    North Italia has always been a great place for Italian food. Sometimes the place is very crowded and loud, but the energy is great. I would love to see a little bit broader menu but pretty much everything on it is fantastic.

    The service and food were outstanding. We arrived at 8:00 p.m. and were so enchanted by the food and service that we stayed past closing. In fact, when I looked up from our conversation about the quality of the food and drink, I was surprised that we were the only ones left in the restaurant. Rather than push us to leave our server and the staff let us enjoy our meal and discussion even though it was a Sunday night and I’m sure they wanted us to leave so they could close out and go home. Thanks to all of you for being so kind to us. The great service is appreciated, and the food was excellent. Be sure to give it a try!

    Very disappointing experience at an establishment we have frequented dozens of times. It was a birthday reservation with a request to sit outdoors. No notice that the patio was closed no acknowledgment of birthday and when offered a dessert it took 40 minutes to get it. Not believing this was about lack of staffing but mostly lack of attention to detail and caring. You can do better as We know.

    This was our first visit here and not sure we will visit again anytime soon. First, the earliest reservation we could make was at 8:45 PM. That was fine with us, but when we arrived the restaurant was only about 1/3 full, so why? Second, I noted on our Open Table reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. The staff/restaurant did nothing to acknowledge this as other local restaurants have done when this was noted on the reservation request. Third, one of the appetizers we ordered was not available (due to them running out as it was late in the day). They offered a replacement for it which we thought was going to be 1/2 price or comped, but it wasn’t. Fourth, my daughter and I both ordered the Vodka penne pasta entree and they only had enough penne pasta for one of them so we agreed to sub another pasta (no big deal but just another thing that went wrong). Fifth, we wanted to order dessert for my daughters birthday and we were told by our server that the restaurant closed at 9 so there were no desserts available. We ordered our entrees right at 9pm…..guess it’s lucky we got those. WOW…..we felt like a series of unfortunate events. If I would have known that 1/2 of our choices would not be honored because we took a late (not even the latest) reservation, I would have chosen another restaurant. It would have been nice if a manager would have come by to apologize at least for all the shortcomings but nothing. Food was good but get there early I guess.

    It was very loud and difficult to hear the conversation with my husband sitting right across from me. The waiter was not very accommodating. I ordered the half baked chicken with au jus. It came with a thick reduction sauce that was very salty and ruined the dish. I asked the waiter if I could have some au jus and he said no that’s how it came. I explained to him that the menu stated it came with au jus and not a reduction sauce. Again he repeated that’s how it is made and walked off. Not very satisfying as this had been one of my favorite restaurant that I visited frequently. I definitely have had better service and food in the past.

    A group of 4 women friends were looking forward to a nice dinner at North. Unfortunately, that is not what we got. Upon arrival, we learned that our reservation had been used to seat another group; luckily, there was a table for us but that set the tone. Our waiter, Jack H was cocky and snarky. One in the party has special dietary needs and was very specific in her requests. Jack appeared to be accommodating but he didn't really deliver. When her appetizer was brought out, not to her standards (overcooked and poorly presented), he did not seem too interested. To make matters worse, this friend was eating her main course...again, less than impressive based on her request...and she found a hair in the food. YUCK! The manager came to our table, apologized and prepared her a new dish while the other 3 of us waited to eat our meals. Mine was a cold salad which was easy to wait to eat; however, the other 2 had hot dishes that would have been better to eat at least warm. When the time came to pay, Jack brought one check for the whole table. He didn't bother to ask how to split the bill and it would have seemed obvious that 4 women eating together would have wanted separate checks. To top things off, unbelievably, the friend who had to return her entree due to the hair in it did not receive her meal comped. What a joke! The food was overpriced and some of the portions mediocre. We could not wait to get out of there...and head to Baskin Robbins where we enjoyed our dessert and discussed that it would be a long time before (if ever) we returned to North.

    Service was slow. Didn’t appear to be a staffing issue, maybe more of a food prep issue. Biggest complaint was that we ordered white wine that upon tasting was not chilled. They said that their coolers weren’t working. Now why wouldn’t they tell me that when I ordered it? I would have ordered red wine instead. We had to wait a long time for our check. Table next to us ordered fish, the smell of which nearly knocked us off our chairs. Our food was very good.

    I met a girlfriend here for a Saturday brunch, and it was very, very busy. The food took a while and was cold. The manager was not very friendly and she acted like we were a bother to her. My friend suggested we come to North but I would recommend not going here for brunch. There are tons of other places with friendlier staff

    The noise level was so loud even with us sitting next to one another. The service was very slow which we were warned of with a sign. I’ve had this waitress several times and she has been very good but was apparently stressed due to having too many tables to tend too. My drink I wanted with dinner came after I had finished my dinner.
