A word from NoRTH - Kansas City
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
  • "Pleasant servers, nice patio scene but my associate and I, having both ordered the shrimp pasta, were underwhelmed by the size and number of shrimp in the dish. We did like the pasta and sauce though."

  • "What a great meal! The food was wonderful, service excellent. We will be returning soon!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Excellent wait staff, fantastic chef. We've been twice: Friday night and Monday night. Excellent on both occasions. Fair bit of seafood on the menu, and they know how to prepare it without destroying it in a hellish excess of cooking time. Wine list is pricey, but the selections on their reserve list are not the run-of-the-mill and are worth a modest splurge."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "North is a very nice spot for lunch, drinks or dinner. The food is fresh and well prepared and the service consistently top notch. I've been several times and have never been disappointed. Clearly someone has a handle on making sure all the basics are done and done well, and in hiring and empowering a strong staff - which sounds simple but is remarkably unusual. Great spot!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Oh My!-This was so outstanding! I had just come back from Italy and this rivaled the different types of pizza you get in Italy. No wonder I keep coming back every business trip to KC. North is a gem-the food is awesome and the wait staff service outstanding. You must have the Zucca chips too!"

  • "We loved our food. Nice outdoor patio. Server was very helpful in helping us decide what to try since it was our first visit to the restaurant."

  • "I'm not sure how NoRTH continues to survive in a competitive suburban restaurant scene in JoCo. The ambience is sterile and noisy and the food is mediocre. I had dined here a couple of years ago, walked away unimpressed but decided to give it a second try recently. My takeaway was, again, "unimpressed." The service was attentive but the appetizers and entrees were just okay. I won't go back as there are other local venues that are consistently good and provide a better value."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "After a hectic weekend, dining at North on Monday night hit the spot! Our server was friendly and attentive. She knew the menu well, and the explanations she gave of menu items and her recommendations were definitely appreciated. The spicy shrimp pasta had the kick I wanted, and I would definitely order it again! The specialty pizza that night was creative and provided a nice change of pace."

  • "Happy Hour is one of the best in the city. the $20.00 bottle of wine and pizza is always a winner. The "Chef's Choice Pizza" is a perfect amount for 2 people."

  • "I've dined at NoRTH on several occasions over the years, and can honestly say I was disappointed in the overall experience of this visit. The bartender made me feel silly about a drink I inquired about that was no longer on the menu, and our waitress was fine, but perhaps was a little too involved in our conversation. I had to ask for bread when our meal came, which I found annoying since I was there with a client. Also, they've changed their menu and I feel like it's not that special anymore, which is sad. Our food was fine, but perhaps because of the service my opinion is skewed? I hope this was just a one time thing, and next time it will be better. Fingers crossed."

  • "Centrally located, reasonable prices, excellent menu and service. North Italia is ideal for bringing clients to lunch."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Our second meal at North lived up to the high expectations set by our first visit. The Bolognese is probably the best pasta dish I've ever tasted (and my girlfriend and mother-in-law second that). All their noodles are homemade every morning, and you can tell in each one of their dishes. Great atmosphere and another great meal. If only the prices came down $3-$5 a dish, then I would be hard pressed to NOT eat here once a week. I'll be back again."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We love north probably our favorite restaurant in JOCO. The food is delicious, the service is solid and the desserts yummy. Can't beat the zucca chips and salted caramel bundino. Also enjoyed the new olive cake."

  • "Great food, great service and everything made from scratch!!"

  • "We had a wonderful meal with friends on the patio. Of course, the perfect weather helped. Our server was great and right on with his recommendations."

  • "Food was good but nothing special. Expected more flavor but was more towards the blah side. Service was ok."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We've been to NoRTH several times and have always had a good experience. This time I ordered the Strozzapreti which had all ingredients that I like listed, but...it came with truffle oil, which was not listed on the menu. I'm not sure if you're aware of what truffle oil smells like, but it is very pungent. For me, it causes a gag reflex so I'm very careful not to order anything made in truffle oil. I wasn't going to say anything to the manager (he's the one who brought it), but he asked if everything was okay and my husband kindly spoke up. The manager quickly brought out one without the truffle oil. Great customer service, as always. Oh, and the zucca chips are AMAZING!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Great restaurant the food is fresh and taste like home made food.. There are only short list of 5 or 6 sweets types in the dessert menu which I wish they will have more."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Heard about NoRTH from a friend at work. The staff was amazing and we loved the selection of cocktails. We had the chef's block and tried the Branzoni which was amazing. There were so many things that we wanted to try so we will need to go back soon. "
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "All the menu items we tried were fantastic! Dined on the patio on a pleasant evening. Server was very knowledgable and attentive. Will definitely go back. "

  • "When so many restaurants close their doors for a holiday, NoRTH welcomed their customers enjoying their day off by offering a 25% off coupon to their email members. With family and friends in town over the weekend, it was a fun way to all come together and share the experience together. I'd certainly go back again."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "I have taken people here on many occasion and have been delighted at every meal. The food is fresh and the sangria is lovely. Most recently I ate the salmon and it was perfectly prepared. You can't go wrong with any dish at NoRTH. Excellent service also."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Great food. Crowded tables which makes conversation difficult."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "My group of 4 dined on a Friday night. Our reservation was was for 7:45 and we didn't have to wait upon arrival. Zucca chips and the sangria were great. Wiuld definitely recommend the funghi pizza and chicken pesto as well. Service was good, but sometimes hard to hear because it got pretty loud when the place was full. By 9:00 it was much quieter giving us a great chance to visit over coffee."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Great find for a Sunday Mothers Day brunch! Very affordable, creative and friendly. Whether a special occasion like Mother's Day or special evening or relaxed contemporary lunch or dinner NoRTH is the place. Highly recommended "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I always feel like I'm eating vegetables that were picked that day. The fish I had, halibut, also tasted fresh even in our landlocked state. The halibut was the special of the day with a perfectly seared crust. My kids all had the french toast. I was a little concerned when it looked different than french toast they were used to, since I have one child that doesn't stray too much from the norm when it comes to food, but he ate as much as his stomach would allow. It was delicious! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Great menu with selections to suit everyone. The sangria was very good as is the wine list. Everyone in our group enjoyed their dinner - portions were good size and definitely felt the prices were reasonable. Will continue to introduce others to North!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "North proved to be a pleasant location for a business lunch. The menu had a good variety, the service was excellent and the tone of the setting was neither too casual nor too stuffy."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We are picky about our pasta--and we were skeptical because North is part of a chain/group. But we have really enjoyed North. The salted caramel dessert is a winner, too."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We attended for lunch to celebrate a co-workers birthday. We were so lucky to have Adam as our server. He was absolutely amazing and was also celebrating his birthday on the same day. He was very skillful at coming around just at the right time and not too much or too little. He was entertaining and engaging. The food is always amazing but this was the best service I've had in a long time at any restaurant. The zucca chips are always delicious. The strozzapreti, salmon and spicy shrimp dishes were all fantastic. Thanks for another great experience."

  • "North is a pleasant change of pace from traditional Italian restaurants. I have LOVED everything on the menu of calamari appetizer to salted carmel dessert. The salads are amazing and everything is fresh and flavorful. Beyond the delicious food, the service at North is always spot on. They are attentive and responsive but not over bearing. I have been there for both a romantic lunch and a family dinner. It hits the spot every time. "

  • "My family and a couple of guests ate at North Easter Sunday. We were more than pleased. My wife said the "special of the day" fish was the best she'd ever tasted. The waiter was very attentive. A manager came by to see if we were pleased. We also felt the prices (not high) were good given the quality of what we received. We definitely will return to North. "

  • "It's hard eating out if you have gluten allergies, especially if you love Italian food, but NoRTH does an outstanding job of accommodating those with food allergies. Our server was extremely knowledgable about gluten allergies, something many restaurants overlook in customer service, and he made recommendations that were spot on. We had a great meal with gluten free pasta! NoRTH will become our go-to Italian place!"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "We made a reservation for 11:45 AM; we did not have to wait to be seated. Their staff was very accommodating & professional. NoRTH has a warm and inviting atmosphere (FarmHouseChic). The food was exquisite. We ordered the Zucca chips to share, YUM! Ordered the Italian Farm salad; Molinari salami, provolone cheese, roasted peppers, (red onion was substituted with pickled red onion), olives, with italian vinaigrette. Everything was perfect and if you like European sized portions the serving size was absolutely perfect. Overall, we had a fabulous time. "
