Enjoyed our meal. Excellent service. Our server suggested a vegetarian alternative to one of the dishes my wife loves which made it healthier. She enjoyed that more than the traditional menu item and will be getting it again when we take friends there in a couple of weeks!

We were seated in a very dark corner where it was nearly impossible to read the menu. Also, there is very little air circulation in this corner, so even though it was a cool night, much of the warm air from the kitchen seemed to get trapped in this corner, and about halfway through our visit, it was becoming uncomfortable being seated in this corner. Otherwise, the service, food, and value were good.

Great fresh Italian. My boyfriend and I shared the garlic bread and he had the Bolognese, I had the spaghetti and meatballs. Our server was great and explained that everything was made when we told her this was our first time dining in. Complimentary valet service when we went as well. Over all great place, especially for those Italian lovers!! Highly recommend.

It was really good.
We were settled out on the patio. The plastic walls in place were short in reaching the floors and short in reaching the posts. The open spaces let in a seriously cold draft. Both women at the table legs were frozen and the seats were metal and very cold the entire meal. The heaters above our heads were on so that was nice. Every other heater above head was on, but I don’t think the the Women’s legs would have been warm even if they were all on.
The food is always great! The desserts even better. Chocolate cake was over cooked for the first time ever.
We love North!

Took over 30min to get our initial drink order. The restaurant was not ready for the busy night. Not the usual experience I normally receive

Food was very good but I don’t think you get enough food for how much you pay. I left not full after eating the tortelloni.

Food was outstanding. Our apps, wine, entrees were delicious. However, my girlfriend and I were bummed in the dessert. We ordered the hazelnut cake and it was room temperature/cold, most of the time deserts like that are tossed in the oven right before they are served so that’s what we were expecting. I also ordered an Amaretto sour for an after dinner drink, and the lemon juice tasted very tart like it was a little old. Our sever, Kevin, made great suggestions and made sure we were taken care of. Overall a great dinner. Just a few tweaks away from perfect.

Great Food and Service at fair prices. We have always had a good experience here as well as at the Kierland location. The wait staff is always helpful and even if you have diet restrictions there is no problem. Very accommodating!

We started with the Chef's board and the Arancini, which was excellent. The pasta dishes were amazing. Everyone tried a different plate and then each others because the presentation was very enticing. A nice touch to the menu is the calorie count. I'd say it was pretty close. My dish was 750 calories, which made it easy to have dessert. We chose the Hazelnut Torta and the Tiramisu. I'd say they are my favorites. But there are many more items to try as well as coffees and after dinner drinks.
This is a great place for good italian food.

Always enjoyable. The valet is so unnecessary though. Everything else is great. We always get the prosciutto and fig pizza and it was perfect as always.

Ephie our server was exceptional, this was our second time having her and she is such a joy making our evening so special! The pre set meal for NYE 2020 was amazing - there wasn’t one course where we were left hungry or disappointed- it was perfect!!! Best place to spend NYE- at our favorite restaurant.

I would go back because the food was great. The hostess was extremely rude and demeaning, the bartender ignored us and when I asked someone for help she rolled her eyes and acted like we were an inconvenience. Not warm or welcoming until we got our server. Truly disappointing service as soon as we got there.

Loved the calamari! Service was fine and the ambiance was nice enough. While it was pretty loud (voices and music) I had no problems hearing my friends speak. I had the bolognese, and it was ok. Reminded me of Olive Garden. The fried donut things were good, but really the calamari was my favorite.

Very loud! The food is American Italian at its best. I was pretty disappointed because I thought I was gonna be receive an authentic Italian food. It was very loud and the tables were tightly crunched together. Food was mediocre at its best. I’m a foodie and I really love authentic Italian cooking this certainly was not it

We live in the Arcadia area with an abundance of restaurants to choose from. Brunch at North is our #1 favorite. They make the perfect mimosa, mouth watering Short Rib Hash and the perfect doughnut to wrap things up. We are never disappointed.
