North Italia Restaurant Review

: Restaurateur Sam Fox has built himself an empire of popular Arizona restaurants, and North Italia is a prime example of why he's a success. With a seamless combination of a sophisticated yet relaxed ambience, upscale recipes yet unpretentious presentation, and comfort food mixed with periodically electric surprises, this is a place to visit again and again. The fare has been notable since day one (clever, irresistible zucchini chips served free at the bar, and an old-world pasta bolognese that will remind even the most bored diner why simple Italian food is arresting). The place also pays equal respect to wine and cocktails, showcasing digestifs like limoncello liqueur and dozens of notable boutique wines by the glass. Also located at 4925 N. 40th St., Phoenix, 602-324-5600.
