This trendy eatery in upscale La Encantada Shopping Center melds an urban-loft look with rustic Italian touches, including bright red chairs and metal tables. North draws crowds who come for the excellent thin-crust pizzas, pasta, fish, and steak, all prepared in the open kitchen. Alfresco dining on the wraparound patio affords views of the city and quieter conversation; on most evenings the expansive bar area inside buzzes with Tucson's young professionals.

This restaurant is equal to or better than any San Francisco Restaurant as of this writing. Service and staff above average. Food preperation and menu perfect. Wine list short nothing over $65.00 good. Deserts great. Osso Bucco with creamy white polenta-almost as good as moms. View during a lightning storm perfect. Very close call between this and Vivace in Tuscon. Will return ............

The food was fine, but not memorable. The atmosphere is fun and upscale, but very noisy inside. We opted for a patio table, and actually had to search for a chair that wasn't damaged. The restrooms were a mess and when I called this to the attention of the service staff they seemed put out that I would even think of complaining about such a trivial thing. I don't plan to return, but hope they've improved as the location is unbeatble.
