Italian
Everyone has a favorite dish at North. Every day, our Chefs start from scratch to create handmade pizza and pasta using only the best ingredients to craft inspired dishes from the garden, farm, and sea. North defines the standards for handcrafted Italian. Our menu offers a great selection of antipasti (daily soup, charcuterie, bruschetta), salads full of seasonal ingredients, and a main entrée menu driven by both traditional Italian cuisine and lighter fresh fish dishes. North is a great neighborhood spot for family and friends to meet and share a handcrafted experience. From the food to the service, at North every detail matters.

Hands down the worst experience I’ve had. For the price, $65 per person for their valentines special, the service was unacceptable. From the time taken to place the order to simple items such as serving water and 25 minutes to deliver dessert after three courses, I’d say North Italia is nothing more than a chain restaurant masquerading as a high-end boutique. I’m extremely disappointed and will ensure myself and cohort do not return.

Valentine was a limited selection menu for 65 each. The options were good but the food was not hot.

My husband and I were looking forward to ordering our favorite menu items - pesto chicken and grilled cauliflower. We had no idea that the restaurant had a prix fixe menu - ONLY. We found out when we checked in with the hostess. Not having any other options for Valentine's Day, we decided to eat at North Italia. The food was good - just not as good as it had been on our prior visits. Plus, we did not get a choice to order our favorite items. With one glass of wine, the dinner for two came to around $180.00 including tax and tip. We will visit North Italia again - just not on any holidays. Instead of a great expeerience, it was disappointing.

Valentine’s Day. Menu was very limited. No one mentioned that during the reservation. Truffle bread not available. That’s the one dish worth going there for. Very dissatisfied. Will not go there again. Not worth the $200.00. :(

The area is too open and noisy and I would love to see more items on the menu for lunch than it was presented. As Italian place I expected to see more soups and pasta dishes - but the pasta I got was outstanding.

It was good, not great. This is mainly based on the house specialty being average. The squid ink mafaldine was delicious. Maybe that should be their specialty.

We always love eating here. Atmosphere and food is great. Tonight our service was extra great by Jessie our server, she was very attentive yet gave us the right amount of space for us to enjoy each other at dinner. The short rib pasta was out of this world on a cold rainy night. Looking forward to going back soon!

We came here to celebrate our daughter’s 22nd birthday and overall had a fun time! The food was was very tasty. There were 6 of us, and we all had something different. Hate to say this, but we all agreed the pizza, calamari, bruschetta, and desserts were the best part of the meal! The scallops/risotto was “ok”, the short ribs pasta was “meh”. The beef had kind of a strange taste to it, so was not real thrilled with that. The salmon meal and the mushroom tortellini again was just “ok”. Now...the appetizers, pizza, and desserts were fabulous!! Next time our meal will consist of these!! Service was ok, but our poor server had several tables that night so she was kind of running ragged, so I hate to give much discredit. Overall it was a fun night, and will definitely be back!!

The food is consistently good here, this time we had the burrata with gluten free pizza dough instead of bread, zucchini noodles with bolognese sauce, and my go-to the tuscan kale salad. Paired with a carafe of sangria, we had a delicious meal. If you have a gluten allergy, know that they take it seriously here & are careful to avoid cross contamination.

Consistently delicious food and customer service is excellent. Every employee, combined with the ambiance, food quality, dishes and linens make eating here such a fantastic experience. The bartenders are knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. It’s great for intimate dinners or large parties. Cost is sensible. Such a well done restaurant.

Great appetizers and northern Italian cuisine! I love the rice balls (arronzini?) Grilled Artichoke, Pasta Bolognese, Chicken Parm, Short Ribs, pizzas... we like to go with a group and share :) Only negative about this place is that it can be pretty loud at times.

Wait staff was overwhelmed. Wait staff had to be asked for bread to be brought to the table. Food delivery was rather swift. Food was decent. Place is packed, you need a reservation. We tried to get in for 3 days. 2 of the 3 days was 1 1/2 to 2 hour wait. Go next door to Tru Food, it was delicious!!

The only critique is that we felt rushed. Appetizers arrived before drinks. Entree’s arrived before wine. The server seemed very eager to take order once we were seated. For my dining experience, I like to have drinks on the table before food. The food is incredible. We drove from downtown Dallas to eat. Can not wait for the Downtown location to open in the Spring.
