First timer here at North Italia, with the lady having her second visit. We were celebrating our anniversary. The food was phenomenal. Every single entree and appetizer was delicious. Heck they even offered to split our entrees in half which was incredibly thoughtful! The drinks and appetizer were promptly brought out and we went to work! We got the White Truffle Garlic Bread, Calamari, Zuchinni Chips, Braised Beef, and Squid Ink Pasta. Apart from the Milano Mule, I recommend everything else.
Sadly the evening turned kind of sour when our entrees took longer than expected to come out. We ordered an appetizer at the same time and it took nearly 30 minutes for the entree to follow. It wasn’t until the 20-25 minute mark did our server come and check on us to reassure our meals were on the way.
Fantastic restaurant, great ambiance, and exceptional food. Just wished the service was a little better. We will be returning and hope for a better experience! Overall I do recommend this place.
Went to celebrate my dad’s birthday. He had never been to North before and absolutely loved it! The patio has such a great atmosphere and every single person on staff is so friendly and accommodating! I can certainly recommend this place for any occasion!
Everything is made by hand, and that quality really shows. Delicious food and very cute outdoor dining areas
Despite being out in the parking lot in a tent the food and service is still great
The food is consistently very good, the calamari and prosciutto bruschetta are the best. Service is very good too.
North Italia is a perfect business lunch location. It is in Irvine near many businesses and other eating establishments. Always good service, quiet and good food.
Great food greater service!
Great service and wonderful food
Great service and food. One of my favorites.
Have always loved North Italia- menu is amazing and drink selection is so much fun. Offering outdoor and tented seating as accommodation. Will always return! Every pizza is great- pastas are shareable, sangrias never disappoint.
Service was great and food taste good. Good to dining out~~
D de amine is the bomb and the atmosphere is just spectacular.
Excellent service from Daryl.
Our meal was delicious and enjoyable.
We will be back again.
Good food and service but wish we could start dining inside again.
All went well. Reservation went great we were seated quickly.
Had reservations for patio, no problem checking in. Great service, staff was on us like bees to honey. Good food and service and awesome business lunch place.
It was my boyfriends birthday and they gave us just the right amount of privacy while still making sure our glasses were never empty :) thank you to our waitress Jennika for such a memorable evening!
The pizza was way too thin and crispy, not at all like “North Italia” pizza. The sauce was so salty it was inedible! Waitress started selling desserts when I was still eating. Not silverware on plate like literally putting food in my mouth.
Not going back!
The food was outstanding!
North Italia never disappoints! Great food, excellent service, and an overall great time. Love this restaurant!
We had a great experience. Our waiter was great, the manager came to introduce himself, and the food was great.
Great service, delicious food!
North Italia has saved our lives during this pandemic. Always friendly great food great accommodations.
The manager and staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable during Covid. Thank you!
Even though the covid restrictions don't allow inside eating right now, North Italia did a good job of keeping it toasty with heaters and creating a very pleasant environment. Service was great, food was phenomenal.
Nice outdoor dining, good food and service. Very good experience.
My husband and I split the chicken parmasan sandwich and the meatball sandwich at lunch. Both were excellent and, even though we each left most of our excellent potatoes on the plate, we ate only a small meal at dinner. We enjoyed our lunch tremendously.
My husband and Dad love Italian and they both loved their spaghetti and meatballs. My Mom and I shared the Chicken Parm and it was amazing but did not like the pasta it was served with and neither of us ate it, we would have prefered spaghetti with red sauce better.
North Italia is always a favorite for delicious Italian food. Can be a casual dinner or a fun, dressy date night.
I’ve enjoyed meals at NI in the past, but last night everything seemed rather under seasoned and blah. Had the spaghetti and meatballs, pizza of the day and a side of Brussels sprouts. They were great about COVID precautions, and very courteous when we asked to be moved away from a noisy child.
Great food. Service was excellent. Only thing was they sat us at a small table for two people. Which no problem but not all of our ordered dishes fit.
Hostess was amazing!!! She also recommended us trying to new pizza which was delicious!!!
Great birthday meal for our twin kids! Service was perfect, food was so delicious!!
Service was excellent and so was the food. I’ve had a great experience every time I eat here.
Excellent , our server was Gabriel , amazing service !
Food was excellent and service was attentive and prompt when needed but also took the hint when we wanted to be left alone :) They even helped us with options for the vegans in our party!
