The staff is so great and the atmosphere is very vibrant. This is a louder restaurant, lots of people, fast pace. But the food is delicious and fresh - we were celebrating a birthday and they had a nice special complimentary dessert with a candle which was very sweet. 10 out of 10 for food quality and diversity.

Wonderful experience overall , food is delicious and so the serving staff but only issue we had was that i and wifey arrived with a reservation for 8:45pm on Friday evening . But it still took the restaurant host 30 minutes to get us a table , we didn’t really like the idea of waiting over 10 minutes with the reservation as beats the purpose of using open table or any other platform to reserve a table.
But other than that loved the calamari and chicken pesto pasta 👍🏻

We had overall good experience having dinner at North Italia. The white truffle bread is really good and highly recommend it as a starter. I had asked our server about my main dish prior to ordering. It was the Squid Ink Malfadine with shrimp, calamari and Calabrian chili. The level of spice and how spicy it would be. He said “not spicy”.
Well the dish came out.. it was piping hot. Which, I do like my food served that way but the sauce was extremely spicy after several bites! It was a busy night and didn’t feel like returning my food. I had to ask for extra bread to make it through my meal. Everything else was good.

I brought a friend here for the first time & he loved it. I of course loved every bit of my experience here as per usual & our waiter Juan did a wonderful job explaining the menu & pointing out his favorites from starters, pasta dishes, cocktails & desserts. All in all great spot, especially for a nice date.

Consistently fantastic food and service. I love their pastas and pizzas. Try the Burrata appetizer, you won’t be disappointed! It’s always busy, so expect that the noise level is high and there’s a lot of energy around the restaurant! Wine selection is really good but very over priced, so be forewarned and not overly concerned when you see your selection for less than a quarter of the menu price on Vivino!

Food is excellent as it always is. Service was pretty bad. Our waitress looked like she would have rather been anywhere else in the world besides waiting tables. We've found this place is consistently inconsistent with service. They have outstanding quality control over their food, but not their waitstaff. Service is always hit or miss every time we go.

We celebrated my birthday at North Italia with friends and family. Everyone loved their food and the service was professional. We asked to change from the original table we were given which was uncomfortable and were politely and quickly accommodated. We love this restaurant and just wish we had one closer to home in The Woodlands.

This was by far one of the best dining experiences I have ever had the pleasure of having. North is my girlfriends favorite date spot so it was only fitting that I made reservations for our one year anniversary here! Upon arrival we were sat promptly at a great table and everything I mentioned in the notes of my reservation was addressed. The hostess wished us a happy anniversary and we were sat w/ Cody who i requested. He made the experience an amazing one for my lady and that meant everything to me. I just want to say Thank you so much to Cody and all of the team at North Italia! You guys are awesome
