    Waiter was a bit inattentive. It appeared that they may have been short staffed as he was covering many tables. Some of which were not close by. The food was delicious and well presented.

    Anniversary Dinner for 2 great friends. Can’t say enough about this place. Our 2nd time here and another home run. We had the shrimp scampi, burata and tomato salad and crispy calamari as appetizers. Our entrees were diver scallops (best ever) glazed short ribs w/caveteli and braised short ribs with roasted vegetables. Desert included the hazelnut torta and Italian butter cake. Everything was top shelf including our waitress. So sorry I forgot here name. We’ll be back again again and again.

    North Italia was such a great place to have dinner. The food was excellent and SO tasty. The service provided was exceptional, and the waitress, Catherine, was so pleasant and made dinner such a joy. I would 100% recommend North Italia.

    I had heard such great thing about this place, I was very disappointed. Our reservation was at 900 PM and everyone on the staff acted tired and disinterested. we ordered a couple appetizers and a bottle of wine which came out promptly but from that point on it was downhill. our waiter became aloof, and food came out cold and tasteless. It gave Olive Garden a close run for the money. Don't know that I will be going back to North Italia, that's a shame because it was really a cool place but not worth the money spent.

    Our waitress was efficient, knowledgeable about the menu, and a delightful server. I first dined at North Italia May 2022. The food and service were on pointe! Last night, however my entree was inedible-twice! I ordered the SPICY RIGATONI VODKA, which had been delicious in May. The first round brought to me the pasta was undercooked. No where near al dente-the pasta was tough and not even chewy. My server very kindly brought me another serving. It was just as poorly cooked as the first. No effort had been made to properly cook the pasta. I was VERY disappointed. My friends’ meals were fine-and eagerly consumed. The fact that there was no discernible difference between the two portions caused me to question whether or not the restaurant is interested in my business. It’s as if the pasta was barely cooked at all. It will be a long time before I even consider going back.

    Overall very good. Our server Isaac did a great job. Our food was fine. Only complaint was that our appetizer was sent to the wrong table and we were really hungry when we arrived, so that was a bit disappointing. We did get our appetizer when our meal came, but a comp offer from the manager for the appetizer would have been nice. We would have refused the offer, but would have appreciated the gesture. Overall we enjoyed our meal, and we will be back!

    This is one of many visits. The Good: Service, Tiramisu & Arancini. The not so Good: Main dishes were lack luster, Shrimp Scampi over cooked and way too salty. Breakfast Carbonara, missing the egg and No flavor that any of us could say was even acceptable. Truffle Garlic Bread 1st bite was good after that it was just bread. (Thiner slices so all have that first bite goodness) Wine was over priced. Did i mention the coffee was great after the Tiramisu.

    North is one of our favorites. The food on this visit was not very good. We ordered what we normally get and it was not the same quality. Hoping it was just an off night in the kitchen because the food is usually excellent!

    I have to imagine that staffing shortages were responsible for the fact that my empty appetizer plate and glass stayed on the table through dessert. And for the fact that the server never checked in to see whether I wanted to order another drink or to see how the food was. There were some other negative highlights as well. The food was 2.5/5 the evening I went when it's usually 3-4/5.
