    We dine at North regularly. Last night (it was packed) and it wasn't great. We ordered mussels that we had to send back because they were flavorless, One of our meals came out and it was the wrong item, my order came out without one of the elements that I specifically asked for and our waiter was very nice but not very attentive (I realize that it was busy) The meal took a long time to come etc... Just not a great dining experience but as always, we love being at North. Hopefully it will be better next time!

    Reservation was acknowledged and we were seated as requested- a group of six golf gals. Hostess was very friendly. Server approached table, never introduced himself, set menus down and wine list. I inquired about two different wines, unfortunately server was unable to explain anything. I could have asked to find someone else to obtain info but it was just a lunch and not critical. We asked for water and ordered wine and other beverages. 20 minutes later after several inquiries, beverages arrived from several different servers. Please clean your wine glasses- water spotted stems are so unappealing. Entrees arrived as requested and food was good. Salads were fine not remarkable, pizza special was good and meatball sandwich was enjoyed by those who ordered. This is average fare, served by young inexperienced staff( our experience) yet very convenient in the foothills. For my $$ Tavolino and Wildflower are my go to lunch spots.

    Have loved going to North for years, and always enjoyed half-price wine night on Sundays. Last time we were there on Sunday we were told "Nope, half-price wine night has moved to Mondays." This time we went on Monday, sat at our table and were told "Nope, half-price wine night only applies if you sit in the front patio bar area on Monday during Happy Hour." The new owners really don't seem to want to keep their old customers! We don't want to sit in the bar area at a high-top or around a fire pit or be restricted to happy hour. Bring back the real half-price wine night! Food and service were excellent as usual, but the wine debacle cast a pall over the evening.

    We have dined at North Italia before in both Scottsdale and Gilbert and have, of course, come to expect great food and service based on our positive experiences. I must say, though, that the Tucson location went above and beyond in providing something wonderful to address some dietary concerns. Both our server and the manager were so thoughtful and attentive, and made sure that my meal came out just right (and my husband's Chicken Parm was delicious as well). It was not only greatly appreciated, but very impressive! Everything else about our evening was simply delightful, from our welcome at the front desk, to the bar service as we waited, to the lovely seating on the outdoor patio - perfect for enjoying sunset in Tucson! Thank you again to North Italia Tucson for giving us such a special evening!

    Wait time for food was far too long. With a 4:45 reservation with children, our dinner wasn't served until 6:30. Food was tasty, server was understand and friendly however didn't expect our meal to finish so late.

    The Food at North is typically good and our server was great- professional and attentive without being intrusive. However, we always debate going to North because it is so noisy. I came for lunch with a friend whom I not seen in awhile and we could barely hear each other speak. The host and waiter both apologized about the noise level. North really needs to address this! The cool, industrial vibe is not worth the noise. Prices have gotten higher and the portions smaller, like everywhere, but $85 (including a good tip) for a salad, pizza and carafe of wine is just too much!

    An excellent, if high-end, choice for Italian food when in Tucson. We had an excellent time. My only issue was the noise -- the inside got more than a bit loud. But the rest of the experience was wonderful! Also, if you are into top-end Italian wine and are willing to spend, this is the place. We had a very nice super-Tuscan for the high two-digits. However, we could have spent well into the three digits, had we had a mind to do so. Those expensive wines were so tempting! Alas, we didn't have the budget to drink them. Recommended.

    We wanted to experience Sonoran Restaurant Week at North. We enjoyed the quality of the food and the friendly service. Although the restaurant was totally booked on a Saturday night, we had a great service experience with Erica and enjoyed our deliberately served meal over an hour and a half. We enjoyed sharing a bottle of wine and dining on the patio. North is an excellent restaurant and a definite delight to experience for lunch or dinner.
