    Food and service were very good! The chicken parm, which was described as “huge” was actually VERY small and although it was very tasty, it was a super small portion for the price! Drinks were very good…..Noise level was HIGH and it was hard to hear the people I was with.

    INCREDIBLY slow service throughout the entire night, not even a full restaurant. We were sat over 20 minutes after our pre-arranged reservation time. Appetizer came out cold and over 20 minutes after we ordered. Manager offered to "take care of it" and then it was still on the bill, so we had to ask for it to be taken off. Dinner dishes were more timely. Server really did not try to make up for any of the issues. Drinks were also slow...overall a less than average experience for a Tuesday evening.

    Fantastic lunch and brunch spot (dinner too). Great service, great cocktails, pasta is always fresh and flavors are dynamite! Grilled bread to start is always a must, salads are hearty and pasta dishes feel light but full of flavor. Definitely recommend a reservation on the wknd as it fills up quickly.

    Little Gem Caesar salad was very good. The Spicy Rigatoni Vodka pasta was as good as anything I've had. And the special dessert carrot cake topped with cream cheese, sauce and walnuts was a perfect way to end a great meal. Server was top notch. Only negative is parking in Cherry Creek - gave up trying to park on the street and just parked in the mall where the danger is walking through Nordstrom and having the ladies avoid filling an already packed closet with shoes.

    Always a pleasure coming here and the food is excellent. Service is quite good. We come here almost every time we’re in Denver. My only comment is the menu descriptions aren’t always consistent with what you get. Example: crispy eggplant appetizer-nothing crispy about it, though very good. Will continue to frequent this restaurant.

    The table in the bar area was covered with dirty plates for the 20 minutes I waited. The staff just ignored it and were visiting with each other like patrons at a party. I walked out after I sat unhelped at my table. Super weird experience.

    North Italia is a chic restaurant in the middle of Cherry Creek North. The food is authentically delicious and the service is fantastic. The restaurant is popular, crowded and loud with lots of energy. Lately, they have overbooked and it takes a while to get seated with Reservations.

    The food was prepared very poorly. The Pizza was bland and undercooked. One member of the party had a salad, Italian Farm. It was way too salty and the vinaigrette was overpowering. The Spicy Italian Grinder sandwich was ok, but the fires were terrible. They were mealy and wimpy. Not even edible. This was most disappointing as we often enjoy a casual meal at North Italia. I will think twice before returning. There are other fine restaurants in the area that have alway been consistent.

    This was our first visit to North Italia - but it definitely won't be our last. From our delightful and excellent server Kellie to the wonderful manager Thomas, our experience at NI was simple exceptional. And the food...best Italian we've had in years. Here's the breakdown: --Calamari Fritti: Although I prefer rings and tentacles over rings by themselves, the calamari (rings) were tender and delicious. That said, my only criticism of our entire meal revolves around this dish. I would like to have seen a lighter batter consisting of just flour, as opposed the heavier flour and egg batter they used. Still, the rings were extremely tender and the accompaniments were spot on. --Wild Shrimp Scampi (appetizer): Five plump shrimp cooked to perfection in a classic and delicious scampi butter. The garlic confit, charred lemon, and grilled bread elevated this dish to new heights. Simply excellent. --Tagliatelle Bolognese: House-made pasta with a delectable, classic meat sauce. Wonderful. --Funghi Pizza: One of the best pizzas we've tasted anywhere. Perfect crust (almost a cross between Neapolitan AND Roman), with just a touch of truffle oil. Absolutely delicious. And don't get me started on the scrumptious Red-Velvet Cake/ Gelato dessert! This was simply one of the best experiences we've had in a restaurant in ages. Thank you to Kellie (server) and Thomas (manager) for making this a memorable and wonderful experience. We can't wait to return.
