    I love their varied soups - this time sausage, kale, potato. Such great flavor. My "issue" was the overzealousness of our server. He really tried to hard to sell when we clearly only wanted to have a quiet lunch for 2. He took almost 5 minutes to describe the dessert.

    Our dinner was a great experience. Not only because of the fantastic food and energetic vibe, but also because of the amazingly friendly and efficient service from our server, Rachel! If you go to North, ask to be seated in her section. We were celebrating my friend's birthday and Rachel's great personality added so much to this special evening.

    The appetizer, the main course, and the dessert were all very good, and always very pleased with the meals. However, due to the construction this time, the ambience and nose level was not as enjoyable. There was a constant beeping, which I know that is a back up noise from machinery, but it is also an irritating sound .

    The place is being remodeled, so it wasn’t as nice inside as I anticipated. The food was mediocre, we had a reservation for five and they seated us at a table with six. I wish they would’ve pulled away the sixth chair because we’re round table and it was awkward. Don’t know if I’ll return.

    Went to Celebrate my birthday, listed that as the reason we were attending the restaurant…. Nothing, no mention of it from our waiter the staff, nothing… this is the second time we’ve been to North without a mention of a special occasion… last time was our anniversary…. I even reminded the staff on both occasions about the special event….. Maybe time to look going somewhere else. Maybe they just don’t recognize birthdays or anniversaries.

    The vodka martini for $16 was one of the smallest I’ve ever seen and I order these all of the city. The $15.50 old fashioned was almost as bad. Drinks were not a good value at all. Food was delicious

    I’m not a fan of a half booth and that’s what we were put in after we had had a reservation for two weeks. We had a very attentive server. We had ordered Zucca chips, and it took longer than it has before, but we were assured by our server that they were making them fresh, which I thought they always were. And once we got them, they were a little lukewarm. We ordered pizza and it was fantastic, hot and delicious. Will definitely return.

    North Italia is always our 'go to' for a special Valentine's Day dinner. We've done it for years and it's always been stellar. Except this time. They changed up the menu plan allowing diners to order off the regular menu instead of a preplanned menu which stressed the kitchen and, consequently, the wait staff. The food, when we got it, was still good but the service was very slow and I think that's because of the back up in the kitchen. It was pricey, but it always is for a special dinner and that's okay. I don't mind paying up for great food and great service but this year we just didn't get it. Next year I'll call ahead and see how the menu is planned. If it's like they did it this year, I'll give it a second thought before making a reservation.

    We were quickly seated and had an amazing waiter that ensured our drinks were full at all time and was very knowledgeable on the menu. I love that it is a cook from scratch kitchen so if you don’t like something in the dish, you can always remove it! Never had a bad experience or bad food here!

    It was a busy Saturday lunch. Took over an hour to get our orders and they apologized. The potatoes were very cold so basically inedible even though sandwich was great. My sister’s order was so salty she could not eat it but they just took it off the bill, so I felt they made it right. I could sense the staff was stressed even though we were not stressed ourselves (we weren’t in a rush). I would work on team building with your staff and encourage their better cohesion and not a culture of blame.

    Always love North and can count on a beautiful atmosphere and yummy food for a lunch out birthday celebration or otherwise with the girlfriends or meting up with another couple on the weekend. My heirloom beet and chicken salad with the avocado and goat cheese was incredibly delectable and fresh. Not the pickled beets most think of but surpising pops of flavor. My friend had the pizza of the day which was a spinach and artichoke and pesto combination. I wanted to order one to take home for dinner. We were treated to the salted caramel budino. Smooth and creamy without being too sweet as a lovely finish to our birthday lunch. We had a lot to catch up and the server knew exactly when to interact with providing excellent service and awareness of timing for our needs. Thank you for another wonderful meal and memory made!

    Disappointed they would not seat us in booth as they said reserved for more the 2 people. While we were there another couple was seated in a booth. Construction ongoing so large black tarp ceiling to floor behind the bar area. But hey at least they finally doing expansion as been talking about it for 2 years maybe more. Chicken Parm was very thin (yes I know it’s suppose to be but this extra thin). Tender but dry overcooked imo.

    North Italia in Leawood is one our go-to restaurants. I've recently discovered the simple salad with chicken, whereas the chicken parmesan is one of our family's favorites. The Julietta is also one of my favorite drinks. So happy to see they are expanding the restaurant to accommodate more guests.

    Food was average. Service was poor and slow. My chair broke while having dinner there. I feel to the floor. (I’m not overweight.) There was very little response from the management. Disappointing since it was extremely embarrassing and they didn’t seem to care.

    This was my 3rd time eating here at North Italia and it gets even better!! I had the Tuscan Chicken and it was by far the best chicken dish I have ever eaten in an American restaurant. It was delicious tasty hot and the gravy was perfect! I couldn’t have cooked it better myself. Don’t ever lose that Chef!

    My mom and I had a lovely dinner! Our server, Sydney, was amazing! She was attentive, answered all of our questions, and was a great conversationalist. The food was equally as amazing, but the brussels sprouts were by far our favorite part of the meal. We also had the garlic bread and the mushroom-filled ravioli. We will definitely be returning for the food and the wonderful service!

    A great lunch experience on a frigid day in Kansas City. We were greeted warmly by the hostess, seated immediately - and our server was absolutely terrific. There's a big creative menu, and the food as always, was wonderful. Treat yourself and/or someone else to this gem of a restaurant.
