I have been to North Italia so many times and as always the food and service were outstanding . But , this time it seems that the portion were smaller than in the past . At first I thought that it was just a random observation, but I have noticed that the same applied to the neighboring tables . Other than that , I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience

Great food and vibe, but with its lively atmosphere and hopping bar scene, better for fun out with friends than a quiet first date.

Scrumptious dinner and energetic atmosphere. The waiter was attentive and periodically checked if we needed anything even though the place was packed! The meals were a bit pricey but worth it; definitely make a reservation so you don't have to wait for the seats.

Birthday dinner for one guest. Customer service was great. I ordered the beef tenderloin medium rare and it was way too rare for me. I sent it back and got the chicken parm instead. I was skeptical about ordering a steak at a non steak restaurant. Chicken parm was excellent and the desserts were even better. I appreciate the waiter correcting the issue.

The food was good as usual. The only issue we had was that the pizza arrived at the same time as our salads.

We’ve noticed slow and poor service over our last two visits. I still love their food. It was also very noisy.

Food and service were great, however, we were wildly disappointed by our Valentine’s Day experience at this restaurant. I made my reservation about a month in advance to secure a table at the time we wanted. When we came to the door we were promptly greeted by the hostess, gave the name for the reservation and were seated. The hostess took us to a table in the bar area (looked like it was typically for walk ins) to a table for 6 with ANOTHER COUPLE ON THE OTHER SIDE. Additionally, we could see multiple tables in the restaurant area that were empty. I’m not sure how a restaurant manager could see it appropriate to sit a couple that had a reservation at a table with two complete strangers on Valentine’s Day. A manager also made sure to check and see how we liked the food but made sure to hurry away so we could not talk about the table situation. Then the next day I wake up to an email from open table saying the restaurant “no-showed” us for our reservation. I clearly stated my name to the hostess and it feels like we were purposely no showed so she could put us at the community table in the bar area. Very disappointing experience.

Great service is the game here, consistent food, wonderful attention to detail in the presentation, superb in house made products!

North Italia should the standard other restaurants should emulate!

Spectacular Valentines Day price-fix menu, Great service; as the Norm - if something is not perfect to a customers liking, both the staff & management make it right!

Why can’t other restaurant venues provide “Over-the-Top-Service and Experience? Kudos to North Italia 🤠

Noise level was extreme, food mediocre, inconsistent service, we were charged for an extra entree; most importantly, there are much better Italian restaurants in Houston.

We would like to mention An and than her for her great service: She offered a great service. While she was always around, she wasn't interrupting the conversation. She was very helpful with the menu, great personality and a lovely smile. A combination of everything you need to start your Sunday on a very positive note!

The quality of food was great. This was our first time at the restaurant for a brunch which did not disappoint us.

It’s used to be one of our favorite places to go. But not sure if we will go back after this last visit. We found an insect in my ice, and a kid kicked over the plates sending broken pieces across hitting me in the face. Luckily didn’t hit me in the eye. The sitting just too crowded. The manager did offered to comp us a dessert. We (2 people) still spent $60+ for brunch with no alcohol beverages. Not a good experience.

The food and service were excellent! I would highly recommend. But the noise level was uncomfortable. Two friends joined us and we were shouting, literally to be heard. The waitress told us the noise level is pretty bad in the restaurant. Would go again for sure but maybe at lunch or any day but Friday or Saturday

We ordered the Margarita pizza and Chicken Pesto Pasta to split. Our server was nice enough to split the pasta into two bowls to make it easier for my wife and I to share. The biggest thing that stands out with their food is the freshness. It’s clear that the bread and pasta is cooked in the kitchen from scratch!

The overall service was good but food was just subpar. The main dish took a while to come out and the bolognese did not taste as flavorful as it usually does. It tasted watered down as if the kitchen was in a rush and didn’t drain all the water from the pasta.

Hands down best experience in a very long time ! Management team and waitstaff made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. Teamwork makes the dream work mentality is alive and well in this establishment.
