The food here is fresh, tasty and always delivered to a very good standard. The restaurant is modern and busy with a great atmosphere. The service is friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend.

We live near by and we frequently eat at this establishment . Reservations are necessary on the weekends. During the summer months the patio is a great outdoor space to dine in! They have great happy hour selections but get your order in before 6:00 for the happy hour pricing. They have a wonderful wine selection and the best sangria!!... More

My wife and i have been to North Italia many times. We love the Chef Board, the choice of wines by the glass, the good service and our favorite...the short rib. I think it is the best in Kansas City. I judge businesses more harshly not when they get it wrong....but by how the react when they get it wrong.... More

Great vibe - terrific food - superb staff. Wine menu was spot on. Had a great Pinot with tortellini butternut squash. Dessert was ok - olive oil cake was really a nice twist on strawberry shortcake.

Food is delicious, fresh, and tastes incredible. I also loved the portions - I left satisfied, but not stuffed. Wine choice with pasta was superb. Somewhat noisy for conversation, but evening was great

Oh well... being from NYC area and Italian I am used to disappointment, but coupled with the slow service and cafeteria atmosphere and high prices you wouldn't be sad skipping this claimed Italian restaurant. Sugar in the sauce is the norm for a lot of restaurants pretending to be Italian in the KC region and I hate it, but if... More

I only tried pizza and it was very very good!!! The atmosphere is excellent either outside or inside. Service was good too! I would not recommend it with kids for dinner, but may be its just me, I didn't picture myself going there with my kids.

This is a family favorite. Perfect to take my wife out for her birthday, but perfect for Sunday Lunch on the patio. The food is incredible. I have never had a bad meal. The homemade pasta is light and airy and is delicately laden with the perfect flavor of pesto or marinara. The kids meals are gourmet and friendly to... More
