese and sauce, and a huge portion.  We gave it a 3.25 - I would have it again.

I had the special, which was Rigatoni with Bolognese Sauce and Ricotta and Mozzarella Cheese.  This was also a good sized portion, piping hot, with lots of meaty sauce.  I scored it 3.25 as well.

The Salad had deliciously sweet grape tomatoes, a slice of provolone cheese and a really good Bleu Cheese dressing.  We scored it a 3.75.

The price was $65 including the tip.
