A word from NORTH Arcadia
North is offering a prix fixe menu and accepting reservations this Valentines Day! Please visit our website to view the menu and contact the restaurant directly to save your seat. We hope you will join us! Thanks, North
We’ve turned a modern lens on traditional Italian cooking. North Italia is our love letter to Italy—a place that’ll make you feel like you’ve stepped off a charming side street to discover a culinary gem. After a decade in business, we’ve learned a thing or two and we’re approaching perfection in the art of handmade pasta and pizza. Every day, we start from scratch to create dishes like Strozzapreti with Bloomsdale spinach or supple ribbons of tagliatelle for our Bolognese. Our pizza is a revelation: an airy, barely chewy center embraced by a perfectly crisp crust. With the spirit of the Italian taverna, North is the place to talk shop over a cocktail or swap gossip sharing delectable chef creations.Every neighborhood would be lucky to have a place like North.

Diner Reviews
  • "This may be the noisiest restaurant in Phoenix! There were 2 of us and we could barely hear each other. Great place to go to during off hours but definitely not on a Friday night if you want to enjoy a conversation."

  • "What a fantastic dining spot. Patio dining very nice, relaxing,off of 40th street but well located /hidden by landscaping. All fresh made pasta and pizza nice selection. For a girls night out hit the spot, can t beat the chefs board and salads big enought to share fresh hot pizza and then top it all off with to die for desserts and cappuccino. Service was excellent, our server Paul was very helpful with the wine list and selections."

  • "I met a friend on a Friday afternoon for lunch. It was a nice relaxing lunch, nothing rushed and lots of conversation. Our waitress was great. She was fun and really made our visit special. We were not rushed and took as much time as we wanted. What a great afternoon."

  • "We have dined at NORTH Arcadia several times and had found that Sunday evening was the optimal time to go--less noisy, pleasant. Unfortunately--for the first time--it was quite noisy on Sunday evening. After ordering, our first choice (mussels) became unavailable; a slight disappointment on a rather limited menu. All in all, the food is good, the staff is pleasant, and we will return."

  • "Had tried several other Fox Concept restaurants in the past and was not disappointed. Had family visiting from out of town and wanted to try someplace new. I made an excellent choice with North Arcadia. The food was excellent and our waitstaff very knowledgeable and friendly. One of us has dietary issues and they accommodated us with no fuss. I will definitely be back."

  • "Cool building, really delicious, well-priced food. We had great service--they split plate our salad and entree without us even asking and coursed the meal perfectly. It is very, very loud inside. Rustic and casual. Valet parking only."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Relaxing, great atmosphere, kid friendly, non-pretentious. One order came out later than the rest, the manager noticed and comp’d our dessert. As former servers (college days) we are now quite picky and appreciate the attention to detail!"

  • "We chose North because it was one of the few places that would take a reservation for less than 5 people on Father's Day. It turned out to be a great choice. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and efficient. We will definitely recommend NORTH Arcadia to our friends and will go there again ourselves."

  • "Went for saturday brunch with family. At 11:30am, it was not crowded and noise level was not an issue (I have been here in the evening and could barely hear the person next to me). The beet salad and vegetable salads were exceptional. I shared a pizza and it was plenty for two and we thought the crust was great. Brother in law had a hamburger--was not particularly happy with the internal temp of his meat. Manager came to table and made it right, so not a big deal. Pasta dish was passed around and was very good. I love this place and could eat everything on the menu!"

  • "The one issue with most of Fox restaurants is the noise level. We were lucky to have patio dining which was not noisy. But, the inside dining room was loud. In particular, we found this to be the same at The Henry, which, unless we had patio dining, we would not eat at again. That is disturbing as we really like the food and menu there. We're told nowadays that's part of the ambience, "energetic" we're told. To us, not "energetic", noisy and can't carry on a conversation with the people seated with you. Other than that, we've eaten at North Arcadia several times, and as long as we get patio dining we will continue going there. "

  • "The food was good and the service was great. We had an appetizer that we didn't like and they brought us a free dessert to make up for it."

  • "I met some friends for happy hour and loved this place! The ambience was nice and everyone was so pleasant. The food was delicious and the service was great. Big shot out to the chef and to our server, Stephanie. She was so nice and accommodating since it was our first time there. Nice job! We will definitely be back!"

  • "We enjoy this place every time we go. Normally we attend weekday happy-hour special at the bar. The open bar with exterior views and open windows during the nice time of the year are perfect for that outdoor but yet comfortable setting. The appetizer selections are diverse and delicious. Our favorite - The meat and cheese board. The patio is perfect for our family setting (we have 2 young boys). We love the ambiance of the place and the menu is one of the best - creative yet offers a simple dining experience."

  • "I liked the service and the food. Its informal, and the restaurant is airy and bright. There is a nice bar with TVs. The patio is roomy and pleasant to dine. The far south side of the patio allows the sun in, so at sunset be careful if you don't like the sun in your face."

  • "I brought my mom in for Mothers Day Dinner the night before. She loves Italian food so I thought we would give it a try. It was amazing. The food was delicious. I loved the decor. The service was great, we didn't feel rushed at all. I tried the Richotta Gnochi, a smaller portion but still filling and delicious. Mom tried a chicken dish that was very good and a larger portion. We loved the Salted Carmel desert. We will definitely be back!"

  • "We have been here a few times and have never had a problem... Let's hope this visit was out of the norm. My husband I like this restaurant. We placed our order when the server came to offer us drinks (as we were pretty hungry). At the time we placed our order, a table, also for 2 was seated next to us. We watched them get their appetizers, entrees, and then desert before our entrees came. The server came to apologize for our patience twice... and then we got our food and it was cool/cold. We were extremely disappointed! I usually tell people how good the food is and what a super place but I don't know if we will be back. Neither the food or service was acceptable."

  • "What a great spot!!! Thank you Fox Reataurant Concepts for bringing us another great place to wine and dine with friends. Unique menu, GREAT pizza, and who can pass up 1/2 price bottles of wine on a beautiful Sunday afternoon? Not me! Loved the patio out front. The fun mix&match tile work on the South Wall was fun to "study" like abstract art in a gallery, and the ficus trees provided a nice visually pleasing barricade to the sometimes busy 40th street. I'll be back... Sooner, rather than later, for sure. "

  • "Very busy on past 2 Friday nights. Food was very good and the service was superior. Not a quiet place but it wasn't too excessive on the noise either. I will be back for sure. Reasonable prices for well prepared and presented food. Facility is nice also."

  • "Thoughtful food and everything was presentable, friendly and great. Look forward to going again. I'd recommend it. Of course I go there about once every three weeks. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "The food was predictably good, as are most of the Fox restaurants, and we enjoyed dining outside on a Tuesday night with a nearly full patio. The only suggestion I have is that the wine list needs to be improved. If price is a problem, search the Chilean, Argentinean or New Zealand offerings that offer 90 point value at a reasonable price; otherwise, I may stick to club soda on my next visit."

  • "We took our family of 4 to North --we love Fox Concepts restaurants -- fresh food, open kitchen, good service. This place has a nice atmosphere and it's very family friendly, although I think the best advice is always to take your kids to an early seating, which we did. "

  • "My family was visiting from Los Angeles, CA and I wanted to take them somewhere in our neighborhood. We had not yet tried NORTH, but had driven by numerous times, waiting for the right opportunity. I wish we wouldn't have waited so long. Our waiter was vey knowledgeable and attentive. The sauces and pastas are made in house and were amazing. Each dish was flavored perfectly. The guava and blackberry gelato were a great finisher. We are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you!"

  • "Met a friend for lunch and enjoyed the beautiful patio. It was an overcast day and perfect for sitting outside. Had the chef's board combination of cheese, meat and seasonal items -- it was outstanding! Very filling and I had the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. Also have to compliment on their bread, it was fresh and tasty. Iced tea was refreshing and the servers were great at keeping it refilled. Excellent service and it was crazy fast! Will definitely be back again."

  • "North manages to mix delicious and delightful with neighborhood coziness...and they never fail. Scallops, Pizza, Vino...who could ask for more on a patio with enough space to converse with your table mate privately...while listening to birds sing and enjoying the view."

  • "My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our brunch at North. The custard-filled doughnuts were outstanding! My Pig Pizza was delicious and my wife's eggs and polenta were very tasty. The Milano Mule mixed drink is a must-try as well. Our food was slow in coming so be prepared to sit back and savor your coffee or cocktail, but it was Sunday at 11:30 and it was well worth the wait."

  • "I used to visit this restaurant the first year they opened. I moved and just made it back to the area and decided to visit. The menu has changed and is a miss. Food is now more traditional medicore American Italian restaurant. North has lost its unique taste and flavors for getting more customers into the restaurant. I would not recommend due the price for the lack of quality. "
