I have always loved North Italia but this trip was so much better then normal (normal has always meant exceptional). It was the first time I have brought my older kids to a very nice restaurant. They are picky and they loved it. The restaurant, the food, all of it. Our server Melissa C was sweet, personable, and very attentive to our needs as customers. It was my birthday and I even received a dessert on them with a card! Thank you for making my birthday a memorable family event. It was perfect!

We ate outside. North needs more fans for cooling the patio and repelling flies. We had non-stop flies during our entire lunch. Other than that, it was great.

For a large restaurant with multiple locations, North Italian is very good. Started with the heirloom tomato and burrata. Outstanding version. Then diver scallops, seasoned and seared to perfection. A little loud to be considered romantic, but still a great place for date night.

Inside was suuuper loud, noise wall hit us as soon as we walked in. They were thankfully accommodating to seating us outside and that helped the noise issue. Our waitress and the staff was fantastic and on top of things. The cocktails were really perfumey, and not very strong for the cost, the food was adequate, the homemade noodles are delicious, but nothing to write home about/that you couldn’t make yourself at home the same if not better. The branzino was really oily and under seasoned and we both needed to add salt to our dishes (I got the bolognese). Not the worst dining experience, just overall underwhelming.

Let me start by saying I love North Italia. When my mother offered to take me to lunch for my birthday, I was excited to suggest this restaurant. The food is always great, but our visit left a lot to be desired.

First, despite having a reservation, we were seated at a dirty table. The hostess apologized and wiped off noticeable food debris after we were seated. I specifically requested the patio because it’s usually offers a quieter ambiance compared to the bustle inside the restaurant and it’s also a fun location for people-watching. Unfortunately, on this visit, there was a lot of construction noise coming from the wall behind us. I can only surmise the business behind North was doing some reno on their side of the wall.

As expected, the food was terrific. We started with calamari and while my mother noted the absence of a dipping sauce, I’m okay with drizzle of lemon dressing it’s served with. We both ordered the arugula salad with salmon. The salmon at North is always prepared to perfection. A tangy and refreshing lemon sorbet closed out the meal. Although I noted on my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, no mention was made of it during our meal.

COVID has led restaurants to remove all condiments from the table, which required me to request pepper. When I did so, I was provided an empty mill and we had to flag down our waitperson to address the issue. Our server was otherwise cheerful and attentive, but seemed a bit too busy to be able to anticipate our needs.

Finally, I have to mention that the doors on the restrooms at North Italia should be replaced for privacy. They are stylish, frosted glass and allow for an unsuccessfully obscured view of the person inside. As I waited for my turn to enter one of only two (that’s right - 2 toilets for the whole restaurant) unisex chambers, I could easily view each person in embarrassing detail.

Overall, I still recommend North Italia; the food and ambiance are usually on point.

The wait staff was incredibly accommodating in letting us move to another table that was covered on the patio when there was a bit of rain. The restaurant was very busy and it did cause the service to be slow. The complimentary birthday dessert was a nice surprise. The Farrier's Market Board appetizer was a winner as was the Seasonal Vegetable salads. The added salmon was a nice lunch portion and cooked as ordered. The menu is somewhat limited but well priced and delicious. I would recommend.

We’ve enjoyed dining at North Italia - Domain many times in the past. However, our experience the evening of May 8, 2020, did not meet our usual expectations. I realize they are still dealing with Covid restrictions, and it was the day before Mother’s Day. Our reservation was for 4:45 p.m. we were 5 minutes early and were told that we’d have a short wait and an outside table, which is what we wanted. At 4:55 we inquired, and were seated at an interior table. Service was slower than what we usually experience at North. Our waiter did not ask if we wanted more Barolo wine, which was unusual.

We sat outside on a beautiful day, so noise was not an issue. Food was good, salmon was slightly overcooked, but still tasty. The three of us had different foods which were good. Service was good but a little slow.

All the food ordered arrived hot and tasty. Ordered the arancini, chicken parm, spaghetti, squid ink pasta, and bolognese. All were very good.

The arancini tasted like mushrooms (as expected) and was soft and cheesy.

Squid ink pasta has small shrimp and calamari. In mi opinion, there could have been more calamari. The black pasta was good.

Spaghetti in marinara and meatballs was very good. Sauce was very tasty and just right - not sweet (as in lots of added sugar).

The other meals were very good as our companions attested to.

They have a good beer and wine selection but do not have a sweet wine such as Asti spumante or asti Moscato.

Strongly recommend getting reservations.
