I love North, this visit was extra special because I brought my boyfriend for his first time, he was very indecisive but our waiter was nice and helpful. I will say that it did take our drinks some time to get to us but I figured because it was a bit busy. I work in the service industry as well so I wasn’t bothered by it.

Frequent customer of this restaurant. Food and service outstanding as usual but no coffee, expresso, or cappuccino available.... at an Italian restaurant?

We had great dinner and service at North the other night. The only challenge is that is it always very loud and very difficult to hear even across the table to have a conversation. If they could put some better sound acoustics in the restaurant to cut the noise it would make a big difference in the overall experience.

Really enjoy North Italia every time that I visit.
The food is wonderful and the servers are always polite.

Definitely suggest making reservations, especially on the weekends as the restaurant does get busy.
This is one of my favorites in Houston!

Buzzing on a Wednesday evening. Not for a quiet conversation but worth checking out. Serving is quick and most people seem to be quickly on their way again

Everything was great, all food is made in house even the pasta. The service was outstanding. If there is a negative, it's the noise level. The noise level is fairly high on a Saturday night, but it's all what you are looking for in your dining experience. If you are looking for good food with great service, then this is your spot.

Great service and great food! The food was taking longer to come out and our server brought us complimentary appetizers. We didn’t even ask or notice that the food was taking a long time but it was nice they noticed! Love this place

The staff was rude and seemed inconvenienced by any requests (more water, a plate to eat the pizza on). The servings were small and expensive, but the food was pretty good.

I got a reservation at North Italia very last minute when I was looking for a new Italian restaurant to try. I have to say that this was one of my favorite experiences at any restaurant, period. The atmosphere and style of the restaurant were absolutely wonderful and my waiter was friendly and fantastic (I, unfortunately, cannot remember his name at the moment). I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family in the future.

I have gone to North Italia a number of times. What prevents me from going any more often is the crowded wait times and noise level inside the restaurant. This visit, I decided to sit in the outdoor area which is MUCH more quiet than inside the restaurant. It's nice to have a lively atmosphere inside a restaurant, but there comes a point where the lively becomes way too loud and becomes something to be endured. I ordered my usual appetizer (grilled cauliflower) which was as usual. I tried something different from my usual short ribs: grilled salmon. The staff was accommodating and respecting my wish to keep my carb intake to a minimum, the pasta/grain portion of the dish was substituted with broccolini. The grilled salmon was very beautifully presented. It was a tad dry around the edges of the salmon filet, but the sauce rescued the dish.

I look forward to cooler and less humid weather to make sitting outside even better.

Usually it is very good but I don’t know what happened last Sunday, the food was a disaster. I hope that everything will be as before.

Our server Taylor was outstanding. One of our appetizers came out very late, manager delivered and apologized along with comping. Was extremely loud inside, recommend sitting outside if you want to have conversation.

Felt like the Charcuterie platter was lacking in many ways. Meats were great, but one cheese that wasn't fresh and in the right temp. This item is pricey and needs work!
