We enjoyed our dinner very much & the service was very good. However, the noise level was awful! We do not know how you might adjust this - perhaps the music could be turned down?

Magherita pizza was dry & burnt on the edges - would not recommend this menu item based on our experience. Tuscan kale salad was excellent as were the bolognese and the diver scallops special. Service was good, but we had 2 dogs near us and one was very agitated by the other one, so we had to cope with frequent barking, which disturbed enjoyment of our meal. We were seated outside as it was a beautiful night, but the restaurant really should do a better job of seating people with dogs, so no 2 dogs are near each other.

Wonderful lunch with family. We had a round table in the corner so we could talk and hear one another. The food was delicious - everyone had something different: Ceasar, meatballs, pizza, Bolognese, chicken Parmesan, Italian salad - everything was wonderful and the service was terrific. Can’t wait to return

We have been there before and they always do a good job. We were entertaining some friends from out of town and chose Noth Italia for dinner. Started with Calamari and Zucca chips yummy! For the main meal we had scallops, Squid Ink Mafaldine (spicy but delicious) and wild bass all of them were excellent! The staff was pleasant, knowledgable and helpful and the timing was great. Even though they were crowded we did not feel rushed.

Love the interior of this restaurant. It's cozy, yet energetic. We had the pasta which was fantastic. Service was impeccable and they even brought my wife a free dessert on her birthday. Get a reservation as it fills up fast.

This was by far the worst dining experience I have ever had and I eat put quit a bit. We had a 5:45 reservation (before the restaurant got busy), we were shuttled to a bar table because it would be quiet. There was very little room between tables (only 2 tables with diners in the area including ours). We asked to move to a corner table and was obliged. It took 20 minutes before anyone took our order. We ordered 7 small plates, an entree and a "butcher's board" and drinks for 4 people. It took 25 minutes before the food arrived and it arrived at the same time and it was COLD. Not all of it fit on the small table for 4. The wait person didn't check back for quit awhile. A table of 14vwas seated in the alleged "quiet area", which we later found out was the big party area. It took another 20 minutes to get our check and 15 minutes before the cards were processed. I'll never dine there again. What a horrible experience and evening.

Food is good as is the service. Outdoor dining is available. Excellent location right in the middle of Kierland Commons. The only downside is it can be quite loud in the indoor dining area

My wife and and I went here to celebrate our anniversary on our vacation. Delicious food, great atmosphere, great service. We got a complimentary desert for our anniversary, which was a nice touch. My wife was overjoyed with the dinner experience, so I’m happy!

We usually eat outside here. We were seated inside. The restaurant is very loud, resulting in conversation being very difficult. Will think twice before eating in the main dining area again.

I love to sit on the patio at North because the interior is super noisy. Seems to be the case at all the Fox restaurants I have eaten at. Our dinner was delicious. Love the grilled artichokes and the chef’s board. My only complaint is that the drinks definitely seemed to be taking their time to arrive, but other than that, two huge thumbs up.

North continues to be one of our favorite places. Food is always very nice and we particularly like the service, which is genuine, sincere and "uncomplicated." We'll be back for sure.

We were vacationing in Scottsdale and we always make it a point to eat at North. Food is always very good, prices are fair and usually service is very good. On this visit our food took much longer —in fact others that came in after us had their food and were almost done eating before we got our food. I did bring up the delay to the waiter and he apologized, but I was disappointed that the manager, who was nowhere in sight, didn’t come to our table to apologize.

North is always our “go-to”! Service is good, food is consistent and delicious. We prefer to sit outside now than the weather is getting nicer. Great ambiance and quieter than inside. We will be back soon!

Love this place! One of my favorite places. Definitely recommend the Short Rib Radiatori. I gave 4 stars on service because our waitress seemed to be non-existent some of the time, especially when we were ready to order, we could never seem to find her.

The food is always great , but the noise level is really unbearable.
It’s very hard to enjoy a conversation at all unless you sit outside.
I also think that there are too many tables and they are too close to other patrons.

The team is delightful. The decor is fun. The food is very very good to outstanding. It is getting a bit expensive for a simple lunch, but for a posh afternoon, you cannot beat North.
