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.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday. They were so kind and generous. Love the service, the food was off the chart and it was just great

I have nothing bad to say. It was all fantastic. Reasonably priced for the quality of food and drink you're getting. They have an excellent happy hour. Thank you, guys. You did great!

Food was amazing .. my only negative is that they only serve one red wine for happy hour .. a Merlot .. where’s the Cab and/or Pinot noir ..

Way too noisy!! there was a table of young women who were shout singing and carrying on so loudly that it disturbed our ability to converse. The acoustics in the restaurant are such that it makes it very difficult for conversation as is and this noisy table could have been politely quieted if the management staff would have acted on it.

Everything was good, however although the waitress was efficient, she did nothing to make us feel like she wanted us there. The manager, Shane was great, the exact opposite of the waitress’s attitude

This was our first trip to North Italia and we definitely weren’t disappointed. We had reservation and arrived a little early but no problem seating us right away. It was a busy Saturday night and our server came right over and at least acknowledged us and said she’d be over shortly. When she came back we told her it was our first visit and she made recommendations based on what we like. Food came out pretty fast and is was all so delicious! The short rib radiator was amazing. Meat was so tender and very flavorful. Bolognese also quite tasty.

It was my sister’s bday and they offered free dessert. She picked their Pistachio cake but it came out a little dry. We didn’t want to complain as it was free but our server immediately told us she wanted to replace it so she brought the hazelnut torta which again was a crowd pleaser.

We had a wonderful experience and learned they will be opening a location in Gilbert so we will be counting down the days!!

They were a little off their game this last visit. Pizza was not crisp, cheese a little gluppy. Mussels not a great choice. Salad over-dressed. Frustrating, as I know they can do far better than this.

The food was very tasty, with a variety of entrees ordered by the three of us. Each of us was quite pleased with our selection (I had the delicious grilled bass.) The restaurant was very crowded- a special shoutout to our host who made a special effort to get us a table outside so that our conversation was much easier. It's great to be able to eat outside in November!

The fig and goat cheese pizza was rock star. The toppings were delicious but thrown on poorly. We redistributed them and the pizza was great. The arancini were very flavorful. My seasonal vegetable salad was good but too many bitter elements. There were 3 pieces of date which likely equaled one whole date which helped. I didnt eat it all. They forgot the white balsamic vinaigrette and the tablespoon she brought was not enough for the size of the salad. The hostesses were not friendly or helpful. The waitstaff was rushed and friendly. We waited 5 minutes for our first encounter with a server. She was given 3 tables at once. We had a reservation for 4 but got a table for two.

One of us received the wrong meal. The manager took that meal off the bill. So that made up for him having to wait,while we all ate.
I had to remind my server about my second glass of wine. And when my dinner coffee was served, she said she would be back with sugar and then forgot to bring it. I asked another server that walked by to bring me some,and they did right away.

We dine with North quite often. The food is always great. But we have come to accept that the service isn’t always the best. Most of the time it takes longer than most restaurants to receive our food.

The food quality is always top notch. So we will continue to come.

Food and Service was outstanding. They made our special occasion (anniversary) that much more special by how they treated us. Will definitely be going back. Only, and I mean only negative was the volume and style of music played. It was too loud and was not suitable for a restaurant.

It was a delightful evening. The food was amazing as was the service. I would have preferred a quiet spot tucked back in the corner. Instead we were front and center next to the working kitchen. Overall, the evening and experience was enjoyable.

It's a wonderful restaurant and a beautiful venue. Outdoors was lovely--hidden from the street by tall plants--wait staff, greeter, everyone was wonderful and the menu was varied and delish. Couldn't ask for a nicer place to have a lunch with dear friends.

Another excellent dinner here at North Italia. One of my favorite neighborhood places to eat at. The Burrata appetizer is my favorite followed by the Cesar Salad with Grilled Salmon on top. Moriah was our server tonight and she is the best. I always try to ask for her section when I eat here but all of the servers are great.

Great menu. Everything we ordered was great. Service was prompt & professional. One thing that struck us was all of the employees at all levels were smiling & seemed to be genuinely happy. Our waitress was exceptional. Sunday’s “all day happy hour” and 50% off on bottles of wine was a great surprise.

Food is always amazing, it's a little pricey, but worth the value. Wait staff is kind, the food is actually out pretty quickly. The Sunday all-day happy hour had some good deals on wine/apps. Highly recommend North

We went for Happy Hour on Friday night. The menu was awesome and so were the prices. We had the meatballs, yummy, margarita pizza and the chef's board. Everything we had was very good. We will be back again. We sat inside because there were no tables available outside. It was difficult to have a conversation.

I have become less and less enamored with Fox in the last couple of years. The wine lists at all of the restaurants are no longer enjoyable - the wines just are not very good and they are prices at about 4 times retail which is way too high for this type of restaurant. The food at North is ok, not great. The atmosphere is also just ok and way to cold inside and way to loud outside. Pretty big disappointment. There are other restaurants that now provide better value.

Had another great dinner here. Not only is the food excellent but so is the service. Tonight our server was exceptional and she went above and beyond. Moriah took great care of us tonight and I would request her next time I eat here, which will be soon.
