Our party ordered a variety of dishes. Several got the fresh pasta - tortellini with chicken, and bolognese. Others ordered the scallops, bass, and chicken parmigiana. They were all excellent. Also a nice atmosphere - we enjoy coming here often.

The food is consistently disappointing and not what it once was. We were regular customers for a long while, but there are much better restaurants in Tucson that combine good food and ambiance. Our friends and neighbors share our mindset.

The creamy polenta and braised shoot ribs were Amazing together. The pesto was so smooth and Rich we had to finish every bite. Should have taken photos but we couldn't wait to taste reach dish.

The food was great as usual. Service was slow, it was really crowded because they had a promotion going. The server did not apply the promotion to our ticket, had to ask, which seemed shady, not what I’d expect from a premium restaurant like North.

It was July 4 and it seemed like everyone was waiting for a table. I was glad I had reservations, but concerned that service would be slow. How wrong I was! Service was excellent, food served quickly, and it all was delicious.

Nice menu with choices for all. Prices are reasonable. Portions a bit small.

Can be very busy and noisy. Server seemed to have more tables than she could handle (late delivery of wine, etc.).

Consistently delicious food, great wines, and a perfect location make North Italia our go-to treat. Especially wonderful (and much quieter) if you can snag a table on the patio, complete with misters in the summertime!

It was very festive because of the holiday, but the staff was prepared and helpful. I had a lovely table outside in a corner, so avoided most of the noise, which is unbearable inside. Good food and good service.

I booked a reservation for a table on the patio in the shade. We were put in a table that within 10 minutes was in the sun. After a while, our nice waitress got us moved to the shade so that was better. It was a holiday and they were busy but everything was very slow. This has happened before to us here. Food is always excellent though. So go if you are not in a hurry.

Be sure to make a reservation, but be aware that even with a reservation, you’ll have to wait. Food is quite good but it’s very, very noisy.

This is the 3rd time we've come here....none of them a great visit. This time it was a 30 minute wait with a reservation. Our server was attentive, so that was a first. Having worked in the restaurant business, I do not understand--probably never will, the amount of your staff that just stands by the Hostess station. There were 6 people PLUS the Hostess standing there while we waited for our table. Doing absolutely nothing. It makes for a cluttered area and always makes me wonder why we can't be seated at any of the empty tables. If they truly have nothing to do, they should not be on the floor.

Quality restaurant: great service and reliably good food. If you want to talk to your stablemates, I would suggest not going on a holiday! I always love the mussels, and the Caesar salad was the best I've had in a long time!

We went to celebrate the Fourth of July and enjoyed our lunch very much. We had the chefs board and a mushroom and onion pizza. Both were delicious. Since we were having a barbecue later in the day we decided to eat light. The food was served promptly and our drinks were refilled without our having to ask. I would recommend North for either lunch or dinner. We have never had a bad experience there.

We love everything about North, but we always choose to eat outdoors. It is too noisy inside to be enjoyable. This time it was my husband’s birthday so he had a free tiramisu which pleased him. We ate the Chef’s Board for an appetizer. It was very good. And we had a delightful waitress who was serving her first night. Everything was perfect.

Our server, Owen, was fantastic. Earnest, attentive, knowledgeable. Food was uneven this visit. Something was amiss with the red sauce and that was a component of 3 entrees on the table. But Owen did everything he could to make everyone happy.

They had one of the best calamari, and tiramisu in town. For some reason they change them. Now they have one of the worst in town. You have to ask every little thing they were available before. Sorry for them.
