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.

“Very Good Pasta Place”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We enjoyed a "date night" meal here during a recent trip to Scottsdale. We ordered pasta, which was really well prepared and flavorful. Our waiter was very professional and on the ball. The desserts were fantastic! I'd recommend for casual Italian.

“Most Enjoyable”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

My wife and I recently visited North and saw they had an eggplant parm pizza on the menuThat got my wife in the mood just for an eggplant parm minus the flour, but it wasn't on the menu. We asked our waiter if the kitchen could accommodate us on this one, and he came back and told us no problem. Well what we didn't know was that we were about to have the best eggplant parm ever and anywhere incl. NYC and Italy. So we hit it on two counts.....GREAT SERVICE AND A SUPERIOR MEAL. Can't ask for more than that! If you don't go here you are missing out.

“Enjoyed it”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I had the Farmer's Market salad--which was soooo good! It really filled me up. My dining companion ordered the Zucca chips appetizer--kinda like potato chips; i only ate a few (too many calories for me!) but they were very tasty! Also had a side order of grilled vegetables--they were nice!

“Great service matched by great food”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Had a very nice dinner here while visiting Scottsdale. Walking distance from Westin Kierland. We were in the very back room of the restaurant -- almost looked like an annex -- but it was probably the best place as far as a little more quiet to visit. The four of us all had different pasta dishes and everyone was pleased. Reasonable prices.
