Service was slow and food was all but horrible. The meatballs were the only thing that wasn’t too bad. We were sick the rest of the day and the next morning from whatever meat was in the salad we think as it tasted horrible. Beware and we won’t be back. Sorry we really wanted to like this place

Tables were too close together 6”, crowded to the max. Hard for servers, hard to hear. Great for Covid spreading.

We love North Italia! From the food to the service, we always look forward to coming here. Suggestions if needed: the ginger margarita for a cocktail, meatballs or the shrimp for an appetizer, and most definitely the bolognese for dinner. The chicken parmesan is also amazing. Also want to add, this place is great for a date night as well as for bringing your family :)

We were seated next to the floor to ceiling windows and it was freezing. The biggest disappointment was trying to order wine by the glass. Our first 3 choices were unavailable. The fourth time was the charm. How do you not have your wine by the glass selections on hand ? The server was polite and we gave her a 22% tip because the temperature and lack of wine by the glass were not her fault, but it was not our typically positive experience at North.

My experience at North is usually great - the food and service was on par. However, I called the night before to add one more person to our reservation and was immediately denied. Totally understandable, as it was NYE. When we arrived for our reservation the next night, we noticed that the restaurant was 50-75% full at best, and they could've easily accommodated our 5th guest. We were very disappointed in the way this was handled.

Great Atmosphere …. High ceilings, airy and light.
Chairs are amazingly comfy.
The hostesses who greeted us were delightful, as was our server.
Table service uniformly excellent.
Food to die for …. And it all was so fresh …. Even the iced tea and coffee were amazing.
Can’t wait to go back !!

Everything was wonderful but the food. Brett was our server and he was outstanding. My pasta dish was very, very salty and the pasta was raw. My friend ordered the breakfast sandwich. He didn’t say much about the sandwich, but the potatoes were salty beyond comprehension. He ate 1/2 of the sandwich and left the potatoes.

We made reservations so no wait time to be seated, little slow to be asked about drinks, but everything else about the service was quick. Only downside was that they ran out of what I wanted to order so I had to decide on something else - still delicious though, so overall turned out fine. Little on the noisy side though due to being a completely open room.

Just an FYI unless you sit in their dinky bar area (seriously seats so few people), you cannot get the happy hour specials, even if you're there for happy hour. So, if there's no room at the bar and you're wanting a happy hour experience, skip North Italia.

Our server also asked if we wanted a meal "spicy or regular," and then charged us extra for spicy, even though it seemed like a standard option and he did not mention the price difference, nor was their a difference noted on the menu.

Food was tasty, and portion sizes were good - not too big, not too small. Highly recommend the aperol spritzer cocktail and the proscuitto bruschetta. I would still recommend it as a good dinner or brunch experience for someone, despite the above issues, simply because the food is so darn good.

I’m so saddened because this is one of our favorite restaurants. I know that times are tough, and maybe it’s hard to have consistency in the kitchen, but the last three times we’ve been, we’ve had all sorts of issues with the food. One day both our pastas were wayyyy undercooked, so we asked for them to try again, and it came back the same way. It’s aggravating because I don’t think it’s very hard to cook pasta. This is not usuallly a problem at North. Last time, my husband got the chicken because he was afraid to get the pasta, and it was so salty, he could hardly eat it (and he is not afraid of salt). The truffle bread that we love was also strange last time with barely any cheese, and what was there was cold. Anyway, sadly we won’t he going back for a while, but judging by how busy it is, I hope they can make it over the hump. We’re pulling for them, but I don’t think we’ll be back for a while.

The meatballs are outstanding! My family went for my birthday dinner and all of our entrees were delicious and our service was excellent. The restaurant has a happy hour from 3:00-6:00 pm so we sat in the high top tables in the bar for drinks and ordered our dinner from there. The restaurant has a modern vibe with lots of outdoor seating for those beautiful, sunny days. They even gave me a birthday dessert of my choice! We will return!
