Even though this is a chain, this restaurant is DE-LISH! Absolutely try the calamari - it's a little different than the usual take. The decor is kinda farm-to-table and very well done. The service is fabulous. It's a great place to catch a casual bite to eat and still get good quality ingredients that are well prepared.

My wife and I were on vacation. July 23 2016. It was a booked Saturday night. Very busy. The service was outstanding, the food was better. Sorry, this was in my Drafts for a month. Now go there!

We have dined at the wonderful North Italia since it first came to Cherry Creek. It used to have a bit of flair, and although the menu has changed little, it has a great selection and a great chef. Problem is not really with the food, but with the seating management. We stopped in for a quick dinner before the... More

I've eaten at North about a dozen times over the last year and had good food and a pleasant experience each time. I go back because it is an enjoyable place to eat and sip a glass of wine. Service is friendly although can be a little on the slow side from time to time. For example, if you want... More

I hosted a business dinner for a large group (15) and the service and food were fantastic. All courses were spaced nicely and the group enjoyed our meal. Zucca chips were outrageous and addicting! Wine selection was also nice.

A great restaurant to bring friends. The food was great. The table space was roomy. The servers were very helpful and attentive. These are Italian specialties and I cannot imagine many "Italians" not finding the food authentic and delicious. Thank you.

We went for a quick lunch around 2pm on a Saturday. Restaurant was empty, lots of cooks hanging around the open style kitchen. I ordered a pasta dish, it was nasty and made me feel bloated after. It looked as if it had been sitting under a heat lamp for 20 minutes or been in a microwave, the ceramic plate... More

We grabbed a quick lunch here and it was delicious. My husband and I split the seasonal salad which was so delicious; goat cheese; fig, oranges, quinoa. He got a margarita pizza and I had the meatball appetizer. Appetizer came with six meatballs and garlic bread. So yummy!! Margarita pizza had great flavor too! Everything fresh and homemade! We sat... More

Enjoyed happy hour and then moved to our table. It probably took 30 minutes to order a bottle of wine as the waitress did not know wines and couldn't recommend. She did seek help but it was tedious. Yet, entrees were very tasty. It always seems rather bare when there is not an offering of a few slices of bread/... More
