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
  • "Stellar service and each of the 4 meals at the table were outstanding. Fresh ingredients, well paired flavors with terrific suggestions. We loved everything about our visit. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Great restaurant with fun ambience; however, we liked the "old" look better. Food is always very good. Brunch on Easter Sunday had great choices; however, food wasn't hot. North always more than willing to make things better! Will always return."

  • "great food, great service. always a winner. Short ribs wree amazing and the best grilled artichoke hands down. "

  • "Don't go to this restaurant if you have plans to attempt to carry on a conversation with anyone. It won't happen. It's by far the noisiest place I've ever been. Plus we were blessed by a group of ten at the next table with a couple of people who felt they needed to outshout each other to make their point. Staring didn't help. I ordered the soup and the salmon. The soup was good, but lukewarm and very, very salty. The salmon, when it finally arrived, was cold. It sent it back. After about 15 minutes, I got another plate and this one was edible. I'm assuming the restaurant approves of the noise level (hip, happening) because there has been no effort to dampen it. No carpeting. Metal ceiling. "

  • "From out of town, this is the second time I've been here, thus time with my daughter and husband! The service is excellent! The food Is delicious and very attentive service, though it took two asks to get Parm cheese. We were seated outside it was cozy and quiet. Well definetly be back and may try the one in Phoenix."

  • "I went to University of Arizona and used to come here a lot. My husband and I were just in Tucson and went to North after five years. It has always been great looking restaurant, but they have changed the design a bit and it looks even better! Trendy, yet homey inside. The service was great as were the drinks and food! Recommendations - Calamari salad - Strozzapreti -Ricotta Gnocchi This is a must when you want a nice dinner out, that has reasonable prices for what you get. Will definitely return every time we're in Tucson!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The food was delicious and the service was great. Everything we (5 ladies) had we would order again...appetizers to dessert. Looking forward to returning."

  • "It's rare to find restaurants that offer consistently good food in a great atmosphere. The surrounding area and view is beautiful. Great energy inside the restaurant with a modern style."

  • "Visited North last Saturday night. The place is VERY loud. You literally cannot hear the person right next to you unless you scream. The service was very bad. Waited about 15 minutes for our waiter to come by. We ordered our drinks. A few minutes later he came back, without drinks, and we ordered our appetizers and entrees. About five minutes later the appetizer came but still no drinks. About ten minutes after that, we saw he was at the next table over taking their order with our drinks on his tray. After dinner, our dirty plates stayed on the table for about ten minutes before being cleared. It appears there's nobody "in charge" at this place. Would not go back."

  • "Great dining experience. Great service staff and food. Food was fresh and flavorful. Staff was pleasant. My wife and I had a wonderful Anniversary dinner. The atmosphere, food and service was exceptional. If your business standards stay the way they are, I see this business thriving into the future."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The atmosphere is young and fun. On this particular visit we sampled a variety of appetizers. Would recommend everything we tried; bruschetta, calamari and the grilled artichoke. Service was fast and friendly and just the right amount of contact. The noise level always gets a little high as North fills up, but tolerable."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "First time....but won't be my last. Reservations on line. Most places ...nope! Food was awesome. Loved it. Olives were to die for!!"

  • "North just does most things well, and when that includes the food, it makes for a good place to have on your list of places to eat and enjoy."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Excellent food. Great Italian wine list. Friendly service."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "I was visiting Tucson for a long weekend and met friends there for dinner. The food was good and ample portions to share. The Molto Fresca drink I had was delicious. Sitting outside was very nice and not at all over crowded, so you didn't over hear others around you or the steet noise. I look forward to returning there on my next trip to Tucson and might try the Sunday brunch."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "When you first walk into North in Tucson, you're immediately taken by the clean decor and huge globes of lighting that hangs from the ceiling. Then you're immediately greeted by a hostess and taken to a table. The friendly waitress takes your order and now you can watch what goes on around you. Stacks of bread is sliced fresh and brought over, cured meats sliced from an old fashion hand cranked slicer, and an abundant of help just buzzing around doing their jobs with a smile and pep in their step. Food is brought over to the table and every bite is enjoyed. It tastes just as good as it looks! This place has a winning combination of great food, service and comfortable setting. Loved it!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My husband and I always love to go to north for special occasions. The food is terrific, the service is terrific. We have been going for about seven years now. The menu has changed, and disappointingly they have discontinued some of our favorites; The chicken lasagna and the panna cotta. Nonetheless the menu that they do have is very good. The homemade pasta is delicious. They carry my favorite wine, the Snoqualmie Riesling. Great outside space as well. This will continue to be one of our favorite date night spots when we are in Tucson."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We went to North with a reservation for 7 pm. It was very crowded and noisy but we were seated right away. It took the waiter a bit to take drink orders then we waited an additional 15 minutes for the drinks to arrive, then another 10 for the appetizers (which were not hot). We put in our dinner orders but did not receive them for another hour and again, not hot. The food was delicious but it's just too disorganized. We did speak to the manager who comped a portion of the bill. We will not return for dinner."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our dinner and drinks at North. Great staff, spot on service.... Good food options. Be sure to try the zucchini chips."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The pasta dishes were terrific and service was very good. Kid friendly - our granddaughters were treated very well. Would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Came here with a few friends of mine before I left on a trip. It's a great, relaxed place to meet your friends and have some great food."

  • "The person whom took care of was amazing. She took care of all our needs before we knew our-self. Thanks Again"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Found the food and service very good but the noise level was terrible. Might be ok for the younger crowd but definately not the place to go for a nice quiet dinning experience."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The view rom the patio is stunning and with heat lamps it was great even in early March. The artichoke appetizer was amazing and the entrees our group had were delicious. Bring your friends here for great good and a stunning view."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We are here for the winter, but we hadn't had a chance to try North yet. This past week we had visitors here for a few days, so we decided to try a new place. We really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was great and the wait staff was very helpful We would highly recommend this place to anyone."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food items that we ordered. The only negative was the inside seating area has nothing that reduces the noise that is created by all the diners. We had to move to the outside seating area so we could talk to one another."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "This is my second time at the restaurant. It is a mandatory stop for dinner when I am in Tucson!"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Food, presentation and service are outstanding. Ask for Ryan. He is knowledgable, professional and friendly. The pastas and bread are freshly made on site. The prices and serving sizes are moderate and on the mark."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Restaurant has a lovely outdoor area. However, I made a reservation on-line, as there appears to be no phone number listed. When we arrived I asked for out door seating. Although it appeared there was plenty of seating outside they seemed hesitant to seat us. I explained that we had booked on-line and there was no place to specify and no phone number listed. Staff apparently did not know this and was helpful in trying to accommodate us. Wait staff did a wonderful job and we had a relaxing lunch with delicious food. I was given a card when we left and would definitely reserve by phone for another time. The flowers, comfortable seating, and view (which is also spectacular at sunset) all contribute to the experience."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "I have dined at North many times before in which case i have been seated late, which has been fine, but the servers were very nice, respectful, and even continously apologized for the wait.. also they provided us with a free dessert because were sat so late. Last weekend though, i made a reservation for 8:30 in which i wasnt sat till 9:15... the hostess were awfully rude and did not seem to care at all. after i was sat so late with my party, the server didnt apologize at all and though he did get our food out at a reasonable time, it was almost like we were rushed.. a very different experience than i normally have at north. is it a completely new staff?"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "I have been to North before. This night however, the service and server was lacking. The food was good. But it seemed like they couldn't figure out who was waiting us. The food was hurried once the server came and took the order. It wouldn't stop me from going back but the service wasn't up to the usual. We seem to got lost in the schuffle and it made for less than a great dining experience."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Sangria was so refreshing. Combo appetizer board was incredible. Every main dish ordered was enjoyed to the last bit. Sauces were perfect, pasta al dente, fresh veggies and everything high quality. It is always a meal to remember and such a great view of the city."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The outdoor area is fabulous with beautiful flowers and great views. Food is good and Sunday happy hr all day is a great bargain."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Fun place to eat. Menu or waiter should specify whether wine is caraf or bottle before ordering."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Awesome place. Great food, fun atmosphere, very accommodating staff."

    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "My husband and i made reservations for Valentines day. The first impression was that it was a little two noisy for the occasion, but the the hostess offered us seating on the back patio. The back patio had a great ambeance. The lighting the noise level, and the space between the tables for that extra added privacy were absolutely perfect. The restaurant is versatile, whether you want to go in a group or a date. The food was absolutely amazing and the service followed suit. We would definately go again and recommend this place to others. GREAT JOB!!!!"

  • "Tremendous attention by Manager Vito. One of our company made a mistake in ordering salad, and the replacement was late arriving. Not only was the salad taken of our bill, Vito insisted that we order a desert. And this was for a mistake the WE made originally."
