Not really impressed with the food here. Looking at the menu, it looks great but the food is not tasty. Give it a 2 1/2 out of 5. My husband had the wagu, it was chewy and tough, I had the branzino it was not all the way cooked and not flavorful, my friend had the salmon and just not great. The salads were good. We had the short rib appetizer which was pretty good. Many other great Italian restaurants..even chains, that are better. The ambiance was cool and staff, very friendly. We probably won't go back.

In these Covid times, table were WAY too close together. While I understand there are different interpretations of the 6 foot guidance, we were not an adequate distance away from every table.There were also several patrons walking around the restaurant without their mask as I encountered a couple of ppl in the restroom. I love the food at North Italia and always enjoy my meal. While I will frequent other locations I will NOT return to the Reston location.

Hadn't been here in quite a long time and am happy to say I plan to return again soon! Our server, Christine, was excellent. She could describe the dishes and recommend items to meet our needs and wants.
We did the HH special of pizza and a bottle of wine for $26. We had the margherita pizza and bottle of pinot grigio. Also started with the caesar salad and finished with the salted caramel budino. Very very yummy and a great value.

I wanted this to be 5 stars, but cannot fudge the numbers. The food was fantastic, 5 *
the waitress personality and ambition 5*, however paying attention to detail and getting things right, 1* Please note, I still left a 42.7% tip on a $103 bill. 1) I specifically asked to have my bill and my gratuity split on two cards, because it was a business dinner, so I use my business card for the meal, and my personal card for the gratuity. Not only did this not get done the first time as asked, 2) the second attempt the waitress charged the meal to my personal card, and the gratuity to my business card. 3) We ordered pistachio gelato and lemon gelato for dessert, I received extremely freezer burnt pistachio, and my guest received some flavor other than lemon gelato; 4) I explained I was ok to eat the freezer burnt gelato, but asked it be removed from my bill, I was brought another gelato 5) I asked to have the wrong flator gelato removed from the bill, we got a lemon gelato; 6) When I pointed out the bills were wrong and they didn't remove the gelato, she came back with two checks, still charging me for both gelatos. If it were super busy, I would understand, but I think the waitress was a bit to arrogant for the service we received.

Thank you for sharing your frustrations. There is nothing worse than having difficulties with payment after a nice meal. It sounds like we need revisit payment processing with our staff to make the final transaction as smooth as possible. I'm glad you enjoyed the food, but I wish we had provided service to match. If you would please make a reservation with a manager before your next visit, we will make sure this doesn't happen again. JD Russell General Manager

Great service with Megan, and had a nice booth table with great social distancing between the tables. Loved their small plates - you MUST try their truffle garlic bread app - it's AMAZING! Really loved their diver scallops entree with risotto, and also enjoyed the shrimp scampi (a bit salty, but delicious sauce for dipping). For dessert, must try the Hazelnut Torta - divine! Prices are a little high, but the food is wonderful and nice ambiance. We'll be back soon!

Food and drink were so good, which is consistent with what I have come to expect. My only comment is that with outdoor seating, it is harder to keep things hot - like tea. Wish they had little teapots to keep the water hot. Otherwise, it was perfection. I think it is the best restaurant at the Reston Town Center right now.

Went to North Italia with my wife for a Friday date night. We sat out on the patio. The service was prompt and attentive. We started with salads, then split a pizza. Then, as a surprise, our serve brought us a serving of meatballs, free of charge. Everything was outstanding, but the meatballs were beyond outstanding. I finished with their Italian butter cake, which was worth every calorie. I do think that they're a bit too proud of their wines--on the expensive side for what they are--but these days, I get that restaurateurs have to make money somewhere. We'll be regulars, for sure!
