A brand new restaurant just opened in Fashion Valley called North Italia. I came to try it out for myself. This place has all homemade and made at the moment food. The menu of course is Italian food. Each table has these little fresh flowers and a candle burning to add a slight romantic feel.
The first thing I ordered was a chef’s board as an appetizer. The perfect starter for anyone with the variety of choices it has including cheese, olives, marcona almond and more. The jam or preserve that came with the board was intriguing savory and sweet. To accompany the chef’s board, I ordered a Julietta cocktail. This cocktail tasted like a ginger lemonade with a twist. It also came with a real flower garnish.
As for the main entree, there was a lot of yummy sounding choices. The pizza and pasta are homemade and fresh. I had the chicken pesto and it came with gigli pasta. This pasta was delicious and soft and fresh. You can definitely taste between the dried pasta you buy in the store and fresh made. It was beautifully adorned with pine nuts and toasted capers.
Overall I loved the experience and can not wait to go back and try some of their other menu items.
