I wasn't going to write a review of Gambardella's although the food and service were really good but I felt I simply had to after reading the review from Teresa R - "Gambardella's Pasta Bella - Yikes'. Rarely have I read such ridiculous and unbelievable criticisms of anywhere on TripAdvisor. The napkins using over-scented fabric conditioner is one you really... More

I'm not a hater by nature and it's a little painful for me to leave bad reviews, but unfortunately the food and ambiance at Gambardella's were just sadly sub-par. I had cheese ravioli with cream sauce and my husband had gnocchi. Both were very over-salted (and I say this as a salt-lover) and over-seasoned. My pasta was a little overcooked,... More

Service was very good. My wife thought her order was excellent. My oder's main entree was very good; however, the side dish was only luke warm. I would recommend this restaurant if you are looking for Italian food.

Nice easy to find that special dining place for a large group downtown Fairbanks, but we sure accomplished the task with Gambardella's. Not a chain, this family owned and run establishment has some excellent history dating back to it's founders from Italy. Wonderful pasta, the menu had something for everyone at the table. The owners were very friendly and happy... More

We had good lasagna and fresh baked bread. Friendly people provided good service. Pretty little restaurant strung out thru several rooms. Lunch prices are reasonable. Would eat lunch here again.

We wanted pasta and found this place to our surprise. We were shown to our table and waited for a long while to have someone come back. Other folks who came in after us got served first and overall was slow. We like to take our time but this was excessive. The waiter did apologize but it was tool ate... More

While living in Fairbanks we would often eat at Gamberdella's. This was a family owned business and they took pride in offering wonderful food. The best pizza in Fairbanks! Never had a bad meal here. Often ate dinner here but would also enjoy their lunches.

I have heard many good things about this restaurant. However, my experience was VERY unsatisfactory. At first we waited several minutes to be seated. Then over 15 minutes to order. It was about 45 minutes until we received our food. Our waitress was wearing jeans with rips torn in them all down the front. and a t-shirt with some sort... More

We were hungry and tired from our all day plane trip. The food was decent. A reservation would be great, but we got in after a 20 or 30 minute wait.

Second visit this year and they still prove to fall short in service and quality. Little attentiveness to our table from the server, the food was not near fair quality in an establishment that I would expect it to be a step above the norm. No reason to attempt a third visit.
