The food took forever and it was cold when it came out. Had a reservation and still had to wait 20 minutes. Food was below average.

They have certainly hit the motherload with this restaurant.

Packed consistently , long waiting lines, booking a must .

Place is noisy but the food is worth any wait, at all levels this must be rated some of the best and reasonably priced Italian food in Houston..

Brilliant concept attracts old and young alike..
Congrats to owners

I hate waiting, don’t mind the noise, but can’t resist the place

Had reservations for 5:45pm and did not finish until 7:03p. Our waitress could not understand a bombay gin on the rocks with a twist of lemon, repeated 3 times and got a lime and it took 25 minutes to get. Waited too long for cold zucca chips followed by a long wait for the pizza. The pizza delivery person knew it was to long and did not charge for it. The noise and the music make it hard to relax. This North is not operated like the mothership in Arizona!’

Las salsa tienen sabor especial, excelentes platos y el servicio es bueno, aunque debería mejorar la capacitación de los mozos.
El ruido dentro es muy elevado, deberían trabajar en mejorar la acústica. Hay que elevar la voz para compartir una conversación. Resultado es molesto el nivel ruido.
En Denver North Italia es mejor que aquí en Houston

Valentine’s $65 per person for 3 courses. Wasn’t really anything special and our waiter was an airhead, literally just kept sending wrong things to the wrong places and like not really listening to what we wanted, just kind of doing his own thing. Lucky I love the food here so much, because if I’m going to go spend 145$+ for two people then the service, food and entire experience should all be seamless. We went to a chili’s this week with more attentive and caring staff, but the food at North Italia is amazing and I will continue to go back.

We had reservations at 5:30 but with Houston traffic we were almost 30 minutes late, however they were very accommodating and seated us right away. Great service and ambiance, would highly recommend.

Service was excellent, food and drinks were perfect. When phoning in a reservation, no one answered, so I felt it necessary to come in person to ensure our large party would be able to get a table outside.

The server we had made our experience terrible. He was not kind. Only came to our table once after we received food and drinks. Didn’t bother to ask anything. I asked for the happy hour menu and he said there was no happy hour because of valentines. I only went there for happy hour and expressed that it was my first time visiting and his response was. Well there is no happy hour. I I was disappointed with his treatment towards me while I waited for my guest. We just wanted a drink and small plate. Simple, the server made the experience terrible.
The place is cery pretty unfortunately, we will not come back.

First they sat us at a table and about 10 minutes they sat a couple at a table beside us. Waiter came and took their order first. After telling the waiter we were there first, he was apologetic n did everything possible to put us as priority but our order got lost twice n sent to wrong table n then finally given to us cold. We were so hungry so we kept it n ate it. Miguel, our waiter told the manager n he comp our main dish. It was our Valentines Day dinner n it was ruined. We will not be back.

Don't get me wrong, the food was good. My wife's Short Rib Radiatori was super tasty and my Margherita Pizza very good (though I'd argue that Mod Pizza's are better). But was it worth the cost, the long drive from The Woodlands, and noisy atmosphere? No. Will we go back? Not any time soon.

Good food, it’s creative and fresh. We enjoyed it. Even in a Sunday evening it was busy and we learned they are set up for tables of 2 and 4 so a party of 5 or 6 is a challenge. We had a party of 5 and we were seated together after a short wait so it all turned out well. Sunday was half-price wine night so we took advantage and it was great.

We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation and was seated at our reservation time. The restaurant was packed and quite loud. We were greeted immediately and drinks were brought promptly. We ordered the calamari and the white truffle garlic bread...that bread was quite possibly the best appetizer I have ever eaten and it arrived quickly. I ordered the pizza and my husband had the bolognese pasta dish. My pizza was absolutely delicious and my husband loved his dish as well. It was pretty cool that the kitchen was glassed in because you could see the pasta being made fresh as well as other items being made my hand. My only complaint was that I would not hear what my husband was saying and I felt I had to talk really loudly to communicate but overall I highly recommend this restaurant. We didn't come to talk...we came for awesome food and we absolutely got it!!

Too loud!
Poor selection of Italian dishes.
Ridiculous wine menu as far as prices go! And I am a knowledgeable, experienced wine drinker with a fairly large wine collection.
More of a Sports bar feel than a fine dining Italian meal restuarant.
