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.

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!

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.

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.

Kid friendly.

Highly recommend.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
