This was our first visit. Well worth the 30 minute drive. Everything we ordered was great--artichoke and grilled cauliflower starters, scallops, seasonal vegetable salad, cocktail, wine. Everybody working there from hostesses, waitpersons, busters, to valets--was delightful. Truly no exceptions.

Love both locations and look forward to eating there as soon as I return to AZ for the winter from Boston. The food and service are always great. Love the beer selection. Made the mistake of going Sunday before a concert at Symphony Hall. The noise level made the meal un enjoyable. Did not order dessert because we just wanted to get out. We will go again, just not on a Sunday when there is an all day happy hour.

My husband and I went here for my birthday and it was a great experience! The wine list was robust and we both took advantage of the bigger pour - still kept the driver in the legal limit whereas a second glass might not have. I have a dairy intolerance and they worked with me to get a dish and side that did not compromise flavor! Unfortunately, they don't have any dairy free desserts, so I had to pay the consequences to take advantage of my free birthday dessert (it was worth it!!). Can't wait to go back!

I Usually love this place. My Seasonal Salad had a hair in it. I know it happens from time to time, but when I'm paying this much for my food I'm putting them on a higher standard AND it's a Fox restaurant. Then we sort of got a little bit of attitude (just not as friendly) after I let them know about the hair. Disappointed with this location.

We were in Phoenix for business staying downtown at the Hyatt. We went on Open Table to find a yummy restaurant in the area. We chose North Italia. It was about a 20 minute drive. When we arrived, we only waited under 5 minutes for a table for 2. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We shared a salad and a short ribs entre. The food was so delicious! Their pastas are made fresh daily! So happy to hear this restaurant is in 2 locations in So. California! We will definitely tell our friends and dine again at their local restaurants!

North is by far my favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant! We've taken many friends there, had birthday celebrations, impressed out of town guests!!

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a staycation at the Biltmore, and Ubered over to North for dinner. We had two appetizers, a pizza, a pasta and a bottle of wine for just at $100. All the food was incredible, and our service was the highlight. I believe the gentleman's name is Xander...He made our dinner even that much more special by his prompt service, recommendations, general knowledge and hospitality. I complimented him at the end of our meal, but I wish I had asked to speak to the manager to reaffirm how wonderful he was. While our interaction with him stood out, all interactions with the North staff was pleasant and hospitable. You can tell everyone is well-trained and enjoys their job. \n\nWe will be back for another special occasion meal!

Sadly, this dinner at North Italia was terrible. We dined with friends in for the holiday and had promised them a great evening, based upon a prior visit. We made a reservation and arrived on time. We sat and waited at least 15 minutes while five young ladies chatted at the hostess counter. We finally prompted them and were seated. We were only given two menus for four people, as the hostess stated the menus were 'stuck together'. We ordered drinks, and they were given to the wrong people when served. We waited quite a while before the waitress returned for our food order. We then flagged her down a few minutes later to add an appetizer. The dinners arrived before the appetizer, and arrived piecemeal. First two of us were served, then a few minutes later another, then finally the fourth dinner arrived. The waitress returned and grabbed my wife's plate just as my wife was taking her first bite, stating that the 'chef isn't finished with this'. She returned minutes later with the plate, which now boasted woody parsley. The appetizer arrived when we were nearly finished with our dinners, along with the parmesan I had requested when I was served. The waitress blamed the table next to us for taking up so much of her time with their ordering. Our water was never replenished, and we were never asked if we would like additional drinks. We decided to have dessert elsewhere. All in all, it was a terrible embarrassment to have taken our guests here.

North is one of our favorite places and we chose it for Christmas Eve dinner because we wanted to go somewhere special in case it was our last date night before baby (and we couldn't travel to be with our family during the holidays because the baby is due any time). As always, it lived up to our expectations. I had the chicken parm for the first time and wow! It was the perfect dish. The tomato soup was perfect and the grilled bread that came with my husband's bolognese was amazing. He also loved the bolognese. Thanks for making our Christmas Eve/pre-baby date night so special!

North Italia is one of my favorite restaurants. I discovered it about 4 years ago, and have loved it ever since. Creative italian menu, consistently good food creatively prepared. Who doesn't love black pasta (from squid ink). I'm not much of a dessert person, so that's about the only thing I cannot comment on. Highly recommend their Sunday deals. Happy hour all day with cheese boards and bruschetta to boot. Yum.

Really disappointed in this place. The food and cocktails were average at best. Our server was very new on his 2nd day which can be overlooked with genuine effort but there was none. My Bellini was fresh and tasty (only good thing) but my friend's Bloody Mary was awful with some kind of cheese in it (think it was an Italian twist but abhorrent). I had Nonnas dish which was quite bland with no cheese or veggies. Very unmemorable. Friend had Americano which was barely room temperature and mediocre. Only good thing was they gave us 2 drinks for free but it didn't make up for the rest of it. This is the 1st negative review of my life but I would never return. Not sure why it's highly rated?

It's good sometimes to stick to the basics and avoid the elaborate. North Italia seems to do this fairly well. I also like the simple menu, soup, salads, pizza's and some pasta dishes. They also have plenty of gluten free options for most dishes. Starting with an interesting cocktail names apricot limonata I went on to enjoy soup and some Bolognese - sold as their house speciality -l might not have broadcast that but it was okay. Unfortunately we chose a night when the heavens opened which ruffled feathers of those sitting in the patio and briefly affected the ambiance. I'd go again but to be honest l prefer their sister restaurant, by the same name, over in Kierland Commons.

Well, after reading the reviews, I was expecting a great food experience, and a bit on the loud side. The place is so loud, that I had a sore throat when we left from all the yelling across the table to my friends! That is never a good way to enjoy any meal. My suggestion is to only eat on the patio, unless you are only with 1 other person and you are cheek-to-cheek. I ordered the beet salad for my dinner that cost $11. Greens, a few yellow beets, a few slices of radishes the size of a regular dinner salad. It is true that I did not have to make it myself, but if I had, it would have cost me 75 cents! Sorry, this was not a winner for me. My daughter ordered the mussels that were way too salty to enjoy. The manager made no offer to take it off the bill. The others in our party enjoyed their meals, but not wowed.\nWe'll go elsewhere next time.

The pizza (1/2 prosciutto, 1/2 meats) was good. My wife didn't like the fig jam on the prosciutto side of the pizza, but I did. The pesto chicken pasta with pine nuts was good, as was the salad. This restaurant is very loud, and is probably louder when weather requires the doors to the outdoor seating to be closed. The only on-site parking option is valet, which is complimentary besides a tip; but of course there appears to be free parking available at surrounding businesses if you want to do that.

My wife and I have been to this restaurant several times before. The food is excellent as is the service.

Of course, they still get some siren noise from time to time. \n\nThe Chicken Parmesan, which you wouldn't think to order in a restaurant like this, is exceptional. The Arichini (3 risotto balls) is exceptional as well. My wife had the salmon and enjoyed that as well. Again our server was one of the most delightful waitresses we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Oh, I forgot to mention that I believe every Sunday they have happy hour which is half price on house wine by the glass and sangria by the pitcher. Also valet parking is free. Good times in Arcadia!

My date had the Pig pizza, he said it was very, very salty. And I had the Grilled Cauliflower, again very salty. Well apparently we ordered all the wrong food. Not sure we will return.

I do wish they had poached the egg instead of frying it. It was a little to hard to pour its liquid gold over the cauliflower. My husband had the chicken salad which was rather uneventful and rather small. My daughter was very pleased. She had the scrambled eggs. She got toast and smashed potatoes.

I have eaten at the Kierland location before and it is lovely. The Arcadia location was very busy the night we were there. We had a reservation, but was asked to wait. We asked for a few items like ice with our water and never received it. We asked for a half order and were not obliged and were not offered any alternatives. Our appetizer was cold. It just seemed like the staff was stretched too thin. Our main dishes tasted very good. They were hot and delicious. We will give this location another try. It could have been an off night.

I responded to an email inviting me to Easter Brunch at the Fox Restaurants. I chose North Italia because it's Easter Brunch offering was unique, yet traditional Easter fare. It was very nice to get a table for two outside in the shade. Our reservation was for 2pm. The weather was glorious and our meal was fantastic. The service superb; the sangria delicious. I thought the prices were reasonable even though it was a holiday. It was my guest's first visit and my second visit within the month. Definitely would go back again.

Unfortunately, we were there right as the sun was setting and no blinds on windows. Service was so-so.

I had a good dinner. The food was top notch. But I kinda wonder exactly what this place is going for. It was far too noisy and bustling to be a romantic spot however the menu and prices are something that would suggest more than a place for friends to go and hang out. I wanted something with a fun atmosphere with great food but from the way the snooty waiter tried to push the expensive wines and seemed to turn his nose up when we didn't spend more money, you would think we were in a fine dining restaurant. All in all we spent $75 for a bottle of the least expensive wine, an appetizer and a split entree. Frankly, I could have spent less at places with much better atmosphere. The thing that annoyed me the most is the way the waiter seemed to judge us when we decided to split an entree. It wasn't that I couldn't afford it, it's that we were going to a party and didn't want to eat too much. Regardless, I don't appreciate passive aggressive judging for what I decide to order. If I wanted to spend over $100, there are better places to spend it. I would absolutely recommend the food. But that's about it.

Food was great, but the amount of cigarette smoke in the dining room made it difficult to enjoy my dinner. The restaurant has chairs out front (presumably for people waiting for tables) which smokers sit in and smoke. It is right beside the front entrance in violation of the 20 foot rule. In addition, during the cooler nights the restaurant has many of the windows and doors open to allow the restaurant to get lots of nice 'fresh' air. Sadly, the smokers outside the front door ruin this and fill the restaurant with cigarette smoke. Fox RC usually does a great job, but this one is a failure for those of us who like to breathe.

His beet salad and salted caramel budino were excellent. \n\nThe location is easier to access than North in Scottsdale and the complementary valet parking was quick and easy to use.

North has a great menu, wonderful employees, and never disappoints on the food front. Love the Italian salad (would like to see it back on a plank), the house cocktails, and donuts, but the main courses are all superb and just the right size. Always a pleasure.

We live closer to the Kierland North, but we think Arcadia is better. on a Sunday night had a half price bottle of wine, pizza of the night with smoked cheese, bacon and figs- delicious and perfect size to share, seasonal kale salad also to share, very healthy and filling, and a side of meatballs, a little salty but even enough to have some left. so pleasant out on the patio, nice service, always reliable for a FRC spot.

I really enjoy the food here, but I won't be back. The noise level from the combination of hard surfaces everywhere you look AND the volume of the music means that this place is fine if you don't want to converse or if you and your mealmates are very few in number. More than 3 and you won't be able to talk without shouting. Please, at least turn down the volume!

We drove to the Arcadia location from south Ahwatukee after examining all the descriptions of Fox concept restaurants. We had made a reservation, but despite the crowd we were seated immediately by a very pleasant young lady. Our waiter (Jon D) greeted us immediately asking if we'd been there before. He made a couple of recommendations and we were off to a great dining experience. My partner and I ordered the goat cheese bruschetta; grilled eggplant, roasted red peppers, saba, and oregano on crusty bread. Wonderful. Just enough for two.\nWe decided on heirloom beet salads to start. PEOPLE if you live within 300 miles of this restaurant do yourself a favor, get thyself to North Italia and order this salad. Roasted beets, apple, arugula, hazelnuts, ricotta cheese, and a lemon creme fraiche dressing. Husband and I both moaned at our first bite. Moaned. Over a salad. THAT's how good it is. If we hadn't already ordered I'd have canceled the main course and had another...\nWe had already decided to split a Pig Pizza. Pepperoni, salami, sausage, and soppressata which was described to us as a spicy type of pepperoni. I was born and raised in AZ, teethed on tacos, and love nothing more than Hatch green chili, but this soppressata needs to be described as HOT. The one and only 'negative' (too strong a word) of our whole experience. \nWe will be back. With big coolers. To take lots of the beet salad home.

We were seated right away. The couple next to us had a young child who was well behaved. I didn't think of this restaurant as a young family gathering place but it appeared to be this evening. We really enjoyed our wonderful waiter. The grilled artichoke was excellent. My vegetable lasagna was to die for- one of the best I've tasted. My wife had the bolognese.\nOverall, an extremely surprising dining experience worthy of the trip and expense.

I had a very good dinner here with two other companions. The restaurant is very well-designed. The service was excellent. Two of us had pasta, which was delicious and the third had the short ribs, which could have had better sides. We shared an absolutely delicious combination appetizer plate of cheeses, bread (a bit dry and over-toasted) and vegetables.

I'm familiar with the North located in Kierland, so the food was amazing as usual. This location was by far my favorite. It looks small from the street and has a nice sign at the front, but the restaurant itself is wide open and large. The decor is wonderful.\n\nWe sat outside on the patio per our reservation request and the patio was beautiful. It was a nice night. The lights were pretty and you could see the street but they put enough foliage that you weren't listening or seeing too much of the traffic.\n\nOur waitress was very friendly and checked on us often. The food was perfect and we were left extremely happy.

I've been to North many times, this was my first time for brunch there. Bloody Marys were spicy, delicious, and poured with a heavy hand. I got the egg scramble and it was loaded with cheese and veggies and very tasty. All of the brunch menu items looked great. My friends enjoyed their meals as well. I had kind of given up on North for dinner due to its high price tags for underwhelming food, but would come back for brunch again.

Our group of 6 (4 in from out of town) went to North for a fun night out with great food and drink. We were not disappointed. I believe we hit all aspects of the menu between our diverse group and everyone was happy. The wait staff and kitchen are willing to adjust their menu to each persons liking. So our particular and vegetarian eaters were thrilled with their meals. Our appetizers; cheese board and arancini were a hit, the salads were nice and everyone enjoyed their dinner. The favorites at our table were the ricotta gnocchi, strozzapreti and the tortellini. We rounded out our meal by sharing the Tiramisu and pistachio gelato. \nThe only thing our group would likely not order again was the arancini. It was fine but not as good as I have had at other Italian restaurants and with all the other amazing items on the menu why order something just okay.

Lively and fun setting, if a bit off the beaten track for the major resorts. We found North Arcadia on Open Table, and a true find it was. Server Erin offered great suggestions, beginning with the Fonduta appetizer, moving on to a superb seasonal vegetable salad, and then a sublime spinach Tortelloni to accompany our main course entrees of chicken and pork. Wine selection was nicely matched to the food. Our only problem was the we ordered too much food, even though we shared everything between the two of us except the entrees. We tried to convince manager Chris to open a branch for us on the East Coast! Great food, great service, lively atmosphere and an unpretentious setting unlike some of the more-expensive restaurants that top the Phoenix/Scottsdale ratings. Go to NORTH Arcadia for a great meal.

We went for Valentine's day and really enjoyed the preset menu they were featuring. My wife and I started off with the arancini and braised short rib, they were awesome! The short rib had a horseradish aioli that complemented the appetizer so well. For our main course we had the winter lasagna and the strip. Both were out of the world. And for dessert we enjoyed a dark chocolate tart and the salted caramel boudini. I don't know if these are regular items on their menu, but they were absolutely outstanding. We had such a wonderful experience and highly recommend it to anyone in the area.

Definitely a good choice for a first date, tenth date, an anniversary, or just a night out with friends.

This was our first visit to Italia North but definitely won't be our last! The inviting charm started with the valet and carried troughout our experience. It was like dining at a friends house...if your friend is an award-winning chef. The staff were attentive, helpful and knowledgeable. The dining experience was energized by the open kitchen concept and we enjoyed watching the technique of the head chef as we dined. The menu was not overwhelming but had ample variety for any diner. We started with the artichoke and it was so delicious that we couldn't wait to taste the next course. For our main we both had the made fresh daily pasta...the best thing we have ever eaten!!! I don't know how to describe how wonderful the food was, but we had to shake the chef's hand and thank him before leaving! I have already recommend Italia North to all my friends and co-worker's. We can't wait to return and to check out more of the Fox restaurant's!

Food was great. Service was great. The calamari was especially good. I had chicken Parmesan, which was fabulous. Wife had gnocchi with braised beef, also delicious. Server was polite and food came out quick. We sat next to open kitchen which was fun, however, one of the staff members moved a garbage can within about 3 ft of our table shortly after seating, and it remained there for the duration of our meal. That was the only negative in the whole experience. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is kind of loud.

I love this restaurant. Although I invariably order the Branzino, because it is a fish that I love, the preparation at North is the ONLY restaurant where it improves upon a plain, whole fish grilled with its head and tail on, and nothing more than olive oil, salt and pepper on the outside and fresh dill and lemons/limes on the inside....which is obviously the way I prepare it.\n\nWe ARE on your mailing list and just want to be advised when the next 'communal' (?) dinner is held.\n\nWhatever you are doing in that kitchen... do NOT stop!!
