North Italia Restaurant Review: North remains a favorite go-to restaurant and with good reason: the Italian food is tasty; service is knowledgeable and friendly; and the vibe --- even though some say it’s noisy --- is hip without being painfully so. We usually start with the arancini, little risotto balls in a light red sauce. Calamari presents a balance of flavors from arugula and lemon vinaigrette; zucca chips arrive hot out of the fryer. Several thin-crust pizzas grace the menu and are big enough to share, though you may not want to. Pastas range from simple spaghetti and meatballs to the more interesting ricotta gnocchi with a rich short rib sauce and a hint of horseradish. But we wouldn’t push away the tagliatelle in a savory Bolognese sauce. For the lighter appetite several salads and sandwiches are available as well as the chef’s boards for sharing (we recommend the combo because it makes decisions simple). Try the budino for dessert. Of course, being part of the Fox Restaurant Concepts family means there’s a nice wine list with price points to fit any budget.
