North Italia – Kansas City Ratings and Reviews
Our meals were oh so good! There were six of us, we all ordered something different and all of us loved our meals. We also had special food and wine requests, and all were handled so sweetly and professionally. If I lived anywhere near this restaurant it would be my local favorite for sure !!
My late lunch was terrific. Our waitress friendly and appeared at all the "right" times. Her recomendations were spot on. Her name, Alex. I will return and order the same dish and perhaps branch out, order more and share. I dined at 1 PM to miss the lunch rush and it worked out perfectly.
Terrific Chicken Salad Sandwich!
A friend & I went to North yesterday for lunch before we went to see the Overland Park 9/11 Memorial. He has been to North many times for dinner but never for lunch.
I absolutely love their Tuscan Chicken Salad sandwich. If you haven’t tried them, order their “fries” with the sandwich. They are actually twice cooked fries. The shape is irregular and look like a frie/lattke/smashed shape. They are very good. He didn’t order the chicken salad but went for the Grilled Chicken sandwich instead, which he said was very good.
If you haven’t tried North for lunch you need to put this place on your list. Very good food and service.
Disappointing anniversary diner. This was my third visit and after this experience I won't be back. SLOW service in a restaurant that was not crowded - took 20 minutes to bring two glasses of wine to the table. The salmon was so salty my wife could hardly eat it and the amount of arugula (not noted on the menu) was unacceptable.
We were so impressed with our waiter, who seemed to know every ingredient in every dish we asked him about. The grilled cauliflower appetizer was light but delicious, standout entrees included the chicken parmesan and divers' scallops (really juicy and tasty), and the house pinot grigio wine was a great complement to the meal. Would totally recommend to friends and family.
Consistently great food; my only complaint is the pace of the meal-they bring your entrees before you are done starters/appetizers; or fail to clear your starter plate before delivering entree since it is ready so fast, forcing you to hold your starter plate while they place your entree on the table. This has happened on almost every occasion. I get they want to turn tables but it's annoying given the price you are paying for your meal and drinks and it's not a fast food restaurant.
We enjoyed a great Friday night meal at North for 4 people. We requested a booth online and they honored our request. Booths are especially nice for 4-6 people.
Friday nights are pretty lively and on the loud/energetic side. Not for everyone.
We started with a pitcher of red sangria, calamari and a charcuterie plate. The calamari is well prepared with very light breading and served with a good amount of arugula. the charcuterie was interesting. We had some pasta main dishes and salmon. Both were satisfying.
Outside dining is nice in the shoulder seasons, but most outside dining faces west so not great in the heat of the summer sun.
Sundays is a great deal for all day happy hour menu of selected menu items and drinks.
Absolutely love to dine here. I've been a few time and each time was great. The waitstaff is friendly and diligent. The food is delicious and well worth the price. Perfect place for dates or casual nights out with friends. The dinning room was loud with conversations, but with a spacious outdoor dinning option the indoor noise can be avoided (weather permitting) with that option provided.
North seems to be slipping. Party of 6 and almost everyone had to have their martinis redone. Food was over salted. We like this place and will come back but the management needs to staff the bar properly and ensure drinks are out faster as well as check the salt shaker. Too heavy handed.
This restaurant would be top notch if the staff was trained properly. Ex. The starter was delivered and consumed before drinks arrived. The second round arrived midway through dinner. Terrible pacing - for the price - this type of horrible service killed the experience.
Went for their 25% off Labor Day deal. Service was pretty fast, considering how busy they were. Always feel cramped when they seat us at a table rather than a booth. Feel like I am sitting elbow to elbow with the people next to me. Still a great find and will always go back.
We ate here on the Friday of Labor Day weekend. Because we can't resist, we started with the zucca chips. They were so good. I had the branzino and my companion had the chicken parm. Both were really good. He said the pasta that came with the parm was really good and a great match of flavors. He loves the kale salad as well. We split a hazelnut dessert that was delicious. Good choice of wines by the glass. Service was very professional. Parking is on a huge lot, so no issues there. Noise level quite energetic so if that matters to you, be advised.
Excellent experience. The food was delicious, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere was fun. I was surprised the dress code was more casual than I anticipated, which is actually pretty great. The place has high ceilings so it can get very loud -- a minor complaint, but they should turn down the music. When you have to talk over the crowd sitting next to you AND the music, it's not conducive to much conversation! But overall, it was a very nice dinner out (celebrating my birthday) and I enjoyed it....we will definitely be back.
