North Italia – Denver
Book your next event with us
The food was delicious and our server was attentive and offered helpful selections about the menu. The burrata and heirloom tomato appetizer is something I’ll order again when I return!
Reliably excellent food. Our go to place when we don’t feel adventurous or can decide.
Brought a friend visiting from Washington D.C. for lunch. We had an enjoyable time, although it definitely got loud as it got busier. The food was yummy and service good. Only thing that wasn’t perfect was the bathroom cleanliness. The baskets mounted on the wall to hold extra toilet paper is a cute idea. But the metal pipe holding them was sooooo dusty. I would say at least a month since they’d been cleaned. Yuck.
Overall, it was a good experience and I would return.
The Radiatori is nothing less than sublime. I have eaten at North in Cherry Creek for at least 15 years and love it just as much as the first time I went there.
Our latest visit to North was very good, as usual. But this time the service was unusually slow.
We didn't order and small plates this time. Just a Margherita pizza & Bolognese, and few specialty cocktails and house wine. and we were seated very early for a Saturday night (@5:30).
Not sure if the Kitchen was slammed, of if the waiter just forgot to turn in our order in a timely manner.
All-in-All, the food was fantastic, but this night, a small glitch in the flow slowed the evening down.
We will be back.
We were surprised to find the restaurant almost half filled when we arrived for our 5:30pm reservation, even tho it was a Saturday evening. The ambiance was certainly “energetic”.
The Simple salad and the Caesar salad were a cool crispy way to start off a lovely dinner. Bolognese is a favorite of mine and it being a house specialty made my selection an easy one. I cannot recall ever tasting a more rich, flavorful, thick, robust bolognese. The house made tagliatelle lovingly wrapped itself in and around the meat and sauce making it the one I will compare all bolognese dishes to.
My husband ordered the chicken Parmesan. The chicken was wonderfully tender yet nicely crispy with the perfect amount of crushed tomato sauce on it. The mind blowing side dish was the house made rigatoni in Parmesan sauce, which made the chicken Parmesan even better than it actually was.
Even after all that, when I heard that the dessert was coconut pannacotta, I had to try it and I was glad I did. What an amazing, awesome, light dessert I would love to have again
We were disappointed with our dinner at North Italia. We basically felt like our dinner was rushed and there was an emphasis on turning tables as quickly as possible. The food was also mediocre. The Caesar salad had radicchio in it which made it very bitter and overpowered the dressing. The pasta came out very al dente, to the point where it tasted like it should have been cooked a few more minutes. We will not return and would not recommend the restaurant to anyone.
service was the high point. Food was very tasty in this traditional I Italian restaurant. Convenient for visitors to the shopping mall and residents of nearby apartments. Definitely a mix of fashion from gym shorts and backward caps to Gucci and Channel dresses.
I loved the food - we got a grilled artichoke (really, an artichoke and a half!), bolognese and a scallop entree. All were amazing. Wine was good and it and the food were well priced and well portioned. Only downer was the dessert. We got the Italian donuts and they were... terrible. Not sure what happened there, but they were inedible. So - go for the food and wine, and stay away from the donuts.
A bit too loud but always delicious
Lovely complementary birthday dessert!
Artichokes were not done
Such yummy food! All the staff members were wonderful.
we will go back, all food was excellent. The extra bonus of 1/2 price bottles of wine was great.
Authentic Italian! Delicious food with great service and a nice wine selection.
Great food, savory and refreshing drinks, and excellent service (thanks, Nick!).
Very good service, a bit expensive for lunch. Food was good!
This is our favorite restaurant in Denver (we live in Wyoming)! The food and the service are consistently excellent. One of our favorite things is the meatballs in both the appetizer and the spaghetti. We also love the zucca chips, the short rib pasta and everything else we have tried. We like sitting in the window tables because you get nice fresh air and also good people watching.
Very good as usual!
we go to North often. My husband and I split a kale salad with pancetta and split the meat lovers pizza . We love their pizzas but will not order the meat pizza again. It was unbelievably greasy (although was very tasty). Can't wait to go back
My meal was delicious and so I enjoyed myself.
Always a wonderful experience at North. I work nearby and it's my favorite spot for lunch or dinner. Thanks for the excellent service!
A nice place with good food and service. Glass and low ceilings amplify the sound of screaming kids though.
One of my favorite restaurants but tonight was a let-down.
Bolognese is outstanding as is the grilled bread! The olive oil with the sweet balsamic made it.
Serivice was exceptional, food very good. We sat on the patio and that was fabulous. Would recommend to others.
Kitchen was a bit off. Salad overdressed, dessert took forever.
Creative dishes and drinks, all very good. Dirty almond chai- fantastic! Great for date night or good for weekend brunch w kids - they have a good kids menu as well.
Outstanding as usual. Great food, excellent service and fantastic environment!
Great food and great service!
Amazing as always!
The food is absolutely amazing and good quality. The ambiance and just right for any occasion. I like the different menu options and they are pet friendly.
Quality of service was terrible. Dinner table reservation was late and then service was bad - food delayed and mine was cold. They knew it was a special occasion and still managed to perform poorly. they tried to make it up with free entrees by the end but while the gesture was appreciated, that is not the point.
Loved the kale salad with salmon. Both pasta dishes were delicious. We also liked the open airiness of the restaurant.
Brent our server was fantastic and would go back not only for the food and atmosphere, but also the service.
FANTASTIÇ Food for a GREAT price... North Italia is our families favorite "go to" spot in Denver (we live in Evergreen)... We are NEVER disappointed! Thank you North Italia for another wonderful meal for my Birthday Celebration
It took more than 45 minutes to get our food. This would have been tolerable, stuff happens, but the server never said anything. Finally, we asked the manager and she said it was because they burned my daughters grilled cheese. That seems strange for a high-end restaurant. By the time our food arrived, my young kids were done sitting patiently so we had to box it up and go. The server never apologized or even offered to comp the grilled cheese. This used to be my husbands favorite restaurant, but we won’t be going back.
Wonderful flavors and textures. The funghi pizza was killer and the cocktails were smokin!
My friends and I had never been to North before, but decided to try it to celebrate our birthdays. We chose to sit outside in order to be able to hear each other better, because the inside noise level was quite high. It was a lovely evening and outside was perfect for us. We absolutely loved our meals and our time at your restaurant and definitely plan to come again. The food was high quality, perfectly prepared and healthy! Our waiter was kind, accommodating and patient! We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend North Italia to others! THANKS!
Excellent food, table was super tiny and we can easily hear other people’s conversations. Unfortunately our food came out wrong - specifically told our waiter my friend was allergic to mushrooms and when served she noticed dish came with excessive mushrooms ... could’ve end real bad; they were apologetic but there was no consideration for excessive waiting time. We were told they were going to make it up for us but sadly nothing.
Our food was absolutely excellent, which explains why they were packed on a Monday night! Service was great, too, and friendly, even though our server was clearly busy. We will be adding this to our normal rotation!
