North, exemplifies a culinary tradition that blends sophisticated Italian cuisine with the comfort of traditional cooking techniques. The menu features dishes that are created from the freshest ingredients without the unnecessary adornments of cream or heavy sauces. Crispy thin crust pizza, wood roasted entrees, pasta specialties, and a variety of antipasti round out the menu. The world-class wine list features 30 selections by the glass, terzo (third of a bottle) or bottle. North also offers a variety of specialty cocktails including Lemon Nortes made with Limoncello liqueur and Frizzantes, a flute of Prosecco sparkling wine with fresh fruit puree.

Just as I would do it

If I was to open a restaurant, I would try to make it just like this place. The food was great. The grilled cauliflower is so good - just go for it! Pastas are fantastic. Service was on top of everything .

I was in Denver for a business meeting. My friend and I wandered a bit to find a nice place to eat. We were drawn to the open air feeling of the restaurant and the pretty flower boxes lining the outside dining area. We were sat outside. The waiter was awesome. Very attentive, but not overly. He had tremendous knowledge... More

Our group of ten dined here on a Thursday evening while in Denver on business. The meatballs and calamari appetizers we ordered came out quickly and were very good. I ordered the chickem parm and I will say it may have been the best I have ever had. The service was spot on with the salads delivered just as the... More

Stopped in for a glass of wine and an appetizer at the bar. Bartender was very nice and approachable and she poured a few samples for me to try before I decided on a Barolo. I would definitely go back for dinner when in town.

North Cherry Creek was a great surprise. There is a north in Tucson which we have visited and this one in Cherry Creek was much better. Although the menu was the same, the food was excellent and the service was efficient. Salads were fast and very fresh and the price point is excellent.

Passing through Denver and decided to have dinner here. Felix waited on us, and were we glad he did. It is not often you find a waiter that knows his food and wines in as much depth as he did. My husband had the bolognese and I had the Spicy Shrimp. Both dishes were superb. Pasta perfectly cooked. The bolognese... More

Perfect location! Perfect service! Perfect pizza! Perfect drinks! From the ginger-vanilla vodka drinks to the funghi pizza, everything at this refreshing Italian bistro was perfect. Best pizza I've had on the Front Range (I've been to Brooklyn's pie shops many a time) with a think crisp crust and delicious cheese topping. Great place to escape from the heat and crowds... More
