Always cold inside, waiters expect you to clear your place setting to receive your food, little concept of service, food quality is good.

Carrie provided the most exquisite customer service on top of the already euphoric experience. The food, ambiance, and music was nothing short of outstanding.

Great food and good service. Was very crowded early on Sunday for dinner. If you live Italian, you’ll love the food here.

Always a great experience at North! Our waiter was amazing and his suggestions were spot on! We started with a Cesar salad and Calamari and 2 glasses of wine recommended by our waiter. For entrees we had the pasta Bolognese and the Strozzapreti both were amazing! The portions were perfect, I even had a little to take home! We will be back!

The waitress who served was excellent, but the waitress that I spoke about reservation was very rude.
The pasta taste was awesome, but I like al dente pasta, I should have order so. The taste was great!

We loved the "Pig" pizza and the cheese board. The Happy Hour Sangria was excellent, and the price was right! Our waiter was great, and we will definitely go back. The only problem was the noise issue. My husband and I had trouble visiting with each other, but "people watching" in the absence of conversation was fun.

Food was good and had an exciting vibe but the noise was way too loud for my taste. I like to dine and have great conversation and relax. I found myself shouting all night long.

We always enjoy our time at North Italia, but tonight was extra special. We don’t often venture into the city from the burbs, but when we do, we hope for a great experience. Juanito served us and made us feel like royalty. He was very attentive, the food was excellent and the entire staff seems to genuinely love working at North. We loved every minute and will definitely be back again soon. Thank you for great service!

-We were seated 30 min AFTER our reservation
-The restaurant was loud and crowded — much more than one might expect for a Thursday evening
-After offering us sparkling water, it turned out that they were completely out of it. Not a big deal, but definitely a first for us
-No complimentary bread with Italian food(?)
-The bread we did order was greasy/oily
-When the reservation was made, we noted that it was for a birthday. The restaurant did absolutely nothing. Perhaps, I should have pressed our host or server about this harder...

Food and service just fantastic in a busy, casual atmosphere. It’s hard to have a business conversation here though so will come here for social events mainly in the future. Really good experience and first class staff.

The only annoying part is how loud the restaurant is, and people talk even louder to be heard, unfortunately also by the table next or across

I would definitely recommend North Italia. It’s in a great location with parking right next door! My only concern is that it’s a bit loud for me, and I’d like to see bread served with the meal. Otherwise, we enjoyed our visit. The food was very good!

Okay place for a 20 year old. Had to shout to be heard and tables on top of each other. Raise your prices instead of pretending we are riding the rush hour underground in London

Food is excellent! It’s very loud but has a great vibe. I don’t like that the tables are very close together. We were with several very loud people and I felt like we were disturbing the people next to us.

Absolutely amazing food at every location. I’ve been in Austin, Dallas, and Houston. Meals consistently delicious and beautiful presentation. Houston location is very loud like the Austin Domain spot, but not overly bothersome. Just the vibe of the place, with open kitchen and tables somewhat closer together. Juan is a GEM of a server. Ask for him at Houston. He was extremely warm, welcoming and quick. Kept my son giggling and made our experience great!
