Great service wonderful atmosphere. I love your patio! Best Caesar salad west of the Mississippi!
Love the food and service. The noise level needs to be toned down.
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.
the food like alway"s was great. calamari, mussels, and meatballs are fantastic, with grilled bread, plus a loaded menu.
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!
Excellent menu and great vibe. We loved it
Thank you! We are happy to hear you enjoyed everything!
Great food, good atmosphere, did I mention great food
Waited an hour and 15 minutes and the food was cold
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.
A friend and I had Bolognese with meat sauce. It was wonderful.
The food is great and the service is great. I love the atmosphere.
I think the prices are fair
Our server Hallie was amazing. Very knowledgeable and super attentive. Caesar salad with grilled chicken and chicken was warm. Yummy
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.
Excellent thank you absolutely love your restaurant
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.
We are sorry to hear about your experience. We would love to hear more. Please feel free to call us at the restaurant and ask to speak with a manager if you would like to discuss further. (480)-948-2055.
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!
Thank you so much! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed everything about your experience!
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.
North is one of our favorite restaurants and we loved being able to eat there again. The food was fantastic and our server was great. She even brought extra basil for my husbands pizza. It was a perfect day to be back in the real world.
Great good...great service...favorite was the Italian Butter cake!
Food and service were great.
Thank you! We are happy to hear you had a great time.
Always enjoy the Fox Properties, but North Italia was particularly satisfying for a weekend brunch, good ambience and the food (particularly the short rib hash) was sensational! Recommend it, go to have fun and relax
Thank you so much for the kind words. Hope to see you again soon!
One of my favorite restaurants. Food is spectacular and service is outstanding.
Thank you so much! We are happy to hear you had a great time.
The girls met and caught up on life after not seeing each other for 40 years. Not rushed, just laid back conversation while enjoying terrific food and perfect weather.
Thank you for the kind words. We are happy to hear that you were able to enjoy your time together!
Creative menu, well executed prep and presentation of delicious food. Back patio is quiet and peaceful for a very fine lunch meeting.
Patio seating on a beautiful day made the meal so much more enjoyable. Chef board was a great start!
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 hosted out-of-town guests @ North Italia and they loved it.
We sat on the patio for brunch. The farmer's scramble is a great dish and their version of a Paloma is delicious!!
We were seated right away even though we were 30 minutes early for our reservation. The hostess was friendly, our server was amazing, and our table never had empty glasses or plates. The food was outstanding. Continues to by one of our favorite restaurants.
Very good waitress. Food and presentation good. Pizza is really good.
The food was very good, as was the service.
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.
We were able to get a table at the last minute and were so thankful that we did. The food was great, service was timely and friendly and the salads were amazing. Will make sure to book ahead next time because they were busy.
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.
Thank you for the kind words and wonderful review! So glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. See you back soon, cheers!
We were sitting on the patio. There was a strong smell of garbage or sewer. Very uncomfortable
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!
The food, as always- was great. Our waitress Sarah was especially friendly and helpful. The only thing we missed were our crispy potatoes! For some reason they weren’t being served today.
Waitress was rude food was made wrong and took a half hour to be remade finally a Mgr came out he salvaged what was left and did what a good Mgr should do .without him I would never have come back.
