Saturday evening we met friends at North Italia. It was our first time dining there. The zucchini chips and calamari were delicious appetizers. Three of us had pasta dishes all of which were great, the fourth had a salad which was good as well. Ali was our main waitress. She could not have been more friendly in fact all the... More

We travelled to Phoenix from Boston recently and after 4 nights of mediocre dinners, we decided to consult TripAdvisor for a recommendation. Wished we had done it sooner! We hit the jackpot when we arrived at North Italia/Arcadia. We arrived without a reservation even though there was an option to book online. We were greeted by a lovely staff that... More

Finding good authentic Italian can be a challenge. Look no further this amazing restaurant makes their pasta from scratch and the noodles are all great. As for their Bolognese, it's the real deal no short cuts here. They also have a great happy hour from 3:00 to 6:00 well worth the stop. You will not be disappointed!

Enjoyed an excellent dinner at North Italia. Loved the room, open kitchen, atmosphere and the service was great. Really nice pizzas, the chicken pasta and short rib pasta were both delicious.

North Italia was worth the drive from Mesa especially the bruschetta and the pizza called the pig was the bomb. Chicago didn't even know the bartender was my classmate from high school 35 years ago! Great food great drinks great ambience a must-visit!

My husband, sister and I went there for lunch. We had an excellent lunch. While I was walking in they were making homemade tortellini. I ordered it for lunch and it was delicious with butternut squash, mushroom and a brown butter sage sauce. My husband had the house made Bolognese sauce and my sister had another fabulous pasta dish.

It's painful to write this review because we are HUGE believers in Fox Restaurants but this was absolutely a terrible experience at our favorite place, especially to celebrate a birthday. We arrived at 5:30 (early dinner with kids) with several tables open, we were seated quickly and greeted quickly but then it went down hill. We ordered drinks which took... More

I hate leaving bad reviews for restaurants that I have only visited on eve but this place was terrible. ANd I LOVE fox restaurants. This was just not up to their standards. We ended up going on New Years Day and that was probably our biggest problem because it seems the waitress was hung over from the previous night. Our... More

Complimentary valet, open and airy, kitchen in open sight, modern yet unpretentious. Quality ingredients, we enjoyed a sophisticated funghi pizza and Nonna (grandma) casserole for lunch. Highly recommended. Reasonably priced.

At North Arcadia, Italian countryside has merged with the Phoenix Arcadia district to create a space that is refined and rustic.The modern Italian farmhouse architecture gives the first hint of regional farm-to-table food and a welcoming vibe inside. House-made pasta, rustic antipasti and pizzas are created from scratch in the bustling exhibition kitchen. Enjoy signature cocktails at the indoor-outdoor bar, lunch and dinner on the patio or in the dining room... or even brunch on lazy weekends. All at North Arcadia.
