North Italia – BLVD
Amazing food great time
Wife’s birthday. One of our favorite restaurants. We try to go at least once a month. Great food and service. Kind of loud but I’m getting old...
Amazing restaurant with good quality food and incredible ambiance. Bathrooms could be cleaner, but this is a great place to eat or grab HH!
Short wait after rsvping with open table during peak dinner hours. Lovely environment, great food, nice drinks, and amazing service, what more could you ask for.
Really crowded but they handled it well, recommend reservations for sure. We had crispy calamari for an app, wonderful, Arugula and Avocado salad, super, and prosciutto and mission fig pizza-- Great all around, we shared those three things and it was plenty. Highly recommend this place, but not for a quiet dinner, unless you go later than dinner time. But forget the noise, just eat, it's great.
Amazing experience!! Maddie was the Bomb and the food was over the top!!
Waiter/service was excellent! Food delicious, especially dessert.
Overall good! Really noisy, at times it was difficult to hear people at the table. The service was ok, definitely could be improved. The hosts could’ve been more welcoming. The food and drinks were delicious. We enjoyed two appetizers (grilled artichoke and grilled cauliflower) along with our entrees. Everything tasted wonderful! The atmosphere was aesthetically pleasing and functional. t
The hosts could’ve been more welcoming.
Great service, food,energy, fantastic restaurant!
Service was quick and friendly. Food was amazing.
Short rib pasta was awesome
The service was absolutely incredible! Even though it was super busy and every single table was filled up, our waiter still took the time to go patiently over the menu with us while also recommending food choices.
Extremely noisy - very hard to communicate with my date
Loved everything about North
Super loud and service is mediocre despite being very well staffed. Food is good not life changing but fun place
Just lunch by myself at the bar
Great but so loud
We came for a special occasion which was noted in the reservation and our waitress didn’t mention one thing. Never asked what we came in for or anything which was a huge let down because it was for a birthday celebration and we even ordered a dessert and not a happy birthday on it or anything food was great but service definitely could have been better. I was not impressed.
The food was absolutely incredible, everything was delicious! The cocktails were fantastic as well, the only down side was how loud the restaurant was, my friends and I had to practically yell at one another even though we were sitting just a few feet away. I think the patio would be a great option to avoid that but you'll be feeling the heat.
This was our second excursion to North Italia, both for lunch. On our first visit, my wife dined on the spaghetti and meatballs . So this time, this was the dish I chose. Absolutely outstanding! The texture of the spaghetti was perfect, and the flavors in the sauce and meatballs was tantalizing! This will be my standard meal on future visits. Our waiter, Everett, was very gracious, friendly and knowledgeable. Since the kitchen is open concept, I took a few minutes to watch chefs prepare freshly made sheets of pasta dough. Upon my request, the restaurant packaged one of the sheets for me to take home for a very reasonable price. I've already used it to make my own ravioli! I highly recommend North Italia for patrons who like an informal yet pleasant dinning experience, and top rated spaghetti and meatballs!
Prompt seating, fun environment, great service and food.
We were given two dirty tables with no apology or action to rectify the situation. The hostesses were rude and back talked when we asked for a new table.
My family and I love to North.
Great food, excellent service, good vibe!
We’ve been here no at least 10 times for different occasions but this will be our last visit. Started off by being out of the tomato marmalade for the original bruschetta. The waiter suggested another appetizer that was not good. It came with really hard bread and pesto and red sauce on the bread. Took an hour to get our spaghetti with meatballs. That is a ridiculous amount of time for spaghetti and meatballs. The food is overpriced and the drinks are as well for the size that you get. The waiter was nice but it doesn’t make up for slow service from the kitchen. The waiter gave us 25% off since our food took so long, but it was forth of July, they were offering that to everyone through an email. We will not be going back.
As with all FRC restaurants, great food and a very loud room. Service was a little off tonight, however. Took over 10 minutes after being seated to have a server visit us. Food came quickly, and was hot, and cooked perfectly. Then we sat for 10 minutes after finishing to have someone clear the plates. Restaurant not full. Offered dessert but thought we might be there another 4 hours until it came. Must have just been an off night. No problem going back.
Food and service is always consistent. Dustin was our server. He was very good, considering how busy it had been.
It is consistently great! We love the atmosphere & the authentic Northern Italian cuisine!! Chicken Parmesan & Alfredo pasta a winner!! Delicious!! This is one of our favorite restaurants in Houston!👍🏻
Great food and service
Pasta is fresh n al dente. Tasty n hot! But my husband thought his pizza was over cooked as the crust is tough to chew.
I had Chef Board, Funghi Pizza and Squid Ink Mafaldine, all are extremely delicious, well balance. Lastly, finished with Tiramisu - what a meal, never regret, never disappointed.
I have had many very enjoyable experiences here, but I am disappointed to report the service has gone way downhill. Next time I will be much more likely to choose a different restaurant!
Our waitress was so friendly! Excellent service!!!
It was our first time there. The food was wonderful. Our waiter was really friendly and funny. His suggestions were spot on.
Love North from special occasion to just a casual dinner North is for all. The food and service is wonderful every time. Breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner is all great!
We have been regular patrons since this restaurant opened. We had the absolutely worst service ever that night. The management has to consider training waiters much better or just get rid of the ones that are not good.
Loved the pasta bowls, service was great!
Made a reservation but they were busy so after a wait we were seated outside. They asked us if it we were okay with a table outside and now I know to say no in the future. I think their service and the ambiance is far better inside. Our waiter was nice but he seemed overworked. Regardless, I love North and the food is consistently good. Normally a place I would give 5 stars but this particular night wasn’t the best.
I've been in quieter subway stations. The food was good, the service, too. But it was difficult to carry on a conversation with my date on the other side of a two-top.
The noise level seems loud when you first walk in but you get use to it and there is no problem hearing and talking across the table. Food and service were outstanding! Will definitely go back!
