    Visiting back in Bham, this is a nice Italian restaurant located at the Summit with a beautiful ambiance. The staff was friendly and great. The food did take a while to come out which was expected as it seemed to be a busy night; however, it was a bit cold considering the wait time, which was disappointing to enjoy the food because it was tasty and flavorful.

    North does a perfect job of maintaining a local neighborhood restaurant atmosphere with the highest quality of hospitality, food, and drinks. They provide all the luxuries of fine dining without any of the fuss. We sat on the patio to catch up which was lovely and the perfect temperature. The service team was exceptional. Especially, Kendall. She did a fantastic job of tending to us and giving us the freedom to take our time and catch up between ordering. The Arancini has become my favorite appetizer and the Tuscan Kale salad is delicious! You are always headed in the right direction when you go North. If only they needed a tagline.

    The service was initially slow then got better. The food was delicious. I had pappardelle pasta and my husband had a spring salad with chicken. I like that they use fresh seasonal ingredients and change the menu several times a year. The outdoor seating area looks nice. I would like to eat out there next time.

    This used to be my go to place for corporate meals, and sadly after three different poor experiences, I do not know if we will be back. The food took almost an hour to get out. We ordered the Burrata appetizer, which took almost 30 minutes to receive, ridiculous! The waitress barely checked on us, and drinks went unfilled for quite some time. When hosting clients, it is particularly disappointing to have this experience. This used to be a great restaurant with phenomenal service and I have not felt that way about North Italia in my recent visits.

    Similar to the experience we had a month ago. Servers are great, your kitchen has issues. Our main courses took forever to arrive and what my husband received was not what he ordered but we didn’t dare send back we had already waited so long. They were kind enough to comp our appetizer to apologize, but this seems to have become a recurring problem. Not sure what had happened in the last several months.

    Friendly service; a little slow at times but server handled having two massive parties at the same time pretty well. Food was ok. Not terrible but not memorable by any means. Ambiance was just right for a birthday get-together.

    Typically have a good experience at North. Sat for about 7 minutes before anyone approached the table and it was not extremely busy(booked on Open Table 10 minutes before the reservation) Server was friendly but slow with everything. Not sure was all her but more so their “process”. Ordered a glass of wine right off the bat from our server. A different person brought the glass to the table and a third person brought the wine. Salad ordered 5 minutes later arrived before the wine and delivered by a fourth person??? My wife requested additional cheese when the food was delivered to the table and she was half way through the meal before it arrived. Reminded our server and it showed up a couple of minutes later on a plate from yet another individual. I get the concept of runners at a restaurant but their purpose is to speed the process not slow it down. At the very least on the requested cheese the server should have gone directly to the kitchen, picked some up and brought it to the table. Should not have had to make a request in the system for cheese. My wife’s meal was good minus the cheese. My chicken parm was dry and overcooked. Only a $90 meal so wasn’t expecting $300 service or food but did expect much better than this.

    Arrived for our reservation & had to wait 10 mins to be seated - there were multiple open tables. When we were seated and given menus, the hostess did not mention anything currently taken off the menu we were handed. Waiter came to take our drink order, never mentioned items removed nor that there was a specials menus. By the time he finally came back to take our order the one item I had chosen was no longer available & had been taken off the menu for the season. Very disappointing. I had to quickly make another choice which was frustrating. The restaurant was extremely cold for May. They had the front & side doors open - letting in the hot air and were having to over compensate with air condition to keep the rest of restaurant cool. We were then told by another server who we finally flagged down to ask if temp could be adjusted that they seated us (and my elderly parents) in the “worst place” because it had an air vent directly above us. There were still multiple other same size tables open throughout the restaurant we could have been sat at instead. No one offered to move us. Food took an extremely long time to finally come out - waiter checked on it once “oh it’s coming” but was several minutes later before it arrived. Food was sub par & lukewarm when it finally arrived but after being there two hours we just needed to eat and dealt with it. Waiter also tried to up sell us on a bottle of wine after not making us aware of menu changes. Very disappointing experience but also reminded us why we rarely eat at chain restaurants any more.

    We had a great experience at North, starting with excellent service! Both my lady friend and I got the shrimp scampi. It’s an appetizer but plenty big for a meal…five big shrimp in a garlic butter sauce and plenty of bread for dipping!

    North Italia never disappoints! On my latest visit, I ordered the Bolognese, marked on their menu as a “specialty.” It was delicious. The recipe must include a unique variety of fresh spices bc the meaty sauce had a distinct, almost tangy flavor, without being overly robust or spicy. It was served over a perfectly prepared bed of pasta similar to fettuccine. I enjoyed every bite (including my leftovers which warmed up beautifully the next day). I also enjoyed an espresso martini, which unfortunately, wasn’t exactly my favorite, AND a super delicious piece of their seasonal carrot-butter-cake (so tasty!). Next time, I want to try their Caesar salad. I had food-envy bc the customer dining next to me ordered a Caesar and confirmed it was just as good as it looked!

    We like this place a lot, but, they need to work on their timing. Last time we got there, we didn't get our wine until after the food arrived. This time we got the wine fairly quickly - which is good - but then the food took forever, they only delivered the food for one of us, then had to send back to the kitchen for the other person's meal. They were very apologetic, and offered us some free stuff (always appreciated), but it does seem like they need to get on top of their delivery timing. Still, we do like this place and plan on going back.
