Twice they brought us the wrong order - we waited and waited. It was an awful experience.

We were seated in Bar North at 4pm. There was a large table in the middle that had not been cleaned. And it was filthy. Food all over table and all over floor. We sat watching about 10 different employees walk around the dirty table for about 40 minutes and then someone finally decided to clean it. Totally unacceptable. There were flies all over in the restaurant. Very unappetizing. Other patrons were watching and waiting for the table to be cleared too. I will not be back anytime soon.

Breakfast carbonara pasta was incredibly spicy this last time (strange, I know?) I’ve had it a handful of times now and most of the time it is creamy and rich, but a few times now it tastes like it has either a ton of red pepper flakes in it or chili oil or something. Couldn’t consume it last time. Too hot!

Every time we eat here it’s a “10”. Food is always excellent and service is prompt. It’s hard to break away from ordering there seasonal vegetable salad... so yummy.
My wife and I usually split a couple of meals so we have worked our way through most of the menu. Haven’t found anything we don’t like.

We've been there before and enjoyed the food and ambiance. North Italia is probably near the very top of consumer chain restaurants. Too often, if a chain Italian restaurant has good food, it doesn't have the value nor the conducive ambiance of "real Italian" dining. It's one thing to hype a good story about "mama's secret recipe" and to actually deliver -- not so, with North Italia. They have it all: great food, service, and of course, value. My wife and I highly recommend North Italia for a great dining experience; including, the right kind of atmosphere.

We went down for happy hour on the patio, they server said it was only available if we sat at the bar inside. I looked it up on the internet and do not recall it being a specific place we had to sit. That is a bit of a scam I think. Other than that food was good as well as the service.

We have eaten here many many times and for some reason this visit did not go so well. Service was very slow and inattentive. The pasta was undercooked to the point of chewy on all three of our dishes. The server asked if we wanted to return our plates but we said no due to time restraints. We did ask to let the kitchen know for the sake of other dishes being served. She said she would and never did. I get the same dish and the sauce seemed very thinned out so the flavor wasn’t there. Also noticed our server chatting with the other servers a lot which could explain the slow service and the wine I ordered with my meal not showing up unit my meal was almost finished. I know times are hard right now so it’s nothing that’s going to keep me from coming back in the future.

Always the best service and food. I miss the grilled artichoke but the simple salad and other appetizers are always so delicious! I love the red wine sangria, the strozzapreti pasta is so fresh and the salted caramel budino is to die for! Never disappoints!

First time back at this North and still extremely noisy. Feels More like a sorts bar than an Italian Bistro
Food and service were good . Many other local choices just as good which provide more relaxed atmosphere.

In general, we really enjoyed our meal. It was a bit noisy at the time we were there. The only problem with the meal was that the tagliatelle was undercooked, not al dente but the sauce was great. I enjoyed the grilled bread which paired nice with the Arancini. We both really liked the sangria.

The food was great, but because they were packed, the service was a little slow at first, but got much better when our server/bartender got some help. It was crazy busy. Be sure you make a reservation.

We sat on the outdoor patio and with the misters it was nice. However, halfway thru lunch the misters were turned off. It made our experience very disappointing.

Well worth a visit!

Looking for fresh, tasty Italian in Scottsdale? This is the place. Excellent, attentive service in an upscale casual environs. The Margherita Pizza is delicious, also the Caesar Salad. Great drink choices as well.

Be sure to conclude with the best Espresso and Cappuccinos in AZ. We plan to return again soon.

We've been meaning to try North Italia for ages and finally took a trip for lunch. Everything was shared and nothing disappointed. It was my daughter's 12th birthday and we loved everything from the mussels and shrimp scampi to the zucchini chips and spaghetti. We are from the east valley so we wanted a taste of what's opening in Gilbert in the future. Can't wait to be frequent visitors!
