fun atmosphere and good food

It is a bit noisy but it seems to be a very popular place. Food was good, fresh pasta and very good appetizers ( try the prosciutto and meat balls). Dessert was too sweet tough. Overall good for the money

We came to North for a family birthday dinner. We had reservations and did not have to wait long to be seated. The service was slow and inattentive. Our server was more interested in the tables of customers that he knew. The food was served as if it was a big chore for him. The food was good, we had... More

The most delicious gluten free pasta I've ever had, hands down. The bolognese sauce was savory, meaty and just the right consistency. Excellent, prompt, friendly service.

This is an all around family favorite. The quality of food is excellent. The menu is creative but comforting. The service is friendly. Definitely reservations whenever possible. The drink menu seems to change often which is fun. The best of Cherry Creek!

I had a delightful dinner with friends at this beautiful restaurant. This was the second time I have eaten at North. I ordered the Zucca chips for an appetizer and the Tortelloni for dinner. The Zucca chips melt in your mouth and the Tortelloni was probably one of the nicest pasta dishes I have had in a very long time.... More

I really enjoy this restaurant! I love how clean and comfortable the atmosphere with the lovely staff (always willing to help or share what's new on the menu) I've been her for both a casual happy hour and die dinner - both great experiences. Here are the must try's: (1) bruschetta (2) seasonal vegetables salad (3) bacon and egg pizza... More

I stopped in for lunch and started with the chef's board and then the Italian farm salad for entree. Everything tasted so fresh. The service was good, even though it was busy there was always somebody helping out. Among the many busy restaurants in Cherry Creek, North Italia is worth the wait.

We arrived well ahead of our reservation and enjoyed drinks at he bar served by very nice bartenders. Impressive and proud selections of Colorado based drinks await your decision. I would call the interior contemporary rustic.... More

We enjoyed Italia for dinner and included drinks and the cauliflower as an appetizer. The staff were attentive and welcoming and the pasta was cooked al dente, which is really saying something in having recently returned from Italy! We look forward to a return to try other pasta dishes and possibly brunch!

Went there with a group of people and had a wonderful and tasty dinner. Kale chips? were fantastic and so was the House salad with a light dressing. Pasta Strompezzi was very delicious but serve too cold for my taste. The wine list was impressive too and the desert were spectacular. Our server was very attentive and responsive, even for... More
