A word from NoRTH - Austin
North is offering a prix fixe menu and accepting reservations this Valentines Day! Please visit our website to view the menu and contact the restaurant directly to save your seat. We hope you will join us! Thanks, North
We’ve turned a modern lens on traditional Italian cooking. North Italia is our love letter to Italy—a place that’ll make you feel like you’ve stepped off a charming side street to discover a culinary gem. After a decade in business, we’ve learned a thing or two and we’re approaching perfection in the art of handmade pasta and pizza. Every day, we start from scratch to create dishes like Strozzapreti with Bloomsdale spinach or supple ribbons of tagliatelle for our Bolognese. Our pizza is a revelation: an airy, barely chewy center embraced by a perfectly crisp crust. With the spirit of the Italian taverna, North is the place to talk shop over a cocktail or swap gossip sharing delectable chef creations. Every neighborhood would be lucky to have a place like North.

Diner Reviews
  • "North is normally one of my favorite places to eat. Not this visit :( Food was not fantastic as I am used to & our server was terrible! He had a bad attitude from the second he walked up to the table & he made the entire meal a bit difficult. So sad, because dining here usually makes us very happy & relaxed."

  • "We loved everything we ordered. I took photos and posted them on Instagram- and they got raving comments from foodies around the world. This is a valuable opportunity- do not miss it!"

  • "Food was really good! Service was good. Treated my daughter's 18th birthday like she was a princess. The chef's board (vegetarian) appetizer was really really, really good. All in all a wonderful birthday for all involved!"

  • "I usually have nothing but a good experience re: the food at North. This last time, however, it wasn't good. We never received our bread from the waiter and he rarely checked in with us throughout the meal. I always get their pasta Bolognese and my boyfriend gets the spaghetti marinara with meatballs. Both of our dishes were severely overcooked and mushy, which is very outside of the ordinary per our past experiences at North. I'm hoping it was a one time deal!"

  • "Our group of 9 had a wonderful experience. We checked in at exactly 6:30pm, which was the time of our reservation, and we were seated promptly. The service was excellent. And most importantly, the food was delicious. It was a completely satisfying experience. I recommend this restaurant without reservation. Thumbs up !!"

  • "Took my wife for her birthday. She really enjoyed it with a good wine and beer selection. The food was really well prepared and the fresh pasta is killer."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Even though the entire place was full of customers, our food was prepared extremely well and on time. There was no waiting between courses and we were not rushed either. We had the mussels appetizers and the scallops entree, which was very well cooked and presented and not over cooked and I am very strict about over cooking seafood. I hate overbooked seafood, I will send it back if the seafood is tough and tasteless and does not melt in your mouth. It was a very nice evening of dining. Try it you will love 'North'."

  • "Excellent waiter Jason....like new couches that divide the inside room from the outside!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Knowledgeable and expedient staff. Our server was on point with his wine suggestion. Everything was prepared perfectly. The mussels were a perfect starter and the braised short ribs melted in your mouth. My wife raved about the scallops. Can't wait to get back."

  • "We were out on the patio that has clear tented sides. The table chairs are a bit uncomfortable if you are sitting for awhile and enjoying your company, but they have some tables out on the patio that have couches and these are what you want -- very comfortable for drinking a bottle of wine with friends. Also the patio has hanging heat lamps and you don't want to be under one. While its nice for the warmth after a while you been to feel like a pizza under a heat lamp. I like the heat lamps that are stands instead of these that hang over your table. Jason was our server and he was fabulous! Helped some of new to North people settle and in and explained how certain items were prepared as well as helping one of vegetarians choose a meal."

  • "What's not to like: Great food, great service, fun views of people walking around depending on where you sit. Great all around! Plus a special thanks to Carey our waitress for excellent service!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "We loved the small plates - zucca chips, meatballs, mussels and arancini. House-baked bread w/ sundried tomato butter was yummy and hard to resist. Margarita pizza very good, could have used more cheese. Caprese and Meatball sandwiches divine, as were the crispy "smashed new potatoes" that accompanied them. Our group loved the tomato "Soup of the Day". Caesar salad a disappointment - the dressing was tasty and balanced but the romaine was chopped into tiny pieces making it hard to eat, and the croutons were tasteless - also the portion was tiny. Waiter was great. Food was a bit slow coming out of the kitchen, but ambience was nice so we didn't mind."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I've been at North more than 5Xs celebrating anniversaries, birthday, ect.. I would recommend that the Host ask if a special occasion and (even if you get billed ) but brings out a dessert noting your celebration. example: Anniversary wording on your dessert...? quick tip. maybe a dump one.. but.. that is something I like personally."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We ordered four bologneses and all were absolutely amazing. This was my girlfriend and I's third time to NoRTH and we will definitely be back as regulars. The service has always been on point and it is a great location."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We took my mom here for her birthday dinner. We had reservations at 6pm and were seated early at 5:45. We ordered calamari and were not really impressed:(. We also ordered the bruschetta and it was delicious! We also have chicken pesto, spicy shrimp and tortollini. The spicy shrimp was good except the shrimp were obviously frozen and they were extremely Small but the sauce was good."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Although NoRTH is in with all the other mediocre restaurants in The Domain it stands out as a great place to eat. The food is carefully prepared and full of flavor. The salads are good, the pasta is great and the pizzas just like I like it. Desert was very distinctive and full of flavor. The service for our group of 5 was just right. Always making sure we had what we needed but not to pushy. The Al Fresco ambiance is comfortable and enjoyable. Best of all the prices were very reasonable for the quality of food served."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "I've been to this restaurant many times -- Never been disappointed with the food quality. Dishes are better than average for Austin area. The salmon dish is my favorite."

  • "Pasta was very fresh - wine selection was extensive and the service was great."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Fixed menu for Valentines Day was very good - nice change from their normal offerings - a bit high in the ticket price but I'd go again so not too bad. Would love to see them be more clear about gluten free options."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I have heard so many positive things. My Wife and I need to try the regular menu instead of the Valentine's Day Menu."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I can't stop ordering the scallops! so good everything on the menu is great and the service is always spot on."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "My husband and I have been going to North since they opened several years ago. This time, we took some out-of-towners to dinner who had never been to North. We had the roasted chicken, branzino, calamari, artichoke, and salads. We all enjoyed our meals. The server we had was excellent - very knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt. The only negative was that the atmosphere was a bit loud for us to have a conversation without raising our voices, as the restaurant was very crowded on a Wednesday night."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "Inside was noisy; we ate on the heated patio where it was quiet. The service was excellent, the salad was very interesting and tasty. The pasta and the fried zucchini chips were over-salted. Very attractive interior. The table we chose outside was against a window to the kitchen, so we watched a man just on the other side make spinach tortellini all through our meal!"
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "Everything about North is extraordinary. I've been a few times and each time the food and staff far exceed my expectations. There's not a better restaurant in Austin that consistently offers this kind of value in every aspect of the dining experience."

  • "Great response from staff for a special occasion. Free dessert given. Zucc chips and Salmon were the best!"
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "Don't miss the appetizers, particularly the fried risotto mushroom one, chicken parmigiana was really good. Pizzas are excellent. Cocktails are great too."

  • "Good pizza and salads. Fun place with a great outdoor patio."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "We have been twice, once for lunch and once for dinner, both were very good. We live in Tulsa and we visit our son in Austin. What I did like was being able to make reservations on my computer several days before we were to be in Austin for his birthday."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The food was absolutely amazing!!! I ordered the calamari and scallops, both wonderful! However, our table was so close to the people next to us, we knew everything about them by the end of the evening. Big negative."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We had a reservation for 7pm but arrived 10 minutes early. There was no problem we were seated right away on the enclosed patio where the noise level was slightly lower. The service was prompt. The menu contained some inventive items. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "My wife got the scallops and it was truly fabulous. The appetizers were wonderful, and the wine was a great pairing. However my pasta was overdressed and not what I expected. The rest of the experience, including dessert and drinks afterward was noteworthy. So I'm chalking it up to a fluke, non-stellar dish."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Really enjoyed my experience. The first time I visited North was with a large group and recently just with two people--both times were great! Great wait experience and timely service."

  • "Highlights were the zucca chips and the farm salad. Scallops and bolognese also excellent. We will be back."

  • "Wonderful service, wonderful atmosphere, wonderful food"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "If you want a completely bland Italian experience, that feels like you are in a night club, then by all means go here. Mediocre food, lousy ambiance, and fair service pervade. You would be far better served going to Magianos at the other end of the domain."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Not a bad spot. ended up with a table outside which was fortunate as it would have been pretty hard to hold a conversation over the noise level inside. Overall not a bad place grab a bite, average Italian cuisine."
