    Delicious food. Even better service. Well worth the price. Chicken parm but ask for the vodka sauce (adds a kick). 🤝

    Only negative was the hostesses coming back every 5 minutes with their iPad monitoring our table status. Was really excessive. Messed with my experience as I felt like I was being watched and rushed to finish and turnover the table.

    With the exception of the Brussels sprouts and simple salad, the food was underwhelming at every turn. Sauce on eggplant parm extremely spicy. Zucchini chips greasy. Pizza flabby. The truffle garlic bread was soaked in butter and oil. Not going back.

    My husband and I went to North Italia for our Valentine’s Day and had an amazing time. Every worker we spoke with was incredibly welcoming, Kind and accommodating, the food was fantastic, and the ambiance was fun but not too loud :) one of our favorite downtown spots!

    Really enjoyed the food, the drinks and the service was great. Was disappointing to be given the worst table in the restaurant, right by the kitchen door, even though I mentioned that it was our anniversary in our reservation.

    It was our first time at North Italia on 2nd Street. I just want to say Edith our server was amazing. We let her know it was our first time and her food and drink recommendations were on spot. We started with the Grilled Bread and Olive oil which was so good i really enjoyed it. She helped us with our salad options which the Little Gem CAESAR is so yummy, the dressing was all over the lettuce leaves which we enjoyed that very much. Entrees were the Spicy Rigatoni Vodka and the Chicken Parmesan with parmesan rigatoni. These plates were very yummy and the serving size are good portion sizes. At the end we spoke to the GM Matt to let him know we enjoyed everything there and he was just as awesome as his staff. We will be coming back and will definitely recommend this place.

    Usually we are pleased but not last night with food. Meatball app remains a great offering with polenta on side. Side of toasted bread with generous balsamic was also very good. However, the chicken parm and accompanying pasta were off: parm was served lukewarm and was returned; pasta with white sauce had a peculiar taste. Pasta bolognese entree was too heavy, no refinement. Plenty of meat though. I’m disappointed that my only preferred dessert at North, tiramisu, is no longer delightfully dotted with crackly little chocolate (although is pictured with them in promos). Ricky our server was pleasant and attentive. We liked him.

    We shared the burrata appetizer and it was delicious. My first 2 choices for my entree were sold out( it was only 6:30pm). I had the salmon entree which was very good, but I was disappointed that I didn’t get my first 2 choices.

    Our server (E.D.) pretty much ignored us. Food was great, per usual. We were seated immediately upon arriving to our reservation, in a booth, as requested. My only complaint was that our server seemed annoyed that she was at work and did not check on us once after our food was served. It won’t keep me from returning, for now, but it was disappointing.

    Meatballs very cold in center and no marinara as per usual and per menu. They wanted to charge for a small side of marinara to make up for it. WTH? Way overcooked salmon, exterior tough fish and super dry inside. Sounds crazy I know. Raw, tough broccolini in giant stalks and unable to cut with a knife. Same for the shirt rib….overcooked, dry and tough. There was definitely a theme this night. After years of quality food and service, this location has rapidly declined so this has been the case the last 3 to 4 visits. We won’t be back.

    We loves our first visit here for our anniversary. Our server was really attentive and helpful, without being “too” present. He was able to advise us on some choices and answer all questions about the menu. Cozy atmosphere, and seated by the window off 2nd street, the view was great. We appreciated that they had many dishes outside the usual Italian fare. Elevated, but simple. I had the Tuscan Chicken and it was delicious. And the grilled bread & olive oil appetizer was very good. Stayed for dessert, and shared the Ginger Butter Cake, served with vanilla gelato. Wonderful. We’ll be back for sure.
