I ordered the cavatelli with braised short rib and it was like soup? I don’t think it was meant to be that watery! Also my friend ordered the pizza and where the crust is normally beautiful the pizza was flat! Disappointed this time it was my friends birthday and this was a big disappointment!

Everything was outstanding. Mesa, of server was excellent. She was very knowledgeable of the menu and a great help to my wife who is GF. My only comment is that they should have some veal dishes on the menu. Can't seem to get a good Italian veal dish in AZ.

Not super kid friendly, but that’s okay.
Only complaint was severely dirty bathroom; really bad.. but maybe it was a one-off and I’ll still be retuning to north!

Havent been here in quite some time. Pandemic and all. But, when I asked my son where he wanted to go for dinner on his birthday he reminded me about North Italia and I thought it was a great idea. We both had the scallops and risotto, shared a bottle of wine and had dessert. It was a perfectly prepared dinner. When the check arrived I was shocked. The total for the evening was beyond reasonable. I’m a fan and will be back soon.

Five of us each had a wonderful dining experience. The calamari had a little different flavor than the usual and was quickly devoured. The other small plate was the grilled bread which was wonderfully crisp with a topping that made it very rich. Bolognese was ordered by 2 and neither could finish. It was perfectly cooked with a sauce that was much lighter than others. The salmon and diver scallops were likewise cooked perfectly and the fifth person had the Seasonal Vegetable Salad with grilled chicken. It was an explosion of wonderful ingredients and flavors. Gelato and sorbet were wonderful ways to finish the meal. The service was not rushed and very attentive. Valet parking is available.

Very disappointed with the quality of the food and overall experience. Saying that I want to credit to the server who seemed new, but tried to do her best in spite of everything else. I will probably not return but do encourage management to take a hard look at how things are running here. Best of luck!

Great for family and friends, food was great. Just felt a little uncomfortable as we arrived at several homeless individuals who were showering at the entrance, and then coming in/out of the restaurant on Father's day to use the bathroom(s), definitely not how I wanted my family to remember this experience since I booked in advance.

We have made changes since that day to no longer allow people to use our restrooms that are not our guests.

Had the usual great service and our chef's board and bombolonis were awesome but the bolognese was off. It is always so delish but tonight the sauce tasted overcooked like the meat or the tomatoes were charred or burnt in the process which made for a very deep red color to the sauce with darks spots that tasted like something was overdone. Anyway the overall experience was fun and I will still come again.

Really great experience overall. The staff was exceptionally friendly, from the parking and front door greeting, all the way through the meal with the server. The level of detailed cleanliness throughout the restaurant was impressive. Every window looked like they were just professionally cleaned that day. I noticed cleaning/sanitizing performed by the staff, with tables that just had customers who finished their meals, to a level that I have never seen before. Never have I witnessed service where wiping entire chair and legs along with the table legs as being a standard cleaning practice throughout the shift... literally wiping every chair leg and table leg. Not ever working in this industry, I would have thought/hoped that this level of detail would have been completed possibly on a weekly basis or twice weekly? This level of detail was performed multiple times/consistently throughout the shift. The food was very good and at a great price point for the overall experience. We were in the area this particular evening and luckily came across this restaurant, unfortunately we live over 40 miles away and will only be able to make this a possible monthly stop as opposed to weekly.

We were allowed to wait at the bar without ordering anything. Once we got to our table it was a bit too cold. There was also a confusion because we already had waters whether or not we had a server. The food was pretty good though we would have liked to start with complimentary hot bread.
