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.

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'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.

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.

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!

Food took an hour and was mediocre quality at best. The Market up value on a salad is ridiculous.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
