Food was good once we got over the calorie shock and settled on something with less than a full day of calories! I had the kale salad and it was great.

Utterly disappointed! Made a reservation, got there on time, ordered promptly as we had a show to get to & literally an hour later they told us that the kitchen had lost our order & they would not be about to honor our order. Are you kidding me! We had an hour & a half for dinner with 1 appetizer & 1drink. They pick up the bill but I had to pay the tax & tip the waitress. Don’t waste your time or money here. Obviously not a great place to dine!

Location, environment and food was excellent. Our server was friendly. Service was a little slow. We had to wait quite a while for our drinks and appetizers which was hard for our children.

Every single dish was awesome. Notably the short rib pasta, the truffle grilled cheese bread and the lemon donut. Oh, that was my whole meal!!

I'd previously dined here for dinner, and splurged (calorie wise) on one of the great pasta dishes. For lunch, I wanted something a bit lighter, so I chose the Seasonal Vegetable salad. I was delighted it was not problem to change the vinaigrette from white balsamic to parmesan. My friend also chose a salad, Tuscan Kale, and added chicken to it. Both our dishes were yummy and portioned well — great for lunch. Our server was attentive; I especially appreciated that she kept our water glasses filled, something that can be problematic at other places.

We love having North Italia in our neighborhood of Mission Valley. Their food is consistently good as is their service. Plan to work through ordering every item on the menu, but so far whatever we have ordered, we have been happy with ...

Our waitress was extremely sweet & great! We felt it was a little tacky/turned off that at an Italian restaurant, with a moderate priced menu, doesn’t hand out complimentary bread unless guests ask.

Wouldn’t be my top pick for Italian food, but can’t say I’d never come back.

The service was really lacking this time. We had to ask for certain things more than once and our waitress rarely checked in on us. It took way too long for food and the appetizers came after the entrees. Not a good showing.

Overall super great meal. Kale salad, excellent chicken, amazing pasta minus the two thousand (2 with a K) calories. Oh and the. those amazing desserts. We’ll definitely be back after we work this one off.

Food was not that great. It was almost bland. Not a lot of flavor. They had a lot of waiters yet ours took a while to come check in. Would not recommend.

The food is overpriced for Italian. We are a family of 4 and it was $134 before tip and we all just had a pasta and a total of 1 appetizer, 1 glass of wine and one beer. I could have had the same meal at Bueno Forchetta for 30% less! The food was good but not over the top.

Great place. Service was outstanding. The dessert was not memorable. If you do decide to stay for dessert, order the torta. The salted caramel dishes are a disappointment.

The food and service are amazing. The noise level is low even with the high ceilings and hard floor. The design of sound dreading material into the structure blends in well. The menu does have a wonderful selection but we find it hard to order off our favorites. With its closeness to the Tesla super chargers we are finding it our go to restaurant for a lunch or dinner weekly.

Our waiter, Devon provided 5 star service and beyond! He visited it with kids at the table with and provided exceptional service overall from
The moment we sat down to the table to the time we were done. Bravo!
Nick is such an outstanding bartender to make customer’s requests for cocktails and “hits it” every time! I wish he was at One Paseo near our house! OR at least, let him
Train the bartenders in Del Mar on bev skills with a passion and a smile to please! Thank you to Renaldo, the gm, who visited our table and truly cared if we were taken care of. We were!! Always! We ❤️North Italia in FV. 👍

My daughter loves the squid in pasta and it’s just the perfect spice level. My plate was great but her shrimp was overcooked and chewy. We still ate it all! I give service less stars for the hostess desk as we were a large group with three separate reservations and while one person said it was possible to sit near each other (as there were clearly available tables close together) another person ended up seating us away from each other.
