After returning from Italy, my wife became obsessed with finding Italian food as good in Tucson. Not possible of course. But North italia came closer than any other place we've been in Tucson. Expensive, but within reason. Atmosphere is lively but noisy. Great pasta dishes.

North has terrific food - love the fig pizza, and salads are wonderful. It's a bit loud which can make conversation more difficult, but the meals are always great.

Eating here is like eating in a gymnasium filled with fans. It is so loud you cannot carry on a conversation. Tables are so close, servers have to turn sideways to get between them. Food is mediocre at best. The pasta is overcooked and salad...More

Ann and I went for dinner about 7 pm on 7/4. No reservations and knowingly a crowded night out, but so should the restaurant have known. First, the hostess lost or didn't record Ann's cell number, so after waiting 20 minutes being told 10, I...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.
