It's quite a treat to eat at North! The zucca chips are always super light and crispy. I usually get the seasonal vegetable dish with a protein, but tried the Bolognese as they had the vegetable noodles to stay lower in carbs. I'm always pleased with the quality of service, so when we invite guests, they have an excellent time.

We had a wonderful dinner and a great evening in a relaxed atmosphere. The staff was engaging and helpful in explaining menu items and making recommendations. The calamari small plate was an amazing appetizer. The pasta main dish servings were superb and more than ample with plenty to take home for lunch. We had the chicken pesto and a dish with chicken, porcini and pine nuts (I forgot the name). My husband said the salmon was good also. We definitely would go back and try some other items that looked interesting.

It was wonderful! Food & service! There is one thing I think every time I eat at North. I am shocked that to add salmon to any salad is $9. That would make all the salads near $20 and some almost $25. And the salads are very small. Maybe you should offer bigger salads, maybe a smaller portion of salmon so you feel you can charge less and people can have an amazing salad (more of it please) with a small amount of amazing protein! Please consider. It this happens, I would want to eat there every day!!

Although North Italia got high reviews, we aren't sure why. Incredibly close quarters, extremely noisy. We had a mixed review of the food, mine was very good and my wife's was very, very poor. Normally we give a restaurant two chances, but this one we won't as there are better Italian Restaurants around the area.

The food is great and the restaurant is certainly stylish. The biggest downside is that it is loud. A good place for a fun dinner with friends, but not the best for date night.

Every single thing on the menu is exquisite. Even menu items with ingredients I know I do not care for, when I try it I’m amazed. The food is worth the trip, albeit a pricey trip. It’s expensive but if you can swing it, I recommend it. The service is top notch. 10/10 would eat again.

A friend and I went to North Italia for lunch. I had the meatballs with garlic bread and she had the pizza. Both of us enjoyed our meals. The waitress was very good. The windows all around made it a good place to visit and look out. We were seated as soon as we got into the restaurant as I had booked with Open Table.

The noise level made our experience difficult. We had dinner towards the end of happy hour. The noise and the chaos from the bar area made it difficult for us to hear each other from across the table. We were hoping for a more intimate dinner experience. Our server was excellent.
