North Italia, a modern Italian, neighborhood restaurant from restaurateur, Sam Fox, has opened its first Florida location this Winter, bringing made-from-scratch Italian favorites to Miami’s bustling Mary Brickell Village, serving lunch and dinner seven days a week.


Inspired by the fresh cuisine and relaxed atmosphere of coastal Italian eateries, North Italia looks forward to serving as Miami’s go-to destination for flavorful dishes, pizzas and pasta inspired by farm, land and sea.

North Italia’s Brickell location marks the return of Fox Restaurant Concepts to the state of Florida. Sam Fox, the creative visionary behind Fox Restaurant Concepts and a 10-time James Beard Award semifinalist for Restaurateur of the Year, says, “When we opened True Food Kitchen in Boca Raton, we really felt like we were a part of the neighborhood and appreciated the warm welcome of the local community. We’re looking forward to enjoying the same close relationship between our neighbors in Brickell with North Italia.”


Reflecting North Italia’s commitment to handmade, seasonal cuisine, signature items will include the house specialty Bolognese, made with traditional meat sauce, handmade tagliatelle noodles and Grana Padano cheese, and fresh-from-the-oven pizzas in traditional varieties like Margherita, as well as the indulgent Bacon & Egg, topped with grilled asparagus, roasted potato, garlic confit and rosemary. Handmade pizzas and pastas will also be balanced by an array of lighter starters and hearty meat and seafood mains.


Perfect for an after work happy hour or a weekend afternoon pick-me-up, North Italia’s fresh menu of Italian staples will be complemented by handcrafted cocktails such as The I.G.T. (Dimmi Liquore di Milano, lemon zest, fresh basil, Mediterranean tonic), Rosemary & Lime (Ketel One Vodka, Amaro Nonino, rosemary, angostura, smashed lime) and Red Sangria (brandy, blood orange, red wine, strawberry, lime). The Miami restaurant will also feature a selection of local beers and a robust list of red, white and sparkling wines from Italy and other top wine producing regions.
