About North Italia – Kansas City
Treat your Mother this Mother's Day! We will be open early at 10am and be offering select brunch items!
We’ve turned a modern lens on traditional Italian cooking. North Italia – Kansas City 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 Italia.

North Italia – Kansas City Ratings and Reviews

Menu is consistent and offers ample options for all palates. We enjoy WED half of bottle night. For the best table plan a later reservation ( after 1930).
Atmosphere is fun, lively, and great for casual dining or celebration dinner. Multiple large tables were hosting GNO.... Overall just a cool place!

Always a great value and fun time! My husband and I love to come for happy hour if we can make it in time! Wish it went until 6:30pm for us working in the city and needing that extra time to make it in time :) Just an idea to extend it until 6:30pm!

We made a reservation for 4 people at 6pm. When we arrived there were a plethora of empty tables, but they chose to place us where two of us had to battle the sun for most of the evening even though we objected to our placement and asked to be moved.
One of our dinners (salmon and salad) arrived with the salmon still breathing even though it was ordered medium. It was sent back and when it reappeared more than 10 minutes later, it was still flopping around. It went back again and now some 15 minutes later reappeared, this time dead. However, the other 3 of us had finished our meals and had the pleasure of watching our fourth compadre eat her meal.
North did remove the salmon from our bill (like we would have paid for it anyway?), but the meal was ruined by our location and the ridiculous inability of the chef to cook a piece of salmon.
I'm thinking the next time I eat out, I'll head South, not North.

The last time I reviewed North Italia, unfortunately, I did not give it the best rating. This time our food and service was noticeably improved, especially on Labor Day when the restaurant offered a 25% off coupon. The place was packed when we arrived. Our waitress was working very hard to manage all of her tables and did an excellent job. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I am glad that things improved, because it has always been one of my favorite places and I hope to bring friends here to dine in the near future.

Labor Day 2016 - service was very, very slow. Waiter tried but, must have been slammed without enough staff.
Small portions, but good quality. Very open restaurant. Crowded, with tables too close together. Disappointed. Prefer other Italian restaurants options in Johnson County.

In the past, North has been one of my favorite restaurants. It has been a disappointment in the last year, getting worse with every visit. They have cut back ,on their food, their service, etc. They try to tell the public that they not longer make ther famous sun dried tomato butter, but they do. It only comes if you specifically ask for it. They don't really offer bread service unless you ask. for it. The chicken in the salads has shrunk. it's tasteless.The artichokes, are tough. Overall, it's highly evident that they are cutting corners, to cut costs. Not appealing to me. I'm always happy to pay increased prices to cover increasing food costs, but don't cut quality or service. Won't work for those of us who truly like to dine.

North is one of our "go to"'spots. Great menu and the food is always good. Upscale feel meets casual dining in a relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend the Happy Hour deals on Wednesday and Sunday, with half price wine bottles and Chef's Board, Chef's pizza and other specials. The patio is a nice place to spend the evening!

We tried 3 appetizers and one was the calamari. It was very overcooked and had no flavor! The other two were pretty good, especially the grilled cauliflower!
The rest of the meal was just so-so and not as good as what I remembered from my last visit. Kind of disappointed and wondering why the attention to detail in service and food quality was lacking

Our last two visits were disappointing. We have been fans of this restaurant since they opened. Food has always been great and service exceptional. Lately have noticed a lot of turnover with the waitstaff and quality of service is not what we are used to. It is slow and inattentive. More disappointing is the quality of the food on the last two visits. Salad greens are wilted. Chicken Parmesan not what it used to be. We will probably give it one more chance but if it isn't improved we will have to find another regular favorite.

It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we wanted to celebrate in a nice Italian restaurant. North Italia has excellent food and the service was good, but it was not possible to talk due to the noise level. It has very high ceilings and nothing to block the sound. The tables were so close we could easily reach out and touch the people sitting next to us.

The food was really good. The fried risotto balls were amazing...although we asked our server if that if would be enough for six people and he said yes. When they came out it was just a serving of 3. We definitely would have ordered another order if we had known and thought we were covered because we asked. The rest of the food as great too. And the house margarita is awesome. It was really loud in there, which I am sure is just because of how it's built, just not great for convo. I would go there again for sure. They do the classics right.

We love North. Food is always good and the servers are attentive but in a relaxed way. Tab will be a bit higher than other places of similar price range, but if you go for Happy Hour and dine on the specials, it's a great deal.
