Our first time at this restaurant, and it was delightful. Sangria, rustic bread, meat and cheese board, shrimp scampi. Heavenly.

Took my MIL here for brunch and best Bloody Mary in a while. At first bite, she was very happy with her brunch dish. Not to mention, the team here is great and made the experience enjoyable. DO come here for brunch and expect to be spoiled with great service and awesome food.

Great food and great atmosphere. There were a lot of people there which made me a bit nervous but once I sat down and saw how much space there was between the tables, I felt safer.

At first I was a little disappointed that the happy hour only applied to people seated at the bar... however, we had an amazing experience and one of the best pizzas I've ever had! The pig, as it's called, was so good that we ordered another to go!

As always a great meal! Arancini appetizer always our favorite starter. The new farm salad was huge and so good. The burrata tortelloni and pasta bolognese both satisfying and delicious!

WORST WAITER/SERVICE EVER!
We drove all the way from Bethesda, while we could have easily gone to the one in Tyson , but we decided to try the one in Reston since there were no more tables available in Tyson.
Our waiter DAVID came and asked us what we wanted. He did not even ask us if it was our first time or if we had any questions, just went straight to it. "what can I get you?"
We gave him our drinks order, which already took a while before it hit our table and we started to wonder if someone was going to drop our drinks off at some point. Eventually he dropped the drinks and took our food order.
The food came in shortly after but we had no plates, no silverware, no napkins. So we waived him and told him we needed napkins. He came back with 1 plate and 1 napkin and left. So I waived at him again, and I could already tell from his body language that he was being annoyed, I nicely asked him to bring another napkin. He comes back and drop me some paper napkins for drinks and rushes away. So I waive again and ask him to bring me an actual table napkin. He looks at me and leave and then comes back and drop it on the corner of the table and leave. I thought to myself, "well, that was weird!"
So I waived at him again and I calmly ask him " Excuse me, I am sorry, but is there something I said or did that offended you??" cause his body language and behavior was so negative and unhappy I had to ask him, well, he went from 0 to 100 within seconds, and not making any sense in his conversation at all, other than telling us that he could not do his job properly because he had too many tables and basically could not multitask.
Well buddy, if you did your job right in the first place we would not have had to bother ourselves to chase you down for a napkin, moreover, if you suck this bad or having a bad day don't make the customer suffer from your incompetence and your inability to be nice to people. Fix your attitude or change job cause you are in the wrong business.

I took my son here for a guys’ night dinner after his soccer tournament. What a great experience! The food was great and reasonably priced. The staff was all very friendly and our server Meghan was top notch. Highly recommend the simple salad and the house special bolognese. My son is a pizza connoisseur and LOVED their specialty pizza The Pig. We’ll definitely be going back the next time we’re in the area!

I really enjoy dining at this restaurant. The cocktails are innovative and yummy, as are the appetizers, pizzas, entrees and amazing desserts. Well rounded. Booth dining is more enjoyable than a table in the middle of the room, so be sure to request that. Service is attentive and prices are reasonable. I have dined here at least 5 times. The only downside is that they list the calories on the menu! oops. Don't look.

Celebrated my daughters birthday... wonderful atmosphere and excellent, attentive service! Arancini appetizer was amazingly delicious, hint of smoked mozzarella... warm bread, salads and pasta all flavorful hit the spot on a cold evening. The hazelnut torta dessert was incredible, perfect end to our meal! Lovely restaurant and evening!

This was my first time having dinner here. The waiter was friendly, professional, and checked back frequently to see if we needed anything. The food was delicious. I expected the menu to feature more dishes from northern Italy (less pizza and pasta), but the selections are fine. My dining partner and I shared the arancini appetizer; it was very flavorful and sufficient for two. I had the divers scallops, which are served over risotto. The dish was rich in texture and flavor. The hazelnut torta was a fantastic ending to the meal.

Service was sketchy no one was really serving our table. We were rushed to finish the meal. Did not see folks waiting for a table. We were there around 8.30pm. Pizza was oily! Steak was served warm like it had been sitting waiting to be served for a while. Will not visit again.

First time at this location of North Italia. Equally as great as our experiences at Tysons. Celebrated Valentines Day with brunch and very much enjoyed the food, specialty beverages, service and atmosphere. Highly recommend and will surely return for another occasion.
