North Italia – Austin Ratings and Reviews
We really enjoyed the ambiance, energy and food here. The highlights were the burrata appetizer and the spaghetti and meatballs. We also has the salmon which was perfectly prepared but not as flavorful as the pasta dish. Even though the zucca chips come highly recommended we found them to be bland and ours were over fried. It would have been nice to have a dipping sauce accompany the chips... We look forward to visiting again in the near future!
Had a fantastic meal while visiting Austin. Have also dined at the location in Houston on two occasions and enjoyed the restaurant. The Prosciutto Bruschetta was amazing. I highly recommend the Grilled Bronzino. My teenage son declared the Margherita Pizza to be the best he had ever had. The group also tried the Salted Caramel Budino which was amazing. Service was attentive. We will definitely be back when in Austin or Houston.
We had a reservation and waited almost 20 minutes before the waiter came to see if we wanted a drink. Another 15 before we had water. Once the salad came - had to ask for salt and pepper - none on the table. Then, no bread ! Another wait! Other tables had bread, but we had to ask for ours. Service was sooo slow. We were there 2 hours for dinner. We had several wait staff - one bringing the water, one serving the bread, one for the food, one to refill our glasses. I noticed, right away, that one of the managers was walking around with his IPAD, looking at our plates and at us....He did that about 6 times withing about 15 minutes. I stopped him to ask him what he was doing - he replied, "I am seeing if we have empty tables so that I can tell the hostess" . I told him that it was very irritating to me to have him watch me eat and wait for my table to be empty. He said NOTHING. About 15 minutes later, I saw that he was replaced with a young girl who was doing the same thing. I do not think we will return . There are so many other restaurants you can choose from - why go here? And, the staff in general , was not friendly at all. The only good part of the evening was that the food was outstanding. But, not worth the hassle of the staff - other good restaurants are around the area.
Had great experiences in the past, just tonight when it really counted had big trouble with the service. Greeted 10min after being seated. Then different people kept coming to the table for different sections of our order. No one came after the mains came to the table. We we're basically handed off to many times and the special request I made for our anniversary was ignored 😢. Josh our server (only spoke to him once) really let us down on a special night. Pasta was partially under cooked as well but I couldn't tell anyone.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary. The food was amazing ! Our daughter joined us and she said the spaghetti and meatballs dish was the best pasta she has ever had . This was our first time to dine here but we will. Be back ! I ordered the branzino and it was the best fish that I have ever had! Service was also outstanding .
Love North! Always great food and typically service is great too... was a little disappointed this last visit. I had a reservation, seating staff was rude - dropped seating us to help a party who barged up and interrupted - I had asked for a table inside but the staff was rude about declining and sat us outside (even though there were multiple open tables inside), we got a crammed table outside between two other tables but our waitress made up for it and was excellent!
We came to North for my birthday celebration in the middle of the week. I'm glad we had an early reservation as it got very busy very quickly! The place is really noisy, but it doesn't really deter from the friendly and inviting atmosphere. The hosts and servers are just great and they all work together to make you feel taken care of. We both enjoyed our pasta dishes. I always get the bolognese, a specialty of the house, and I'm never disappointed. My husband's short-rib radiatore was also a big hit. Everything came out hot and delicious, and the made-in-house pastas are particularly good. We started with the arancini (rice balls) and really enjoyed them, reminiscent of having them when I visited Sicily. The salty caramel desert we had may have been overkill, considering how full we were, but it is always the perfect end to the meal!
The food was great. We had the scallops and branzino Mothers Day Brunch specials, the Salmon entry and grilled cheese for the 12 and under group. It was all delicious. The bread is wonderful. Everybody was pleased. But, it was very, very loud. We will go back on a less busy time.
Disappointed that with a reservation I was forced to sit outside. Gave in as I was with my family and suffered due to my allergies and the fans blowing everything around. Had been there before at this location and had not had this issue. Had great experiences at North in multiple locations in AZ; however, don't think I'll be back as they refused to accommodate me and made me feel it was my fault that I didn't specify inside seating. Thank goodness my server was good.
We went to North Italia for my birthday and it was incredible! The food was amazing and one of the best Italian restaurants in Austin- the pizza was delicious, soft and savory! The wine list is awesome and the Sicilian margarita was a favorite!! The white truffle garlic bread was AMAZING! We enjoyed every portion of our meals and it was a pleasant experience! Can't wait to go again!
We had a wonderful experience here. The service was great, the food was phenomenal, and we are excited to come back!
We also had a military service member with us who was on leave from his deployment in Turkey, and our waitress went above and beyond with her service to show her appreciation.
