Amazing food, drinks and service, but was super loud (we had to talk loudly over music) and tables too close together for comfort.

Not bad for a chain restaurant but definitely upscale than an Olive Garden. Enjoyed the Meatballs, Italian Salad, Squid Ink Pasta, Spicy Vodka Rigatoni, Prosciutto and Funghi Pizzas. A side of Spicy Broccolini was too salty and indelible. But the pizzas were outstanding and saved the day. The dinner scene was very crowded and busy but service by our waitress Mayra outstanding even though she was handling large parties and fast turnover. Only bummer is their menu has no clams or mussels in any form for those that like their Vongole.

Although there were plenty of open tables, I was taken to the worst table in the house, right next to the kitchen. Had to be asked to move due to noise and strong garlic smell. The wait service after that was fine. Even though I was very pleasant when I arrived, I'd like to know why I was given the worst table which left a poor taste in my mouth. I will not be back, they lost a regular customer.

Our server did a great job. She even asked if my wife and I are gonna share food so when our order came, it was split into 2 beautifully presented plates.
The place is really full and there was a long wait outside so I’m really glad we made reservations using Open Table. Can’t wait to go back.

Sometimes you just need to graze.
We each got a salad and split the charcutier board. It was perfect. Service was on the spot.

We were a bit early from our reservation, but we’re quickly seated. Our server, Trevor (I believe his name was 😬) was very prompt in greeting us and promptly brought us our drink orders. It was my son’s 21st birthday and Trevor was exceptionally attentive. Food was great, a little chilly, but without any prompting from us, Trevor asked if we would like the heater turned on, which was greatly appreciated. I mean, if one can get half of the things I’ve mentioned when going out to dine, it would be great, but we all thought everything was pretty damn great. My only complaint would be… the olives in my martini’s are too small 😢 (just being nit picky at this point) otherwise, great job y’all!! I think we tipped Trevor high enough, at least we hoped?

We went there to celebrate my husband's bday with two little kids. Food was excellent and atmosphere is great. It is outdoor.. so we felt pretty safe during COVID. Food took a bit longer.. I think it was because there was a big group. However, it was totally worth it. We really had a great time.

Dinner was busy. Appetizers came out very quickly and soup followed shortly after with the salad. The entrée took good 30min after the salad to come out. Portions were moderate but the seasoning on the scallops were off. Some were salty and some were bland. Has great ambience but do not expect much when this place is packed.

This particular night, I made a reservation and was told that a large party took over the entire area where I wanted my table. Why make a reservation then? Plus, later the party was still going but the area where I wanted my table was diners not in the party. Then, I ordered my favorite drink, which is no longer on the menu. An entirely different drink was delivered to the table. Luckily, a wonderful waiter volunteered to remake the drink and did a fabulous job. It was extremely noisy and busy and not really accessible to conversation. Probably won't come back.

North Italia is my best friend’s favorite restaurant so we made a reservation to celebrate her birthday with friends at the El Segundo location. North Italia always does a great job service-wise but lately we’ve noticed that the food quality has gone down. We appreciate the small changes made to the menu every now & again, however- the quality of food should not change..

My family and I had an incredible evening at North Italia. Everyone was wonderful from the hostess to our waitress Gabriella…even the sweet girl helping out on the busy dinner shift after working in the morning was so helpful recommending bottles of wine and cocktails. I can’t say enough great things about this female staff.

The setting and overall experience at North Italia is always pleasant! The servers are kind and the food is solid and consistent and delicious! We just celebrated my birthday with a small group and the biggest negative was the slow bar. It took us over 20 minutes to get the first round of drinks to our table and after that, it was always a very long wait for the next round. A lot of tables around us were getting their drinks way quicker than us so not sure what the situation was but it was a little disappointing. Other than that, nice experience!

I love this resto. The food is good, service is great, the decor and design is quite inviting. There's always a buzz and humming of chatter, people laughing, celebrating, enjoying their time with family and friends. It's an all around great restaurant, and we love going there. I do suggest making reservations, as it is quite popular. This place is a no brainer for a good evening, with good food and great service.
