First impressions are lasting impressions. I won't be returning to North Italia. If I wanted to be freezing in the damp air on the patio, I would have requested patio seating. The hostess just sat us on the patio without asking or informing us that's where we were going. It was Valentine's Day and I honestly wasn't dressed for dining outdoors as it was cold and rainy. Then our server was slow and inattentive. The food was mediocre with the exception of dessert. There was a huge chunk of lettuce on the bottom of my salad bowl. I was just disappointed with the entire experience.

A truly great meal. All the courses were original, well prepared and absolutely fresh. They definitely fit they're name. Lots of risotto and polenta, less on pasta. Nice change. Good but not deep Italian wines on menu with average to above average pricing. Server wasn't too sharp about wines but brought out a sample to allow us to decide. This is definitely a spot we'll be bringing our out of town guests.

The food was excellent. I had the scallops for my entree and they were delicious. I was very full when I left. I would recommend this restaurant.

Met a friend for an early dinner (1700). Got a nice table on the patio. Wasn't too crowded when we arrived but it picked up as the evening approached. We had good service and the food was great, as always at Fox Restaurants. We had a cocktail and shared a Crispy Calamari starter; delicious! Our friend had the roast chicken and my wife had the Bolognese with pasta and I had The Pig, a red sauce and meats pizza. We all traded tastes and agreed, the food here is great! We all had a bit to take home for leftovers the next day. Overall, a great time with great food. I love this place!

My Husband and I came here for a special occasion and we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. Both the waitress and manager went out of there way to make sure we had everything we needed. Wonderful service. They also had great recommendations throughout the meal and they were spot on. We had the Fried Risotto Balls, Pizza, and Salted Caramel Torta for dessert. Perfect meal for two and everything tasted amazing! We will definitely be back for another date night.

The short rib is always super tasty here. It's just fancy enough to be special, but I'd go more often if I could. The inside can be a little loud when it gets busy, but we were a table of 6 and were all able to hear each other chat. If you're more than 6, you might want to ask to sit outside.

I had been meaning to try North Italia for a while, even though I don't usually like chain restaurants. The menu looked good, so I decided to go there with a friend for a late dinner on a Monday night. We sat on the patio, which was very pleasant.

Service was friendly and prompt. My friend and I decided to split three appetizers and a salad, which was plenty for us. I would especially recommend the arugula salad and the mussels (which had fabulous broth to dip bread in). The meatballs were also tasty, and the grilled artichoke was good but kind of hard to eat.

My experience was good however since it’s an open kitchen the crew in the kitchen have to be careful about conversation because one of the crew was using profanity which we can hear during our meal which wasn’t very professional

We LOVE North! Consistently delicious and the service is above the rest! Thank you for the great food and dynamic wait staff. We appreciate having this option in our city. It's truly our favorite restaurant! We always reserve through Open Table and the restaurant has always accommodated our seating requests.

First time. Was crowded and very noisy. Asked to sit on covered patio to have more comfortable space and have a conversation. Was cold out but heaters and open fire made it fine.
The tables are way to close together. Not sure you can do anything about noise level.
Food was fantastic! Service excellent.

Disappointed that we had to wait 20 minutes for a table even with a reservation. Service was slow. Took way too long to get a drink after seated. Our waiter was apologetic about how slow the bar was. Waiter was also nice and knowledgeable about menu and made great suggestions. Food was great.

North Italia was recommended by our niece and her husband when we visited Phoenix from Michigan. I have to eat gluten free and our server, Holland, made sure that our choices met this requirement. The food was the best we had on the trip. The service was also great. Never did we have to ask for water fill ups or any or anything. Holland made it seem like we were her only table.
We highly recommend North Italia as a most do when in the Phoenix area.

Love to meet up with friends at North. It is right in the neighborhood, fun and the food is consistently delish. This was a double birthday celebration and we enjoyed it very much. I have taken clients to North for their special occasions and had a casual lunch or two there as well. I highly recommend it for the fun atmosphere and the great food.
