    En general bien, simplemente bien. El personal de servicio no estuvo atento y había que llamarles para que atendieran. No tienen el sentido de preocuparse por el servicio al cliente excelente, no tienen idea de que significa. La comida simplemente buena, nada excepcional. Un lugar para pasar un rato agradable. Solo eso.

    Server was awful. Almost non existent and hard to get drinks. Took about 15 minutes to get them after we waited about 8 minutes to get her attention and order them. While I was in the middle of eating she asked me if I wanted a box while she cleared everyone’s plates before I was even finished. Best service is at the bar. More experienced staff there.

    Good place to feel safe, sitting outdoors. Food tasty and portions good size. Must have been short staffed, though, since we had long wait for reservation (table set-up), our food (kitchen must have been overwhelmed), etc. Server was energetic and pleasant.Best not to go on a weekend -- they probably cannot handle the crowds.

    Our meal at North Italia was wonderful. Our food was delicious and our waitress was very kind. She was a little inattentive at times, but her charm made up for this. There were no complaints with the food and drink. The only downside was that we had a reservation and we asked if we wanted to sit at a high top. When we said no, we were seated in the middle of the restaurant with a sea of empty tables around us. We would have liked a booth, but the hostess' attitude made this seem like we were inconvincing her when the restaurant was mostly empty. Had we not had a reservation, this would have seem reasonable, but we were early to our time.

    The noise level was too much. We could not hear one another without yelling. Not the best way to carry on a conversation. We were at dinner, not at a night club. We had not been there for a while and now remember why. With everything else being great, the noise level will keep us from returning soon. Maybe lunch will be better. I would recommend this restaurant with a warning about the noise level.

    North Italia continues to be a good choice for a meal. While there are some obvious changes since the pandemic, the food quality, presentation and the service continue to be better than most Italian restaurants in the area. However, one issue I've always had is the noise, just too loud. If you can, sit outside, or as far from the bar as possible.

    The pasta dish we had was somewhat blah. Ravioli, cherry tomatoes, basic pasta sauce. Expected more from an italian restaurant. Hangar steak was good but used to be served with a mushroom risotto not the breaded potato pancake. Asparagus was overcooked. This is not the North Italia I recall from a year ago.

    Food pretty good. Waiter pretty good. Hostess and bus boy not good. Overall 3/5 if restaurant improves upon a minor but critical element of any restaurant, their hostess — and her ability to balance reservations and first come, first served people.

    I went for my best friends birthday and really enjoyed it. But, there was a couple next to us making out, and almost sitting on top of each other that it was uncomfortable. Not the restaurants fault, just an awkward experience. Our waitress was extremely friendly and the food and drinks were amazing !

    Our food was very good. It was easy finding a place to park the car. Our waiter, Manny, was EXCELLENT!! He made suggestions for us for our Dessert. We chose the Bombolino's. They were very good. Manny was right!! Restaurant was very busy when we arrived. I would suggest a Reservation if possible. Even though it was busy. We received our food very quickly. Highly recommend.

    As always the food & service was excellent. The noise could be somewhat controlled by installation of sound panels, placed strategically on the open truss ceiling. Noise aside, North will remain on our list of Tucson’s favorites.

    Fourth visit, and everything was still outstanding. This trip we brought our son and his girlfriend from Genoa Italy. She was as impressed as we have been, and she is an excellent cook in her own right! Enough said! Be aware that the restaurant is a bit loud when busy, not your quiet intimate setting. But the food and service is spectacular.

    There calamari is always good. So is the rest of their food. I wouldn't sit inside, as it very noisy and lacking any ambience. However, due to Covid, I always sit outside, and even though it is a bit warm in July, it is very pleasant.

    Our reservation was for 5:45, but we were seated when we arrived at 5:25. Our server, whose name I didn't get, was wonderful. Attentive, answered any questions we had and made sure we got a comped dessert for our anniversary. We were prepared to spend more, but the value was excellent. Will certainly go again on a non-special day.
