North Italia - Santa Monica
Book your next event with us
Ambiente molto bello ed accogliente, personale gentile e cibo di buona qualità! Prezzi ragionevoli specie se rapportati alla media di Los Angeles.Avevamo bisogno di un po’ di Italian food e questo è stato il posto giusto
Wonderful food and service and great beach location. Could not be more perfect.
Great service and food.
Pleasantly surprised. Delicious food, fun atmosphere and great happy hour specials. The homemade pasta and sangria were standouts!!
Had a great meal!
Food was good, not great. Nice, modern open air environment, but very noisy.
The grilled artichoke and scallop entree were our favorites!
Very close to authentic Italian food (with that little American twist that Americans need just for comfort ;) - as it is always hard to find real Italian food in LA. Great dishes authentically made. Good selection of Italian White Wines - awesome atmosphere. Staff is beyond friendly. They made a mistake with our order and the manager came to personally apologize before we even noticed it. :)
Great restaurant - this will become a regular place.
You wouldn't expect such a large restaurant to have such good food. The menu is simple, and the dishes are fresh and delicious. I'd especially recommend the funghi pizza, and short rib fusilli. It's a really fun atmosphere, the service is great and the prices are really reasonable, especially for the area.
Thé manager chef was very nice with us !
souper pour Birthday
Loved their chicken parmesan and pizza. Their tiramisu is the best.
This is not real Italian Food, this is only mediocre food. One of the worst pizzas ever eaten in the Usa.
First time, I probably would’ve. Second visit, everything we ordered was mostly burnt/overcooked. There goes $80+. It also took about an hour and a half for our main entrees to come out. Didn’t understand why it took that long for a chicken parmigiana and pesto to come out. Had requested certain dishes to come out at the same time since the waiter asked if that’s what we wanted, but that doesn’t happen. It was a disappointing experience. What makes it really upsetting is my bf and i decided to skip out on the last 626 night market of the year for this, only for it to not be worth it.
Outrageously noisy. Food good. Service slow. Better places around.
Amazing food and overall experience!
This was our first time dining at North Italia and it will not be our last. The food was delicious and the service was phenomenal. Paul was our server and he made our experience delightful. I literally have no complaints. Even the energetic children sitting next to us couldn't take away from our dinner!
We've been there before and had excellent service. This time it was mediocre at best, portions seemed smaller and the noise was out of control. I guess we'll give it another try but definitely don't feel as positive about it as we did before.
We had a great Caesar salad and amazing Spaghetti and Meatballs. Food was super fresh, and a great value based on the quality. Service was great. We sat outside on covered area, beautiful, but quite loud. We had a great experience and will definitely be back.
The service wasn’t great at the Santa Monica location. We had to call manger so we can order. The waitress wasn’t but really wasn’t. Overall we love North Italia but location in SM was ok. Probably won’t go back to that location.
Always consistent and delicious. A tad bit pricey for what you get, but very good food and service.
Absolutely loved dining here! The truffle garlic bread is to die for and our server split our meals onto separate plates when we said we would like to share. The food was amazing and the vibe inside is a really good mix of trendy, chic and casual. Great for any occasion. Will definitely be back to dine out on the patio!
Amazing chicken Parmesan
Una hora y media en traer la comida!!!
One of the best Italian restaurants in LA but if you have dairy intolerances it’s a bit tricky because pretty much everything has cheese, even the bread.
Hi, Much appreciation for the high rating. Our in house bread is dairy and egg free, and since we make all our dishes from scratch, it is easy for us to prepare them without cheese. We hope you return soon so that we may make one of these dishes for you. Please feel free to reach out us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may make a reservation for you and ensure that your dishes come out how you like them. Thanks kindly for your feedback. At your service, Armando D. Zelaya
Excellent place. Good food, fresh, natural...i recommand!
I arrived 15 min before. There were at least 5 tables available but still have been told I had to wait. After 20 min, I came back and asked for my table that was, of course, one of those vacant.....
Food is decent, service at he table great.
Amazing food. Great wine. Fun vibe.
I always come back for their vegan pasta and delicious wines!
We had a delicious meal! Great menu selection and exceedingly tasty. It was very busy - I bet it always is - but the service was still very good. Vibrant atmosphere but not too noisy. We had a great time.
Cold pizza. Slow service and so loud conversation was difficult.
2nd time here. Food is very good. Love the pizzas. Service is good.
Waiting time to eat too long.
Our food was wonderful. I had the Scallops and risotto and it was excellent! We had a drink at the bar before dinner and our barmaid was excellent! Our server for dinner was really poor. Disappointing expressly because everything and everyone else was great!
Excellent service and value. Bonus that it is walking distance to SM Pier and Third St Promenade. A bit noisy due to large open room format, but food is delicious!
I was disappointed to find that the food at the Santa Monica location didn't meet the high standards that were set for me from the Irvine location. Overall ambiance of this location was nice but the service and food quality felt inconsistent for North Italia's standards for me. I'd say you should make the trip out to Irvine to have the true "North Italia" experience.
Hi Amy, It is heartbreaking for us to read that we have not only let ourselves and our Irvine team down, but we have failed you in maintaining a consistently great experience across our restaurants. Like our Irvine location we strive to exceed our guests’ expectations and we apologize for not doing so during your visit. Please feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com so that we may turn this around and send you a token of our appreciation for your feedback. -Armando D. Zelaya
Service is no good we waited for an hour to get our food and it was wrong order. My wife had to shear her moms dinner because we could not wait any more.
Never back again.
Food wasn’t too bad but service was dismal. Had to ask for simple things like water and to be served multiple times.
Service was great. Food was ok.
Are here 3 times. Barman welcomes us back second time which was amazing. We loved the vibe -cool, vibrant and buzzing. 2nd time our food was sadly cold and late but was replaced. Last visit unfortunately there was an error at check in and we were told we didn’t attend by Open Table but we did which was a pain but the service was also rushed - dessert menu in middle of mains and wanted to take order before we’d finished. No water offered. We found out our server was finishing shift so was obviously rushing us through (tips?) but it was disappointing as it was our last night and we wanted it to be special.
That aside though the food and vibe are worth the negatives x
