North Italia – BLVD
Excellent food and nice atmosphere. Service was okay
Good until the end.
Forgot to bring out coffee. Then cold. Brought out ice cream melted
I got a reservation at North Italia very last minute when I was looking for a new Italian restaurant to try. I have to say that this was one of my favorite experiences at any restaurant, period. The atmosphere and style of the restaurant were absolutely wonderful and my waiter was friendly and fantastic (I, unfortunately, cannot remember his name at the moment). I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family in the future.
Food was very disappointing this experience considering I brag about this restaurant as its my favorite Italian spot in Houston.
The food and see was great.
Service was great but food was a bit salty. Great place for a late lunch with the family.
Had a great time! Food was so good
Very noisy but food was very good. Would not recommend if you want to do for a date or something intimate
Amazing food and the service was great! The food came quick and we couldn’t get enough! Highly recommend!
We really appreciated our waiter Juan who was exceptionally awesome! The food was great and tiramisu was uniquely decadent oh wow will return to try other dishes
Food was exceptional and so was the service! We will be visiting again. Highly recommend.
Great atmosphere and the best happy hour
Food is great and the atmosphere is so fun!
Enjoyed a great lunch- yuca chips, arugula salad with avocado and short rib pasta.
I have gone to North Italia a number of times. What prevents me from going any more often is the crowded wait times and noise level inside the restaurant. This visit, I decided to sit in the outdoor area which is MUCH more quiet than inside the restaurant. It's nice to have a lively atmosphere inside a restaurant, but there comes a point where the lively becomes way too loud and becomes something to be endured. I ordered my usual appetizer (grilled cauliflower) which was as usual. I tried something different from my usual short ribs: grilled salmon. The staff was accommodating and respecting my wish to keep my carb intake to a minimum, the pasta/grain portion of the dish was substituted with broccolini. The grilled salmon was very beautifully presented. It was a tad dry around the edges of the salmon filet, but the sauce rescued the dish.
I look forward to cooler and less humid weather to make sitting outside even better.
Usually it is very good but I don’t know what happened last Sunday, the food was a disaster. I hope that everything will be as before.
Our server Taylor was outstanding. One of our appetizers came out very late, manager delivered and apologized along with comping. Was extremely loud inside, recommend sitting outside if you want to have conversation.
Felt like the Charcuterie platter was lacking in many ways. Meats were great, but one cheese that wasn't fresh and in the right temp. This item is pricey and needs work!
Food was amazing.. very good quality. Noise was high, a bit loud. Entrees took a bit longer than expected, manager did come out to talk to us and let us know it would be out shortly.
Terrible service at the communal tables which we did not request but was avail after we waited past our reservation
Had to wave down waiters for drinks did too really long to come out. Reservations were for 8:45 and we did not get out of there till after 10:20. Even manager cane over bit didn’t do anything for us use to be one of our favorites not anymore
Well located with great food and great service but very very noisy.
Excellent place to visit. Very busy but great atmosphere. Food was simply incredible and I had such good service! Highly recommend hands down!
Amazing. The food was distinctly fresh hands down an incredible meal.
great food and the truffle bread is aaamazing!!!!!
North Italia is fantastic. Lots of light, excellent food, excellent service, clean bathrooms. I am a regular.
Love this place but WAY WAY too loud!
Such a great experience
Set in a beautiful space, this restaurant provides a lively atmosphere, particularly for a group. We particularly liked the open kitchen so that you can see all the food being prepared.
The service has gone down tremendously since they have gotten more popular. Our waiter charged the credit card double the correct amount with no apology. Then we told him at the beginning we were going to order a dish to go but we would order it once we were wrapping up, and he was like no, just tell me now, and I'll put it in later. So we thought, oh that's nice of him, cool, thanks. The to-go meal came out less than 5 minutes after we got our meals. Then once getting home, we realized the to-go meal was completely wrong.
Normally I love to eat here but this visit the restaurant really dropped the ball. The wait staff was inattentive, hanging out at the hostess stand. I had to repeatedly ask other wait staff for things like water refills. The artichoke was so undercooked that it was barely edible and the pasta, which is normally excellent and al dente was like chewing rubber. Hope my next visit is back up to par or it will definitely be my last visit.
The food is outstanding and the Sunday specials are great.
Like always I enjoyed dining at North. The service was great and I was appreciative when the management made me a fresh small pizza because it was taken before I was finished. That’s exemplary service. I’ll continue dining here. Thanks.
It was very loud. It appears most diners come for pizza. I ordered chicken and my companions ordered pasta dishes. The table next to us came in after us and were almost finished with their meal by the time we received our food. The roasted chicken was more grilled/fried than roasted.
Always cold inside, waiters expect you to clear your place setting to receive your food, little concept of service, food quality is good.
They have an amazing happy hour and delicious food!!
My fav place in Houston. Love the happy hour time.
Great dinner, but SO loud I couldn’t hear anything my friend was saying to me..at a 2 top table!
Very loud or may acoustics very poor can’t hear each other in our table Chicken Parm very salty again. Dessert extremely sweet. Service was a joke. Never again.
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.
