    North Italia is one of our favorite restaurants - super delicious food and service. It’s a little noisy but it’s a fun hubbub. I love the ambience.

    Been here several times, but typically only for lunch. Food was very bland this evening like nothing was seasoned. No special accommodation was made even though the reservation notes mentioned it was our anniversary. Had to wait 10 minutes before we were seated even though we had reservations. Waitress was very kind.

    Food was great. I ordered the beef tenderloin Marsala. I filled up on appetizers so I had a couple of bite of my dinner. When the waitress came to get the dishes, I was on the phone so I didn’t get a chance to tell her to pack the leftovers and she took it without asking. When we got the bill, I asked where it was and she said that it was tossed. She did offer to make another one but we couldn’t wait.

    Meh. Overpriced..I ordered the "seafood" pasta. 2 overcooked shrimps 1 calamari...like really? They ran out of pasta. Its ridiculously a joke...sadly tje the joke was at my expense. I would not recommend that this place for a good dinner. I would not recommend this place to anybody, I rather go to Del Mar location

    We enjoyed the friendliness and expertise of Colin our server. Our main entrees were excellent, the Seasonal Vegetable Salad with Salmon and the Beef Tenderloin Marsala, excellent. In past, we have always loved, just loved the originally of their calamari with lemon jest and a very nice vinaigrette dressing over arugula. We ordered it at each visit. Now the calamari is served with a marinara just like every other restaurant, and it is truly a disappointment. I hope they go back to their original recipe ... it was unique and delicious!

    My wife & I, had a wonderful lunch experience. We were seated at a great area in order enjoy our lunch & conduct our business as well. The food & drinks (The Pig Pizza & Italian Salad with Agua Penna water), was served promptly & tasted excellent. Our server, Kelly was outstanding and the surrounding staff appeared cordial & supportive. Thank you for another wonderful dining experience

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a special Mid-afternoon lunch. We had salads and their special garlic toast that were absolutely delicious. My server encouraged me to try a wine I’d never had before, even gave me a sample to try before committing. It was the perfect accompaniment to my salad. Because my husband is hard of hearing, we appreciated the volume of the music. I will be returning and bringing visitors to the city, it’s that worthy.

    I had heard about the restaurant multiple times, and we went last night to try put. The food leaves a lot of desire for good and tasty food. We ordered calamari for an appetizer, which was dry and without flavor; then my husband ordered short ribs, and the potatoes were dry and without taste, and the short ribs were very dry. I ordered a pizza, and it was an ok pizza. I feel like last night was. My first and last time we were trying this place.

    We had a wonderful lunch with our clients at North Italia Fashion Valley. We were greeted by a lovely hostess and sat at an excellent outdoor spot. It was too loud nor too stuffy for our meeting. It was a great atmosphere to have an appropriate discussion with our guests. We were fortunate enough to be served by Colin, who is, by far, one of the best servers we have ever had. Colin was intentional, welcoming, patient, and polite throughout our dining. Our guests were also thoroughly impressed by His service, which we appreciate. Two plates that stood out were their brunch special: Beef Tenderloin and Coffee Cake. The tenderloin was succulent and tasty, and their Coffee Cake was excellent (my favorite dessert). All in all, the food, atmosphere, and especially the service provided by Colin and the staff were exceptional, making our dining experience a special moment with our guests. Thank you
