A word from North - Denver
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.

    My fiance and I have been to North so many times I can't even count any more. WE love going there, the food and staff are great. From their apps to their dessert you can't go wrong. Everything is fresh and made from scratch. I totally recommend the arancini app, probably the best thing I have ever eaten. It does get a little noisy in there from time to time, otherwise it is the best!

    North has consistently good food. The lunch menu is varied, and the food can easily be split. The service was fine, but not great. I think it is a solid restaurant that always delivers a pleasant dining experience.

    We visit North several times a year. The food is always really great. The service is exception. Our server, Ben, remembers us with a warm greeting and takes great care to provide us with terrific service. He anticipates our needs and makes sure that we have everything we need. The restaurant is gorgeous with large windows opening to a beautiful setting. We will be back often.

    Fresh, delicious, creative dishes and professional service drew us back two nights in a row. We especially loved the burrata, the seasonal vegetable salad and the aaahhhh- inducing branzino. If you still have room, try the olive oil cake. Nice wone selection, but by the glass prices are high. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable as well as very accommodating if, for example, you want to taste a few wines before deciding.

    The restaurant was extremely loud the evening that we went and there didn't seem like there was anywhere to go to escape it. Unfortunately it was raining out so we couldn't even eat outside which is not very quiet either. Other than that, the food was delicious, the service was great and I would recommend it to anyone who is into the vibrant bar scene. Definitely a single type atmosphere, certainly not for families.

    Went to North for a last minute dinner out on a Sunday night. We were pleasantly surprised that the place had some buzz, even on a Sunday at 8 pm. Good food as always, Fox RC does a great job of making their places seem "local," even though they are not necessarily so.

    We love North although sometimes our relationship is like a marriage great sometimes and other times not so much --- although we do remain loyal and committed. We had dinner 2 weeks earlier and it was truly outstanding. This time the food was very, very good but not as good as two weeks ago. The GRILLED BRANZINO is an excellent fish - light, flavorful - prepared just right - excellent. The STROZZAPRETI Pasta which is a signature dish is usually outstanding - not this visit. The food was not served immediately after preparation so it was a little cold but not enough where I would send it back. Now if I could just get a good Makers Mark Manhattan on the rocks . . . after 3 trys I'm thinking I should stick to wine!

    The chicken and vegetables is a delicious dish. The Branzino fish was perfectly cooked. But, the pasta and shrimp only so so. The restaurant strives to be top notch, so why not make sure bread is tasty?

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/25/2014
    We have dined at North many times. It is one of our favorites. Unfortunately, the service was not up to North's usual high standards. It took a long time to get our dinner order. The couple next to us came in 20 minutes after us. They were served and paid for their meal before we received our meals. The waiter told us our order would be out in 3 minutes - it was another 15 minutes. I wish there had been an apology from somebody who was responsible. It is still one of our favorites - chalk it up to an off night?

    My parents were visiting (I'm 24, they're early-mid forties) and I took them to dinner here for their final night. There were 4 of us total, we ordered something off every menu, and there were a few strange requests here or there. Our waiter handled everything greatly, the food was delicious, and overall my parents left very pleased before catching the red eye. Though this was my 2nd time attending North, I'll happily go there for a 3rd, 4th, and umpttenth time when the opportunity arises.
