I have recently brought two friends out there on separate occasions because they have never been. I have always been a fan of this place. Much better than turtle club or silver gulch. Both of my friends were very happy. Both couldn't believe they had never been there. This place just gained two more fans.

This is our absolute favorite eatery in Fairbanks area. It had great Italian food, seafood, and steaks. It is relatively easy to carry on a table conversation along with evening piano music that adds to the adult ambiance. Always very capable and hospitable waitresses for perfect service. We took our out of state guests here got their parting dinner.

We had a birthday party with about 20 people and the Vallata did a wonderful job! It was a pizza party and I must say their pizza is the best in town. Most of the time we order the New York steak! Best in town. Great beer and wine list too.

Lovely drive from Fairbanks. Atmosphere nice with light piano in the background. Food average but a nice place for the Interior.

I found this to be an unexpectedly nice restaurant. The appetizers we had (clams, calamari, mozzarella sticks were simply excellent. The main courses ranged from excellent to good (we had six different) and the desserts were good but not great. the wine selection was typical and offered sufficient choices from which I found great options for our meal. Sabrina was... More

We drove quite a distance to get to this restaurant, but it was worth it. My taste buds love Italian food and I eat it every chance I get. We ordered the Fettuccine with chicken and the Ravioli entrée, both good. The chicken was tender and pasta tasted pretty fresh. My husband did complain about their water having an after... More

We had dinner at the Vallata on a night when they were swamped with large parties. The food and service were still excellent. There was no delay, and our server was very efficient and saw that all our requests were filled quickly and efficiently. I was impressed. I had cannelloni, which were delicious, and my husband had veal parmesan which... More

This place is great depending on your taste. The atmosphere is something you don't get in most Fairbanks restaurants - darker, space enough around each table for a bit of privacy, beautiful building, etc. The variety of food is somewhat limited - most everything on the menu is topped with cream, cheese, or butter. There's no problem with that in... More
