I got a reservation at North Italia very last minute when I was looking for a new Italian restaurant to try. I have to say that this was one of my favorite experiences at any restaurant, period. The atmosphere and style of the restaurant were absolutely wonderful and my waiter was friendly and fantastic (I, unfortunately, cannot remember his name at the moment). I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family in the future.

I have gone to North Italia a number of times. What prevents me from going any more often is the crowded wait times and noise level inside the restaurant. This visit, I decided to sit in the outdoor area which is MUCH more quiet than inside the restaurant. It's nice to have a lively atmosphere inside a restaurant, but there comes a point where the lively becomes way too loud and becomes something to be endured. I ordered my usual appetizer (grilled cauliflower) which was as usual. I tried something different from my usual short ribs: grilled salmon. The staff was accommodating and respecting my wish to keep my carb intake to a minimum, the pasta/grain portion of the dish was substituted with broccolini. The grilled salmon was very beautifully presented. It was a tad dry around the edges of the salmon filet, but the sauce rescued the dish.

I look forward to cooler and less humid weather to make sitting outside even better.

Usually it is very good but I don’t know what happened last Sunday, the food was a disaster. I hope that everything will be as before.

Our server Taylor was outstanding. One of our appetizers came out very late, manager delivered and apologized along with comping. Was extremely loud inside, recommend sitting outside if you want to have conversation.

Felt like the Charcuterie platter was lacking in many ways. Meats were great, but one cheese that wasn't fresh and in the right temp. This item is pricey and needs work!

Food was amazing.. very good quality. Noise was high, a bit loud. Entrees took a bit longer than expected, manager did come out to talk to us and let us know it would be out shortly.

Set in a beautiful space, this restaurant provides a lively atmosphere, particularly for a group. We particularly liked the open kitchen so that you can see all the food being prepared.

The service has gone down tremendously since they have gotten more popular. Our waiter charged the credit card double the correct amount with no apology. Then we told him at the beginning we were going to order a dish to go but we would order it once we were wrapping up, and he was like no, just tell me now, and I'll put it in later. So we thought, oh that's nice of him, cool, thanks. The to-go meal came out less than 5 minutes after we got our meals. Then once getting home, we realized the to-go meal was completely wrong.

Normally I love to eat here but this visit the restaurant really dropped the ball. The wait staff was inattentive, hanging out at the hostess stand. I had to repeatedly ask other wait staff for things like water refills. The artichoke was so undercooked that it was barely edible and the pasta, which is normally excellent and al dente was like chewing rubber. Hope my next visit is back up to par or it will definitely be my last visit.

Like always I enjoyed dining at North. The service was great and I was appreciative when the management made me a fresh small pizza because it was taken before I was finished. That’s exemplary service. I’ll continue dining here. Thanks.

It was very loud. It appears most diners come for pizza. I ordered chicken and my companions ordered pasta dishes. The table next to us came in after us and were almost finished with their meal by the time we received our food. The roasted chicken was more grilled/fried than roasted.
