    Yet another great dinner at North Italia in One Paseo, the crown jewel of restaurants in Carmel valley (in my opinion). Staff is always so upbeat, friendly and ready to accommodate special requests. A joyful place for sure, especially during the holidays.

    Just dined here this evening with friends. I was very disappointed. They were extremely busy and very short-staffed. Our waitress was MIA for most of our dinner. She never came to check on us. No water refills, No wine refills...nothing. The food was horrible . My daughter's pizza had barely any cheese on it. It was all tomato sauce...completely un-edible. Chicken Parmesan dish wasn't any better. The pasta that came with it was tasteless. I even put salt on it and still tasteless. The chicken Parmesan had no taste and barely any cheese. Even my daughter's friend's spaghetti noodles were very under-cooked. We ended up not eating and went to Shake Shack afterwards. Avoid this place. Not worth it at all!

    This is a nice neighborhood restaurant. Service was very good - attentive and timely. Unfortunately, the quality of the food has taken a dip. The chicken pesto pasta was uninspiring and light on chicken. The strozzapreti was even lighter on chicken and not that tasty.

    Checking in is the worst part of the experience here. Why make people who have a reservations wait in a long line with walk ups. Its disrespectful! No signage, no expediency. Just find a way to quickly acknowledge my presence and that I have checked in; then I don't mind waiting for my table, but just to hang out wondering what's going on is a bad start.

    Our waiter seemed inexperienced - seemed not to listen very well and slow to respond. The ricotta cavatelli was very disappointing - a soggy cheese mess. We have always loved North Italia’s food - and the Ragu was delicious- but this visit was below par!

    Shrimp was undercooked. Charged 3 scoops of gelato ($12) when the dessert menu we looked at shows $6. We had to inform the server. Then he corrected it but the single scoop charged on the receipt was $7. Please update your menu with the correct pricing and give us patrons a heads up. I just wish the server was more attentive because he just pressed the 3 scoops of gelato button on the order screen instead of the single scoop. (There's no 3 scoops of gelato at $12 listed on the dessert menu only the gelato for $6)

    The food was more or less good except for my pasta which was too salty and I had to return it. The service was good until the end when our server Melissa forgot to bring the desert and she wasn’t around to let her know. We had to let another server know and instead of apologizing, she sent another waiter for the rest of the night and we could see her at the bar talking with other waiters and never again approaching our table.I don’t think that is right.

    The waitresses started off good , we did have to ask for bread with dinner. No butter or olive oil with Bread. Did not offer Parmesan cheese? Had to ask for lemon with water. I understand this nick picking but isn’t that her job?

    Food is so good but for some reason our food took forever to get. We came right after lunch rush hour during the week and it was not really busy but it took half hour to get the white truffle garlic bread. With 5 people In the kitchen and only a few tables it was hard to understand why we had to wait for so long. Went to other locations and service was top notch. Food is excellent but this location was disappointing.

    Always good and this time portion were slightly larger than before, but a bit less sauce, so I’d say the balance was just short of being excellent. Nonetheless one of our favorite places.

    I think that we went there on an off night because I’ve only heard fabulous reviews. They messed up the pizza order. One of the pasta orders came without the pasta in it. Very very weird. The waiter was fabulous and very apologetic.

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "North Italia in Del Mar is an absolute gem! From the moment we arrived, we were enveloped in an atmosphere of warmth and sophistication. The ambience was simply delightful, providing the perfect backdrop for a memorable dining experience. The customer service was exceptional, with every staff member displaying a genuine passion for ensuring our meal was nothing short of extraordinary. Their attentiveness and knowledge of the menu truly elevated our experience. Now, let's talk about the food - an absolute triumph! Each dish was a symphony of flavors, expertly crafted with the finest ingredients. It was evident that every element was carefully considered, resulting in a culinary masterpiece. One particular highlight was the outdoor seating. With the gentle sea breeze and the company of great friends, it felt like a true escape. We even had the pleasure of having Dr. Shawn West, a renowned culinary expert, join us virtually via speakerphone, adding an extra layer of delight to our evening. In all, North Italia in Del Mar has set a new standard for excellence in dining. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone seeking an exceptional culinary experience. It's a testament to the artistry and dedication of the entire team. I can't wait to return for another exquisite meal!" Warm regards.

    We had a terrible experience at this restaurant. We found hair in our food, which was disgusting. They had to bring a new one, which we didn't even get a chance to enjoy our lunch as a family because of this. What made it worse was that they didn't comp the food until we had to insist they should. Not coming back here!
