Excellent restaurant for Italian food. The service was excellent as well. The drinks and wine list is fairly broad, can't go wrong at this restaurant.

We had a wonderful meal tonight at North Italia. Great food, great service, reasonable price (a bit high end, but worth it). Portions are generous and you can sit inside or out with H2O misting. One issue to consider when eating inside is that it is a bit loud. It was not a big issue, but it was definitely loud.... More

We held our wedding rehearsal dinner at North Italia. Party of 12. The dinner exceeded our expectations and the service too. Excellent wine/beverage list, and appetizing dining choices. This is a "go back" to restaurant. You will want to try other dishes. Plenty of parking. Beautiful city views.

We had high expectations for our first visit. We ran into an unexpected situation that can happen in a restaurant. The manager did his very best to make it right. That being said, customer service here is excellent. We started with zucca chips, very thinly sliced and fried zuchinni, based on the recommendation of our waitress. We shared a seasonal... More

We had good service and delicious food. We like their menus. It was great to see how many vegetable dishes were available.

Graduation Weekend at UofA...Place was packed....not to worry, this place knows how to handle crowds. Host at the door verified our reservation, took us to the bar, seated promptly at our rez time, PERFECT! Tough choice...Scallops or Chicken Parm? Went with the scallops...winner! Zuca Chips are a must.

Whether I come to North for lunch, dinner or happy hour the service is amazing! And that's so important. Staff is informed and willing to share, suggest, and listen; meaning there's an excellent chance I'll be happy with the meal. We went out for Mother's Day which is often not enjoyable. We had an early reservation which was perfect and... More

I have always enjoyed north. They have lovely appetizers, salads and entrées that are usually fresh and appealing. The staff is friendly too although very young. We came on a Saturday evening without realizing it was prom night. As a result, we waited another 1/2 hr. even though we had a reservation they tried to seat us outside on the... More

If the beer prices weren't as high as they are, this place would get a 5 star rating. Great Atmosphere, friendly staff, and great food. Just beer prices are a little high. But where the restaurant is located explains everything. Overall, a great place for dinner, and a nice place to relax at the bar and have a beer or... More

The location is very nice, the waiters are kind, however, the Italian cusine is reinterpreted and is not authentic. I took arancini which were good but too much tomato sauce for me, and pizza margherita, which was extremely salty (the waitress told me they put salt on the external crust). Not a bad experience, but I expected more. For sure... More

We’ve turned a modern lens on traditional Italian cooking. North Italia is our love letter to Italy—a place that’ll make you feel like you’ve stepped off a charming side street to discover a culinary gem. After a decade in business, we’ve learned a thing or two and we’re approaching perfection in the art of handmade pasta and pizza. Every day, we start from scratch to create dishes like Strozzapreti with Bloomsdale spinach or supple ribbons of tagliatelle for our Bolognese. Our pizza is a revelation: an airy, barely chewy center embraced by a perfectly crisp crust. With the spirit of the Italian taverna, North is the place to talk shop over a cocktail or swap gossip sharing delectable chef creations.Every neighborhood would be lucky to have a place like North.
