It was amazing the food was delicious and the server was very attentive and nice and worked with us to describe what was on the dishes and dessert .
Best kept secret. Service and food was great! Make sure you order the butter cake for dessert! I'll be returning soon!
Our first time at North Italia and it was amazing! Already planning a trip back!
Food and service was great! The servers were very attentive and a very relaxed atmosphere.
Service, staff, and environment was great. Food was disappointing, overly salty and portions were small for the cost and in comparison to other similar locations, the value for is not worth it.
Great service, close to GWHospital, large portions. Great basic Italian food
Amazing service, great food and ambiance. Waiter extremely attentive and friendly, great quality in the food and was served very quick.
The food was delicious and the service was great. We'll definitely be back.
fish dishes were good, but short rib and pasta was disappointing. Meat was very dry and well done.
nice atmosphere--not crowded
A contemporary decorated restaurant with a warm atmosphere, friendly knowledgeable staff and great food. We had dinner there before going to the Kennedy Center on Jan 2, 2022.
Will definitely go again. Pleasant for 2 but could accommodate a large group dinner.
Great service, beautiful food. A great italian restaurant to have in DC!
The food was good and the ambiance was nice, but the service was lacking. He was very slow, forgot to bring my tea, and when reminded he brought caffeinated tea instead of the decaf I asked for. They were out of decaf tea so o got a decaf latte instead which took forever to come.
A reliable choice it seems. Well managed, attractive, slid service, and good food. Will be back definitely.
Excellent food and drinks but our service from the bar was a bit slow. We could see our order sitting but our server didn't bring them. Finally the host ended up grabbing them. At the end of the meal we considered dessert but were a little pressed for time. We decided not to risk it given the drink delivery. Despite the glitch we will probably be back.
Wonderful restaurant not far from Kennedy Center. We had the roasted vegetables, cioppino and pizza. Everything was fantastic!
A modern layout with a diverse menu!
Went for their New Year’s Eve Special menu. This was my wife and it’s first time at North Italia and we were more than impressed. Hands down the best Italian food I’ve ever had. Service was perfect, I appreciate when the staff uses a light hand and isn’t overbearing. The food was WELL WORTH the price. Go. You will not be disappointed.
Visited with 2 adult children and my wife on 12/30/2021. Each person had a different dish and everyone gave their dish at least 8.5/10 on an unofficial scale. Service was very good. Had 1 meal mini mix-up which was immediately rectified. Would certainly recommend
Excellent restaurant with outstanding food and service. The diver scallops were cooked perfectly and the pasta dishes and pizzas enjoyed by the rest of our party were all wonderful.
Restaurant was half filled, as dinning early on a Thursday night. Food was good and staff are very efficient.
We had such a great experience! Highly recommend the truffle garlic bread
Delicious food and great service!
Always great food and very accommodating.
Just a mediocre meal that was not worth the price. Our server was friendly but very slow.
Our evening visit to the Foggy Bottom outlet of this restaurant did not disappoint. The staff worked beautifully as a team to manage the patrons (clearly understaffed bc of Covid). Everyone was incredibly nice and accommodating. Food -- margherita pizza, strozzapreti, anolini -- all were well flavored and portioned for a filling but not overstuffed meal.
North Italia was fine and close enough to Kennedy Center for dinner before a show. Happy hour prices were somewhat deceptive in that only house wines were discounted.
Delicious food and great service.
Food was so good!! Server Rashad was most attentive and so accommodating. He was an absolute pleasure and we really enjoyed our lunch. Thanks so much Rashad!!!
Great food, great service, great value for money. What else could one ask for? We stopped by North Italia for brunch before a concert at the Kennedy Center and appreciated the quick service, and excellent food. Lots of good vegetarian and vegan options too (also, be sure to try their sangria!).
I visit this restaurant everytime I visit DC. Service and ambience was meh.
Some staff were NOT MASKED, which is totally irresponsible given the new and virulent COVID-19 Omicron variant. In addition, our dishes, which were supposed to be hot, were barely warm. Suggest staying away until the restaurant initiates a responsible anti-COVID policy and trains staff in the new rules. A shocking ignorance of health protocols and lack of regard for the health of its patrons.
Very nice experience! Our waiter was really good, Burrata cheese appetizer was outstanding. Kale salad salmon was fantastic. Bolognese pasta also very good. Portions were a bit small for the price paid, but quality was outstanding.
North always has great food and service!
We’ve eaten at the one in Austin at The Domain for years. Always stellar experience
Service was great yesterday. It is not always so good.
The food was so heavily salted I had to return it. Very unhealthy menu. Service was very good. The bolognese was delicious but my diver scallops were awful. Polenta was too salty and mushy. I would never return
great menu options, food tasted great. Best service we've experienced in a restaurant in quite a while.
Great service and great food!
Erica was amazing she always checked on me to see how my food was and if I wanted anything else. The cheese board was amazing and so was the branzino
Birthday dinner so good only down side they began closing as we finished so we were not offered dessert
Unfortunately, North Italia had tons of waiters and waitresses plus "managers-hostess), but service was awful. Our waiter would disappear for long period of times; he was also doing as a bartender and conversing with individuals at the bar like he was just tending the Bar. Also, most of those working the floor spent lots of time in the kitchen drinking coffee or water, but not working the floor. Lots of people for such a poor service attending. Runner bringing food wouldn't ask whether the orders were good or ask any questions - he woudl just put the plates on the table and leave. Waiter no where to find him. We requested extra cheese in the pizza (didn't happen).
North Italia has always done better - hope DC can match the service in Tysons
