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.

  • "The food is always reliably good here. We love the grilled artichoke and pizzas and the salmon, Bolognese pasta and gnocchi were delicious as were the Caesar salad and everything else we demolished. Our server was great and wish I could remember his name. We will be back!"

  • "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."

  • "Holy cow. This restaurant went above and beyond for my lady and I. I had being planning a special night out for a long time now and heard about North. So I thought let's give them a shot. I didn't expect all of what they had to offer. I am so thrilled with what they did for me and all they had to offer. Definitely best place I have ever been too. The romance level was up there for being a kid friendly place. Beautiful place inside and out. Wine was excellent, and my now girlfriend was completely surprised and swept right off her feet not only by myself but the staff as well. I will be returning and look forward to my next date night!!!"

  • "We recently visited North Arcadia with some out of town guests after we'd raved about the restaurant. Not only did it take over an hour to get our food (for pizza and salad, seriously??), when it arrived the pizza crust was so burned it wasn't edible. We had children with us and the waitress never offered anything for making them wait so long. No offer to reduce the bill, just the excuse that "the kitchen was backed up." If you're short-handed on kitchen staff, then hire more kitchen staff. In this competitive restaurant environment, you get one chance. We felt embarrassed at recommending the restaurant to our guests and needless to say, we will not make that mistake again."

  • "On a not-too-busy evening (and a Monday), you'd think the food would get to the table in a timely manner. However, we waited at least 20 minutes between the appetizer and the salads to come out, and another 20-25 minutes for the main courses to come out! There were only 4 of us, no special requests, just ordering straight from the menu (2 pizzas and one entree). Disappointing to say the least. However, the food was terrific. Our fault for not badgering the waiter more often!"

  • "I and my husband have eaten dinner at North several times. I have tried many of the menu items and my current favorite dish (until last Friday 3/14/14) was the Rosemary Chicken (which I will still order until they take it away....). This last Friday I asked about a dish I had seen on the menu for sometime - Braised Beef Ribs. Being that I have been a huge fan of Chelsea's Kitchen Beef Short Tib Tacos I was wondering how North prepared thier dish. While different than Chelsea's the short ribs were equally delish!! I will order these again for sure."

    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Food and service were great but the noise made conversation impossible. Great place to visit 1 on 1 at the bar, but talking across the table was impossible! We love lunch because it is so much easier to talk and still have wonderful food. Waiter was exceptional."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "I chose this place for the Spinach Tortellini, which is so really good. I am a vegetarian so options are limited. Two of the people in my party are vegetarians and I had told them about this dish. After we had our menus for a while and ordered some apps, the server advised us that the Spinach Tortellini was sold out. It was 6:30pm. Why wasn't it available? Didn't someone do a line check or something before the dinner rush was getting started? I can understand if its 10pm and they are out of a menu entree, but at 6:30? I had to settle for something else and my dinner companions went with individual pizzas. You can get pizza down the street at LGO and its much better for the price. Not the servers fault but still disappointed."

  • "Food and wait staff - great. Had to wait 30 minutes for a table in spite of having a reservation in place. Three ! [3] hostesses greeted us upon arriving. Overkill? Our guest couple waited 20 minutes for their car to be retrieved. Parking attendants could not locate their car."

  • "My husband and I met friends for dinner at North this weekend and had a wonderful time. Love the ambience, the wait staff is always attentive and friendly, the manager came by to say hello and make sure that everything was enjoyable. Our food was amazing as well. The noise level there is definitely high, so not ideal for a romantic outing, but excellent for high energy evenings."

  • "I have only good things to say about my experience at North. The drink I ordered, appetizer, main meal, & dessert were fantastic. The staff was friendly and checked in, which I really appreciated. I'm looking forward to trying more of the Fox Restaurant Concepts and revising this one."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "I dine out daily since it is just myself at the moment. I will definitely be back for more, as my Seasonal Vegetable Salad, and the Spaghetti and Meatballs, were wonderful and very flavorful. Don't forget to try the Bombolini, for dessert! Everything was delish!"
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Really liked the atmosphere at North Italia. Sat on the patio, it was a little loud from the street, but not too bad. I didn't like the "fixed" menu (for Valentine's Day), would have preferred to select form the regular menue. I thought $55 was pretty steep for Bruschetta, Spinach Tortellini and desert. I will go back on a regular night to try the full menu."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We specifically asked for a great waiter, and we had just the opposite. No personality, had to ask several times for things like water, another round of drinks, to turn on the heater, and to even have our table cleared. Took forever to get our food which was good, but I wouldn't come back here anytime soon."

  • "Was a bit underwhelmed with the service. Lunch time. Not too crowded. The bartender was taking care of us when he was not busy with his own duties. Other servers seemed to be interacting well with their tables - we just had poor luck."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "But dining in the enclosed patio space was nice and cozy. Since we love the North in Austin, we were excited to find one in Tuscon where we were attending the Gem & Mineral Expo. In summary, the food, waiter and ambience were all outstanding. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "Everything we ordered was perfect in this relaxed and comfortable atmosphere,,,, except the Cheese Board. Tiny cube of cheese, small dab of soft brie mound. There was plenty of chopped dates, yellow turnips etc but not enough cheese to accommodate the toppings. Our server was knowledgeable and very professional."

  • "Spent my partner's 46th Birthday here with his sister and brother-in-was. Was fantastic from the start. They wished him "Happy Birthday" at check in and then seated us at the table at the entrance to the patio (I had asked for not outside, as it will cool at dusk and not totally inside... they accomplished it ;-) We started with the Chef's Board sampler. Excellent selection! Main course consisted of Ricotta Gnocchi with Short Ribs (delectable), The Pesto Chicken (flavorful) and the Kale Salad with Salmon (hearty). We ended the dinner with The Bomboli and Hazelnut dessert. What a great night!! Oh, and THANK YOU for serving purified and delicious water. I totally appreciate the lack of chlorine smells in my water :-) Go now!"
