Description: We’ve turned a modern lens on traditional Italian cooking. North Italia is our love letter to Italy—a place that’ll make you feel like you’ve stepped off a charming side street to discover a culinary gem. After a decade in business, we’ve learned a thing or two and we’re approaching perfection in the art of handmade pasta and pizza. Every day, we start from scratch to create dishes like Strozzapreti with Bloomsdale spinach or supple ribbons of tagliatelle for our Bolognese. Our pizza is a revelation: an airy, barely chewy center embraced by a perfectly crisp crust. With the spirit of the Italian taverna, North is the place to talk shop over a cocktail or swap gossip sharing delectable chef creations.Every neighborhood would be lucky to have a place like North.

“Nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Met with a long time friend for lunch. We both wanted a salad. The menu has been changed recently.

I ordered the chicken salad which had lettuce, pine nuts, gorgonzola cheese, shredded chicken and dressing on the side. I believe the portion didn't substantiate the $11 charge. My friend ordered a salad that was served on a wood board. The server brought bread with sun-dried tomato butter. It looked tasty.

I ordered an 8oz glass of pinot gris wine for $11. Overall, the lunch cost was a bit out of proportion for the food and experience. The waiter was attentive though.

“Good Italian!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

North serves all sorts of thin crust pizzas (my favorite is the arugula and mushroom on a crispy crust) along with fresh fish and meat specials of the day. Good value for money!

“great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

A beautiful Arizona winter day and we needed to experience our lunch outdoors. The patio at North fit the bill perfectly. Great location, nice decor, the food was great and reasonably priced. Will go back again for sure.
