    Excellent experience from reservation to greeting to seating to service to recommendations to manager flirting with my 85 year old mother. We will definitely be back. Absolutely delightful. No one missed a beat from front to back of house. I come from many years in the restaurant business - trust me, I know a well run establishment with an A+ kitchen when I see one. And this is one.

    We ordered the margarita pizza which was delicious and cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the spicy Italian pasta and I got the branding. Both dishes seasoned and cooked well. For dessert, we had thr seasonal pumpkin butter cake which was yummy but didn't taste like a butter cake. Overall 5 out of 5. This restaurant hit it out of the park.

    Took a very long time to get our food. We had to ask another server to check on it and they finally brought it to the table. Our server rarely checked on our table and one of the orders when it finally arrived was completely wrong so had to wait another 10-15 … for a salad. We were there well over 2 hours for a lunch.

    Our 4th visit over the last 5 months. Another excellent dinner. The only glitch was the way our appetizers were served. The 2 appetizers were served 10 minutes apart. This is the same issue we had last time we were there. The Mgr told us this is normal practice but would watch for us in the future and ensure our meals are served together. I really don’t understand this but it won’t deter us in the future. If you haven’t tried this place, give them a try. It will become your go to Italian restaurant.

    Food took a while and some entrees were warm or cold when they arrived. Server and management not only remade food but gave us dessert and meal vouchers. They did not charge us for the items that were remade. In summary, we felt that our patronage mattered and the service was not up to North Italia standards. We will definitely return.

    Preface: I have worked in restaurants before and what I am relating is not a criticism: the time to delivery of our order was delayed (I don't know if we even thought is was excessive as the lunch crowd was large) but one of the servers explained that a glitch had occurred getting our ticket in and she brought an appetizer of (excellent) Italian meatballs to tide us over. They were transparent and proactive in caring for us which I appreciated. We all can make mistake but their handling showed integrity and hospitality. Thank you! We will be returning. Excellent food.

    Always an enjoyable experience at North. The one complaint we have is they changed their AMAZING calamari.. it used to be one of the best I’ve ever had. Now, it is deeply battered and greasy, nothing special about it at all, so sad. Service was wonderful, the meatball appetizer as well as truffle bread, are outstanding. Pasta is always top notch. Please go back to the old calamari, this change is NOT one for the better.

    Hospitality: friendly staff, but when I make online reservation I have put a note that we celebrating 15 yrs anniversary, but the greeters doesn’t read the note n didn’t wish us, and a special touch doesn’t hurt like confetti or table cloth n a greeting card on table. It was useless to put note on what we celebrating. Ambience: nice luminary, clean decor. Service: our server is spot on, he took good care of us, he brought us a free dessert after we mentioned our 15 yrs wedding anniversary. Food: this supposedly the most important part when dining out, but entree didn’t come w bread so we order house bread, it was dry, taste like leftover bread at Walmart clearance. Than the entree: we ordered Braised Short Ribs $29: it’s good n portion well. Bolognese house specialty $22: not much flavor, or sauce or meat n portion is like lunch size not dinner size (we look over opposite table we can see his spaghetti meatballs, I bet from his table he can see our Bolognese like an empty bowl. I have the pix and wb happy to send for proof, since it’s our anniversary, my wife posted the pix on her Facebook and you can see how under-portion this dish. We were so excited to try North Italia from hearing our friends recommendations but we were very disappointed. My husband in hospitality industry managing culinary school for over 20 years, we do have high expectations when it come to food and service, but we also are reasonable customers and easy to please if restaurant can deliver just MEET expectations (doesn’t have to but doesn’t hurt to be EXCEED expectations). $22 for Bolognese like a half bowl portion might value $10, but with the lack of sauce and meat is not really worth to try, it said most popular item, we should have talk to manager and sent the food back (we don’t like to do that) so hope this review will help to better you. We not rushing back nor coming back. We had the best Spaghetti bolognese in Brussel, Belgium and hasn’t found a place that can MEET or EXCEED it.
