Great service! We ate outdoors on the patio so there was higher noise level but did not take much away from everything else. Food is solid as always

Food here is delicious!!
The quality of their pasta and pizza is amazing...I would highly recommend trying both and also their Truffle Garlic Bread as a starter. You won't be disappointed choosing this place for dinner or lunch.

The price for this experience is definitely worth every penny!

If you are looking for a great Italian restaurant, this is it!
The food is outstanding all around. Be sure to order the garlic
toast with truffle oil. It is heaven. The pastas are really good too.
We had a salad to share and it was enormous. Took half home.

Service was excellent. Our server checked on us several times.

There is a small outdoor patio, but the inside is large and seating is
spread out.

I highly recommend this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

We got to meet our niece and her boyfriend fir the first time and celebrated Christmas at North Italia. We had so much fun, the Italian food was top notch, our waiter superb. I would have gave the ambiance 5 stars as well but the front doors were open on a cold rainy day and was a tad cold. Nonetheless, we will be back. The Bolognese was totally legit!

This was my first visit to the SantaMonica location. I’ve been to the location in Reston VA several times on business trips. I was happy to discover there was one at home in Los Angeles. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. I was amazed how attentive the service was by the entire staff. If you love Italian, give it a try.

Great outdoor dining space! Short rib hash, pizza, pastas, salad were all very good. Service was good, but main course came WAY after appetizers. Place wasn't busy so maybe they were short staffed. We'll definitely return for the food!

My husband is from NY, so he's a tough grader when it comes to Italian. He loved his Chicken Parm plate and my Cavatelli with Short ribs was terrific. Good sized portions. We started with the Italian Farm salad -- I love it when the romaine is actually chilled. A meal in itself. Definitely a return visit!

This was my first time at this restaurant and I was not disappointed.
The food here is wonderful. Just like being in Italy.

The truffle garlic bread was out of this world!
The farmer salad was also wonderful. And, the pasta was
made perfectly.

I would highly recommend this restaurant.
There are many Italian restaurants in our area, but this one
should be at the top of your list. It is on mine.

Some call it energetic, we call it LOUD. Maybe it’s just trying to draw in 20 year olds with the crazy loud music, but for dinner it was a bit much. Barring that, the food and drinks and waitstaff were all great. We had the scallops and the salmon which couldn’t have been better. Perfect waitress made it an enjoyable experience—wish I could have heard her name. Nice and spacious inside as well, not overcrowded.

Food was great but service was not the best. It took over 10 min for somebody to take our drinks order and when he did take our order, he didn’t greet us or introduce himself. Overall, it was just average.
