    Restaurant was very busy Thursday evening after 7:15 PM. Server was excellent, food a little slow in coming to the table. Appetizers were so-so, entrees including pizza were good. My wife works at Fashion Valley, so the location is ideal for meeting her after work. We keep coming back; our overall rating usually varies between very good to excellent.

    Garantía…. Pero hoy lo visité con mis tres hijos menores de 8 años y la pasta tardo 1 hora. Pasta Alfredo y a la mantequilla, ocasionando enojo por los niños debido al hambre. Cabe mencionar que el restaurante estaba vacío por qué no era hora de comida ni de cena.

    The staff is always welcoming. From the front of the hose to the back they have it together. It’s nice to see them work as a team to satisfy the clients. The food has always been good, the serving sizes very from day to day sometimes. For a quality meal and great service, I do recommend North Italia.

    Visited this restaurant for the first time to celebrate my friend's birthday over lunch. Loved the large open and airy ambiance. Nice to have both indoor outdoor choices for seating. Our server was attentive and we appreciated her menu suggestions. The meal of truffle infused garlic bread, farm salad, pasta, and dessert was delicious. The noise level didn't interfere with our conversation. I will return to try another menu item!

    Our food was very good, love the Northern Italian style of food. Haley the server was friendly and nice. Overall a great experience, especially for a restaurant located in a mall. My only negative would be the prices of the wine by the glass seems high. But the do have a happy hour 4-6pm that makes for some great alternatives.

    I have dined here many times and have had a stellar experience. The food is always consistent. We had a server who either was new or just didn’t know the menu, no problem that she was unfamiliar but she also didn’t handle being uninformed well. I asked about modifications options for food allergies, she seemed confused instead of reassuring us she’d find out and let us know. She wasn’t timely with her check ins, many people around us who sat down after us had their orders taken and were served food before us. She seemed frazzled and a bit spacey to be frank. I worked in food service for over a decade and always give hospitality folks the benefit of the doubt, but this server seemed to be lacking training and any sort of confidence in her ability to adequately perform her job. We sat on the patio and had (small) dogs with us and at one point both dogs had jumped up to sit in laps prior to any food being served. And make expediter/food delivery person said “you need to put your animals on the ground it’s a food issue.” And motioned with his hands downward and walked away. His tone, approach and dismissive attitude took us back a bit. No problem following the rules, we understand. But we are adults and paying customers and I don’t need to be commanded like a child what to do. Overall, it may be a while before I return. The prices are quite high for the mid-level service experience.
