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!

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.

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.

Excellent food and atmosphere! The service was great except that we had to wait about 25 minutes between when our salad was served and when our entree was served. Think the kitchen was very busy w takeout orders as the restaurant was not all that busy later in the evening.

I went for my birthday dinner. I was treated so special with a birthday dessert and the sweetest server ! The food was amazing. One of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to. The staff was kind and fast, and the outdoor dining felt safe with proper covid precautions in place. I will be coming back :)

Terrific experience! This was our first time to North Italia.

Our server Gabriel Martinez was a difference-maker!....friendly, professional, attentive, and responsive. Provided excellent recommendations and every request was done timely. Can’t say enough about how amazing Gabriel was and the impact he had on our experience.

We will be back and will request Gabriel!
