We had an enjoyable dining experience last night at North Italia in One Paseo. We sat outside which was pleasant. Our shrimp scampi appetizer was outstanding, followed by the seasonal salad with salmon on top and finally the Branzino fish entry. The quality of the food and tasty preparations were quite good. Our server was pleasant, the bus boys were friendly, and overall we had a good time!
Had a reservation, waited 10 mins (absolutely no one was there), sat us right near the door with both doors open - freezing cold. Asked 2 waitresses to close the door - finally only closed ONE door. Absolutely freezing the entire dinner - while sitting inside!! They were out of quite a bit of food for it only being 5 pm - one of the beers we wanted, two of the pasta dishes we wanted (one being the only vegetarian pasta option), and could not offer us a regular Caesar dressing (for the vegetarian since they ran out of the 1 meat-free pasta on the menu). And then - it was one of our birthdays at the table, we asked in private if we could get a dessert sent to the table (usually kept a secret), but the waitress walked over after our dinner and said “I heard it’s your birthday - what kind of gelato would you like?” Completely ruining any surprise we had. Overall, not a great experience at all! Will not be returning.
Great food and overall great time here!
One of our guests asked for vegetarian pasta and was brought it with a meat sauce. Asked if it was for sure meatless and it was not. Waited for over 15 mins for the meatless dinner... it was not made a priority in the kitchen.... sitting right there in front of the kitchen.
No apologies was the LEAST we would expect.
VERY DISAPPOINTED. FOOD was ok.
So love the location and atmosphere. Thought the portions for price was high. But the food was great tasting.
Food was fantastic! Service very friendly and en point but felt a little slow. Very casual atmosphere. Definitely will recommend and return.
We were kept standing outside for 15-20 minutes even though we had made a reservation in advance and were there just in time. When we got there, we told the waiters about our reservation, and they said they would look at our table and let us know, but then they forgot. When we insisted again, they took us to our table but did not apologize. The food is good, but the service is a little late, and the inside is very noisy.
We love North Italia and frequent it often. The service is outstanding!! Every person from the hostess to all the waitstaff and servers who assist is top notch! The Hostess Shelby said,” the cream brûlée is not to be missed” we weren’t planning on dessert, but it was Amazing!
Reservation process is difficult if trying to schedule for group of 6.
Need to learn how to manage the outdoor heaters better.
Our waiter Eric made our celebration so nice. He knew the menu well and made recommendations that were so delicious. Great personality.
Enjoyed the openness of the restaurant and location. Excellent! Will return often.
Jordan a great server. Paid attention to us and always available to help.
Thank you for adding the choice to substitute vegetable noodles; I enjoyed the bolognese with them. Our server was friendly and attentive.
My friends were disappointed with the cost of the dishes compared to what was received but we all agreed it was probably due to the pandemic and supply chain.
I actually enjoy North Italia's food and happy hour so will return.
We reserved an outside table on the patio because we were with my 86 year-old dad and not comfortable eating inside during a pandemic. We were given a take it or leave it option to sit inside or cancel our reservation because it rained SIX HOURS EARLIER - although there was another couple seated on the patio with their dog. We were told the cushions were wet…
40 minutes later, the patio was full of customers. I checked the cushions, and they were bone dry. I asked the manager why the hostess lied to my face. The manager proceeded to double down also lying to my face that the cushions had to ‘finish drying’.
The truth is that the cushions we’re already dry, but restaurant didn’t have enough staff for patio seating until the 4 pm dinner shift. (We had 3:45 pm reservation)
Also, one of our entrees came out 15 minutes late.
Do better and don’t lie. You will lose less customers.
A bit noisy but food is good for the price and service very friendly
Food and service is always so good! Love this restaurant!
I didn’t know happy hour was only at the bar. That information wasn’t clear in OpenTable
North Italia is one of my favorite places but,
The meat was so chewy I couldn’t eat it & sent it back, which I never do. The other meal was more expensive they brought and it took forever, so having a meal together, at the same time, wasn’t happening.
Glad this wasn’t my first time at North because I know it’s better than that.
It wasn’t a great experience.
Great food - great service - great atmosphere!
Delicious and creative food paired with excellent service!
We had excellent friendly service and our meals were delicious. Thanks for allowing us to sit for over two hours to catch up on our 25+ year friendship.
The food was excellent, The wine was wonderful, the service is very good, and we really enjoyed our experience.
My only wish would be to turn down the music to enable diners to converse without yelling at each other.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Always a great time at North Italia, food is fantastic, reasonably priced, drinks are great, music is good, all around a favorite place to dine.
Our waiter Connor was a standout!
Our waiter was awesome. Everyone there is terrific and it’s always a nice experience.
Cannot beat the seasonal salad, naked or with salmon, delish! OUr wait person was great too, friendly, and good timing on everything.
Delicious food and very attentive service - without hovering by the table.
It was worth the drive to this location! Food was good and service was excellent! This will be my new fav location of North Italia.
Very blah arugula and avocado salad. Piece if salmon on top. Had to ask for salt and pepper as the salad had hardly any seasoning or dressing. Arugula just tossed on a plate.
Good was great! Ambience was perfect
Food was very underwhelming!
Came here for my dad’s birthday! The service was great and everyone was super friendly! The food was great as always!
Came in for the reservation at 4. Lots of empty tables in the front of the restaurant but I was assigned to the table at the end of the restaurant near the restroom. Food was ok not that great. Just a typical restaurant. Overpriced
Great out door dining. Causal brunch, friendly service. Try the short rib hash and the lemon donuts. You can pay on your iphone with a QR code and Apple Pay.
Delicious !! Service was excellent! Food was great ambiance amazing ! Yes
Delicious food. All of us loved the Arancini. I had a salad and my friends had breakfast food. Loved the ambiance. Friendly service. Will definitely come back.
The restaurant does not serve their delicious meatball sandwich on the weekends for lunch but the chef agreed to make us one. Thanks!
Who runs out of Pellegrino at an Italian restaurant? Bartte
Great neighborhood place for a family dinner.
We had a wonderful table outside in the corner where it was quieter and away from other tables. Chelsea was a very attentive, personable waiter. The food was great and we will definitely go back.
