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
  • "Seems to me that although I love noRth, the more I dine there, the more I am aware of how noisy it is when it is above 50% table occupancy. This time it was that uncomfortable that we asked to have our lunch packaged and we went to the park to finish our meal and visit. I still enjoy the restaurant but will plan my visits around "off" hours from now on."

  • "I selected North for my wife's birthday because it was new for us and she likes Italian. We were not disappointed. The red sangria is excellent. We started off with the roasted artichoke - a favorite at home - it was very good. Both of us ordered a seafood entree. My wife got the scallops and I got a white fish. Both were excellent."

  • "I suggested NoRTH to friends for lunch, because I'd had a positive first experience there last month. I'm sorry I did! After ordering salads (not even hot food!), we waited ONE HOUR and still no food was served to us. I left our table and asked to speak to the manager. He got our salads to us, but my seasonal vegetable salad was missing Marcona almonds, orange segments & corn!! At that point, it wasn't even worth mentioning! Service staff offered us a free dessert for the long wait, which we agreed to. Ironically, it then took 15 minutes for the dessert to arrive! Last month, I thought I'd found a new place for a fun lunch out. Now, I won't go back. Very disappointing...and sorry I suggested NoRTH to friends."

  • "Had a great time with a dear friend for a belated birthday lunch. Our waiter was very helpful, gave us good advice and told us the 2 best desserts to choose from. The one I chose was excellent! I loved my fig and goat cheese pizza. Had half of it for dinner last night. Tasted just as good as it did at lunch. Would recommend North to friends and family!!"

  • "We went during the all day Happy Hour on Sunday, and we loved it! The Zucca Chips are quite good... everything was good. I ordered something ordinary - spaghetti and meatballs - and I was surprised at how flavorful it was. Not ordinary at all! The prices are reasonable, and the service was good. I would recommend sitting outside for privacy - the inside was crowded, noisy and open."

  • "This is the first time that we have experienced a less than satisfactory meal at North. The spicy shrimp dish was terribly disappointing. The shrimp were so small and there were only six of them. I was expecting gulf shrimp and what I received were six "popcorn" shrimp. I was disgusted. This should not be reflection on Jonathan, our server - he did an excellent job. The manager came to our table and asked "How was your excellent meal?" Clearly not the correct approach when asking for input."

  • "I've eaten here twice. The first time was good, the second time, not so much. Service is attentive, perhaps too much so, and seems rehearsed as if the wait staff and host/hostesses were trained extensively. It doesn't feel authentic, but rather scripted. The food is variable. The first pasta I had was good, but the second (chicken pesto) had too much oil and not enough basil. The salads were good (beet salad was particularly good). My second visit was on a Monday night. Perhaps that had something to do with the variability."

  • "The food was outstanding. The server had to be asked for bread. Two additional employees came by the table which was nice."

  • "Why do we like North?...SERVICE!...from the truly appreciative welcome at the host stand to the quick greeting and drink order request from our server...this time was Deb...comfortable and cool modern seating and decor...FOOD...this time red sangria with an order of addictive zucca chips (just try them!...I bet you can eat just one!) Caesar salads and a fig and prosciutto pizza...cold salads and a fresh HOT pizza...delicious!!!...MANAGEMENT...thank you for stopping at our table really visiting...I am a customer service trainer and you are where you should be!...and we loved the salted caramel dessert!...thank you all for another OUTSTANDING experience at NORTH..."

  • "The zucca fries are the appetizer of choice for us - and we also love the risotto balls, and I will never eat chicken Parmesan anywhere else. Their pizzas are also great and it's nice you can split them and try 2 types at the same dinner. We love going to North! But, we always skip dessert and go to Glace down the way for Christopher Elbow ice cream."

  • "I simply can't say enough about this place. It all started before I got to the door! I was still in the parking lot, when the hostess opened the door and greeted me with a smile and a "good evening". She was super sweet and complimented my jewelry. I requested a table on the patio and she made sure I was comfortable with my table before she sat me there. I was waiting on a friend, but my server stopped by (but not too many times) to make sure I was okay while I was waiting. And once she did arrive, he was respectful in letting us catch up for a moment before he came back. The atmosphere was cozy-retro-chic and the food was to die for. We definitely plan to return."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."

    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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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."
