Always get an amazing meal at North. Had to wait around thirty minutes to be seated with our reservation (quite a few large groups - seemed like company holiday parties), but the staff went above and beyond to make up for it and we really appreciated it! It was a great birthday dinner for my best friend - would definitely recommend the hazelnut torta.

We enjoy meals at North on a regular basis. The occasion was my wife's birthday and I made a reservation using the Open Table app. We wanted an indoor table but had to settle for an outdoor table unless we waited for 45 minutes beyond the time of our reservation. This has happened to us before. If you want to sit inside, MAKE IT CLEAR ON YOUR RESERVATION!

Food was not as good as I remembered. My pizza dripped grease on me. My business associate did not eat hardly any of her hamburger. I don't think she liked it. The service was great and the patio was very comfortable. I'll try a different entree next time.

Waiter was forgetful about most everything, coming back and asking several times the same thing. Again. He also forgot about a side dish till the end. I have always had to great service here but this was quite poor to say the least. He was courteous and polite but completely forgetful about most everything

The wine selection was fantastic but somewhat pricey, The calamari was a little too salty for my liking

However everything was excellent mussels, bread, pizza, pasta with meat sauce, salmon, white bean ragu, and even dessert

We had a great time. I was especially please with the attentiveness of the management including the senior general manager visiting our table and offering his contact information in case we were ever in and area with one of their sister stores and he would assist in securing reservations for us. Food is always of the highest quality and this time was no exception. We shared a seasonal vegetable salad and then had entree's of Rosemary Chicken which was very moist and juicy, and Red Wine Glazed Short Ribs. At the end of the meal the manager offered to pick up our desert so the torte finished of the evening. It was all fantastic.

They have some items on the menu that are really good: the zucchini chips and the prosciutto pizza. The rest is just good lunch food. No culinary delights, in my opinion. I made the reservation for a Saturday night. Big mistake: extremely loud and hard to have a conversation. We were nine on a rectangular table, so very hard to have conversations. I would go back, but just for lunch, or brunch and no greater group than 4 People.

We ate on the patio, and our enjoyment of our friends' company and the excellent food was marred by the constant, unrelenting howling of the large Beagle belonging to our near table neighbors. The 2 young women were oblivious and/or unconcerned with their dog's behavior, despite meaningful looks their way by multiple table occupants.

Wow-knockout restaurant--Weve tried them all-maybe not all --However as frequenly as we eat out trying new venues we always come back to the best--the one restaurant that consistently excites and satisfy's our needs. Waitstaff is warm and friendly and engaging. Spectacular salads incredible pizzas and a great wine list.
Reservations are a must! We arrived in time for our 7:15 reservation--and the wait was an hour and a half. We've been eating at North Italia since the first week it opened and the restaurant has consistently pleased & thrilled us.
I am uncertain what the total Number of restaurants are in the Domain here in Austin! But I can assure you you won't go wrong but obtaining a reservation at North Italia.
