First time for us at North Italia and we will definitely return. Excellent food and service. There were 3 of us and we had each of the following dishes: Simple 8.5 salad; the Pig pizza; Strozzapreti; and chicken parmesan. All delicious. No desert for us tonight though.

While we enjoyed our starter and cocktails, the noise level was way beyond enjoyable. We ate a couple bites of our main, and took the rest to go. Our waiter was on the edge of being rude. I am guessing he must have felt we were not worth his effort.
We will not be back.

Food was good but the environment was not. It was so loud inside you could not talk to the person across from you. We had to move outside although we didn’t want to because it was too cold. There were space heaters but were told they weren’t turned on for the season.

When we’re in town we always go here for dinner. It’s been consistently good for the whole family. This time we were disappointed to see the Laguna Chardonnay off the wine list-our long time favorite. The burning smell in the bar north area where we were seated was pretty overpowering and off putting. It may have been the zucca chips that burned, because ours kinda were. The pasta was delicious, as was the branzino. The two salmon entrees were over cooked but still tasty.

Was disappointed that we sat in the smaller East section of the restaurant. The ambiance is nothing like the main section and there was a constant burning smell from the kitchen.

I would recommend North Italia. It suffered from popularity as the restaurant was slammed on a Friday night. Our 6:30 reservation wasn't filled until 6:50, but the manager was very professional in his apology. Our server was excellent. My chicken on my Caesar salad was too dry, but can be forgiven for what had to be an overworked kitchen in a packed restaurant. Nice atmosphere in the Kierland Square (when not over-crowded).

We have eaten here many times, we make a point of coming at least twice a week when we are vacationing here. Very disappointing it was not that busy, but had to wait over 35 min for our mains, we had no appetizers. The waiter came over and apologized clearly there was an issue in the kitchen. He asked if the manager came over we said no. When the food arrived the pizza was not cut, and my pasta was lukewarm. We were surprised about this and the food was promptly taken away. The manager did appear but only for 2 sec. My meal was taken off the bill, but left us wondering what is going on when it wasn’t that busy. We have sent many people here but walked away disappointed

The experience was pleasant but the server was rushing us. My friend that was meeting me didn't even have a chance to say hello before the server wanted to know what he wanted to drink and then continued to interrupt our conversation and dinner until we finally paid and left. When we cashed out our $60 tab with a $100 he brought back two twenties so we then had to make change to leave a tip or did he think we were going to leave a 30% tip 🤔

You would need many more stars to fully rank the high quality food and service we received. Branzino prepared so well, it easily competes with the best we've encountered in Piedmont, Italy. Nothing short of flawless! Bravissimo!!!

My husband I really enjoy coming here for our anniversary celebrations. We love the scallops and the mushroom risotto. They cook the best scallops around. We had a very attentive waiter named Kyle. He went up and out of his way the entire night even though the restaurant was totally full. The inside is very noisy. We prefer to eat outside on the patio.

Lunches are equally as great. We've been going here for years and have never had a bad experience.

Usually a very good meal at North. But, the kitchen over cooked both salmon and the server was abrupt; just odd, uncomfortable to be around. This is not your norm and I recommended this place to my boss to introduce my wife. Failure.
