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.

“Wonder-ful Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Celebrated a bday with 13 girls at Westin and wanted to be able to walk or shuttle to eat. No one lives in the area but after reading reviews I called to make a reservation a month in advance. Table was set up when we arrived. Great upbeat vibe in Kierland Commons. The manager Jaime was friendly and very accomodating! The service was fabulous and the food was really good and reasonably prices. Would go back again next time Im in the area! Thanks for a great night!

“Great for fun - noisy for business lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Hip, fun, vibrant atmosphere - nice sales and sandwiches, with fast service too. But too noisy to take business clients as its hard to hear the conversation. With family and kids? Good choice!

“First Dinner for Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Upon arrival in Scottsdale, this restaurant was recommended by the staff at our hotel (Westin Kierland Villas). Being gluten-free I was hesitant to dine at an Italian restaurant. However, NoRTH had some great options which were delicious. My wife also enjoyed her meal and it was a struggle to NOT go back several times during our vacation. We will definitely return on a future trip!
