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
  • "I never get tired of eating here! Our food and drinks were great! Service was quick and our server was knowledgable about the menu. Everything was clean and the atmosphere was fun! "

  • "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!"

  • "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. "

  • "The current menu is just so so... I really like the specials and menu a month ago. That experience was great and I was looking forward to coming back to try a few other things similarly. After this visit, we were both underwhelmed by the dishes we ordered. We had the spicy shrimp and the bolognese. The zucca chips (a must!) and ceasars were good, but I was really looking forward to my main course. In addition, our server was nice, but not all that attentive. It took a long time for him to bring drinks and he didn't check in very well. Maybe our prior server was just too good?! Actually, the server we had (whom I saw on this visit) was really good! We will probably try here again, but I won't be racing back soon."

  • "I wouldn't rush back. Appetizer had to be returned (it was taken off the bill) - manager had to take our credit cards because server did no retun to the table 3 out of 4 dishes were good"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Our waiter kept wanting to take our appetizer, salad, & dinner before we were done. Finally I just have in. & asked for a to go box for my dinner & he never brought it! He was rude & it simply was difficult to enjoy our dinner when he's taking it out from under us!"

  • "My wife and I had a great date night at NoRTH! The ambiance was great, the food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Since it was our first visit, we were given free Zucca chips - they were fantastic! We appreciated the staff's recommendations and attentiveness. We'll definitely be back!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The pasta is made fresh daily and was fantastic. Chicken Parmesan was tender and tasty. Spicy shrimp was very good if you like spicy food. Strozzapreti was excellent, nutty taste in a white cream sauce. We were given the Zucca chips as a free appetizer because it was our first vist to this restaurant. They were just okay, I'm glad we didn't pay for them. Oh also, their iced tea was great. Waiter said it was passion fruit flavored. Definitely will visit again!"

  • "We had gone to celebrate the lunch of my manager, and we had a great time! The server was very knowledgable, kind, and did a godd job, but it just takes more for me to give a five star. The food was good, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone. The BEST calamari I've had in a LONG time!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We enjoy ordering and sharing the small plates. The soups are always a treat and we look forward each time to trying new things on the menu."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "This was our first time to NoRTH and it will not be the last. The staff was amazing. Everyone was nice and it was apparent they love their jobs. Food is all made their from fresh ingredients - pasta and everything made there. The Zucca Chips melt in your mouth. They brought us tasters of the two wines we were debating on to ensure we got what we would like. I cannot say enough good things."

  • "Great spot, we always have a great time and a great meal here."

  • "Three of us split the zuc chips---such a treat with our cocktails. We all had a chicken and pasta entree that I cannot remember the name of, but do remember how much each one of us loved it. We split a gelato for desert and left planning our next dinner there. Our waiter was so patient with all of our splitting---even the bill. A top-notch experience. Thanks!!!"

  • "Had a lovely evening and a great meal at North this week. Micah was our waiter....he is an old friend and is so very attentive that it only adds to such a special evening event! Good food and wine, excellent service! Many thanks!"

  • "We booked this reservation last minute after finding ourselves hungry while shopping in KC. It was cold out and we ended up being a little early since we couldn't bear the chilly wind. We did not wait long, but found the bar area a bit cramped since our children could only stand in a heavy traffic area. Once we were seated we did have some complimentary zucchini chips for our wait. The rest of dinner went off without a hitch--food was prompt, hot and good. The food was comforting and classic enough that our kids were more than satisfied, but contemporary enough that my husband and I were equally happy. The wine list is not big, but many good choices. Local ingredients were a plus. We would heartily recommend North."

  • "North, with all of the glass seems very uplifting. Always start with zucca chips. The bread has sun dried tomato butter! I love their infused iced tea. Good food!"

    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We went to this spot for a taste of Italy. The food was mostly bland, but the drinks were good. Loud conversations created an uninvited environment for conversation or romance. A decent spot for people watching or a group dinner, but not much else."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Simple, clean, and delicious food. Not heavy and not "typical". Great service too :)"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This was our first visit to NoRTH for dinner. The entire experience was great! Our waiter took great care of us and helped us select some great items. Don't miss out on the Zucca chips...they are a great snack while you're contemplating what to order for your main course! We are looking forward to our next visit!"

  • "I introduced North to a good friend for lunch. The food was fine, much attention from various personnel. Nice location, and we will return."

  • "North is a very popular restaurant in this area. You always hear North mentioned in conversation whithin large gatherings. The service is awesome and the location is convenient."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "The food and wine was delicious, largely due to the knowledgeable waitstaff. When turning to them for suggestions, they made some simple inquiries and then a suggestion that was "spot-on" for everything we ordered. I took my sister for a birthday celebration,. At our age birthdays can be something you would like to forget, but this experience made it one to remember!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "NORTH is a delight! Everyone...from those who meet you at the door and wait on you, to management, and the chefs....make you feel welcomed, and well cared for. I love that they know who we are when we call or come in, too. That's excellence and fine business skill. And, the food? Magnifico! ...just imagine me kissing my fingertips with exclamation to that remark! Hmmm...did I mention the Nutella Trifle and "Old School" Affagato!?...Oh. My. Word. Just sit a while with a cappuccino and soak in all that happiness after a fantastic meal. NORTH - hip & upscale, warm & inviting. Food preferences or allergies? ....just ask. The NORTH staff and chefs will make you, like me, a delighted customer!"

  • "I made a reservation a week prior for Valentine's day. They called me 2 days before to confirm my reservation and told me it's going to be $55 a person not including gratuity or drinks. Well, I wasn't pleased that I wasn't informed of this info prior to making the reservation. At this point it was too late to make a reservation at some other restaurant so we decided to just stick with it. We got sat down at this little 2 person table with people on each side of us only about 2 feet away. It was very loud, very crowded. The food was very mediocre. The desserts were very unappetizing. The only good thing was the service. I would never recommend this restaurant for a holiday dinner. They're too expensive and busy to pay attention to quality!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Disappointed in our table - do not like table for 2 in center - too much traffic, tables are too crowded together. Food was good it was the atmosphere that didn't click with us."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "North Italia was the perfect dining experience for Valentine's day. The service was outstanding, and the young man waiting our table had a great amount of energy and really knew what he was talking about. I felt like we were friends after dinner was over. My date was totally overcome by the excellent atmosphere, not to mention the amazing food. We aren't talking about tiny little portions here either--you get what you pay for and in this case, that has a positive meaning. Also, I personally prefer quieter restaurants, but the noise level wasn't terrible (we never had to shout across the table). North Italia does an excellent job of providing the perfect atmosphere for dates."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The waiters and managers were very accommodating and friendly. Everyone went out of his/her way to be of assistance to my wife and me."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The food was delicious, all of the staff were pleasant and helpful, the waiter made great recommendations, and they've added some fun and tasty cocktails to their menu. The only thing I don't enjoy about North is the cramped space. You're close enough to the tables next to you that you feel as though you're dining with them, and if you're located at one of the small tables in the aisle you have to watch your elbows and be careful not to lean out or you risk being run into by someone walking through. The close proximity also make it difficult to have conversation (or to have conversation without the next table being part of it)."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The food and service are consistently fine. NoRTH is becoming one of my favorite places to eat. My new favorite is the vegetable salad. Terrific!"
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "The Zucca chips were amazing. My wife had the spinach pasta and added scallops which were perfect. I had the bolognese which was just ok. I probably would not get it again. Service was the best we've ever experienced."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Next time we will go at Happy Hour and order $4.00 Sangria and $3.00 Zuca Chips. Food is overpriced so well split something."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "North has good food and great service. I ordered the Atlantic salmon and it was Neely in the mouth delicious. The Suva chips are definitely a must try and so is the calamari Cons would be that they have somewhat of a restricted menu as far as the entrees were concerned. They have pizzas, pastas and antiipasta but I still thought it was somewhat restricted. But what they serve they do it well!"
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "Being a vegan it can sometimes be hard to find a restaurant that satisfies both me and my non-vegan husband. North offers some great salads, and by salads I don't mean just some lettuce and carrots. These are real salads with roasted vegetables, dates, and nuts. They're freshly prepared and such a good combination of flavors that I can't help coming back even though I live across town. And my husband even liked the zucca chips, which were made from zucchini, something he'd never try if it wasn't lightly fried."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
