Pizza - great! Main courses - great! Appetizers - just ok. Burrata was dry. Short rib polenta was over cooked.

Very nice day to wonderful food.
The cocktails were out of this world for me. The mezcal one was my go to. The fried calamari was ok. But then the Bronzino along with the Wagyu skirt steak were just mouth watering. Service was impeccable.

100% recommend for date night, girls night-out and family gatherings. The food is wonderful and the servers are super friendly. They always seem to be knowledgeable on which menu items you'd enjoy based on your preferences. Tiramisu is a must.

Great location with ample amount of parking on the street right in front of the restaurant. Easy service with reservations. Went during restaurant week and I enjoyed the menu! Got the meatballs, braised short ribs and tiramisu for dessert.

The Braised short rib was so good I had to ask to meet the chef behind the dish and they actually let me meet him, so that was an awesome experience.

Forgot the waitress name but she was awesome too with her service.

I will definitively be back to North Italia!

This was my first experience at North Italia. The entire team is great. The manager on duty (C. Staten) was great and very helpful. Our waitress was also great. She knew the menu and really helped us make great decisions.

I’ve already been back 2x!

I will tell all my contacts and colleagues - this place is a must visit!

An extremely enjoyable experience. We went for D.C.'s restaurant week and will certainly be returning. The salted caramel dessert was possibly one of the best things I have ever had the pleasure of consuming.

The staff were friendly and very accommodating. I wish there were healthier choices on the menu, though (such as more whole grains and dishes with legumes).

Given it is January 2021, still in COVID and can't eat inside so we are eating outside in the cold - the food was absolutely worth eating with gloves on!!

Everything was excellent! Food and service were great! Such an amazing menu, I cannot wait to go back and try more! We had the Arincini, Cacio y Pepe pizza and the Bolognese. Dessert was Butter Cake with lemon creme and blueberry preserves.

They also do a great job of social distancing and checking in on the tables regularly. Highly recommend!
