We were staying down the street at JW Marriott and decided to stop here for brunch prior to catching our flight home to Chicago. The menu for brunch offers you breakfast options or lunch options. We decided on breakfast. When we walked in, the hostess was great and friendly and the waitress gave us an overview of the restaurant. The... More

Four of us had a later night dinner here and all were pleased with their selections. It began with fresh and warm bread (of course), followed by Sausage & Bean Soup; Arancini (crispy rice, scamoza and red sauce); Burrata al Panna; Kale Salad; Funghi Pizza; and Tagliatelle Bolognese, the last two enhanced by red pepper flakes that we requested. Their... More

Fox restaurant group is good. I can’t recall one bad dinner at one of their restaurants. North offers surprising taste combinations at very reasonable process. The atmosphere is lively and service is perfect. My favorite dishes are the beet salad and the salmon dish (the best salmon dish anywhere!). The Nutella trifle is sublime (I would never think of combining... More

This WAS a 4 -5 star restaurant for us in the past. We're not from Denver but we try to get to North as much as possible. The rosemary chicken and strozzapreti are great dishes. We had good service in the past, and the manager was friendly and checked on us. On 5/26/14, we showed up at 5:15 and asked... More

Very chic bar and restaurant. Clearly a favorite for locals to meet up for dates, fun, or after work. We hung out in the bar for a while which was cool. Dinner was top notch. You have to order the zuccha chips. Just do it, ignore your waistline. All dishes were fantastic. The scallops just perfectly cooked.

Stopped in for dinner without reservation on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant was busy but we were able to find a table in the bar immediately. Menu was great- scallops were scrumptious. Had a great cocktail with a lovely decoration of an orchid floating in it. Would definitely check out North again!

A Cherry Creek North shopping expedition was the perfect way to catch up with a longtime girlfriend. Walking, chatting, spectating, looking for special things. She chose the North Italia early on as our lunch spot, just from the appearance. We circled through the 2nd and 3rd avenue shops and came back. Not too crowded for late lunch on a Friday,... More

Very average Italian food. They claim to be authentic Italian cuisine, but lots of nasty, cream based sauces and not homemade pasta. Don't waste your time...go to 7-11 and get some Chef Boyardee, its about the same!
