Our dental staff wanted to take ouur owner doctor for lunch for her birthday. They chose Originale. We were only 5 and even though they were not very busy around 12:45 for lunch, it took far too long to order, with 1 person doing it all. Then service was slow. The food was tasty, but my spicy grilled sandwich cost... More

I haven't been here in a little while, but I really love this restaurant. It is run by an Italian family. I believe I have seen two parents and two older children possibly, but I could be wrong. They have some nice Italian grocery items when you first walk in, and some daily special items in the display case as... More

My favorite cappuccino in Anchorage is at Originale. They import Purissimo beans from Italy, which I buy and use at home. Alas, my at-home version never turns out as well as it does in the restaurant. The decor is fun, with a wall mural, witticisms posted here and there, and Italian hand gestures posted on the walls and napkin holders.... More

This place is a true gem. I have been blown away by the flavors every time I have eaten here. This is a true Italian eatery, and the flavors are intense. I have enjoyed their soups, salads, and sandwiches. I always intend on eating half of the sandwich, but end up eating the whole. Try the fresh lime drink. It... More

After enjoying wonderful food in Italy on a vacation last fall, I have been looking for a true Italian experience. Originale is the place. The add the extra attention to flavor and detail that I so appreciated in Italy. Wholesome, tasty, and gourmet touches. How can their potato vegetable salad taste sooo good??

Love these sandwiches, they are a little pricey since you don't get anything with them but a pickle and they don't look very impressive but they are sooo good. Family run by very nice people.

We stumbled upon this restaurant last winter and have returned many times for lunch or coffee and desert. We love the setting, it feels very much like a loft setting. The family that owns it is so very enjoyable, it is like being in Italy. You owe it to yourself to take yourself to lunch at this great place.

We went the first time because we heard there is no better cappuccino in Alaska. We kept coming because the menu is full of delicious sandwiches, desserts, pastas and salads. The specials of the day are creative wonders. This place is run by a lovely family, parents, son and daughter. They speak Italian, of course. It is our favorite lunch... More

The food is excellent with a wide variety of sandwiches. I recommend the daily specials which are excellent. The desserts are delightful, not too sweet and very tasty.
