Good wine and beer selection. Excellent calamari appetizer but black ink calamari pasta entree subpar. Overall good but not exceptional.

Our server was the BEST! Provided the best wine selection and food. I’m very picky but wanted to try something new. We ordered a bottle of wine and our glass was never empty. He provided the best service we have had in years!!

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.

We had the calamari which was tender and delicious. My husband enjoyed his ‘pig’ pizza and I loved my seafood pasta. The waitress was polite and attentive. We will return there again. It was a fun night out.

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 ordered two pizzas for the table, they took almost an hour to come out and then when we got them they were burnt.
I put in the notes it was my moms birthday, but nothing was done to acknowledge it even after I went inside and asked them to please bring a dessert or something that I was happy to pay for. My family was in from out of town to celebrate and north is all of our favorite restaurant so it was a pretty big disappointment.

The downtown North Italia is one of our very favorite restaurants Great food, attentive service, and a wonderful front desk that will find you a table where you are comfortable as there are numerous seating options. We celebrate many of our special events at North Italia and the management always comes by to assure a quality experience. One of Austin's BEST!

My first time there with my girlfriends. The food was amazing. Server seemed uninterested in the table to begin with, asked some questions gave her some time to break out of her shell and as the evening went on she became more attentive and redeemed herself. Garlic bread didn’t come out with the other appetizers but we still enjoyed it nonetheless, the ricotta cheese on top really made it so delicious. Such a beautiful restaurant, great drinks and wine. Would definitely recommend it for moderately priced, fresh Italian food!

My husband and I waited several weeks to have a date night since we have two small babies. And I was really looking forward to going here to have some good Italian food, because I love Italian.

The service was awful. The atmosphere was disappointing. We waited 20 minutes just for my husbands beer and a $20 glass of sour spoiled wine. They did bring a fresh glass, but we had to ask multiple people to even bring our main course out. My salad wasn’t even prepared properly. It was supposed to be the avocado arugula one, there was no shaved fennel but instead there was cheese, avocado and arugula. I’m not even sure that the salad was supposed to have cheese.

And the staff had a table next to ours. They were loud and even eavesdropping on our conversation and kept telling us about their work and interrupting our time there. It was very unprofessional.

My husband liked his chicken Parmesan but for $120 dinner it was a complete disappointment.

When we got there for our reservations they didn’t have our table. They said it was because people had been staying for 2 hours beyond when they were done eating. However, after getting to our table and getting drinks our server didn’t come see us for 45 minutes. They may have been understaffed but 45 min is a little too long to be waiting to just put our order in.

However, the views are great, the food is great, a little pricier but delicious.
