    Pretty disappointed. Service was slow. Food was expensive with small portions and cooked poorly. Really confused by the yelp reviews. We got shrimp scampi, way over cooked and not very flavorful. All the pasta was under cooked, not el dente just under cooked and kind of gummy. I got the branzino for $32 and it was 1 filet that was over cooked. My daughters squid ink pasta was probably the best dish, but even her pasta was poorly cooked. No exaggeration we left after dinner and went to another restaurant in RTC.

    Waitress we had was not the best, could not really explain some the dishes or pronounce things correctly to help us in ordering our food. In general have had better Italian food in Northern Virginia. Surprised how empty the restaurant was for a Saturday night.

    When a glass of rose was requested, we were informed they were out. They were also out of other choices: all Chardonnays and Pinot Grigio. Very disappointed in this wine selection!

    North Italia in Reston is clearly short-staffed. Our poor waiter was running around like crazy trying to service many diners. I ordered a second glass of wine that never came from a manager who walked by. The waiter very kindly removed it from the final bill, but I just felt bad for him. In addition, the dining room was very warm and very loud in terms of clanging and banging from the open kitchen.

    not very Italian in the food department. Bread was great, sauce was watery and not enough, drinks were okay. Reluctant to go there but it was the only Italian restaurant within walking distance. Nice outside eating.

    The original waiter was extremely rude and threw a fit because he was asked to wear a mask. The manager was lovely and found us a very nice waiter. With the ever rising Covid you would think people would be careful where food is concerned. The food here is good and prices are reasonable.

    We dined on their outdoor deck under sparkling lights and a "forest" canopy. As usual, the food was flavorful and the service sketchy. But they were apologetic. We always come back!

    The AC was broken, the service was horrible. Appetizer and salad were good. Branzino was okay. Squid ink pasta was tasteless. A bit spicy, but the seafood was overcooked and the noodles were mealy and lacked flavor.

    Appetizers were delicious. Entrees: Grilled Branzino was over cooked. Short rib was excellent but vegetables undercooked or overcooked. Two pasta dishes were excellent. No draft beer on tap and very limited selection in cans/bottles. Malbec was flat with no flavor and other wines extremely expensive. Restaurant has great potential, but needs to pay attention to some of these smaller details.

    Nice food and drink menu and very good service, but some dishes disappoint: subpar calamari and overly salty crabcake benedict. Not a great value. My roasted salmon dish was delicious, and so were the aperol-based cocktails. Dining room ambiance is fine - not a white-tablecloth spot, but not noisy considering its wide openness. May try it again sometime but not at the top of my list. Underwhelmed.

    I love this ownership group and have been to NoRTH all over the country. Still very good overall. The server was inexperienced and not well trained - he didn't offer a second beverage, placed our check on the table while we were only half-way through our entrees (he asked if we were going to have dessert after our first couple of bites of the entree), and ran his fingers through his hair incessantly. A food & beverage no-no for the germs it can spread. His teammates consistently delivered our food and drinks incorrectly at the table. As a hospitality professional, my guess is that he input the wrong seat numbers on the ticket, yet he blamed the others, which is disappointing. He WAS kind, friendly, and helpful - just missing the finer points of service that some of us still enjoy. Service was still timely overall also and greeters were prompt and provided a nice greeting and farewell. Over the years, I've noticed that NoRTH's music volume has reached a peak level, which makes it difficult to have a conversation with the people you are dining with. A little disappointing. Perhaps there is a way to have two different levels of noise for those looking for something lively and those wishing to dine and enjoy their company. At any rate, I'll still go to NoRTH, but not near as frequently as I used to - which was close to 1-2 times/week. And I guess I'll go if I don't care to hear the people I'm dining with when they speak.

    The food was very good. We had reservations for 7:00 and the table was ready as I had hoped it would be. The water was very attentive but not aggressive or distracting at all. I live in the Signature so it is very handy and convenient. I will continue to use it as my "go to" restaurant in the town center.
