North is a great place for any special occasion. We enjoyed the appetizers and they had a great selection of local bears. They also have a good selection of wine as well.

My friends and I are from Indiana. The last time I came to your restaurant, I was with my husband and we were visiting family. I said the next time I came to AZ, I'm coming back! So, I brought my girlfriends this time! It was all wonderful and I can't wait to return!

Great evening - Leah was our server - very knowledgeable and friendly. Treated us to dessert & champagne for our anniversary <3 I just Love the atmosphere at North. I always order the homemade Sangria. The pizza and salad and appetizers never disappoint. I love to people-watch so I am glad they seated us on the patio. I love Kierland and North Italia is one of my fave spots to dine.

Based on my past experience with North Italia, I eagerly looked forward to treating my sister, who was visiting from out of state, to what I mistakenly thought would be a delightful experience. We were seated outside on the patio, as I had requested. There were six millennials seated at a table next to us. They were only drinking, apparently, while everyone else was dining. They were extremely loud, to the point that my sister and I were not able to hear anything but the outrageous noise and behavior from their table. They simply did not care that they were ruining everyone’s experience with their rowdy and immature behavior. I had to make two different trips to speak to the manager for help, only to have an assistant manager finally go to their table to joke around with them! She could be heard telling them that they really wanted this rude group to stay!! She offered them a choice of tables inside as though they were deserving of such special treatment, all the while my sister and I were getting more annoyed! Then the assistant manager had the nerve to act like I didn’t have the right to say anything , and all but rolled her eyes at me! That is when I got very angry! Then they sent another manager over to apologize, but only after I informed our waiter, who was terrific, that I would not be paying for the miserable experience ....and I didn’t! My sister and I are 63 and 64 years old and we were treated this way BECAUSE we are older! Turns out that the management team was the same age bracket as the young brats causing all the trouble! In other words, the asylum was being run by the inmates! I cannot stand young adults who clearly feel they are entitled to ruin someone else’s evening!

Went there for house-made pasta and it was excellent. The bolognese was meaty and flavorful.

One of my go to places for lunch with my elderly father. We like to go and sit outside with the puppy and have a nice meal. This time around we were actually redirected and sat at BaRNorth. Their bar and patio location next door. We were served all the same terrific food as we would have if we sat in the actual North Italia patio, but we had a much more laid back and roomier table.

A lively restaurant. We were just looking for a salad and a thin crust pizza. It was tasty. Sat outside I front of an Uber stop. Had lots of headlights shining at us.

Busy at early hours (6-7pm arrival) but empty by 930pm - Il Postino still hopping. Bar service good, dinner service very good. Charcuterie plate very disappointing - only one meat - prosciutto and only 4 pieces of that. Seemed under portioned - would not re-order or recommend - although the relishes and cutneys they had on the board were excellent. Pizza good - a little more burnt on crust that expected. Bolognese Sauce sweet and tomatoey - waiter did offer to assist and bring some cheese and peppers to try improving the flavor. Would not do that again. Pasta was stuck together and not al dente.

Excellent and friendly service. Creative menu. Good food. Just a real frustration like all businesses in Kierland to find parking. It will be more so when winter visitors come. I like North, but parking is a real consideration for wanting to go there often or not.

Our meal was outstanding. The service was great! My husband ordered the bollognese and it was authentic with the 3 different meats. I️ ordered a chicken dish with spinach and pine nuts in a cream sauce. I couldn’t believe how much chicken there was. Both were delicious!

Got there early for happy hour and 75% of the tables were open...yet were seated right by the front door with ALL the traffic of people brushing up against my chair as they walked in. Not a run experience. Wait staff at that time was short so we had to wait about 5-8 min before anyone even came over to the table and put water down or asked for a drink order.

The food here is always spot on. I always order the Bolognese and it is spot on. Actually - I've never heard of a poor meal at this place.

Service is usually very good.

If there are any drawbacks, be prepared it is extremely loud. I have to be careful who I take to dinner because it's difficult to hear. Don't let that dissuade you, just be conscious of it. This is not a relaxing, quiet, restaurant.
