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

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. ...
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.

The food is very good, and the atmosphere is very unique. Came to town to see my girlfriend, and this was just the place to go. Great food. Great atmosphere. Quick service. Y'alls did good this time. See you the next time I am in town!

Ordered kale salad w/chicken. Salad was barely dressed and chicken was rubbery. Have eaten here countless times and never had a bad meal. This may have been a fluke, but the chef/kitchen should never have let that chicken leave their kitchen. Disappointed.

This was a great spot for an anniversary celebration. We decided to sit outside even though it was pretty warm, and the umbrellas did a reasonable job of keeping us in the shade. All staff was friendly, and our server was able to describe the more creative dishes helpfully. This is the best pasta that I've had in the greater Kansas City area - fresh and flavorful. Prices are appropriate for the quality of the food, and the half-price bottles of wine (Wed./Sun.) plus the seal-it-and-take-it option made it a great value.

Food was above average; homemade pasta was a bit disappointing. Chicken added to the recommended tortolloni pasta dish was really tough, dry, bland.
Desserts (olive cake and chocolate tart) were delicious.
Server had great energy and attitude. We thoroughly enjoyed interacting with Jennifer!

We had the best server. She was very attentive to our group. We were there on a Sunday and they had food and drink specials all day. We also enjoyed the seating, as we were in a half circle, which is so much easier to visit.

Roasted beet salad is one I think about eating again. The bruchetta also had many layers of flavor with tomato jam goodness. Meatball pizza did not disappoint. Sangria was refreshing and well made. Satisfying Happy Hour with my husband in the late afternoon was fun and enjoyable! We will definitely return.

We have visited North 40+ times. Consistent and comfortable. We bring our 8 year old and it is always welcomed. The cauliflower appetizer is small, but wonderful. Salads are full of fun nuts and veggies. The bead is great. All the pastas are SO wonderful.
We will be back next week.
