The menu wasn’t too large, which to me means they’ve mastered their menu items. Service was top notch the moment we got seated. They sat us right at our reservation time. Our server was very attentive to our table, constantly checking on us to make sure we were good. The food was excellent. Would definitely come back.

Food ws served cold. Pizza was over cooked making it very hard to chew. Not the same as it was before covid. Waited 25 minutes for the pizza.

The desserts were definitely the best part I was a little bummed. About the fried calamari it was bland and not crispy. But the funghi pizza and tus an salad was delicious!

The service is slow. It’s understandable if they were busy but there were quite a few vacant tables that didn’t justify the lag. Also, their chicken tenders off their kids menu aren’t true chicken tenders. It’s breaded breast meat cut into strips.

We have enjoyed lunch many times at this restaurant. Hopefully last night was an anomaly. We had very very slow service. The food was good. Unfortunately, there was a piece of Brillo pad in my pasta dish. It really spoiled the meal for me overall. The waiter could not have been nicer about everything. Especially disappointing because we were introducing this restaurant to our friends. Needless to say, I doubt they will go back.

Food was amazing, however service was slow. We had the pizza with prosciutto, figs and goat cheese, and the seasonal veggie salad, they were delicious! Hope service improves as this is a really nice place.

We eat here weekly so this feedback it meant to improve the experience. North Italia need to work on its consistency and the fundamentals. If sitting on patio, food is typically lukewarm (seems like it was waiting for a runner for a while), house bread is almost always stale, salad portions / taste have a lot of variation, you always have to ask for salt and pepper (why not proactively give it to your guests), and requests like parmesan or red pepper aren’t readily available for the servers, requiring them to go to the kitchen and make a request, which typically takes 5-10 minutes while your food gets cold. This are all easy fixes, North Italia!

This is my second time there, didn’t like it the 1st time but thought I’d give it another chance since it’s always packed! Service was way below average and very slow. We asked for Parmesan ,salt/pepper shakers (we ended up getting them ourselves from the neighboring table) and chili flakes, got them after we almost finished our meals. Food was cold and bland . Never visiting it again . Oh and the table next to us waited almost half an hour for their desert and 2 cups of tea !

Some awkwardness in the initial check in process for the reservation and lining up an inside table left a bad feeling for the start of the meal and was definitely not a warm and welcoming environment. Luckily, once seated, the server, food and drinks were all top notch.

Food excellent, service not good. We ordered an entree but when we were told there was no burrata cheese inside the burrata ravioli , we cancelled and ordered the burrata caprese
Appetizer, Along with zuppa chips. We asked for an aoli dip, and about 30 min later the ravioli came which we said we cancelled it. Server came over disturbed that we said it was cancelled and never came back to check on us or gave aoli.

I’m so glad we celebrated my birthday at North Italia yesterday. Service was great and food was exceptional!!! Everything we had was delicious! We will definitely be back.

Chef’s Board - great for sharing between 2-4 people. Good assortment for a charcuterie board

Prosciutto Pizza - fig and cheese combo is always good. Add prosciutto to the mix and it definitely elevated the flavor. Highly recommend this!

Strozzapretti - everyone on the table agreed this was the best food ordered during lunch. I’ll definitely order this again!

Chicken Parm sandwich - my son is picky eater and he thoroughly enjoyed his meal.

Squid ink mafaldine - if you like seafood and spicy food, you’ll enjoy this.

I cannot believe we’ve never tried North Italia before. We will surely be back soon!
