North is a strong choice for lunch in Leawood and I imagine it would be just as good for dinner. It occupies a prime spot in this development and is a large, airy dining room with considerable patio space as well. The food is extremely fresh and well prepared and there is a good choice on the menu. The salads... More

The food is always very fresh and very well prepared. Have eaten there a number of times and always had great food. The staff is super. Have taken others there and they have gone back again.

My husband and I eat at this restaurant frequently. The food is always consistently good. We especially like the calamari salad, the kale salad, the salmon with Israeli couscous, and the chef's board. Nice wine selection as well. Casual atmosphere and reasonable prices.

Server was very pleasant and attentive. Atmosphere is good for such a big open space, the noise level is surprisingly low. We had 2 small plates (Arecini and mussels in a wine butter broth) both delicious. Also a Margherita pizza. Must be wood fired but I'm not positive. Nice thin and slightly crispy in the middle with a nice puffed... More

Whether it's lunch or dinner, dining inside or out, North is a great place to meet friends and family. There is a great menu selection and fairly good wine selection. I love the seasonal salad with salmon although the last couple of times it's not been as good as I remember it. It's seasonal after all...

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.
