Italian
Everyone has a favorite dish at North. Every day, our Chefs start from scratch to create handmade pizza and pasta using only the best ingredients to craft inspired dishes from the garden, farm, and sea. North defines the standards for handcrafted Italian. Our menu offers a great selection of antipasti (daily soup, charcuterie, bruschetta), salads full of seasonal ingredients, and a main entrée menu driven by both traditional Italian cuisine and lighter fresh fish dishes. North is a great neighborhood spot for family and friends to meet and share a handcrafted experience. From the food to the service, at North every detail matters.

I believe that your experience starts the moment you are greeted. The hostesses seem unenthusiastic; however, this might be contributed to the small area in which they have to work in. It was very crowded around the door. Other than that great experience.

Service getting the food was too slow. When asked, reply was “it’s coming up”. More appropriate answer would have been, let me check.

The place was fantastic! The service, food and atmosphere were great. Our waitress was very engaging and helpful when it came to the menu. The food was fresh and rich. My cocktail was pretty refreshing. Best I have had in some time. I would highly recommend making a reservation if you decide to visit. The place was very packed. We had a late dinner and the wait (without a reservation) was about an hour.

This was amazing Italian food. The white truffle garlic bread was absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the squid ink pasta and it was really good. I ordered the chicken Parmesan and it was the best I’ve ever had. The rigatoni pasta that comes with it is amazing. We ended with the hazelnut torta - really good. We were stuffed after our entrees but couldn’t resist the dessert.

Overall, I was very disappointed. First, we arrived shortly before 5:00 PM and ordered our beverages and the waitress failed to tell us that Happy Hour was starting soon and there were specials; appetizers, drinks, etc. Upon ordering as it was Friday and during lent no meat I ordered the Diver Scallops -which were lost in the risotto which was not cooked correctly as very glue-like and lots of oil seeping throughout. If there was to be another ingredient such as a vegetable it was not visible to the human eye, Also the seasonal salad which I had just last week was horrible tonight - there were very few vegetables lots of dates. I might add the salmon last week was overcooked as were the fava beans. Needless to say, my experience was not a good one which surprised me as Nort Italia has always been one of my favorites.

On a more positive note, the other three in my party seemed pleased with the entree but not so with the Bruschetta with the asparagus and prosciutto.

Hopefully next time my dining experience will be favorable and flavorable.

We come here often and it’s really a 50/50 shot of whether we will have an outstanding experience or subpar. Maddie did a phenomenal job. Super attentive. Friendly. Smiled a ton. Great hair. We had a great freakin time. This place will remain our go-to for birthdays and anniversaries.

Arrived on-time to our reservation and just had to wait 15mins for our table since it was a very busy night. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Noise level was loud outside due to a different party. I’ve loved North for over 10 years (moved from AZ) and was happy they opened a location in Dallas. It’s a great place for lunch or dinner and I would always recommend it!

Blah. Nice Atmosphere and good vibe but nothing memorable about the food. Expensive for the quality and portion size. The cheese plate had regular almonds rather than the listed marcona almonds. Sounds minor, but it is metaphor for the quality of the menu and execution. There are better places to spend $200 for 2 people.

LOVE the food! This is actually my favorite place to eat now so highly recommend. However, if management is reading comments, here are a few for improvement: I have found the hostesses to be a little off-putting, but the servers seem to be great. As with all the restaurants up here, it's also WAY too loud. Hard to have a good conversation.

Great atmosphere, great service and our server is awesome. The front desk is friendly even though I was 30min late. Nothing to pick on so far.

Generally always good experience however this time there was an issue with wine I ordered not coming, then was not available. They worked it out though. Service at the table was good... not great. The food was very good. There is one issue that continues to happen every time I have been to the restaurant... you bar staff is not attentive nor service minded. It ALWAYS takes forever to order a drink and even longer to get a drink. Not sure why. The bartenders seem to take an order, disappear for a while, then eventually appear with the drink. It really is the worst part of the experience.

Great birthday lunch with friends. Mushroom tortelloni with roasted vegetables was delicious and just the right portion. We received a free dessert for the birthday person - had the tiramisu - best ever! Zucca chips were a great appetizer to share with our wine. Excellent wine list for by the glass wines. Service was good.

This was my first time here and I was quite happy with the experience! Hubs and I went with another couple. We shared the Zucca chips and the White Truffle Garlic Bread for appetizers. The bread was amazing! The zucchini was good, not great. It’s cut very thin and small so a smidge greasier than I cared for. Flavorful though. For dinner hubs and I shared The Pig pizza. It was so good!! A bit spicy but fantastic! Then we shared Bombolini (Italian donuts) and had coffee. They were so yummy! Coffee was good too. Service seemed a bit slow but not complain worthy. The space is a little loud so if you are wanting to have a serious conversation I might steer clear. Highly recommend though and we will be back!

Our drinks were served promptly and our food was exactly as we ordered in (after making a few changes to our entries). The meal itself was fantastic. Can't wait to come back. Thanks!
