Great food excellent service I will go back again. We had the Tuscan kale salad The chicken pesto and the diver scallops were incredible!!
My favorite spot in Orange County. Consistently tasty and friendly staff.
Loved our waitress! She was so attentive and made our evening great! She gave us complimentary dessert because she overheard us celebrating our daughter getting into UCLA!
We love the food and the ambiance as well!!! 5 stars all around!
North always has a great vibe. The staff is always welcoming and the service is great. I may be biased as I live close to North but I always look forward to going there
North is one of my top, favorite restaurants, so it was an easy choice to celebrate a colleagues birthday. The food, service, and ambience, was top notch and always consistent. We always order the truffle cheese bread and calamari for appetizers and tiramisu for dessert. Thank you for the great service and delicious food!
My friends and I had such a great time on our last visit we plan to make it a standing dinner date every two weeks.
Love north, only problem is that it is incredibly loud inside!
The food was prepared and plated wonderfully. I would absolutely go here again.
Always good food and pleasant staff. Great place for happy hour, business meals or with friends.
Awesome food, great outdoor experience and with decent crowd! Server was attentive to our needs at the right time!
Food was good and the drinks were amazing !!! Def. Going back :)
The food and drinks were superb! We felt safe, as tables were appropriately socially distanced and the North Italia staff took the proper precautions. We had a fabulous, leisurely dinner, enjoyed the ambiance, food, drinks and even dessert! Will definitely visit again!
The outdoor patio was nice and the service was good. Parking is a bit crazy and limited close to the restaurant. They were out of the short ribs that I wanted so I opted for the shredded short ribs with pasta. The meat was way over salted and average at best. I was somewhat disappointed.
My Branzino was delicious. My husband ordered The arugula and avocado salad with salmon. He couldn’t find the avocado in his salad… Very few pieces. Disappointing
North Italia is always exceptional! Food always tastes fresh and amazing. Service is always great! Love coming here
Delicious food, great mixed drink, and the garlic bread truffle to die for. Make sure to check in with the host/hostess before your reservation so they know you arrived. Our food was delivered prompt and hot nothing was ever luke warm. It was a wonderful time celebrating my Anniversary with my partner. Only cons were, I asked for outside dining but was given indoor (not really a big deal so it was okay). Second our server was sweet and attentive but at times seemed to be overwhelmed with her tables, we had one water refill while there and no follow ups if we wanted anymore. Definitely though still a delicious place to come and eat.
Fabulous dinner outside!! Amazing food and service!
I ordered the veggie noodles. The portion was super small, kids size. For the price I was expecting a lunch portion
I live across the street from North Italia and love it here. Not only is the food great but the servers and bartenders are always so friendly. My go to appetizer is the fried calamari and the short rib pasta. I also love their Italian version of an old fashioned. Highly recommend.
thank you, friendly service, good food, great ambiance
Great food and a wonderful outdoor patio; great to return to North Irvine after a year away. Our favorite Irvine restaurant, excellent pastas, small plates, wine selection, salads and service to match.
Chris was personable and an outstanding server. He really made our birthday celebration special.
Great food as always!
Delicious food, great staff! Will definitely come here again!
North Italia never disappoints! Amazing food and our server was incredible. This remains one of my favorite dining spots, and my most recent visit was excellent!
Our lunch party of four decided to order several items for sharing. Our favorites were the short rib and polenta, kale salad, calamari, burrata, pasta bolognese and white truffle garlic bread.
You can’t go wrong...everything is outstanding!
Great as always
Good food, busy for a Tuesday & we ate outside!
Food is very consistent here. We were seated outside on the patio, very nice.
The Zucca chips were a bit salty, and our pizza had a topping that we asked to be removed... All in all, we enjoy coming to North.
Amazing! Food was great, service and ambience was excellent!
Service was great, not a fan of the food!
food is good and predictable. service was a little slower than normal, so it could have been an off day.
The Shrimp Scampi is exceptional. Shrimp is shrimp until these guys add their own version of the butter and garlic. And you won't want to miss the Truffle Garlic Bread.
Our server was amazing and made the birthday night so special for my boyfriend and I!
Our waiter was Excellent! And the food and cocktails were great! Enjoyed dinner. Always one of my favorite places.
Great food...DEE was our server and he made the evening worth it. We were surrounded by loud parties but that wasn't the restaurant's fault. The cocktails were the best part of the evening. DEE made sure I had an outside heater and knew the menu inside and out. I love when servers know the menu and talk more specifically about the drinks/food. THANK YOU!
Great-Consistent Great Food. Love the ambiance, feels very fun and relaxing.
Good food, good ambience
