I ordered a Tito’s/tonic and after squeezing my limes in it I tasted it and realized it had club soda. The waiter quickly took it to the bar and brought back a Tito’s tonic but it had the same squeezed limes. Not sure what happened but it left me wondering about what happened to that glass at the bar.

Restaurant was chaotic with no systems or mechanisms in place. Water was so far delayed it arrived with the food. Alcoholic beverages delivered and invoiced were incorrect... with us being billed for items we didn't order, receiving items we didn't order, and taking multiple attempts to get the right drink. Too many good places in town to bother with this chaos again, despite the nice atmosphere and good food. Also, they failed to check us in for our reservation... we had to ask twice to get open table credit.

Great food, great service. Nick was an excellent server. Good people watching. We eat here at least 2-3 times a month. Amazing calamari, bread with truffle butter, and excellent pastas.

Food is good , first time there , friends have been there . Very noisy , can’t really carry on conversation. Service could be better , servers need to listen .. instead of assuming. We told ours to split check then Check came as one check . SMH

We tried North Italia a few months back and I could not stop thinking about it. This second time around, we brought some friends with us and it was just as good as I remembered!! The food is AMAZING, the drinks are strong, and the service is incredible!! This is now one of my very favorite places and I will recommend it to everyone I know!

The food is great! the Iced Tea is phenomenal. We ordered 3 apps to share and requested the 3rd as our meal, but it all came out in exactly the reverse order of how we ordered it. That was the only disappointment. The Zucca chips are SO AMAZING!

I have always ordered the bolognese (which is very good), but decided I wanted something different; and our server Eric suggested the burrata tortellini, and it was fantastic! My rosemary and lime cocktail was outstanding (I always get it, too), but I didn’t get a different one - decided to stick with it. The Italian salad is quite good, too - my husband gets it usually. It’s always a treat to go to NORTH - never disappointing.

The food was good. The meatball pizza was very spicy. The short pasta was great. Even with a reservation, we still had to wait. They did give us free bread for our Wait. The bar staff was very good and fast. Our waiter was not very attentive.

We were celebrating a co workers birthday and we knew we couldn't go wrong with North Italia. Its always delicious, hot, fresh food. Our waiter John F was friendly and very helpful with giving us suggestions on what the specials of the day were. thank you once again for making this lunch amazing for not only the birthday boy but for everyone.

Don't recommend the gluten-free pizza crust -- you can't cut it, much less chew it! Great happy hour deals on food & wine.

There are a few superstars on the menu. The pizza is amazing. The diver’s scallops are my personal favorite. The drinks are great and there’s always plenty of parking too. It’s a pleasure dining here. I love the open kitchen design as well. My only complaint is that I wish it were a little more intimate and more quiet. It’s a little noisy and I couldn’t help being distracted by the family sitting next to us. Just too close together. Not a big problem, but for such nice food a little more elbow room would have been nice.

First, the service is always great! From the hostess to the waiter, my sister and I felt very attended to. We normally come in for brunch and the menu has a variety of options. Second, go ahead and add this spot to your brunch list!! Third, parking is convenient in the garage adjacent to the building.

Great service is the game here, consistent food, wonderful attention to detail in the presentation, superb in house made products!

North Italia should the standard other restaurants should emulate!

Also, whiteout a doubt - the best Pizza pie in town!

Oh yes, check out 1/2 price Bottle of wine day - what a deal excellent food and a good bottle :-)

Again the inconsistencies with food. Not sure what goes on in the kitchen but once again it was the Strozapretti that was disappointing. It used to come with a creamy parmesan sauce and now it just comes with parmesan mixed with water. I even asked for a side of the sauce and it was pure water. The others in my party had over Al dente pasta making it extremely chewy. I hope this place doesn't get worse after it gets bought out by Cheescake Factory.
