Breakfast Carbonara Pasta*
poached egg, crispy pancetta, english pea, cavatelli, herb breadcrumb, pecorino stagionato
traditional meat sauce, tagliatelle noodle, grana padano, truffle ricotta
ONLY complaint... we were placed next to patio door that was left open. So every time someone walked by, there was a cool wind that blew on us. And it is February so it is already cold. No need for additional cooling.
My husband and I came here on Valentines and will definitely be back in the future. We waited for a special occasion since it's kind of pricey here, but it's well worth it. Everything was perfectly delicious, everyone who worked there was friendly and knowledgeable, and the prices were reasonable for an upscale Italian place. And we left stuffed, and had leftovers! You won't be disappointed here.
BRAISED SHORT RIB CAVATELLI ALL DAY
it was a cold day outside but the inside was way too cold
had to wear coats to eat
came in from Ohio looking for a good Italian restaurant. Found a gem. would definitely stop here again.
The service and food was amazing!!
As always, the food and drinks were absolutely delicious. The only reason I've given a 4 star rating is because they had run out of propane and couldn't provide warmth to customers dining outside. It was a frigid afternoon in the shade. All of the umbrellas were up and the heaters were off. We asked if the on of the umbrellas over us could come down so we could enjoy the warmth from the sun. The server said yes as soon as it became possible. It didn't come down even when it could. Other than that, it was a great. Just think it's important to be aware of the weather when you are supposed to be providing a heated patio during Covid-19 when so many people are choosing to dine only outside. A manager can be sent many places to buy some propane.
Great service and yummy food!
We were quite cold outside, but you were able to get the heater going for us, which helped. Food was delicious, as always!
We go often and enjoy the restaurant frequently, always been a great place to take family.
Delicious food with excellent service. All of our selections were served perfectly cooked and piping hot.
Highly recommend the skirt steak dish. Very flavorful.
Always a great place to relax and feel safe. The service was fast and the food and drinks where amazing!!
I just love this place! I would recommend to everyone.
Everything was great.
Fabulous service, amazing food and wine! We’re never disappointed by North.
Truly authentic noodles and excellent meatballs. Fresh homemade sauce with tons of flavor. We will be back... often...
Family brunch with three generations. Good time. Something for everyone.
Awesome! We Really enjoyed the experience for my two girlfriends birthdays. Food was amazing!
Our server Emerson was amazing!! Great service and a positive attitude, he made some great suggestions! Food was awesome and the white truffle cheese bread is a must try!! Love North!
Our waiter took superb care of our group. The food was amazing and the patio was just what we needed. Made for a great celebration for my team!
It is always good!!!
great service - asked them to open the outdoor area and they did. got free dessert for birthday and a candle.
Food amazing as always, our waitress was very friendly and attentive. The only disappointment were the hostesses/greeters, they were abrupt, demeaning, irritated and dismissive, unfortunately not the first time.
Great food and service. Felt safe even indoors
This place never disappoints. The food is delicious, service is great. Even during covid, they are managing to deliver great food experience.
Incredible food and incredible service! The white truffle garlic bread is a must have. 11/10 would recommend.
We always have a good time at the North Italia never disappointed.
Had a wonderful New Years Eve at North. Had been a while since we had been there but will go back again soon. They had a 3 course menu for $55 each which was a bargain - I had shrimp scampi appetizer, filet mignon cooked MR and a very nice dessert. My husband had the short ribs ragu for appetizer and spagetti bolganese for main and a nice dessert too. Waitress was attentive and helpful. Had a nice bottle of red wine with dinner that was yummy and was only $40.
We really enjoyed our night out. They were careful with the covid regulations!
We love this place the food is always amazing. Only complaint was the kitchen was a little slow, but it was also new years Eve. So, a little forgiveness and grace is allowed, but every thing we have ever had to eat or drink here is always delicious and fresh. We also had a great server, the service and attention was perfect
We arrived on time and was brought to a lovely table
We were the first couple to arrive and we explained to the server that we wanted separate checks - as we we ordered 2 expensive bottles of wine and did not want our wine to be imposed upon our guests - although we were all sharing !
There was a pre fix menu .
We loved the choices .
We ordered and then the seafood choice app crab risotto and the crab was cold like refrigerator cold !
The server quickly replaced the app with the short rib all was recovered nicely- my BF hates to return food but we encourages because we all rated the temp very cold
So our mains arrived looking because but the lobster was cold the scallops main course was also at a temp freezing
As well out guests all sent their mains back because theirs were cold .
Our bill was 450$ for wine and 4 appetizers-
When we were leaving the bartender was heckling us ! Put on your mask ! We had them on - The string on my BF mask was broken .
London the bartender acts like a policeman - he ignores guests unless he feel he should serve us - we avoid going to the bar if he’s working. Covid no Covid we are the patrons and do not deserve to be treated like children-
And the server put all on one bill so we didn’t leave a tip Our guest had her adjust the bill to pay for one bottle of wine and left the tip for the table- perhaps the bartender felt like we didn’t tip and was harassing us - but we do tip and always do - I am a former restaurant owner .
We asked for separate bills - again not listening to guests .
Everything was good EXCEPT that the so called “outdoor” seating was crowded with people who some of them were talking and laughing loud. This defeated our precautions for wanting to sit “outdoor” because those loud people would easily transmit COVID-19 to others by talking and laughing loud. We did not feel comfortable at all because of the increased risk for COVID-19. We had to rush eating our dinner and we did not enjoy it at all new year’s eve! Restaurant management should have been proactive about stopping such a risky behavior from customers but it did not. I would never go back!
They did not have their happy hour because it was New Year’s Eve, they were not having a full menu after 3 o’clock and nobody told me before I got there. Only meals available after three till five was pizza. Our wonderful waitress was able to get orders in before three so we could have something besides pizza. I thank her for being flexible. I eat there a lot and I love their food but I like to be advised in advance of any changes prior to arrival. All worked out well and we had a splendid time!
Excellent service by B Aystlan 12/29/2020 table 83 16:14. Give that woman praise and a raise! The salmon on Kale is delicious as well as the Burrata salad fab! One of our favorite places in Austin.
We appreciated the outdoor seating, but the tables were too close together for comfort. We left as soon as it started getting crowded.
Food is always amazing and the service was outstanding!!!!! Highly recommended!!!
We felt very comfortable and safe inside. Friendly staff. Great food!
