North Italia – Kansas City Ratings and Reviews
Seated promptly (with reservation). Waiter was very quick and brought us our drinks in a flash. I had the Seasonal Vegetable Salad with Salmon and it was the best salad I'd had in a while. It had a ton of salmon on it which surprised me. Also loved the Zucca chips which are free.
Since I moved here from LA twelve years ago, I have been looking for a great Italian restaurant. North was amazing! The mussels were so good and the Squid Ink Mafaldine is my new favorite dish. Besides having great food, the service was impeccable. Our waiter seemed like they loved their job and made great recommendation and the manager was caring and genuinely concerned that each table had a great experience. This is a place I will tell all about and we will be back even though it is a drive for us.
I brought my Fiance here for his birthday and I have to say, this is the best pasta I've had in my life! we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service was outstanding. I've been to Italy multiple times and I don't think anything there even compared to the dishes we had at north Italia. We're coming back this weekend!
This was our first experience at North. The food was incredible. Can't wait to go back. The waitress needs some more training but she had only been working there for 2 weeks. The seating is close to others, may be bothersome for couples. I would go again for date night or couples dinner. So happy to find this place!
We had reservations and we still waited 5-7 minutes to be seated. Too much time between getting our food once we finished our appetizer. At that time we could have been served bread and butter, but were not. We watched other tables receive bread and butter and we had to ask for ours after our food arrived. The food was outstanding and worth the drive and wait. We had calamari for an appetizer and hands down the best in the city. We will be back and hope that service is better. It may have just been a fluke.
We ate here on a Friday night. My companion likes the kale salad and had it again. I had the house salad and was reminded how much i like the dressing. We started with zuke chips (yum) which went well with the salads. He had the chicken strozzaprezzi and i had the grilled branzino. The fish comes with farro and i really like it. We had some nice glasses of wine to go with it and enjoyed the dinners. Service is professional. Parking is a shared lot, so there's plenty. This place is loud when it is busy, so be advised.
We visit North often on Wednesdays to take advantage of the food/wine specials! Staff is friendly, know their wines, and fun to talk with - they make the evening more fun for sure.
We had Brianna this week and we will request her again. Really enjoyed her!
Great night out with friends. Short wait at the bar which is a good set up and good bartenders. Cool décor and vibe in this place. Good variety of dinner options. Our waiter was excellent and gave his thoughts on the menu which were right on. Overall good spot to go and reasonably priced. It will be a good spot to be when it warms up with their outdoor patio.
love this restaurant...but the food is overpriced. I had a salad with chicken and a soft drink my bill was 27$ including tax and tip. I can go to many restaurants that are good that are not that pricey...will start remembering how much this is. Wish you would revisit the price points.
So loud, glad the food was great. Fun, creative and simple menu. About 10 bites into the meal, we stopped talking because we had to repeat/yell everything we said to each other. Tables were so close together- add the extremely loud music, I felt like I was at a concert. Disappointed I couldn't enjoy my date.
My wife and I celebrated an anniversary at dinner.We were very happy with the food and service. Our server Blake was attentive. However,what made the evening very special was Rosie, theGeneral Manager.She checked on us throughout the evening and made us feel very special.Like we were part of the family.
We went to North for a late Sunday afternoon lunch. North has excellent deals on Sunday… It's happy hour all day and there are bargain prices on certain appetizers and pizzas. We ordered the delicious zucchini chips, and then split the mushroom polenta and a chicken salad. The kitchen graciously split the dishes for us on separate plates. The portions were extremely generous. The service is excellent. The staff is polite and professional. North is consistently excellent.
New Years Eve. Limited menu but food served cold. Replacement took long time. Waiter could not split bill right and we finally gave up and settled it among ourselves. We have been regular customers on monthly basis since North opened and never had a bad experience before. Had advanced reservations but they were not full. Glade we've had good experience there before or else would not consider returning. $55 pre-fix menu was not a bargain either.
North Italia was AMAZING! My mom and I went for lunch the day after Christmas while I was visiting from Chicago. Our server was phenomenal and we never had to wait for anything. He made great suggestions on which craft cocktails to get that would compliment our meal. The menu is filled with great dishes so we decided to do 2 appetizers and 2 entrees. The portions were nicely sized so we also had leftovers. Each dish was unique, flavorful and absolutely delicious. As a Chicago girl, I was extremely impressed to find this foodie gem in Kansas City!
