Have eaten here before and it was great. Service tonight was not great. Salads came out before the appetizer. We ran dry on water and had to ask for more. They weren't really busy so I can't make that excuse for them.

Food is awesome. I'll definitely go back to try it again.

I love coming to North Italia and have never been disappointed with the food or service; however, this visit did not meet my expectations. The service was wonderful but the food was below average. I ordered the Farmer’s Market Chef Board & Shrimp Scampi over Rigatoni. The chef board was cold (I would have preferred the vegetables, beans & bread to be warm and served with some kind of dipping sauce). The Shrimp Scampi was lacking flavor (salt & garlic), noodles were too soft and overall just dry (needed more sauce). Our waiter was kind and the wine was great, but I really did not like my food and don’t feel it was worth the price I paid.

Great NYE 2022 experience! Menu offered delicious options and the ambiance was just right. Relatively quiet…great space between tables…beautiful decor…perfect Covid Era dinner. We had the Parmesan meatball and burrata for appetizers and the short rib and beef tenderloin for dinner. The temperature for the tenderloin was wrong. I asked for medium but it came out closer to rare…twice. I was prepared to give up, just take it to-go and put finishing touches on it at home. The manager came over and asked for another shot to get it right and the 3rd time was a charm. We really appreciated their effort and will definitely be back! Good food, beautiful ambience and great service…you can’t ask for anything more!

North Italia's menu has improved. The service is always great. The restuarant is beautifully decorated and now with holiday decorations. Only caveat, the staff are not masked nor does the restaurant demand proof of vaccination for diners. As the virus surges, we won't feel comfortable dining there unless a warm front is upon us in which we'll dine outdoors.

We ate at North Italia at lunchtime. The menu is fairly extensive, but we opted for an entree and then dessert. The food, both chicken and pasta options, arrived promptly and were piping hot. The desserts also were delicious. Kudos to our server Cara, for her efficient service and patience in answering our menu-related questions. We will return.

Food is great disservice not so much. Yes, we did come in at the tail end of the dinner rush but there is no excuse for me to have waited nearly an HOUR for a glass of wine. Our entire table had gotten appetizers and entrées. I had to ask 3 different wait staff(since we didn’t have any clear single server) about my wine.

Food was very good. Due to miscommunication by the restaurant staff, no server was assigned to our table for over 20 minutes. When we finally raised our concern, an excellent waiter was assigned, apologies given and the service was prompt.

Very nice experience. Given the name, I was expecting more northern Italian, but most of the dinner was pasta. Once I realized that and adjusted my expectations, the quality of the food was superior. Menu I thought was a little lacking, but that was because I was looking for more Veal and Picatta and Marsala, etc.

Service was very good. The wine was limited, but very good and good value.

Overall value was fantastic. Noise level is high, ambiance is limited. My wife said music was playing. All I heard was loud people.

We will be back.

North was quite busy Sunday evening. The noise level left us with raised voices. The food was enjoyable but presentation was lacking.
Service was somewhat slow but again the place was very busy.

Disappointed in the menu choices at lunchtime. Just about everything has dairy/cheese--no good for people like me with dairy allergies. Also, they have bacon, but how come no turkey bacon? With the "Americano" breakfast plate, why white bread? Whole wheat would be much more nutritious!

The waiter and the bartender were very courteous and friendly.
Unfortunately I can’t say the same for the rest of the staff. The hospitality wasn’t their strong suit. The standards are hitting a new low in management. The manager on duty didn’t seem to care to turn us into raving fans. Food runners and support staff are not willing to do anything out of their job description, and I can be ok with that but at least get us a someone who can assist.
The food took longer to be served than expected when it wasn’t that busy, however the quality and favor was good.

I hope my comment makes a difference for the future guests. Overall very mediocre place.

Our server was great and so friendly! We each ordered a pasta and app, and all the food was yummy. They asked if we wanted the food to come out as it was ready, but it all ended up coming out fairly quickly and together! The portions were more than enough, so we couldn’t finish everything between the two of us but it definitely hit the spot. Will definitely be back :)

We go to North Italia nearly twice a month if not more! We absolutely love it here! It always has great, consistent food, with an energetic atmosphere. Great spot for 30s / 40s crowd, both dating and couples. The short rib is a must-try and the beef tenderloin is a great deal as well, great value for the money. Wine is not ridiculously or too over priced. The outdoor seating scene is great here as well when the weather is nice. Good place to "be seen" if that's what you're into.
