As usual, great dining experience. The only thing I would say negatively was that the waitress we had this time was a bit disengaged and short with our party.
noise level makes it virtually impossible for a large group to converse.
otherwise all good a a restaurant to visit.
The food is always good but sometimes they’re too slow to bring out food.
Every time I have made reservations here they have sat us at least 30 minutes after the reservation time. What is the point of making a reservation? And when I asked why another group was sat before us the reply was “they had a reservation at 7pm” well so did we. The food the last time I was there was also not as good as it has been before. For these reasons I probably will not be returning.
It was awesome as usual. Friendly service, great food, good atmosphere.
The food was great and service even better. Definitely a great place for dinner
It's the vibe and the excellent people-watching that keep me coming back. The food's always good. The service was a tad sluggish, but nothing too bothersome. It's just a cool place.
It was too loud
Service was great sauce had a burnt taste and pasta was over cooked on 2 entrees
We had a blast and the food was top notch. We loved it!
I've been to North Italia three times, and they never fail to impress! My recent visit was for dinner with my boyfriend. I reserved a table, but I had to wait due to the crowdedness of the restaurant. The staff was friendly and even offered me a glass of water while I waited. Afterward, they seated me at the first available table. When my boyfriend arrived, we received our menus and ordered pasta and some white truffle garlic bread. Let's say we didn't regret our orders; the food was fantastic! On a final note, North Italia is a place I will continue visiting whenever I have a craving for Italian cuisine.
Great food choices and taste, excellent service. Keep it up!
The hostess took my reservation was so rude, i wish I could know her name but she hung up the phone too fast and I can’t ask anything else. I made reservation by online then I received a missed call from the restaurant so I called back to make sure everything is ok. However, when I called and explained to her, she just responded “last name?”, i was like “what?! That’s it?!”, i still said calmly and patiently “....”, and she said “oh we just want to confirm the reservation”, I said “oh okay”, then she hung up immediately, no thank you, no goodbye, nothing-at-all! That’s not the right way to talk to the customers on the phone. You obviously can tell she is not happy, not welcoming, not positive, and not energetic and especially showing how rude she is!
The noise level is very loud, but the food is so good, you won't wanna spend your time talking anyways
The Branzino was to die for! Never miss this restaurant when in Houston.
Always a good place for business lunch. Service is good and quick, and the food is consistently delicious.
Food took an hour and was mediocre quality at best. The Market up value on a salad is ridiculous.
Service was soooooo slow!! Lack of staff organization
Great food, great service, hate the seating arrangement for 2 tops, but it’s worth it for casual dates
After 15 min of sitting at our table we didn’t have one waiter introduce there selves to us. We love the food here but the service really needs help, may need to source back to management. Has potential to be great!
Over the past 6 to 12 months when I go to get the seasonal salad with salmon the seasonal salad is over salted and Is dripping in dressing. This is unfortunate because this salad could be so awesome! You just have to remember to ask him for less salt and way less dressing.
This was my 2nd visit and again left with anticipation on a return date! A must visit kind of place.
TRY THE CALAMARI Appetizer!
The vibe and the food were both amazingly good. They have great dessert as well. The employees are very friendly.
My first time there, wife had been prior with a friend. I was pleasantly surprised with how popular it was. It felt loud inside but close conversation was easy. Great for a group as the possibility of putting small tables together is available. Valet was expensive but self parking in the garage is available. Plan to go back soon.
Great food and great service
Meal took 20-30 mins. My meal was not that great this time.
Food was wonderful and the service was excellent. Can be a little loud but the food and service make up for it.
I love and live for Italian food and I thought our entire experience was great- everything including the service, the wait time, and most importantly, the food! I think my husband and I found a new, go-to Italian restaurant!
It was nice but noisy like always
Food and service were excellent. Short Rib Radiatori was to die for.
Amazing service and food! The restaurant is busy and crowded though, not a place to relax exactly. Juanito was our waiter and he was excellent, best service I have ever received.
Celebratory lunch for the last day of school with our kids. Food was amazing, but for the fact that there was PLASTIC in one of the dishes. Ruined the entire meal and experience for us, we didn’t want to eat anything else and just wanted to get out of there. Staff were apologetic, the dish with the plastic in it was removed from the bill. A real shame as the food was really good and we were all enjoying our lunch.
Third time - loud beyond belief.
Caesar salad was chopped. Over dressed,
The appetizer crostini was on 3/4” thick pieces of bread. The tomato made the bread more like a soggy pizza.
Now to the service. The hostess walked up and down the tables every 5 minutes with her Ipad. My bet is every tables’ progress was noted so table turn could be managed. Food was delivered in minutes after ordering. Entrees arrived with Apps on table. The desert menu was offered when entrees were still on the table and the bill was delivered with the desserts.
The coffee was good but lukewarm. Wouldn’t want to wait while it cooled!
This was my third visit. My first two reviews were not positive. There are lots of better Italian restaurants in Houston.
Great food and service.
Food is always delicious. on this night, the service was below par. it took about an hour to receive our food. a table next to our ordered food about 15 minutes after us, and received their meal 15 minutes before us. the waiters did bring some food to our table half an hour after we ordered, but it was for the wrong table.
this was hopefully an anomaly, as we have always enjoyed north.
It takes a LONG time to get through a meal here. The food was great, but please don’t come here expecting to get through a meal in under 1.5 houra
It was great but the service was terrible. It took 25-30 minutes to get dessert. It took at least 15 minutes to get drink refills.
Waiter was efficient but not overly attentive. The truffle garlic bread is very tasty when warm but not so great after it cools off. Pasta dishes are very yummy!
