North Italia - Reston
Server, Jarrett, was fantastic. Helpful with food selection and attentive.
When we left we discovered the heater for outside were being put together.
Thank you...Thank you for getting them
Thank you, Tracy! We are excited to have the heaters too. Our patio at this time will be open through December! I am also excited to hear how well Jarrett took care of you. I'll be sure to pass on the compliment!
We dined there for the first time to celebrate my son's birthday. The ambience was very impressive and we really enjoyed our dinners which were tasty and beautifully presented. We especially liked our server Viviana who has a delightful energy and a warm presence. It is nice to see a good Italian restaurant in Reston Town Center once again!
Hi revlousch, Thank you for the kind words. I'll be sure to pass on your sentiments to Viviana. I know she will appreciate it. If there is anything we can do to earn a 5 star rating from you, we would love to hear it. Thanks again!
went with a reservation and was told the wait would be 25-30 minutes for outdoors, even tho they don't take reservation for outside seating and there were 3 tables for 6 available!! The tables were 2 seaters pushed together too!
The food was excellent. The ambiance was warm and inviting. We were greeted promptly and shown to our table.
Hi FayeG, Thank you for the glowing review. We really appreciate the 5 stars! If you ever need anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask.
Good service, and quality food. With Covid, the inside seating was nicely separated and very pleasant.
Hi MicheleN, Thank you for taking the time to give us a good review! Let me know if there is anything we can do to earn five stars from you on your next visit. Any feedback would be appreciated.
The food was super salty, I’ve gone here multiple times but this time was way over powering.
Hi QuinnL, Sorry to hear that the food was salty last time. I'm glad you know it isn't always that way. If your food is perfect, please don't hesitate to ask for one of my management team members. We love to hear feedback in real time. Thanks again for sharing. Hope to see you soon!
Service was excellent. Food was good but portion was very small. Our party of 4 spent $300 and left hungry.
Thank you, MikeN! I appreciate you taking the time to share with us. I'm sorry our value wasn't better for you. Next time you are in, please say hello. I'd love to show you some of my favorite items on the menu.
We were celebrating my sisters birthday. The service and the experience were amazing start to finish!
Thank you, NicoleC! We really appreciate the five star review! Please wish your sister a happy birthday from me. If you ever need anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask.
Great outdoor dining. Are you getting any heaters for the area in the overhang?
Hi Tracy, Thank you for the five stars! We are in fact working on getting heaters to extend our outdoor dining season. We hope to have them very soon as the weather is changing fast. Hope to see you soon!
Food was top quality and wonderful complimentary flavors and textures. We started with fried calamari prepared has I've never had -- delicious! The short ribs were so tender a knife was not needed and the accompanying veggies were unique and exquisite in their own right. The Dover Scallops were very good just a little salty for my taste but the corn risotto balanced it very well.
The service (Viviana) managed the perfect balance of checking in and offering suggestions without overstepping. Excellent experience!
Hi DeborahL, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your wonderful experience! We really appreciate the 5 star review. I, too, can't get enough of the Scallops and Short Ribs. Next time you are in please say hello. We would love to meet you!
Girly brunch .... great service !!
Food was delicious!
Thank you! Curious what we can do to get a five star next time?
Can’t beat the lovely setting. Excellent service- love the Zuca chips. We had the totelloni and the Pesto sauce was exceptional. Meatballs in the creamiest polenta- a must have!!
Hi PamC, Thank you for the five stars! I am so happy we could provide you with great service. And, yes, the meatballs and polenta are incredible. I make sure to do a 'quality check' everyday!
Another enjoyable dining experience.
Thank you, RockT! If you ever need anything at all, just let us know!
First restaurant that I have been to that charges for bread (and olive oil). The food was decent but not memorable for the price. Our party of four had various pasta dishes and all had the same reaction . Calamari was good. Coating nice and light. Service was very good. Server was attentive and was on top of things.
Hi DMK3, I happy to hear that you had good, attentive service, but I'm sorry we charged you for bread. We do have a menu item of grilled bread with Olive oil and Saba, but we also offer complimentary table bread upon request. I hope you'll give us a second chance to give you a five star experience. Please reach out to me directly for a reservation at jrussell@northitalia and I will make sure you have an amazing time.
Always excellent food and service at North!
Thank you, RobW, for the 5 stars! If you ever need anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask. Hope to see you again soon!
Our server Meghan was great. She was friendly and her recommendations were excellent. The food was delicious. We will certainly be back soon.
Thank you for the 5 stars! If you ever need anything at all, we are here to serve. Hope to see you again soon.
The food was amazing! ...and the service was great as well. Can't wait to go back.
Thank you, LindaM! I really appreciate the 5 stars. Next time you are in please say hello. We can't wait to have you back!
Short ribs were fabulous
Hi Annetastes, Thank you for the five star rating! I had the short ribs for dinner that very same day. I'm glad you enjoyed them as much as I did.
Got the prosciutto pizza... it was amazing! Also their outdoor seating was great/ good for anyone that is nervous about inside seating. All servers wore masks and followed all guidelines.
Food and drinks were outstanding. Great service.
Thank you for the five stars! We are so glad you enjoyed your food and drinks.
We always have an excellent experience at North Italia!
Thank you RobW! Please say hello next time you are in. My team would love to meet you!
This was our first visit to North Italia. We went with friends and enjoyed the evening. Although our reservation was at 5 and the restaurant was basically empty, it took over 10-15 minutes to receive our first drink order. Each food item we ordered took quite a long time to be delivered. I wasn't upset by this as we were enjoying our time together with friends. However, I could see how this would be extremely annoying if you wanted to get in and out in a normal amount of time. The waiter was great, but service was slow. The food was delicious. I ordered the flank steak, which was wonderful, but came rare when I ordered medium. Had to wait while the rest of my party finished their meals. Annoying.
Hi Leigh, Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review. Too often we get a number without any explanation. It sounds like our timing and speed of service was off that day. I really appreciate the four stars; it's quite generous given your experience. We will dig into this day and see where we can improve our performance. Thanks again for letting us know how we can be better.
Great Time at North Italia. Food was very good and you can't beat the HHR.
Thank you BeachDiva1! Hopefully we can get back to our usual Happy Hour groups soon enough.
Food was great, table was nice and so were the staff. I would definitely go back.
Hi JenniferL, Thank you for taking the time to send a 5 star review! We are so glad you enjoyed everything. Let us know next time you plan on visiting; we would love to meet you. Thanks again!
Host at the door was so nice, our server was so friendly and professional as well. We really enjoyed our lunch.
Hi TVYS, Thank you for giving us such a glowing review. We really appreciate it! If you ever need anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks again!
The food and service were great but we did not get the 100 points from open table for the reservation. It might be the fault of the restaurant or open table. we contacted open table to fix it but they have not.
bad open table!
Hi Remop, Thank you for taking the time to give us 5 stars! Sorry to hear about the points issue. Let know if they s anything we can do on our end to help resolve it. Next time you are in, please say hello. We would love to meet you!
First time to North Italia. And we’ll be back. Took a little longer than necessary to get our salad and bread, but not enough to detract from evening. Food was great and Jarrett was tremendous.
Go and enjoy!
That's great to hear, RockT! Thank you for the 5 stars despite the salads taking some time. Next time you are in, please say hello. We would love to meet you!
Excellent as usual. A dependable "go-to" restaurant.
Thank you, KenL! If you ever need anything at all, please don't hesistate to ask. Looking forward to your next visit!
It was nice sitting outside. Our waitress was great. The food was great. Will go again!
Thank you, Kris! So glad you enjoed our patio. Be sure to come back soon before it gets too cold!
This was our first visit, the food was superb . Our server, Amber was fun and knowledgeable. We considered our evening a great success. We will diffidently be back soon.
Thank you for sharing. We are delighted to have Amber working with us. Next time you are in, please say hello. We would love to meet you!
We ate underneath the trees and it was marvelous.
Hi Tracy, Thank you for the 5 stars! We are love our patio too. Please say hello next time you are in. I'd love to meet you.
Great Italian comfort food! We have been many times and have never been disappointed. The service is wonderful and always cheerful. You never feel rushed, but the food is always well timed. Excellent!
Hi Shelby04, Thank you for the 5 star review! If you ever need anything at all please don't hesitate to ask. Hope to see you soon.
We sat outside on a beautiful evening, great ambience and excellent food. Service was a little slow for the food to come out but I think the staff was limited so completely understandable. Will definitely go back!
Hi Amanda, Thank you for giving us 5 stars! While I'm glad you are so understanding with staffing challenges, could you let me know what time you dined with us? I just want to follow up with any issues we may have had that day and not everyone is as forgiving as you are. Next time you are in please introduce yourself. We would love to meet you. Thanks again for sharing!
the chicken parm was dried out and tasteless, but the Bolognese was excellent as always. Next time I will stick with their pasta dishes only.
We sat outside on the patio and the roar of motorcycle traffic on Market Street was disruptive.
Thank you for sharing, Lillie. I'm shocked (and sorry) that the Chicken Parmesan was dry and tasteless. What time were you in on Monday? I would like to follow up with my Chef to see where we went wrong with that dish. I would like to have you try it again, on us, next time your in the restaurant. Just ask for any manager and we will make sure you have our Chicken Parmesan perfectly prepared.
Delicious food, good service, beautiful patio. We did notice however that the trees were strung with lights that never came on after dark.
Thank you, LeslieD for the 5 stars! We are so glad you enjoyed our patio! We have been working with the landlord on the timing for the string lights. Hopefully it will be lit up for your next visit.
Had a great time, fantastic food and amazing service! Got some great recommendations from our waitress and the bar tender helped us pick a great bottle of wine 👌🏻 we’ll definitely be back soon!
Thank you, HannahC! We are so happy to hear that our service staff led you in the right in the right direction. Please introduce yourself to our managers on your next visit. We would love to meet you!
Pizza and a salad for $50 including iced tea and gratuity is rather expensive.
Thank you for sharing. If it's a great value you're looking for than check out our happy hour from 3 - 6 Monday through Friday in the bar area. We offer reduced pricing on many appetizers and pizzas. Hope to see you soon!
Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Can't ask for more! I will definitely be back.
Hi Sonny11, Thank you for the great review. If you ever need anything at all please don't hesitate to ask!
So good! Service was great. We sat outside and it was a beautiful day.
Glad you enjoyed your time with us on the patio!
