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.

    This restaurant is spot on for an early evening cocktail or late night beverage. I am happy to write that the dining experience is equally superb. Had a wonderful waiter, friendly smiling sores and delicious meal. Great to know we have a place to count on for all occasions!

    Everything about this restaurant was great! The interior of the space is very reminiscent of a New York loft (lots of brick walls and concrete floors). The food was sooooo good. There were really only a couple of misses. I had made a reservation for my husband's birthday and the hostess didn't let our server know. The server graciously took care of a desert for him after we'd commented on it. The muscles were just a bit overcooked, but still very tasty. You must try the beet salad and cheese ravioli, not to mention their Tiramisu! Their pitchers of Sangria actually taste like a Sangria should - more of a red wine flavor than fruit juice.

    Nothing about this experience was terrible...but nothing about it makes me want to go there again, either. I had reserved a table for two (date night with hubs), and the table we were shown to was tiny and squished a hip's width apart from two other tiny tables. The pastas we ordered were just average, but the Cabernet was good. Service was fine, even though the waitress tried to take my glass instead of asking if I wanted another, which was annoying, because, um, I did. Overall, it just seemed a bit expensive for what was offered. Pizza. Some cool sounding salads. Honestly, I like Carrabba's better, and I've been to Northern Italy. ;-)

    After reading reviews online, we decided to make a request for a quiet table in the back of the restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our server was terrific, she recommended delicious options for the entire meal....highly recommend the burrata as a starter (ask for extra bread), the Italian farm salad was delicious (the vinaigrette was so light and flavorful), the Bolognese for a terrific pasta dish (they can serve a smaller portion by request), and the donuts are a must so save room or ask for a to-go container. Thanks again...we will be back!

    Tried North for the first time last night. The ambiance was very energetic. I was on a date so where they had seated us wasn't ideal, however, we made it work. The flavors of the food were good. We enjoyed everything we had, but felt some what cheated by the entree. Full sticker price for a small portion. We will stick the apps and salads next time; perhaps we will go for a pizza. The service was ok; the server was friendly however did not talk much to us or explain the menu or what we were eating. We had to guess as to what was in the specialty butter we were served with the bread. We will go back to North and try other items on the menu, but we will just stay away from the less bang for your bucks entrees.

    Met friends for a weeknight meal and drinks- our server was Alan - service was very slow and over all way below the bar we expect from North- 1 appetizer was ok not good but 3/4 people ate it- our 2nd appetizer was delicious- Alan was upset we did not let him know appetizer was not great( he did not check in a reasonable amount of time ) and he stated , I can't take it off the bill since you have eaten it- and appeared to be angry- we did not expect it to be removed from the bill but when asked "How were the appetizers?" we merely answered honestly. The rest of evening , he was standoffish and had way too much attitude.( Not good attitude)

    Service was exceptionally when we went for our date night last Saturday. We spent about an hour just sitting and waiting for food or our check. Food was barely warm when served. There are plenty of other places in Denver to eat, no need to go to North. The food is not that special and service is plainly non-existent.

    The food was amazing, we enjoyed everything we ordered however the Bruschetta and Calamari starter were "surprisingly" superb! We always order the Rosemary Chicken and it didn't disappoint and the Scallop entree was just incredible. The staff were wonderful and the specialty cocktails that they recommended were delicious, each subtle ingredient compliments the other and they have a nice wine selection as well. We shared the Tirimisu for dessert which was a nice finish to a wonderful evening.

    North has become a fixture in the Cherry Creek area. It is popular with both the young and older crowd. The menu is relatively simple with mostly Italian dishes. Food quality is good and presentation is attractive. There is a rather large wine selection with a regular list and a more expensive reserve list. Service is friendly and efficient. This is an energetic restaurant and it can get noisy when it is full (which is often). We always enjoy eating at North and will continue to frequent it.

    We dined recently at North and loved, loved, loved the menu. The grilled artichoke was incredibly tasty, but the beet salad won all the honors with its whipped lemony dressing. We also had very good pasta dishes, but the appetizers won the evening. Prices are moderate and service was outstanding.

    We like to sit back and enjoy our wine/cocktails/conversation for a while. before ordering dinner. We told our waiter that, and reminded him several times that we would "flag him down" when we were "zeroing in on ordering". He frequently came by the table anyway, asking us how things were going, and we didn't need him to do that, and thought that we had communicated that (we arrived at 5 p.m. on a Wed, so there wasn't a need for our table). Other than feeling a little bit "hover-crafted", we loved our experience and food. We will be back, but would love to be able to "just chill" without constant "checking in", when we had already requested to not have that done.
