    Had reservations and still had to wait way past the time to be seated. It was my anniversary and they said us and a horrible seat with a pole. Food was over cooked and hard bread was super hard we didn't even order it we thought it came with our food which we ended up paying for anyway my wife and I were very disappointed because we have heard such great things about this place don't think I would ever go back

    This is one of our favorite places! Food is consistently delicious. We had outstanding service from Oliver last night. I prefer not to go on a busy weekend night. Unfortunately, some of our food came out lukewarm. Bronzino, usually a favorite, was mushy. My fellow diners loved their pizza and pasta!

    It was busy but we had an amazing table. We were celebrating our anniversary and the staff congratulated us. The waiter made arrangements for my allergy and checked 3 times that there was no contamination. We’ve come here so many times but this experience was the best and was really special.

    I usually have nothing but nice things to say about North restaurant and granted hey we’re a bit busy Saturday, but 20 wait people must’ve walked by before I flagged someone down for water. How hard it to say “We’ll be right with you”? Once we started service and ordered two Caesar’s and a small plate eggplant Parmesan things weee better but I had to ask for salt and pepper and the check. I hope our next dining experience is better.

    We were a little disappointed with the service and the timing of the Main Course. Drinks came in a timely manner and appetizers were fine. We were told by our waiter that he would put in our main course choices to the kitchen after our appetizers were brought to the table. Either our waiter forgot to put in our order or the kitchen staff didn’t make our food. We waited between 45 minutes to an hour after the appetizers. Two of the four entrees were barely warm. We asked the waiter to split the bill with all the drinks going on to one check and specified which credit card the drinks were supposed to go on. Of course what we asked for didn’t happen and had to be reversed. It was a frustrating dinner. Not sure if we will return.

    North has always been one of our favorite restaurants…but, not last night! Salad and soup were fine but then after an hour, the manager came over and apologized for the delay in serving our main dishes. After 25 more minutes, our meals arrived. The pizza was burned, the steak dish was cold and pesto chicken came instead of the salmon. After waiting 1.5 hours for our food, my guest didn’t want to wait for her salmon to be re-made so she didn’t eat. I couldn’t eat the cold steak medallions with risotto and my husband picked at his burned pizza. They offered us a free dessert. They didn’t charge us for the pesto or the steak. We left hungry and disappointed. It used to be such a great place….So sad!

    It was overly packed and they were understaffed. We waited 20 minutes for a table, even though we had a reservation. Once we were seated, it took a long time to get food and drinks.

    J Bill was our server. He is great! J Bill made recommendations which were spot on. We had the muscles on the appetizer list and I did as side of pasta to make it a full entrée. It was excellent!! My cousin had the Caesar salad he absolutely loved it and he did a pasta Bolognese. My husband had meatballs with pasta which is not on their menu but they will make it for you and he had the arugula and fennel salad which she did not share with me so it must’ve been pretty good. I am looking forward to dining with North again.

    Sadly this experience was not great. In fact, was rather disappointing. From the start, the host seemed bothered by the fact that we had a reservation and that the restaurant was busy. Zero eye contact and lacked good customer service skills. Got sat and we were able to put our drinks and appetizer orders in we wanted to wait a little bit because in the past the restaurant had brought out everything at once so we wanted to enjoy before heading to the show. Got our appetizers and about 5 minutes later we put our dinner orders in, around 6:05pm. We did order a second round of drinks around 6:30 or so and were still waiting on entrees; busy night so wasn’t expecting food right away. However at 7:10pm we still did not have our food and our server was no where to be found. We were approached by a gentleman in all black stating “he was sorry for the delay” but at that point we had to leave without eating our entrees. The show started at 8:00pm so we thought making a dinner reservation at 5:45pm gave us plenty of time….not in this case. They did comp the appetizers, which we did not ask them too, but ended up paying for our (2) rounds of drinks and we left at 7:20 pm.

    Steak was very hard and chewy and way too salty. Truffle risotto had no truffle flavor and was also too salty. Salt was the only flavor that came through. Server never offered a second glass of wine.

    Lively neighborhood restaurant for good Italian food and friendly service in a casual atmosphere. Also a nice outdoor patio, weather permitting. Not 5 star like the two more upscale Italian restaurants across the road. Yet the prices are very similar, and the drinks are not as generously poured at North. Good food but not memorable.

    Overall was disappointed. I guess the decor/ambience is supposed to be clean/ modern/ sleek, but there were so many tables in a big space with no partitions that I felt like I was in a school cafeteria. I will say our server was very good and tried hard to give good suggestions, even checking w/ someone else about an appropriate wine pairing. I ordered the mushroom stuffed pasta and my husband ordered a gluten-free pasta dish which was "ok but spicy." It took a long time to get our food, and then my pasta was undercooked, though I will say the sauce was delicious. I ate it anyway because I was really hungry (we had a 7 pm reservation). Surprised the place was so busy on a Thursday night, but that seems true throughout Tucson.

    We arrived a bit early and were seated right away at a lovely table as we requested in the patio close to a fire. Professional and friendly service and the food was innovative, carefully prepared, and tasty. Our favorite is the zucca appetizer…razor thin slices of zucchini flash fried in olive oil until crispy enough to give a sweet and salty crunch before dissolving.
