Food was great! As a lot of restaurants are experiencing right now, they seemed understaffed. Food took a long time to get to our table. It was much louder and difficult to hear guests at my table at this location than at Arcadia. Awesome fresh summer drink selections.
- It would be better to have one large table for a party of 3 or 4 instead of 2 small tables joined together.
- Table presentation could be improved with a center piece.
Excellent food and service. Celebrates a 50th bday! We will definitely be back!
Food, service & cocktails were great. Staff is always friendly.
Another wonderful dinner at North.
Slow service. Noisy. Poor quality for price point. Won’t be coming back.
I’ll be back for another bowl if the Minestrone!! It was so fresh and healthy!! I enjoyed the Italian farm salad and they were nice to switch out provolone for goat cheese. It’s an easy restaurant to eat at if you deal with food allergies. Patio seating was great!
A great place
We have dined here for years and always have a good meal. North is consistently good.
Food is amazing. Very nice about customizing dishes for vegetarian and vegan diets.
Very nice waitstaff.
Way to noisy.
My wife and I have eaten brunch here a few times and we’ve loved our experiences. The restaurant is great, across the board. The food is always very good and fresh (I’ve had the “farmer’s market scramble”) and the menu is large with a lot of diverse options to choose from. The service is excellent; very friendly and accommodating. And the setting (we’ve eaten outdoors) is relaxing and charming, evocative of eating on a friend’s patio. Also, they make a great (and large) cup of coffee.
It was very nice outside, thankfully it wasn't to hot outside. We met our friends from California. They loved the area the the also were very happy they the food. We all got the same dish and it was delicious.
Seasonal salad with chicken was great. Meatball Pizza was ok- a little sparse on the “meatballs”. Great wine selection.
Had a date night with my husband. It was phenomenal and we will be back. They market board for a starter was fantastic and highly recommended.
First time at North Italia. The food was awesome. Fresh pasta. Huge meatballs that were perfectly tender.
A broad mix of patrons. Some for a nice date while others just finished shopping and were more casual.
The server was great except we were overcharged on our bill and didn’t realize until we left. The food delivery was slow. Normally we really like North but today was an off day.
All round fantastic experience. Food and service were terrific. We had a great family night.
My daughter and girlfriend did not mind sitting outside with the misters on but I would have preferred inside and I had a reservation.
Great ambiance for a business meal. Food and service were excellent. I love this place and will be back many times for business and with the family.
Thank you so much! We are happy you had an awesome time!
Another decent, but uninspired FRC experience. How did North Italia earn Phoenix Mag's best Italian restaurant with the likes of Tratto and others in the Valley??
I'll recommend on the basis that I think (hope) they can do better.
Good food and service, but the noise level is way off the chart.
Thank you! We do have patio seating and an additional dining room to accomodate for noise levels the next time you are in!
Delicious pizza and burrata appetizer, perfect portions for lunch.
Thank you! We are happy to hear you had an awesome lunch!
Our server was really great! Excellent food
We enjoy North but it was so loud Wednesday evening that conversation was difficult. The food was good and the staff was friendly and efficient. We’ll be back.
Id been to North a couple times before and its been the same, if you don't sit outside it will require shouting to visit with your friends. We were going to sit outside but the group consensus was inside. It is the most uncomfortable restaurant I know of in the area. But, we tough it out.
I had a pig pizza. Not bad, sauce was tasty, crust pretty good. Of course its a meat based pie, but I would enjoy it more had it been less of an onslaught of meat. That's why they call it the Pig Pizza. Would not order again.
My wife ordered a Short Rib pasta and hated it. I tried it too and I did not know what it was and (because I could not hear what she was saying) thought it was just a cheese pasta. I did not know it was short rib until I paid the bill. She wished she had sent it back but the server came by so fast and ask 'is it okay?" ... she gone in a blink and never was seen again until the bill came.
No more North for me
Hello Gary. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We are disappointed to hear about your subpar experience. We would love to discuss further to right this most recent visit. Please give us a call at the restaurant and ask to speak with a manager. Phone: 480-948-2055.
We have dined at North many times and have always had a great experience. This is why we have dined with you multiple times. This last visit was shockingly bad. The service was subpar as our waitress seemed disinterested. The menu has changed and many of our favorites are gone. However, what we did order was unacceptable. The Arancini recipe has clearly changed, it was soft and soggy with little flavor in comparison to the previous recipe, which was always crisp and flavorful. The Zucca chips were cold and oily. Our mushroom pizza was greasy and lacked the flavor that it usually has. We are saddened to see one of our favorite restaurants so quickly becoming below average. We expected better from a tried and true restaurant.
Hello, I am sorry to hear about this disappointing experience. I always appreciate feedback as this gives us an opportunity to improve in all facets of service. Please, give us a call at the restaurant and ask to speak to a manager so we can discuss further. Thank you. Phone: 480-948-2055.
Excellent food and service.
We always go for Sunday lunch, the menu is great, the food very fresh and well prepared, the service is always solid, I have a 5 and 2 year old and they are great with them and take care of them very well and pro-actively. I love the vibe as well.
This is our favorite restaurant. The food is amazing! Alex was our server and he rocks!!
Promptly seated. Server was nice and helpful. Food was delicious!
North is great for special occasions or taking guests from out of town or just having a great dinner. The service is always wonderful and the food is delicious. It’s atmosphere is upbeat but cozy. Good place for a date, we highly recommend them. Good wine selection also.
I took the family for my husband’s birthday. The food was excellent and our server, Melissa was very efficient and accommodating. I made a cake and they allowed me to bring it. While supplying the plates and knife, even offered a candle. Would go again.
We love north italia and come back every year when we stay at Westin kierland. The food and service are wonderful. The chicken pesto is delicious.
This year it was quite loud in the restaurant so it was difficult to hear anyone at our table talking. Other than that, the experience was great! We will be next year but will probably ask for an outside table.
I'm here at North Italia Kierland a lot, love this place. But was surprised that the chicken I had added to the Tuscan Kale salad was entirely dried out, I left half on the plate and won't ever add chicken again. It was disappointing. The place wasn't busy in 100 temps outdoors, so I can't attribute it to that.
Always a good spot for lunch or dinner!
Friends joined us for dinner. Great food and service
Thank you for the review! Hope to see you again soon!
Food was delicious. Service was excellent and fun.
Thank you for the review! Hope to see you again soon!
Enjoy their Tuscan Kale salad! And zucca chips
Our server, Tiffany was great. She was very busy but the other servers were standing around watching videos on their phones not assisting or paying attention to the customers.
When I first entered the restaurant I walked up to the wrong desk. I didn’t notice the hostess at the other desk and the guy behind the counter that I first walked up to, ignored me until my husband told me to turn around as I was standing at the to go area.
Our server was great and attentive I just wish the other servers were the same. Food was good but not great or worth the money spent.
I will most likely not return but go back to Fat Ox Modern Italian where the service and food are top of the line.
