Very enjoyable lunch, food was great and sat outside on the patio which was very pleasant
Our service was slow on drinks and think they forgot some of our order and put in late. Still love place and food but service was off.
We appreciate your feedback and apologize for your slow service. We will share this with the team in an effort to always improve. We hope to see you again soon!
Wonderful patio and excellent food and service.
Everything was fine, the meal was not hot and I believe it had to do with the fact our waitress was so busy assisting behind the bar that we were not her top priority at times. She was very cordial, accommodating but certainly expected to do a lot more that day than just wait tables. To bad we took friends that had never been to North, I hope it didn’t affect their opinion of this wonderful establishment
Hi Mike, Thank you for your feedback. I apologize that your experience was not as it should have been. Please reach out the next time you visit so that we can ensure a wonderful experience.
My wife and I had a great time at North Italia while staying at the Westin Kierland for a few days. In fact, we decided to eat dinner there twice during our 5 nights since we liked it so much! The Zucca Chips and Proscuitto Bruschetta were both amazing appetizers. For entrees, we tried out the Bolognese as well as the Chicken Parmesan. Both were fantastic! The noodles were really tasty, and the sauces on both entrees were full of flavor. Definitely a great spot.
Hi Billy, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are so glad that you enjoyed everything. We hope to see you again!
Local favorite..wonderful brunch lunch or dinner. Nice outdoor seating with misters a plus. Service was spectacular. Don’t forget to order a loaf of bread to take home. Would recommend for any occasion.
One of my favorite places to eat - friends, work lunch, or date night!
Love the meatballs, zucca chips, and Italian Farm salad... yum! Service is always great and the ambience too.
This is the first time my wife and I have been able to go out and have dinner since COVID-19. The staff was incredibly friendly, everyone always had a face mask on and I saw the hostess constantly cleaning the menus. We sat outside since it was a nice evening and we felt that the tables were spaced far enough apart and we never felt over crowded. Overall we had a great night and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Hi Matt, Thank you so much for your review. We are so glad that you were able to come dine with us and feel comfortable. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
I had a great birthday dinner at North Italia. My friends really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. Only hang up was the lack of airflow throughout Bar North. It was a bit stifling and made it uncomfortable.
Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a wonderful time. We apologize for the airflow at Bar North. We will have that fixed in no time. We hope to see you again soon!
Relaxing place for dinner. All staff were wearing masks and social distancing was practiced.
Outside patio was great, and as always the good was fantastic!!!
We're glad you enjoyed your time! We'll see you on the patio the next time you're here!
The food is always outstanding, and the wait staff are courteous, polite, and I would recommend this restarant to people who love Italian food. JR
We are so glad to hear about your experience with the staff! We'll be sure to pass the message along to them! See you next time!
Great vibe, friendly staff, great service, fantastic food!
Thank you so much for stopping in! We look forward to serving you again!
Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food. Defiantly recommend the braised short rib!
Thank you for the wonderful review! We hope to see you again soon!
North is one of my favorite restaurants. We have enjoyed excellent food and service there for many years. I especially enjoy the Tuscan kale salad, the bolognese, any of the pizzas, and the salted caramel budino for dessert. You can't go wrong dining at North. I highly recommend it.
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so happy that you love North! We can't wait to see you again.
Beautiful patio. Very good service here also.
A great date night
Made a reservation outside for 4 on a Monday night, had to wait forever and also got sat in the way back bar area, not even in the actual restaurant patio area that I made reservations for. Food was good. Service was fine considering how far away we were from everyone. Personally I went here to enjoy the ambiance and atmosphere along with drinks and dinner. So I didn’t love that we were sat so far away from the actual diner area. Basically ate at shake shack. Lol.
Hi, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you were unhappy with where you were seated. We are happy to accommodate requests for seating. Please request the "Main Side Patio" when making a reservation so we can be sure to seat you where you would like. We are glad that you enjoyed the food and the service. Thanks!
They need to bring back their original seasonal salad (with butternut squash, etc.) Their current seasonal salad tastes bitter.
Hi Robyn, Thank you for the feedback. Our salad changes seasonally so stay tuned for our new version with our upcoming fall menu.
We just had an impromptu date night
Food was amazing! Can't wait to go back and try different menu items!
We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Food excellent, service excellent
We went here for my birthday dinner as was recommended by our foodie neighbors. They were not wrong. The dishes were very authentic Italian dishes that were Devine. We ordered the meatballs, pasta, short ribs, tiramisu - everything was delicious and we would definitely come here again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend advanced reservations as they limit capacity indoors due to covid. Worth it!
Thank you for the wonderful review! We can't wait to see you again.
Busy Saturday night and the kitchen couldn't keep up the pace with orders taking quite some time to find their way to tables. But great food! Worth the wait.
Hi Larry, Thank you for the review and your patience. We apologize that the food took awhile, your feedback is valuable to us. We hope to see you again soon!
Very tasty food and great service I will highly recommend North Italia to my friends
Totally great as usual 😎
Outdoor seating is NOT socially distanced at all. Had other restaurant guests walk by and cough on our table because they were upset we did not want them sitting too close.
Hi Monica, Thank you again for taking the time to call and make me aware of the situation. I have had the opportunity to follow up with my team in order to better address this situation in the future as we want to make sure all social distancing guideline are being followed at all times. Thanks, Antonia
Fabulous as always !
I got the the skirt steak and it was phenomenal.
Good as always :) North Italia is our favorite restaurant to splurge money on. We love the short rib radiatori, and the tuscan kale salad. Somehow our bill ended up being $96 with tip, when usually it's around $60-70, just for the two of us. Not sure how that happened, but yeah. Still good tho.
Hi Hannah, Thank you for dining with us! We are thrilled you enjoyed everything. If you are concerned about the total of the bill please give us a call and we would be happy to look into it for you. We hope to see you again soon!
North is always a good bet. Lots of fun sitting out on the patio and watching the world go by. Food is always very good and consistent as well. I loved my burrata and heirloom tomato salad, short rib and polenta and butter cake. My server (male) was efficient and friendly. Nice Italian wine list, too. Try the Primitivo!
Hi Tammy, Thank you for the awesome review! We love serving you and can't wait to see you again.
Our server, Tyler, was fantastic! We were celebrating a birthday... he offered excellent food selections, drinks, never hurried us, was friendly and made our lunch a winner!
Thank you for celebrating with us! We are so happy to hear of your experience. We hope to see you again soon!
It's a great place for a nice lunch or dinner and dine inside or out! Excellent service.
Thank you for the nice review. We look forward to seeing you again.
Made a reservation 2 weeks in advance for 7 only to be seated in the overflow area... not what I was looking for in this special occasion.
Hi, Thank you for the feedback. We are sorry that you were disappointed with the seating. We do have two dining rooms that we seat nightly, if you have a preference for one dining room over the other we are always happy to try and accommodate that request. We look forward to having you come back again, when you do please request to be seated in the main dining room. Feel free to give us a call to discuss with a manager if you would like.
Thank you so much for a great Dinner night again with my girlfriend. Already left you a great review on Yelp because the entire meal was perfect and the server Norma I believe her name was amazing. Thanks again!
This was our first time here. The food and service was very good and we especially enjoyed the outdoor patio and the misters to keep us comfortable!
Thank you! We look forward to seeing you again.
Birthday celebration with a group of friends. Food was excellent, service was very good. Don’t expect a check to be split for you unless you tell them in advance.. A bit loud unfortunately in the restaurant. Dessert was amazing also I will be back!
Sad too see. First time back after several months. This was our go to place. Food terrible. Chicken parm overcooked and way too salty. Pizza burned. Staff in la la land. Our old haunt is no longer. Will be a long time before returning. Sad. Overcrowded as well. No sign of COVID precautions. Poor management. Would not recommend
I am very sorry to hear of your experience. We take many COVID precautions to protect all of our guests and staff. We would love the opportunity to discuss with you and invite you back in for a better experience. Please call us and ask to speak with the General Manager.
Always great food and service. Friendly attentive staff and an all around enjoyable meal.
Thanks for the love! We are so happy to hear your great feedback. See you soon!
Each and every employee we encountered was friendly, genuine and professional. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and able to take our time thru each course unhurried. All of the food was spectacular from the artichoke appetizer, to dessert. A wonderful evening!
Happy Anniversary! We are so happy that you celebrated with us. Thank you for the wonderful compliments. We hope to see you again soon.
