North Italia does a great job with COVID protections. Lot's of outside seating. Staff wearing masks and being careful. We enjoyed wonderful food in great atmosphere.
Food was great. Service was excellent. Wonderful evening out with friends.
Prompt service and tasty food. Courteous and friendly employees.
Nice place. Get the pig pizza.
Delicious food, great service! It’s the best, most authentic Italian food I’ve ever had! It’s absolutely amazing and you can’t beat the prices!
Our waiter “Gabriel” was so accommodating, and super friendly! He made my daughter’s birthday dinner a great experience and so enjoyable!
My visits to North Italia are always great. Good service, great food even better cocktails! Had a late reservation at 8:30 and arrived at 7 and would have gotten sat right away but we chose to sit at the bar. Drink orders were taken immediately. The food was delicious as always. Night capped it was a type of espresso chai martini the bartender created and two different desserts cause I can never choose. Shocked the bill wasn’t more than it was!
I used to love the food it. It was inventive and amazing quality. Seems to have gone wayyyy down hill. Wouldn’t go back
great atmosphere and vibe
We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and although we've been to North Italia before, we were up for trying some new dishes. Our server, Rick, provided some great recommendations. He was attentive and quick with service. Best server we've had at North Italia.
such a great experience eating here! love the food!
I think it is a good idea to share.. we ordered pizza, pasta and a salad. It was all wonderful.
The best birthday dinner i had in a while. Food was so good, i cant even begin to describe it. Service was great, friendly, and on top of everything. 10/10 do recommend.
Tables outside were not "socially distant" and less than 6 ft. apart which made us very uncomfortable. Food was only ok... one entree was overly salted and the other, not the ingredient as stated on menu! This was our first COVID meal out and we were disappointed because food used to be SO good.
This has quickly become one of my favorite spots! Everything is delicious! I really love the meatball and polenta appetizer!!
Terrible service, unfortunately it took 15 min to order an iced tea, another 10 min to get it with no ice. Then finally 25 min later a simple pasta sauce order arrived and was cold.
I don't georgedyer this place, its crazy expensive for 10 oz of pasta for over $20 and awful service - why does anyone goto this place?
Food was very average. I got the Pig Pizza and the Squid Ink Pasta. The pasta was something I could've made myself with Costco ingredients and it was bland. The pizza was good though, but it is still pizza. The servers were nice, but were not attentive. Ambience is nice and it is a great date night location, but not the food.
Had a wonderful lunch. Food preparation may not be fancy, but the taste is flavorful, unique, and delicious. The homemade pasta is fantastic. Server was pleasant and attentive, without being overbearing.
Great food, great wine, great ambience and worth every penny!
Highly recommend! I’m looking forward to visiting again.
Everything was good and we had fun eating out after many months.
Pretty bad actually I definitely will not be going back
Everything was average but two of us got the Bolognese dish was REALLY not good and was, according to the menu, one of their specialties. It was soupy, little flavor and hardly any meat. Wish them the best but not going back.
I love this place but my experience this time wasn’t the best unfortunately. I stated on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday but it wasn’t acknowledged. I asked if we could order off the lunch menu but was told it was only the brunch menu but then I saw someone order a pizza at another table. I was disappointed but the food was really good per usual but I wanted to eat pizza.
Much better than our first experience in Santa Monica. The food was great, the outside seating was nice, service was excellent. Overall a great experience!
A delightful dinner, nicely served, with proper attention to cleaning and distancing.
the young lady who greets you when you check is not very personable.
The food and service are always amazing. Wonderful every time.
Given a high top table, servers seemed confused bringing out dishes in the wrong order, then doubling up - bringing two of the same items.
I've been to the one in Las Vegas which was much better run.
The evening was very nice. And the whole thing came together due to our server Gabriel. He was very friendly, knowledgable, menu recomendationss were spot on and he has a keen sence of how long to stay and talk with us. Perfect dinner with the wife. Thanks Gabriel
It was pretty pleasant experience eating there despite of COVID-19.
Loveeeeeed our service. Lauren was amazing, took incredible care of us, and made my best friends birthday special!!!!! Food is always amazing and desserts even more so!!! 💕
Our party was seated right away and the service was perfect. We did a chefs board paired with a fantastic bottle of wine. Food came out quick and delicious. Great place for any occasion!
Love North Italia!!!! Atmosphere is nice, food is delicious!
Was visiting from chicago and everything from the service to the food was amazing! Waiter had great choices on food and wine. I really loved the atmosphere outside and my experience!
Just a wonderful evening! Perfect wine pairing, outstanding food! Monica was a phenomenal waitperson! She certainly knows the menu and the wines, and was a great conversationalist!
