    No words to describe this place! It is our family favorite since we move to Leawood last year, we know many of their team by name like Ian ( fantastic) Lizle ( amazing bartender) and many others that don’t came to my mind. We clearly could see many new faces this the past 2 months, looks like they are getting ready for the expansion and training new people their way. And they are doing amazing, yesterday we got Adam K, my son was in town to celebrate his 21 birthday we us and Adam nailed, he got that and bring a candle with the dessert! Seriously what place still doing that whit out you even ask for it! North Italia you guys are the best

    I love North. The Branzino is wonderful. Additionally, I adore the Seasonal Salad, the Zucca Chips and the Shortribs. What I don’t like is being rushed out. We had a 7:30 reservation on a Friday night. There were several 9pm seatings but the staff started vacuuming. There is no mistaking the feeling you get when someone thinks it’s time to end the evening.

    North Italia is one of our favorite places to dine. The food and drinks are great (especially the Gin and Tonics) but it is the team that makes the experience so memorable. Everyone there is friendly and helpful. We recommend North for lunch, dinner, or afternoon drinks on the patio.

    Our server overfilled water glass, spilled on table and floor in major traffic way. She was aware. Did not return to clean up and exchange my glass for one I could without spilling. I retrieved paper towels from restroom, cleaned it from floor. No other staff offered assist either. Fall danger to all unless wiped from floor! Unpleasant experience since seated at small table too close to large table of eight. So close it felt imposing on them.

    The spicy vodka sauce was definitely too salty. The salmon was great and the asparagus replacement for the broccolini was the best I’ve ever had. While I wasn’t enthralled with the white truffle small plate, the other two in our party real liked it. Server was attentive and personable. Wish price of a bottle of wine, we had the Riesling, was more in line with other restaurants in the area. Overall, a quality dinner with top notch service.

    First time going! Food was good. Tables are too close together and it really feels cramped. We went after two o’clock, so tables started to clear out. The more they cleared the better I felt about eating. I would have had a better dining experience if there was more space between tables. I would really consider bringing parties larger than 4 people, unless seated in a booth.

    I eat at this restaurant every few months and normally the food is outstanding, but I noticed a few things this time there were a lot of empty tables. Granted it was late at night it was 845 but normally when you order food even late at night, it should be good. My pasta came out and it taste of life with the chef. It was poor munch of salt all over the noodles, it was the point where I couldn’t even taste anything but salt. I couldn’t help and notice the empty tables and above the bar which had a lot of bottles of different types of liquor at one time was now totally empty so my question to myself when I was sitting there, are they trying to drive people away by giving crummy food, it looks to me like the place is half closed down. I eat out a lot and this was so disappointing and so upsetting to me after I’ve bragged this restaurant up for many months I will not be back it was disgusting.

    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.
