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!
Hi Marnie, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry your experience did not meet expectations. We would love the chance to make this right. Please call us and ask to speak with a manager. Thanks!
Our server was amazing, food was amazing, North is still one of our all time favorites!
Wonderful to hear! Thank you. We hop to see you again soon.
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.
Thank you for the wonderful review. We are so happy that Mesa took great care of you! Thank you for the feedback for a Veal dish on our menu. We will let our executive chef team know. We hope to see you again soon.
My girlfriend and I had an amazing night here. Everything we ordered was outstanding and the service matched!
Thank you for the wonderful feedback! We are glad you had a wonderful evening. We hope to serve you again soon!
My short rib dinner was tasty, delicious. My waiter recommended a red wine that went perfectly with my dinner.
Thank you! That's what we love to hear. We hope to see you again soon.
Always great food at north! Such a cute spot.
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!
Thank you very much for your feedback. We take pride in cleanliness and are so sorry that we missed this. We will address the issue. We hope to see you again soon!
Great food and service!!
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.
Thank you for your fantastic review! We are so happy to have you back, we hope to see you again very 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.
Thank you for your wonderful feedback! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Ambience and food were good, but the service was horrible. The host moved so slow and didn’t seem at all concerned in getting you a table timely even though restaurant was not busy.
Hi Kim. We are sorry to hear about your experience. Thank you for the feedback, we would love to hear more. Please feel free to reach out to a manager anytime or send us a message.
Our waitress and their staff were amazing! The food is always so delicious and one of our favorite places for an amazing meal. Their pasta is homemade, so good luck finding that just anywhere.
Hi Paul. Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback. We hope to see you again soon!
Mesa was an amazing server.....very professional and kind.
MY ONLY issue was getting to the location......the Restaurant sign is COMPLETLY BLOCKED by the trees/shrubs. WHY would they NOT trim back the brush so people could find them?????
Hi Renee, We are so glad that you had a wonderful experience! Thank you for the feedback with the trees. We will look into that. Have a wonderful day.
Decent spot and service, but not a lot of options for plant-based dining. Definitely check the menu and reserve your table.
Thank you for the feedback. We are always happy to accommodate any dietary needs as best as we can. Ask your server or a manager for some off menu ideas that can be made plant based.
Celebrating our 32nd anniversary, we really were looking for a great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening. Well done North Italia! From service to drinks to the amazing food. Absolutely delicious!
Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We appreciate you celebrating your special day with us. Happy Anniversary!
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!
Thank you for your feedback. We would love to hear more about what went wrong and how we can improve. Your opinion is valuable to us and we would love to hear more and see if we can invite you back in for a better experience. Please call us and ask to speak with a manager.
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.
Thank you very much for your feedback. We apologize that you felt uncomfortable. We are doing our best to deal with the challenges we have going on in the front of our restaurant and are intently trying to solve that issue. We have made changes since that day to no longer allow people to use our restrooms that are not our guests.
We had out fathers day brunch celebration. As usual it was a fantastic time. Our server Janelle, was amazing. This is our favorite location.
Thank you for your wonderful feedback and celebrating with us! We hope to see you again soon.
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.
Thank you for the feedback! We appreciate your insight into the Bolognese and apologize that you did not enjoy the dish. We would love to make it right for you. Feel free to reach out to a manager anytime or ask to speak with a manager the next time you are in the restaurant.
Solid great food and service.
A go to for great pasta and Italian style cocktails. My fav is the bolognese and they do a great chicken parm. Brunch is very good too.
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.
Hi Scot, Thank you for all of the wonderful feedback! We are excited to share this review with the team. We take pride in what we do all the way from the cleaning, to the food and to our service. We are so happy that you noticed all the time and love we put into this place. We hope to see you again soon! Please say hi to a manager next time you come in, we would love to meet you.
Love love love North! The food is excellent, ambiance is great, service is always good.
Creative dishes well prepared and presented in a clean casual atmosphere. The service was outstanding other than self parking was non-existent... so valet parking only.
Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you again soon!

We had a party of 5 with a reservation. Our table was waiting for us. Ordered a variety of dishes, appetizers and cocktails. Every thing was delicious. Service was top notch. Looking forward to returning
Hi Vanessa, Thank you for the wonderful review. We are so glad that you celebrated with us! We hope to see you again soon.
The food was amazing and service was great. Looking forward to coming back soon!
Wonderful to hear! Thank you! We hope to see you soon.
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.
Sorry to hear about the confusing start to your experience. We are so grateful for your feedback. We would love to see you again soon to get off to a better start to your dining experience.
Great food. Love that it's an open kitchen. Staff is incredibly nice and professional.
Thank you for your wonderful review! We hope to see you again soon!
