Anniversary dinner. Asked to be seated outside and it actually happened. Would have preferred to be at an exterior table vs right in the middle and having to lean in every time when wait staff or other patrons had to walk by us.

My family of 5 went to North Italia for dinner on Friday evening. Overall, an excellent, though expensive, experience.

Starters - We had the grilled artichokes and a chef's board. The artichokes were awesome. Two of us at the table are not big 'choke' lovers, yet we both enjoyed these immensely. A little salty, but given the general mildness of artichoke, it worked. The chef's board was good, but the 2-3 person estimate is on the low side. I would say 1-2 people.

Meal - I had the Rosemary chicken. It was excellent. The meat was tender and the char left some nice texture. The vegetables with it were also perfectly cooked. Others also all enjoyed their meals (spaghetti, alfredo) all were alsy very happy with their food.

Conclusion - The price with tip was $150. That was for 5 people (2 starters, 3 adult mains, 2 kids mains, 1 cocktail and 4 non-alcoholic drinks). I imagine a table of adults ordering drinks, starters, mains, and desserts could be well over $50 a person. It was a excellent meal, worth the visit, not sure I would make it a regular thing at those prices.

Made a reservation and We were seated quickly. Our waiter was really great, attentive, available, friendly, got everything right. Food was very good. We had the mussels, calamari, bolognese, chicken parm, squid ink pasta...all very good. My mom had a salad, it was medium, not great. Did not have dessert. I had an old fashioned, it was delicious. This would have been an amazing dinner but for the overwhelming noise. This is NOT A PLACE TO GO TO TALK - not romantic, not conversational, very, very loud. It was too bad because we are visiting from Indianapolis, my parent live here and suggested the place but we could not even hear each other talk. There was a large table all the way on the other side of the restaurant with one woman in particular who cackled so loudly the whole time we were there that many folks in the place were annoyed. Even absent that annoyance, it was very, very loud. Really kills the urge to go back, even though the food and service were great. If you want to go out with friends and just make noise, it is great. If you want to have a nice dinner with conversation, do not go here. I would get my food to go.

We don't live in Austin, but this restaurant has become a requirement during each trip. I once ate there 3 times in 2 days - there is so much variety on the menu! They are pet friendly, so we take our dog and sit outside. It is one of the few restaurants we have found that have booths on the patio. The food is always consistently amazing and there are lots of options for my vegetarian spouse.

My daughter and I went to North to have a late lunch on Easter Sunday. The patio was a perfect place to eat outdoors as it is covered overhead and surrounded by plants. It was a delightful setting as the weather was perfect. The hostess recommended a wonderful drink made with Proseco and Aperol and it was delicious and refreshing. We had salads and shared a mushroom pizza, the pizza is one of the very best in the city and the restaurant does not skimp on the ingredients. Our waitress was extremely cordial and helpful both in terms of menu recommendations and the excellent service she provided.

It's been awhile since I've been to North. Brunch was very good. Despite it being Easter, they were not swamped and the service was spot on. Had 3 teenagers with us and they all said they would come back.

North is usually on of our favorite places to go but our food this time was only mediocre.

My husband and I both ordered a pizza. When placing our order we both asked that our pizza be cooked well-done. It came back cooked as usual- not at all crispy. We sent it back asking for it to be cooked well-done. When it came back it was cler that they hadn't at all cooked it longer.

So we didn't get our food cooked the way we like it but they unnecessarily made us wait for our food to give the appearance that it was being cooked longer. Newsflash North- your customers aren't stupid. By the time we got our soggy pizza back we needed to box it up because our business meeting was over.

This experience just told us they care more about how quickly they can get food out than pleasing their customer. To us that's just a lazy chef.

We enjoyed a delicious, leisurely lunch at North last Sunday. Our server was the right combination of helpful and unobtrusive, which enabled us to enjoy each other's company and kept the meal moving. While the bruschetta could have used a touch more truffle oil, it was still decadent. Our salads were fresh and crisp, with an interesting combination of textures and flavors. The pasta though. You can't go wrong with their pastas.

Starting with the cold entree served to us and the delay that endured, things went downhill. We were told the manager was going to stop by our table but never did. Our sever was missing in action for the second half of our meal, which meant from the time we finished our dinner until we were able to pay our check was 30 minutes and the restaurant had emptied out during that time. After dessert menus took 10 minutes to appear we said "no thanks."
