The food was excellent, great service.
The restaurant was very loud because of the open seating arrangement. Was disappointed in the service and seating. The server was very nice and polite but didn’t offer bread, we had to ask, and had to be reminded to bring the grated cheese for our pasta. The menue didn’t list the type of pasta noodles for each dish. We ordered spaghetti with bolognese and it came with flat pasta when we were looking for spaghetti noodles. We were seated just across from the bar and the open side of the bar let in a stream of cold air to the point it was uncomfortable. The sauce and meatballs were excellent but didn’t make up for the service, the noise and seating.
Great ambiance, food and price. Unfortunately for an easy dinner, we felt the service (getting our food) was slow. Otherwise, it’s an excellent place for casual, business or special occasions dining!
North Italia always delivers. They are attentive to their customers and have fantastic Italian food.
My favorite Italian restaurant!
Kids friendly and tastes great!
really good place
Overall great experience. My Short Rib Radiatori came out slightly on the cold side. But I still ate the whole thing because it was delicious! It was my birthday so I enjoyed a Hazelnut Torta on the house which is literally the best dessert.
Over all experience was great! I'd definitely go back!
Terrible service. Food is amazing. It was very clear our waiter forgot to put our order in. Took 45 min to get our appetizer and main course, which were brought out at the same time. Salad was forgotten and we had them cancel it completely because there wasn’t room on the table. They were very apologetic, which we appreciated. But then it took about half an hour to track someone down for our check. Not a good experience.
I had an amazing time here! So glad I found this place online.
Had a 8:45 RSVP for two and waited for 45minutes. Was then seated right next to the door on a cold night. Although our server was very nice and friendly.
I was disappointed that we were seated outside in cold weather after having made a reservation days in advance. Typically I make a reservation to not only ensure a table, but also location. I wish the staff would have thought of this.
Otherwise, the food was great.
This was my 3rd time at North Italia, and will most likely to return. At least until I've tried every item on the menu. The service is prompt and friendly. I would recommend North for date night or business.
Inside was super noisy, as the main dining room is one giant hall, surrounded by glass walls, so we were really glad we were seated outside.
Food was very good, our server was very personable, but service was on the slow side, and hot things were warm and cold items not so cold when they ultimately arrived. This was after the lunch rush had started to taper off. Wine prices wee on the rather high side, beer not so much.
Parking was a zoo in the grossly overcrowded lot, valet parking only in the area of the restaurant.
Very noisy. Hard surfaces. Parking's impossible. Food was excellent.
It was good. Loved the food. Would definitely come again
Damn!!! Is this place loud!!
Great Italian food. Tyler is a great server that knows and explains the menu to make sure you are completely satisfied. It was our first time and we will be back.
My beef filet was way undercooked, ordered medium rare..
They were very busy so the service was lacking. We have them another try after the 1st visit being not so good. Our 1st visit the food was cold. This time the food was very hot but our server didn’t check on us. I had to keep asking other servers for refills and to order our dinner. Not sure how to feel about this restaurant. Angie (employee) reached out to us after our 1st experience and offered to make sure our next visit was better but I reached out to her twice to make a reservation and never heard back. Not sure if I will eat there again.
Food was exceptional. Noise level was higher than expected. Price point was a bit higher than expected.
Love their truffle garlic cheese bread and squid ink pasta!
And the corkage is reasonable
Appetite was served without serving utensils. We ordered 2 orders of the the muscle dish for appetite to share with the group: one did not have any sauce in it and very little pepperoni. The order had all the pepperoni, and some sauce. Usually there is plenty of sauce and that's what make the dish tasty. Very disappointed.
Awesome food at a reasonable price point! Loved our waiter, he did everything he could to make my mom’s birthday special (including a tiramisu!). Will come again for sure.
This was our 2nd visit to North and the first time, I loved it. This time, not as much. Our waiter seemed rude and a bit uninterested. We sat with empty water glasses, waited 20 just for our drinks to arrived, waited 10 minutes for the desert menu and just other little annoying things. As we were finishing our meal, someone turned on the TV which was literally in our face. The table next to us asked to have it turned off which we were thankful for. We were not sitting in the bar area but in the dining area and it seems weird to have a TV there.
The mushroom pasta was delicious and my husband enjoyed his mushroom pizza. We have reservations for Valentine's Day but wondering if I can talk my husband into going again.
The beat italian food, especially for the price, in the area.
The food took over an hour to arrive and was cold when it got there. This was our second time at the restaurant and both experiences were the same.
Phoned in to confirm dinner was for fiance's birthday. Receptionist answered and confirmed request.
Dinner was served and request was not fulfilled. Completely disappointed as how they could forget something like this.
Love there pizza. Great wines too. Our server was the best, so friendly.
Demetrio was The sweetest most amazing waiter. He made our lunch spectacular. I ordered the seasonal pizza which was amazing. Tiramisu as the desert is always a favorite
Great food and service. Will be back again.
Good food and attentive wait staff. Only negative is that we were seated at the farthest table at the kitchen exit door and next to wait staff work station. There were plenty of other seating options for a party of two so that was unfortunate as it certainly was distracting and affected our experience.
As always the best ! We come here for brunch lunch dinner and service is impeccable great creative food for the right price !!
Our server was extremely friendly. Our food was terrific. Unfortunately it took forever to get our food, but the manager comped us a round of drinks to make up for it.
The freshly squeezed orange juice was very refreshing. The portion sizes are pretty good and the food tastes great.
Freezing sitting next to the door. Only issue!
Date sucked but the food was good
Good food - came out efficiently and was hot. Minor quibbles: we were seated by the hostess stand so there was extra noise and the cool night breeze every time the door opened. Because of our seats the waiter was speaking to us from behind half our party so that was a little odd.
Our server was outstanding! Friendly, attentive and welcoming!
Food has gone down hill
