    For me, the Ricotta Cavatelli was fabulous. For my husband, Chicken Parmesan was too salty.

    Ambiance was wonderful but I found the food and service to be lacking. It was a Sunday before the holiday so I do extend some grace. I found pizza of the day lacking and also had the seafood pasta which lacked flavor. Cocktails were also on the expensive side for the quality.

    Hopefully, it was just an “off night.” While the food, when it came, was delicious, there was a sizeable delay between salad and entrees. In recognition of this situation, we were given a dessert.

    I’ve been to North Italia 5 or 6 times and it’s always been good! This time was lunch with a friend. I had the Italian Farm Salad and changed the dressing to Gorgonzola vinaigrette from the oregano vinaigrette and it’s just what it needed to really give it a lot of flavor! It was light but definitely filling with a large portion! I don’t know our servers name but he was great. He was very attentive but never obnoxious or in the way and even said he never likes to pressure his guests to orders so take as long as we wanted and flag him down when we were ready. I will definitely be back there soon and more than likely order the same thing!

    Overall a great place to enjoy a special meal. As this was valentine's day, there was a large crowd, but neither service or quality declined. We were seated a few minutes earlier than our reservation time, our server was top notch, and the quality of food was excellent. Only drawback at this location is the dining area is one huge room and was a bit louder than we prefer, though not enough to detract from our overall great experience. Thank you for a wonderful night.

    By far the worst service experience I’ve had in a long time. We had been seated for at least 5 minutes before anyone came to greet us. I could tell that we were going to be forgotten about based on where we were sitting. Our server finally came around and I asked to start with bread, and before we could order anything else, she walked away from us and did not return for 15 minutes. When she came back we were able to put in our appetizer order, and she started to walk away again before we ordered entrees- this time I was able to stop her from walking away. It took 45 minutes for our entrees to come out, we were physically upset, and there was no apology for the delay whatsoever. Our server made eye contact with me several times, yet made no effort to approach us. The food was good, but you can get good food at so many other restaurants that also have high quality service. I have eaten at North several times over the years, but I will not be returning after this terrible experience.

    First time here, and really wanted to try it out. I enjoyed the food, but we warned that ever time I asked for recommendations the server always suggested the more expensive items. Felt a bit awkward, but would ordered what looked good to me. We ordered their house specially, which is the pasta bolognese, and a spicy sausage pizza. Both items were tasty, but nothing out of the ordinary. Their mussels and olive oil bread were a good way to start our meal. The Fashion Valleu location wasn’t as inviting with the layout or decor, but it was an enjoyable evening. Not wow, but okay.

    El ambiente, comida (pizza, pasta, postres) y servicio fue bueno. Fuimos a celebar tres cumpleanos y todos estabamos muy agusto. Definitivamente vamos a volver. Las sangias rojas nos hibieran gustado un poco mas dulces y en una presentacion mejor. Las trajeron las sangias en un vaso hightball solo con 1/2 rebana de naranja adentro. Nos huviera gustado mas en copa y con mas fruta y alguna decoracion. El mesero fue amable y nos sugeria platillos y postres.

    We brought a friend there for a birthday lunch recently. My husband and I split the kale salad which we always enjoy. Then he ordered the short rib with pasta and I ordered the prosciutto pizza. His had a delicious savory flavor and my pizza had a subtle sweetness due to the mission figs. Our friend had the beet salad which was beautifully presented. She also had the spicy vodka pasta. Everyone loved what they ordered. We’ve enjoyed every meal we’ve had over the last few years since finding North Italia.

    Mal servicio, desatento; llegamos a más 9:30 era. La reserva y a las diez ya nos tomo la orden y nos dijo que ya no podían servirnos refresco solo ahí. Pedimos te y miel nunca llego tuvimos que levantarnos a pedirle al mesero ( recordarle y finalmente nos levantamos). La comida regular, el filete marsala lo salaron de mas. La pizza de La Niña aceptable. En general no es tan bueno para lo que cobran y el servicio deja mucho que desear. No volvería.

    Food and atmosphere were very good and we will definitely return. Only gave 3 starts for Value - but that's just about everywhere and not negative towards North Italia. Would highly recommend - and order the Cacio e Pepe Arancini small plate - sooo good.

    The fried calamari was not well breaded, and was very greasy. The half chicken was good, but the polenta was unrecognizable. It was swimming in a large bed of cream.

    We ordered Brussel Sprouts, which had pine nuts. My daughter has a nut allergy. When we told the server, she offered to have them remade without nuts. We were very appreciative that the server responded so quickly to fix the order.

    Service was worst I we have ever had and we frequent this location a ton. It's one of my favorite restaurants. I am very familiar with the service and the quality of food and know what to expect. This night was totally opposite of the positive experiences I've had in the past. Also, the music was turned io so loud we could not hear each other speak even sitting right next to each other in a booth. We couldn't hear what each other was saying. Why does it need to be up so loud? It's not a club it was 4:30 in the afternoon.
