North Italia is an outstanding gem of a restaurant in Kierland Commons. We found the food to be outstanding, with wonderful and surprising menu variety. The service was excellent and the ambiance lovely. We enjoyed it so much we ate there twice in one week!

Very nice meal and service but surprised that our tiramisu cam to our table in a paper take away container. Should have been presented in a ceramic plate or bowl, like the rest of the meal. Presentation is part of the meal’s quality.
Disappointed...

My food would have been wonderful but was way too salty, almost to the point of not wanting to continue eating it. The meatballs were delicious if not for the salt. The appetizer board was wonderful. Love the zucca chips but they were smaller and less crisp than the ones we always had at the Tucson North.
We were sitting on porch which was so pleasant because of the beautiful temps but the music was so loud we had a lot of trouble hearing the couple we were with. I think we were quite close to a speaker.
My husband and the other couple said their food was good. In fact my husband said the bolognese was outstanding!
Will try them again some time but will definitely ask them to hold the extra salt.

Always a great experience at North. I think our servers name was Nicole . She was wonderful! In fact North seems to have the best servers than any other restaurant we go to . The food was outstanding. Everyone’s meal was delicious. I had an all vegetarian dish which was perfect and so good. I love that more restaurants are accommodating people that are dairy free.

The food and service is always outstanding but it's just soooooo loud in the main dining room. Wish they could find some way to absorb some of the sound.

Was there for Valentine’s Day. Not a great impression. Bar service was best experience. Menu was preset for the holiday. First item requested was out, early in the evening. Then significant delays followed each course. I would try them again, but maybe not on a holiday.

I would recommend this restaurant anytime during the year except for Valentine’s Day when I made the reservation with open table I do not remember seeing anything about a fixed menu. And even when I got a call from the restaurants I was not reminded of a fixed menu getting there and realizing we were and how to spend $130 on I’m gonna let you know food that was not good at all that night very disappointing. We were not able to order anything else and at the time of getting there if we would’ve left we would not of been able to get into anywhere else

Friendly service, would have preferred a larger table. The food was visually appealing as well as delicatable ! I was disappointed that I was unable to have the chocolate cake you have that’s topped with pistachios.😕 We will definitely return.

Nice restaurant. Not for a quiet intimate meal. Everything is alacarte, so gets expensive quickly...Good food, but not alot of choices.

We come from New Jersey every year and this is our favorite place to eat. Everything is so well prepared and we especially love the artichoke appetizer. The dessert menu is very limited and needs a refresher. It would have been perfect if not for an extremely loud table behind us. I literally felt as though I needed noise reduction headphones.
