Excellent and intimate! Our waiter was fantastic. All of their red wine is great, and I'd recommend ordering one of their specialty cocktails too! We got the bread and olive oil as an app, perfect. I had the chicken pesto and it was superb. The tiramisu had to be my favorite part though; it was even better than some I've had in Italy!!!

Loved sitting by the floor to ceiling screen, being inside with the feeling of outside, but when I mentioned to our waitress that I was extremely cold, as-well-as others at the table, there was nothing the wait staff could do. We ate dinner being uncomfortable and cold, accept my friend who kept his winter coat on the entire dinner. Service of water, service of drinks and service of food was extremely extremely slow. Which then leads to “well was the food really that great.....”? Food and drinks are always good at North Italia, I’ve been often, and have always overlooked some faux pas with service, but good enough to risk being uncomfortable, no not another time

LOVE North Italia! The food is divine and the service is even better! But both locations are noisy, so if you want to have a quiet, intimate dinner, this might not be the place for you.

We arrived a little earlier than the time of our reservation, but we were sat right away. Our waiter was kind and energetic--he made us feel welcome ad warm. We had the truffle bread as an appetizer--it was absolutely delicious. One thing my wife and I were so surprised about was the timing all of our food came out in. It came out so fast and yet the quality of the food was amazing. We were so impressed. It was an overall great experience, we will definitely come back again.

We waited for a table, despite our reservation. Eventually we were seated outside. It was cold and noisy.

Great food and wonderful restaurant. They had us seated right away. I highly recommend the garlic truffle bread. Only downside is that the restaurant is loud and pretty packed. It made it slightly distracting for our date but made for great people watching.

Likes: Cheese board was really good, great bread. Nice wines. Service was attentive.

Dislikes: The tables are so close together you are literally at the same table. Not a place for personal conversation. I was with a friend, but definitely not a date place.

Fantastic food and service, best calamari in Austin! The only thing that keeps it from being perfect is that it’s pretty loud and sometimes hard to talk!

Best dinner and services I've had in a while. When our dinner took a little longer than it should have (we were having good conversation so we didn't even really notice), they made sure to come out to our table, and let us know ahead of time. The food was amazing and very reasonably priced. We were here for my mom's birthday, and they made it very special and let us sing to her, etc. Would definitely recommend North!

Love North, it is always a great choice...BUT, they need to bring back their tomato butter. It is ridiculous to remove a favorite. Bring it back and charge for it, people would pay.

Artichoke Appetizer is always excellent. Wine selection is good as is the entire menu. This is a frequent dining spot for business and dates.

Do not go to North Italia if you don't like noisy restaurants. Incredibly busy at 8pm on a thursday night. Food and service were ok. So noisy! Probably won't be back.

2/3 entrees came out wrong. Waited 20+ mins for new entrees while my food got cold waiting to eat. Finally ate at my table mates insisting that I eat. I was completely done before they received entrees. Used to love North.

Great food and service. A little noisy, but it was Avery busy night in a smaller dining area so that’s to be expected.
