Overall a good experience. I was visiting Phoenix and arranged a business dinner. Our table was in a great location and although an energetic eatery, we were still able to talk and conduct business.

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.

 (Denver)·Dined on October 29, 2017

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.

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.

Our service, which is always great, was even better this time with Brie as our server ... even the valet parking (we require handicap) guys were super.
We had apps (small pizza, and cheese board) ... along with dinner, drinks, and desert ... and since it was a birthday, the restaurant comped the desert for him.
We had a lot of fun and great conversation ... this is one of our "goto" restaurants ... never disappoints

Always great food and excellent service! In the reservation notes, I indicated a member of the group was olive oil allergic. Upon being seated, the first thing the server asked was who the individual was so they could discuss menu options. Then the chef came out to also discuss the options. Very classy!
The signature cocktails are creative and worth a try for those that are more adventurous. And standard cocktails, wine, and beer are all good too.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. Parking is never a problem thanks to their valet. With nice weather, the patio seating is an excellent choice. The zucca chips, Strozzapreti pasta and Funghi pizza are our favorites. This visit the hours flew by as we enjoyed our friends, wine and food and the patio dining. This place is a gem!

Excellent food and exceptional service in a fun industrial setting. Sam Fox restaurants never disappoint. Although it was a very busy night we had no less than 2 managers and 3 servers check on our table to make sure we were being served attentively. Branzino and mussels are two of our favorite dishes that we order whenever we see them on the menu, and North Italia was among the best we've ever had for both. Highly recommended.

Great service, great food, excellent ambiance. I've been coming here for years and it has always been a favorite spot of mine in the Arcadia area. I've never had a bad experience at this restaurant. It is actually a place I always recommend to anyone looking for a great meal. The pasta's are fantastic and I love their meatballs. Their pizzas are the perfect size to share but not too large for one person, especially if you don't mind taking a carry out bag home with you! Also, a perfect menu if you are into sharing. The chefs board and an order of calamari make up a great, light meal for two.
