North Italia – Arcadia Ratings and Reviews
Everything was so good at North Italia. Our waiter (Robert) was fantastic - suggested a couple of appetizers - the zucca chips and the white truffle garlic bread were AMAZING! The prosciutto pizza was also perfect - fresh ingredients and not heavy or too filling. My sister and I were visiting the Phoenix area and this charming restaurant was hands-down the best meal during our visit. Again, Robert was a great waiter. He was attentive and friendly and we didn't feel pressured or rushed through our meal. He even took the time to tell us about the North Italia restaurants now in Texas - looking forward to getting the zucca chips when we get back home.
The food was very tasty but the service wasn’t all that great. It wasn’t as if the restaurant was slammed. There were plenty of empty tables but we had to ask for beverage refills and when we placed food orders the server forgot to bring requested items so we had to ask again for things that should be an automatic accompaniment. The server was preoccupied talking to other staff and we had to wave him down.
Food was fine, service was poor. Waited over an hour between ordering and entrees to be served with no bread or appetizers brought out. Kids at the table were served within 10 minutes (which was great), but that created an issue after they finished and everyone else waited an hour for food. Probably an isolated incident, but something to keep an eye on if you eat here with a group.
North is my favorite and my go to restaurant. We sat on the patio by choice and the birds in the adjacent trees were really really chirping loud for over an hour. Our server said they know its an annoyance. Never experienced that before!! overall I love the food. I also think we had 2 newbie servers, that didnt have knowledge of what they were serving on chefs board. Our food was delayed they gave us dessert gratis. A bit of a hiccup but wont deter me from returning.
We have been to North several times and the noise level is just too high for us. Normally we dine on the patio but, believe it or not, they are having trouble with birds in there giant screening trees out front!
The hostess apologized for their noise (it sounds like thousands of birds!). Hopefully if you dine late, they should be quiet. The food is quite good, as is the service.
I would have given 5 stars, the the wait staff was not very attentive, and a bit ditsy. Also, I got there early, and the hostess was on the phone, so a server sat me, I asked to 1- please check me in, so I dont show as a no-show to Open Table, She didn't, and 2- I got there prior to my friend, and asked her to please make sure she brings her to the table, She didn't. Instead she sat her at
a high top, and it was 15 minutes later before we connected. A little upset that the points were not added, but other than that, food was good.
Did not know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. It's a small place, but it has a good vibe to it. The food was great! Reasonable prices. Like the decor. They have complimentary parking which is nice. Great Italian food, will be coming back again.
Wee always enjoy the food at North. My husband and I had Caesar Salad which was tasty.
Next we shared the chicken over grilled vegetables and the strozzapretti pasta. They we both excellent. We find North to be a good value with great service and terrific food.
