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.

Coming to North Italia for our Valentines dinner was a terrific decision. My complements to the chef for a spectacular dinner. Our server was very professional and delightful. Our expectations were more than met. Fabulous food, great service, and great value for the cost. You provided a wonderful experience for us. Thank you,

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.

Megan was our server. She was energetic and extremely knowledgeable. She knew the menu inside and out and what the chefs could do and what would be difficult. This is our favorite place to dine in north Scottsdale and we ALWAYS ask for Megan to be our server. I had an awesome Bourbon Apple Martini and we shared the garlic toast (buttered crack I call it) and I had prosciutto bruschetta and then we split a bolognese with 2 meatballs. I always had a fresh Pepsi and espresso and Ice-cream was described so decadently that we squeezed some in for desert and we were not disappointed. I feel like going to North is like going to my rich Italian friend’s house in Tuscany.

I love love love North Italia. It is mine and my boyfriend's favorite restaurant by far. The only thing we get is the short rib radiatori. It is absolutely delicious, and we both recommend getting it. I am both gluten and dairy free, and North Italia does a great job at catering to that. They have gluten-free pasta and pizza!

So many people raved about the restaurant so decided to go while in the area. I ordered the Pasta Bolognese and I found it to be nothing special. We also ordered the artichoke and part of it was under cooked. I am not sure i would choose to go back.

After watching Game Changer, I have become vegetarian-probably (0vo-lacto). I tried the winter vegetable salad and loved it! So much flavor. I was able to substitute the Camembert vinagrette. When the salad arrived, I thought the camembert was not in evidence. Our server ( over-the-top)suggested bringing a little cup of crumbled camembert to sprinkle on top. Great e xperience!

Pleasant spot. Waiter was great. Salad was wonderful. But the Tuscan chicken was very very spicy and it was dry. I’m sure another choice would have been better. Place was jammed. Just bad luck. I would definitely give it another chance.
