North Italia – Austin Ratings and Reviews
We ate on the patio, and our enjoyment of our friends' company and the excellent food was marred by the constant, unrelenting howling of the large Beagle belonging to our near table neighbors. The 2 young women were oblivious and/or unconcerned with their dog's behavior, despite meaningful looks their way by multiple table occupants.
Wow-knockout restaurant--Weve tried them all-maybe not all --However as frequenly as we eat out trying new venues we always come back to the best--the one restaurant that consistently excites and satisfy's our needs. Waitstaff is warm and friendly and engaging. Spectacular salads incredible pizzas and a great wine list.
Reservations are a must! We arrived in time for our 7:15 reservation--and the wait was an hour and a half. We've been eating at North Italia since the first week it opened and the restaurant has consistently pleased & thrilled us.
I am uncertain what the total Number of restaurants are in the Domain here in Austin! But I can assure you you won't go wrong but obtaining a reservation at North Italia.
North Italia never lets us down. The truffle cheese garlic bread is incredibly rich but soooo yummy! Excellent Italian food and my favorite wine (Skyfall) made an enjoyable evening with my beautiful wife. Even had a great latte. The only negative was the salted caramel gelato was way too salty. Overall, highly recommend. We'll be back!
I've been visiting the restaurant since it opened and it's only gotten better and more busy. I had family come in town and since this is a favorite spot of mine, I wanted to take them. Our reservation was at 8:30. That being said, we still had to wait a good 25-30 min to get seated BUT I will still go back. They took care of us. As soon as we were seated, we were greeted by our AMAZING server, Chris. The manager showed up and (on the house appetizers) started showing up with an apology for the wait. (not necessary but very much appreciated) We had a GF and a Vegan in our party and they were very accommodating. They don't cater per say but you can absolutely find something to eat and it's delicious. The food was on point and the entire experience was topped off by how great our server was. We all left happy and full.
What we ate:
Chicken parm (amazing big portion), chicken pesto pasta, GF Pig pizza and the seasonal veggie salad (veganized). I highly recommend this place but you must make a reservation in advance and ask for patio seating. Inside can be a bit loud and difficult for conversation especially in the evening and at lunch. Bonus: If you sit outside, there might be live music to enjoy and it's dog friendly.
We are regulars, but I feel the servers are not what they use to be. Also, this has turned into a bring your young children to dinner type of place now - which is sad. It use to be upscale, but we had a family with a stroller (2 children) next to us that brought along their sippy cups, Tupperware etc. As I looked around there were 2 other similar families with very young children nearby. This has ruined the ambiance for me. ;(. I guess that's why the place was rather empty for a Friday evening.
North Italia consistently delivers what it promises, and in style. I love the flavorful preparation, the urban chic vibe of the space, and the comfy booths outside. Had one of the best dates EVER here last week, and will always remember that it's North Italia that made it all work.
Food was great although it took approx 30 + minutes to get our meal. A dinner that should have taken an hour and fifteen max took just shy of 2 hours. Server wasn't very friendly and didn't really care when we asked where the food was. Been to the location in Scottsdale and had a wonderful time! Hopefully it was just a bad night for them.
I absolutely love this place and always will. I love the decor, ambiance and menu. I was slightly disappointed in my current visit when in my reservation I stated we were celebrating a birthday and it seem to have been ignored. I definitely would not recommend this place for a good birthday get together. After I talked up the homemade Tomato Butter they serve with bread in the beginning... we didn't even get any :( BUT the table next to us was given seconds on bread and butter. Great Wine list.. Lots of different types to choose from.
We returned to North on a recent Saturday night when I got a craving for their pasta Bolognese. My husband agreed that he was yearning for the short rib radiatori. We weren't disappointed! The house made pasta is delicious and the sauces are really well done. The portions are generous and we were able to take some home. We ordered the meatball appetizer which is always very good (my Italian grandmother would approve) and finished off with a delicious salted caramel budino (kind of a layered pudding, that is rich but not overwhelming). The flavors work very well, and despite our filling meal, we couldn't resist. We went early (6:15) an it was already busy but got busier as the night went on. They honored our request for a quieter table along the periphery of the restaurant. The waitstaff is great and they work together to make sure you are cared for. The hostess was also friendly and efficient. We will be back!
