Book your next event with us
Need to book at 7:30 AM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Everything was amazing... food, service, wine, ambiance... Jen, our server was incredible! Loved my birthday celebration!
I really enjoyed my stay. We were celebrating for my Japanese friend who flew in and visited me in Irvine. The waitress was amazing and brought the best birthday desert I've seen since I've been coming to North Italia. I would definitely bring my friends/families back for any birthday or simply dinner.
Thank you for the waitress who served me and my friends that night.
Food was great. Service was good other than the bill taking too long to come out.
Came for an early lunch. Split the meatball appetizer, burrata appetizer, and prosciutto pizza.
All were delicious.
Great atmosphere and service!
We sat on the patio and the weather was beautiful. It is much quieter in this area if you want to chat. Food is alwas good.
Loud crowded and barley space between everyone they try to sit so many people that the table next to me can literally bump elbows with me All night
Really enjoyed the food, when it arrived. This restaurant really lacks communication among the host, wait and kitchen staff. While technology is great, the host staff lost our reservation after we had checked in 10 minutes prior to our reservation time. I won't be back anytime soon, as the management seemed to be non existent, and the staff lacks any kind of customer focus.
I always love going to dinner at North Italia. The food, service, and ambiance is always amazing.
Great valentines dinner!
Make sure to make a reservation, long lines otherwise. Luckily we did. Food was great and service was fantastic! Extremely noisy though. Overall, will definitely come back.
Great food at decent prices, nice ambiance, but really the service was fantastic—a complimentary tiramisu (possibly the best I have ever had) for my birthday was all I could have wished for. Thanks for making a birthday and meet-the-parents event as easy and smooth as possible!
We fell in love with the truffle bread here. This time around we actually ordered two of them on top of our meals. The service was great and the restaurant is beautiful. We will definitely be back!
Expensive but good
The wait period between each dish (appetizer, entree and dessert) was ridiculously long. We were there for about 2 hours from being seated to receiving the check. We noticed other guests that arrived after us, left before us. Also, a majority of the dishes were not available which was very disappointing. We were told the Lobster appetizer was not available. Then 1.5 hours later, the table next to us was told there was a possibility of being 1 left. Also, Italian restaurants generally offer bread with olive oil. We were not offered or given the choice for it as the table next to us was offered it. The value of the set menu and wait period was unsatisfactory.
The food was terrible. They had a set menu and half the items were sold out.
Angry I spent 200$ on cold meatballs, burnt Parmesan chicken, and worst dessert. Would not recommend.
Amazing Valentine’s experience. The prix fixe menu was to die for, the ambiance was romantic and classy, and our server was very attentive and friendly. Will be back for sure!
We went here for Valentine’s Day! We made a reservation and we’re not informed of the ore-set menu until we arrived, which was a 3 course meal for $65 per person. The overall value was good, the starters and main meals were fantastic but we were a little disappointed in the dessert. We would definitely go back, just needed a few tweaks!
Great time great food great service
Rick was the best waiter on our Valentine’s Day dinner. The menu was a little different but he made sure we found something we both enjoyed very much. We continue to go back time and time again!
Loud rude patrons, staff did nothing to help all the other diners enjoy their meal at the patio.
Very slow service and incomplete. Food comes out, no plates or utensils.
Good meal. Very busy.
My wife and I went to North Italia on Feb 13, for a "pre'-Valentine's" Dinner. It was very crowded at 6:30 PM and insanely noisy! We could not have a normal conversation but had to yell at each other across the table. The food was fabulous, some of the best Italian ever! Service was good, valet parking was overwhelmed with cars...
Great food. Bit of a wait, though. Despite reservation amd arriving timely, had to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated. Wait staff was attentive and nice, food just took quite a while to come to us. Will definitely eat here again, but will keep in mind that this place is more leisurely.
We had dinner for my daughter‘s birthday and overall it was great! We were seated exactly at the time of our reservation and our server was very attentive. The food was delicious and served in a timely fashion. It was extremely loud, unbelievably crowded and the people seated next to us were seated almost on top of us. The position of the tables was just odd. Other than that it was terrific and we will be back!
Everything was fantastic! Our service was impeccable, food came out great and timely efficient. Would definitely come back!
Great place for business discussions
Often have dined with friends and family at Cherry Creek Denver location, hoping for similar service and food quality.
I made an Open Table reservation, which was acknowledged at check in, but the promised “few minutes wait” became a half hour beyond my reservation time, outside, in the rain under an overhang with upwards of a dozen others, to be seated on a Sunday night.
Service at the table was prompt and professional, the zucchini chips and chicken parmigiana were superb, and wine delicious.
The restaurant is justifiably popular with people of all ages, and has a great location in Irvine.
Worth going out of your way to visit - hope others seated more quickly than I was.
Excellent food and service
Great place for Sunday brunch - good selection of breakfast and non-breakfast dishes, friendly service, though quite busy.
As soon as we were seated the waitress approached us...nice After that, a restaurant from hell. Someone requested a heater and the busboy proceeded to remove ours next to our table. He was condescending with a attitude that I told him not to remove it. We received our appetizers which where good. We order a pitcher of Sangria that was a little late showing up and was full to the top with ice on a cold night. We may of got 3 drinks out of it. We order a salad that was good. My dinner showed up and my date's dinner did not. I flag the waitress that seem that this issue was bothering her. I am now half way done with my dinner and flag my waitress again and ask for the Manager. After ten minutes the Manager showed up (BTW I was finished with my dinner), right from the start he was giving excuses. My date still has not received her dinner. He offered wine on the house which was nice but there is so many restaurants to go to in Socal why got back someplace like this.
Never disappoints! The food’s always delicious , the service is great.
As usual North Italia is fun easy and the staff makes you very happy with the attentive service level.
Absolutely delicious food, had been once before but on a much quieter night. We got the calamari, Cesar salad, short rib radiatori and the beef tenderloin - all were mouthwatering. Our waitress, Chelsea, was very friendly and great. It just took a little while for our dishes to come out because it was such a busy night. Seemed like anyone without a reservation would be out of luck!
