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.

Great return visit

This was my second visit to North...and actually after my first visit I didn't think I would be back. Our first visit the waitress was SO SLOW and horrible that it got to be comical. However, the food was so good that we decided to give it another chance...and are we glad that we did. This time... read more

Love North in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Denver. Always good food and great service. It was restaurant week in Denver but the restaurant still offered their regular menu items, pasta bolognese our favorite!

This restaurant is beautifully decorated so that it is spacious but feels more intimate than it really is. The food was delicious. I had calamari prepared with greens with a delicious flavor, and the seared scallops were among the best I have eaten. The service was a little slow but very pleasant, and the food was beautifully presented. I will... More

Hadn't been here for a couple of years. Really nice people and service is good. They seem to have a less-than- efficient reservation system, but it wasn't crowded, so no problem. Food probably a notch above mediocre.

We have been here twice in the last month and have really enjoyed it. Grilled Artichoke, & Burrata appetizer both excellent! Caesar Salad unusually small (only gave this review a 4 rating due to the small size, for $8 this should have been bigger than a side salad) however, the Caesar dressing was wonderful. The highlight was the Braised Beef... More

There were 5 of us for dinner on a Saturday night at 5:30. The table was a round style booth so just worked great for 5 people. We didn't feel rushed to order so could visit and enjoy a glass of wine. The service was quite efficient and the food was delicious. I had Fall Lasagna! YUMMY. Everyone seemed pleased... More

Stopped by today to have lunch with my son. The service was excellent and the meatball sandwich was the best one I've ever had. A little pricy, but so is everything else in Cherry Creek.

Good atmosphere. There were 10 of us at our table and we all had nice meals and a good time. The starters were very nice and the mains in general were good.

I've been to this place countless times and liked it, but today I tried it for brunch for the first time. Never again. They seemed to be understaffed for starters. We waited and waited just to be asked for a drink order, at which time the waitress was already making excuses for being so slow. Our table was off kilter... More

I have to preface this by saying I'm not a big Italian food fan but was part of a dinner party that chose the restaurant. I did find a sea scallop meal that didn't have pasta with it. Came with a celery root risotto that I thought was very good. The area the restaurant is in is full of shops... More
