    Can't go wrong with this Italian restaurant! The food is made with fresh delicious ingredients and skillfully cooked. The service friendly but not over fussy. Just wish this restaurant was located closer to my home so I could go more often.

    North is always wonderful - the zucca chips are unreal, the truffle cheese bread is AMAZING. But important to note - happy hour is only served in the bar area. We were not aware of this, so booked a reservation, and the bar are was PACKED. So we had to wait a little bit for a spot there. Just something to think about if that is the vibe you are looking for!

    Enjoyed the food, but for the price I wish it came with a small salad or even some free bread. Wish they’d been better wine selection on a happy hour or maybe not better but just more options available. Overall, we still had a very enjoyable evening together and no real complaints.

    There was a preset menu which we weren’t aware of (Valentine’s Day) with no vegetarian options on the main course. Food was okay and price was high for the food we ordered. Prefer the a la carte menu better as there Re more options for people with dietary restrictions.

    We loved the taste of the food once we received it. It took a VERY long time due to the kitchen needing to make the Salsa Verde sauce for the Carpaccio. We were updated on the issue from the management but only after we had waited quite some time for our meal. We should have been offered an alternative since we were on a time limit over our lunch hour for work. The food tasted wonderful once we got it, but it was still quite frustrating. Hopefully this is a one time issue since we love the food.

    We had great food and service! We appreciated the quieter booth near the wall. I would possibly encourage you to have more booths by the wall for more privacy! It is one reason we don’t dine there as much as we just appreciate quieter and more private seating. Thank you!

    I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt that I should. Let me start by saying the food was phenomenal- super yummy and fresh. Delish! My problem, however, was that despite making a reservation, the staff acted as though they didn’t know where to seat us, and we were rushed through our meal. (Granted, we were only a party of 2, but it shouldn’t really matter.) The waitress asked us halfway through our appetizers, “so, just appetizers today?” which made us feel pressured to hurry up. This all made sense when, as soon as we received our entrees, we were asked to move to a smaller table for two, as they had a big party coming in who needed our table. Needless to say, my friend and I were a bit annoyed by this. Again, food and atmosphere were great. But our experience was definitely affected by us feeling rushed/us needing to switch tables. I would recommend North for the food, but I hope anyone who visits has a better experience than we had.
