The reason for my negative post.... It was my GF's B day and I was super excited to surprise her that I had a reservation during the snow storm while the restaurants downtown ALL had LONG lines and little food options if you could even get inside. We had waited in several lines for hours hoping to get food only to be disappointed and left Cold and Hungry. We made it to the resturant only to find they were closed and DID NOT TURN OFF their open table reservation portal. We were ALL suffering during this time in Texas and Many other states. Resturant 101, Manage your Business and take care of your customers!!

Made reservation, went by restaurant before it opened and employees were present. Sign on door said closed for lunch. Did not mention dinner. Arrived for reservation and they were closed. I recognize the weather was inclement and understand closing. They should either take availability down from OpenTable or call reservation holders, as other restaurants and managers did during this snow event. Courtesy doesn’t go out of style with bad weather.

Disappointed. We had reservations for 5:30pm on Monday the 15th. I get that the entire city is currently on shutdown, but we should at least get a cancellation notice. That would’ve been great, other than having us drive over there and getting to an empty restaurant.

I have never been to North Italia, but after the wonderful date night we had, it was a great choice. We made reservations about 4 weeks in advance for an 8:15pm but wanted around 7-7:30. I checked Opentable daily and called at least 3 times a week for an earlier dinner time, all to no avail. It was covid-packed by the time we got there and there were even some patrons crowding around the host stand and I could tell it was making some of the employees a little nervous as it was a bit much.
Our wait to be seated was less than 5 minutes and as soon as we sat down we were promptly greeted by John L. who was so awesome! The only negative about a late reservation was that we really wanted calamari and they had run out, so that was bummer. Instead, for apps, we dined on the Italian meatballs and white truffle garlic bread.
Mains consisted of the branzino (thank goodness there was no head) and the wagyu skirt steak tagliata. Both meals were amazing! I was excited about the butter cake as my favorite is from Maestro's, but, sadly, it was not even close to what I had hoped for. The bombolini was just ok. Next time, I'll shoot for the hazelnut torta.
Drink musts are the grapefruit martini and ginger blossom margarita....yummy

We had a 12:30p reservation for brunch, and arrived an hour early. The staff was able to quickly get us seated. The food was delicious and priced accordingly. I would recommend North Italia to anyone.

The food was delicious but the hostess was very rude when we had a mix up with the reservation. Once seated, the unfriendliness carried over from the hostess to the waitress. We felt very unwelcome. I also included in the reservation that we were celebrating my birthday, and this was completely disregarded. The food was good, but the staff made my birthday dinner hard to enjoy.

We chose North Italia for its patio dining because we still are not comfortable with indoor dining. The patio was big but the heater wasn’t really working well. So it was and ok experience.

My first time at this restaurant and they stole 8 dollars off my card for a tip. I had to call corporate to deal with this issue and my bank. I got my money back and they sent me a gift card. FAST FORWARD to this month I decide to give this place another shot and they made everything perfect for me and my boyfriend. but when I paid I used cash no card.
This place has great food for the price but I wouldn't pay on a card I would get cash first to buy the meals.

I’m a huge fan of this place! I was introduced to North in Houston, but once I found that there was one in Austin it is my go to date night place. My husband literally doesn’t even have to ask where I want to go for my birthday, valentines, etc!
I always get the burrata app, prosciutto pizza, and the tiramisu. I’m not kidding I dream about their food. CRAVE WORTHY:

Wonderful! I came back and brought a friend just to have her enjoy the Chef's board. Her son's French fries were delicious and the bombolis... divine.
Our service was great on a Saturday at lunch.

During Covid, so seating was a little more limited and we were right inside the entrance, other than that good service, chicken chopped salad - yum! and wine! I would reccomend - lots of out door seating as well, but it was a little chilly the day we went for lunch.

We had our favs. Calamari, Ceasar Salad and Margherita Pizza and a bottle of Rose’

Great experience. Will return soon.

I’ve been to the Domain location before however, I prefer the 2nd street location now. The ambiance is great!! The table layout is perfect- you don’t get that squished feeling.
