I've been to North Italia in both Austin and Irvine. Consistently good food, great wine list and the service is quick and friendly.
Amazing food! Great service! Truly represents FRC for their love for food, drinks and time with others.
North Italia has never let us down for a great meal and experience!
North is consistent with its quality of food, menu options (many of which can be modified into Vegetarian or to suit even a highly selective diner), and service. The wait staff are very friendly and if there’s ever a problem, management is quick to address and resolve it. All of the items I’ve tried have been terrific, but the Salted Caramel Budino is so amazingly delicious I wanted to be submerged in a vat of it. It’s my favorite dessert from any restaurant, anywhere. I’ve been for lunch and dinner and have been surprised to find other diners with infants, babies, and toddlers during dinner service. This restaurant does not seem like a “family” place as the seating/tables are closely spaced so if you’re next to a family, you’re essentially dining with them. Otherwise, the ambiance is perfectly suited for an intimate date or dining with a small group of friends.
Friends gave us a gift card and I really didn't know much about the place. Showed up an hour early (don't ask) and left happy campers. I will be back! Food was incredible, great / personable service - I could go on and on! Win win all the way around...
Had a great experience with the food selections and wine. "The Pig" pizza was excellent and I had it with the Gluten Free option for the crust.
It was good. Waited a bit for follow up service but wasn’t bad. Overall had a good time. Food was very good but there was a difference from another North Italia.
North continues to be one of our favorites for all occasions. The service from start to finish to continue to return. The homemade pasta & bread are sooo good! Can't wait to return!
The restaurant ambiance / decor is awesome and up to date. Food is amazing...however I did get sick from it during my last experience. I will be back but I will have to retire my love of the chicken pesto pasta.
Great but said they ran out of espresso
Great restaurant to go out with the girls , or go on a date . The absolutely food is delicious and the service is fast . I recommend you make a reservation, because this place gets really at night busy regardless of the day .
Love this place, one of my favorites! Their bombolinis (Italian donuts) are just the most amazing pillows that melt in your mouth. Everything we get there is amazing, and the restaurant is beautiful, both inside and out!
Hostess and female server were excellent even though the restaurant was very busy. My wife ordered scallops which were good but cold. We would have sent them back just to heat them up but all the servers were obviously working at full steam and we didn't want to add to the chaos. Putting cold/cool food on a very hot plate is just not enough to make the food exceptionally palatable.
It was ok but the birthday portion didn’t happen with free cake
On 4-15 at 2:55 stopped for a late lunch. Waited 10 minutes for someone to come over. Waited another 35 minutes for food. Waitresses were folding napkins and sweeping floor the whole time.
Very disappointed. We do eat there regularly and never have been treated this way
First time there and pleasantly surprised about the good food and service.
Excellent dinner. I would highly recommend the short rib pasta. Can’t wait to go back!
We ate at North Italia for my husbands birthday. The food was delicious the service was great. Little pricey but worth it.
Food was excellent. We enjoyed it. Service was ok. Waited awhile for drink and bread. Had to ask. Did not get birthday dessert even though I did specify on the reservation.
Love this place. Just visit here to enjoy food. My friend and I enjoyed food and felt to be healthy.
Ambiance, food, drinks were all wonderful! Server was good and never rushed us out but never really refilled water after we paid the bill...
It’s always a love hate relationship with North.... horrendous traffic jams 24/7 in their terrible location. Always loud, always a wait even with reservations. Service is never bad but it can be a wait sometimes for your food. So why do i keep going back? The food! Great reasonably priced food. And those pizzas? Now that’s real love!
Great food, excellent service. Usually very busy at lunch so make a reservation, their pastas are absolutely incredible and dont miss the trufle garlic bread
Very nice reception from host and found a table that was what I needed to talk.
I really enjoyed all the food we ordered, including truffle bread, short rib pasta, scallops and tiramisu.
Wonderful food and service as always!!! It was my moms birthday and she felt very welcome and taken care of!!!!
Good service, great food
I have eaten at this location a few times and usually very consistent. This past time, I took my family for my birthday and food, service, wait time was less than stellar. I made reservations, so seating was fast, but we waited over an hour for food to be served and there were only 4 of us. I order the salmon every time, so I know how it is supposed to taste and it tasted like an ingredient was missing this time. We decided not to chance it and grab dessert at another establishment. I wish we had a different outcome - so sad.
Another incredible Fox Restaurant. The food was amazing and there was a great selection of handcrafted cocktails.
Amazing food and great service! Seated quickly with reservation!
Service was very slow. Food took 45 minutes. Not going back anytime soon.
Celebrated a birthday during lunch rush. We had the best server (Brad or Brandon?) so attentive. Recommended awesome dishes. Overall great experience.
Will be returning
It was my birthday. I am so happy to come here. Super good service!!! I love it very much. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is nice! Birthday dessert is free. Enjoyed my birthday soooo well. Definitely recommend. 5 stars
I unfortunately got extremely ill right after having their mussels appetizer and called the restaurant the next day to let them know. Left my name and phone number.
The hostess was curt & rude to every woman. I waited for a table just long enough to realize she greeted men differently. The restaurant was so loud I could barely hear my husband. Food was over-sauced & service was nothing special.
Great meal. Sat in front of the kitchen window and was able to watch the energy in the kitchen.and packaging of home made pasta.
We loveNorth Italia!! Great drinks, delicious meal, beautiful ambiance.
The manager was super sweet and nice and the food was absolutely delicious and out of this world!! The calamari was the best I have ever had. Will def go back because the flavors are just to die for.
But our waiter was actually kind of rude and totally made me wait and when I tried to get his attention to get some attention and order a drink he was totally annoyed.
I would def not go back again - no matter how good
the food was - but the manager made up for it and my friend who recommended it says the service is usually good.
