Great Service, our server was absolutely the best. The food was wonderful. we really enjoyed our roasted cauliflower app. and our dinners were both excellent. My only disappointment was the old fashioned drink that I ordered. I believe it was 17.00 which I felt was pretty high. I would definately recommend this restraunt.

Excellent food. Very, very good service. A bit cramped and a bit loud, but what can you expect when a place has such good food and service?

Very nice restaurant for date night. The food was great too! Wish my entree came with a veggie so had to order a separate small salad. That would be my only complaint but other than that, everything was awesome!

Valentines Dinner - Appetizers were great, main entrees were less than expected. Wines were very pricey. Service was great.

We arrived a few minutes early for our 5 o’clock reservation. We were seated immediately, but then no one came to our table at all for 30 minutes. When we indicated to the hostess that nobody was waiting on us, they seemed very confused as to what to do. Once somebody finally made it to our table, things went much smoother. The food was very good, but the menu was very limited, as advertised in their email. For dishes that are standard on their menu, I thought the price for the dinner was much too high. I love North, and will go back again. We were just unfortunately the one who drew the short card for service tonight.

Came for Valentines Day as we had been there before. Selections were OK however the quality of the Sea Bass and Chicken entrees were not the quality for $55.00 per person. Ambiance music was not to great either and the tables could have been separated a little. I guess we did get to visit with the people who sat next to us and we could see what they had ordered for their dinner. Did see a few people leave as the price was not expected for the dinner of the day and one could not order off a regular menu. Will look for a different place next year.

Great food and service but layout leaves a lot to be desired. They’ve tried to cram way too many tables in there, hard to walk from one end of the place to the other without knocking into someone and you feel like you’re sitting in on someone else’s convo the whole time.

Manager was really nice, but our waitress was too busy ignoring our table. The restaurant was extremely slow with only four other tables at that time in total.

We had to get her attention multiple times, took 25 minutes to get water. She rarely checked in and was not very friendly what-so-ever.

This is the second experience at North recently that has not gone well. Need to train wait staff to be attentive to their tables. Manager is friendly and checks in, need to bring this same level of customer service to your employees.

When North has better trained staff who can actually take care of their customers I will be more willing to come back.

North Italia has fresh tasting food. However, the prices are high for what
you get and I felt the service could have been a little more hospitable.

Thought food was good -- tasty and fresh. Waiter was good, friendly and knowledgeable. There were small, annoying service issues involving people other than the waiter. Example: Our entrees were delivered by two servers while our appetizer plates were still on the table. Wasn't sure what to do but the table was small so something had to be removed/moved. i asked the server what she needed and was told, "my hands are full." So, i guess it was up to me to decide how this was going to work. There was no place to put the appetizer plate so i held it up and then traded with the server. Very awkward.

Service was poor. We were celebrating our daughters birthday. The waitress was slow to greet us, took an awkward length of time to get cocktails and then I had to ask her to take the kids’ drink orders. She delivered my daughters dinner knowing it was wrong when we said it wasn’t what she ordered. She said-ya-I’m not sure why they used spaghetti noodles-she’d ordered the bolognese. I had to call her over to replace it. Then, the five of us waited an obscene about of time before she brought back the replacement. She seemed to be in no hurry even though we were all waiting.
Typically, we love this restaurant and I go often. I may not go back for a while.

Great food, great service! I would only change one thing...the tables are very close together (like 12 inches or less) it can make you feel like your eating at dining table with the party next to you.

We visited North this past weekend. It had been awhile. First, the ambiance is excellent. The host and hostess both greeted us warmly and we were promptly seated. Our server promptly provided menus, took our beverage order and returned with our beverages. We both had the simple salad. It was ample in size and properly dressed. For a main course I had the radiatorre with short ribs while my wife had a margarita pizza. Both were delicious. Our choice for dessert was the vanilla ice cream with expresso/coffee beans. Excellent! I highly recommend North Italia for a night out.

Great food as always, very loud and a bit hard to talk. Also we sat at the tables against the wall of kitchen and sitting in the chairs we repeatedly had our chairs hit when people were walking by. Preferred the booths before.

The food is inventive but relatable, where you don’t have to look up words in a food dictionary. It’s yummy and satisfying. Every time I’ve been there it is crowded, middle of a Tuesday, Sunday afternoon and of course the weekends. Service is always courteous and knowledgeable. It’s just a solid bet every time.
