North Italia, Sam Fox’s wildly popular Italian restaurant, is set to open its first location in Nevada on Wednesday, Dec. 13 in Las Vegas. Located at Rampart Commons, adjacent to the community of Summerlin, the modern Italian restaurant will offer dishes handmade from scratch daily, including pizza and pasta made with seasonal and fresh ingredients from the garden, farm and sea.


“We’re proud to open our very first North Italia location in Nevada,” said Sam Fox, founder of Fox Restaurant Concepts. “The Summerlin community in Las Vegas has become a thriving destination to dine, shop, live and work, and is the perfect area for our new restaurant. We look forward to becoming a part of the neighborhood and offering great food, excellent service and an unforgettable experience.”


Using only the best ingredients, the family-friendly eatery will offer a robust menu including antipasti (daily soup, charcuterie and bruschetta), salads full of seasonal ingredients and a main entrée menu driven by both traditional Italian cuisine and lighter fresh fish dishes. Everything from the pasta to pizza dough is made fresh on the premise daily. North Italia will also feature toast-worthy cocktails, quality wines at approachable prices and craft beers to accompany the artisanal Italian dishes.


Led by Executive Chef Philipp Norsetter, the 6,970-square foot restaurant will offer lunch and dinner every day, weekend brunch and happy hour Sunday through Friday. The culinary gem will feature an exhibition kitchen overlooking the dining room, a full bar and seating for up to 254 guests including an expansive outdoor patio with seating for 95.


The new restaurant will be North Italia’s first location in Nevada and 12th in the U.S. with other locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Kansas and Texas. North Italia will also be Sam Fox’s second culinary concept in Las Vegas and part of Fox Restaurant Concepts’ collection of 16 restaurant brands including national brands, True Food Kitchen and Culinary Dropout. Founder Fox, known for his passion for great food, design, lifestyle and hospitality, is also a James Beard Award nominee for Restaurateur of the Year, New York Times best-selling cookbook author, recipient of the Richard Melman Innovator of the Year Award by Restaurant Hospitality magazine and has been recognized as one of the 50 most influential people in the restaurant industry by Nation’s Restaurant News.
