We went on a Sunday, when they have all day happy hour. This means you can order off a specific menu of half price apps, and the house wine is cheaper as well. We ordered the chefs board, zucco chips and grilled artichoke. The chefs board is a variety of small tastes; olives, cheese, toast and spreads, and the zucco... More

My wife and adult daughter dined here and had a great time. He food was delicious and the atmosphere was fun, albeit a bit loud. Many Italian restaurants can be a bit stuffy and this is definitely not. Having tried all of the better Italian restaurants in Tucson, we believe that this is the best. Prices are reasonable, portions large... More

We had a dinner at North. We had had many good past experiences with food. This time unfortunately the grilled artichokes came out overdone. We mentioned it to the wait person and moments later the manager was there. He wanted to make sure everything was made good. No charge for the offending item. He explained why the artichokes were difficult... More

We stopped here and had wonderful food. The menu has fresh pastas, pizza and scattered other dishes. Even the cocktails were made with fresh fruit and spices. I had a pasta dish that was wonderful.

Love, love, love North. We return again and again. The food is amazing, the drinks are wonderful, and the atmosphere is a favorite. The Sangria is our favorite drink, and the chocolate tart at dessert is a wonderful treat. We look forward to returning next time.

We had a party of 6 with a reservation. We were seated right away and our waitress was quick to the table to offer water and take drink orders. She was on top of things all night. The food was excellent across the table! Then we ordered dessert. The restaurant was packed by this point and about 10 mins after... More

We have eaten at North many times and it has NEVER let us down--even when they are super busy, which happens often during the high season. The food selection focuses on simple northern Italian and is good. The drinks menu, particularly Italian wine, is large. The service is amazing given how busy they can be. One almost never feels let... More

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.
