North Italia – Austin Ratings and Reviews
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!
I have been dining at North since opening at the Domain, have always been one of my favorites. The last three times we have dined, the quality has been sliding downhill and the prices have increased. Not a good ratio!
We dined for a birthday Wednesday evening that became more of a disappointment with quality of food being mediocre, a bit stressful and noise level that was insanely loud.
We enjoyed our meal and ambience however the restaurant was so hot it was uncomfortable to be eating indoor. My parents were in town visiting so I was excited to bring them to North however with the temperature that warm in the restaurant it was not enjoyable. Please turn up the AC.
North Italia never disappoints. We started with the calamari and arugula salad after seeing someone else enjoying it. The couple next to us obviously thought the same and ordered it too. It was delicious and easy to share. We also shared a vegetable salad, prosciutto, fig and goat cheese pizza, as well as their house specialty, the Bolognese. The four of us enjoyed a nice drink with our meals and left our compliments with both our server and the manager Kevin, who goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is enjoying their meal.
We went to North for our first official date. I had made reservations via OpenTable. The place was full but we were seated right on time. We sat out on the patio so noise wasn't a problem. The service was excellent: attentive but unobtrusive. The food was excellent as well. I had the Diver Scallops and she had Salmon. All in all, a perfect first-date experience!
My husband and I met another couple here for dinner. The service and food were great. The server recommended that I order the tortellini and go with a pesto sauce instead of a marinara sauce and it was outstanding. You can tell the pasta is fresh made. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner!
A favorite in Austin - and they have one in Scottsdale, AZ too. Good food and quick service. They are almost always busy so you usually need a reservation for key times. Note the bathrooms are right off the kitchen and dining area and both are labeled "Either/Or" not my favorite since the guy left with the seat up and had not flushed - ew. Perhaps North can get some nice Toto toilets that operate all those functions and self clean too! It would be a worthwhile investment. I'm not liking that experience.
Food is good but portions are very small for the price. Wine is overpriced. They put a lot of people close together, so don't expect a quiet intimate setting. It is loud in there. It didn't seem to be a very good value for what we got versus what we paid. It's OK, but there are better choices for great Italian food in Austin.
I've been here for lunch and dinner and have always enjoyed my experience. It can be a bit loud in the dining room but not overwhelmingly so. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and prompt. Our meal came out in a timely manner and was delicious (the Scallops entree is divine!). Looking forward to my next visit.
The place is pretty nice, beautifully decorated, good ambience. The service was fine. We had the bruschetta as appetizer, it was very good! My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs. The pasta was great, one can definitely taste it is handmade. The dish itself was fine, nothing extraordinary. I had the short ribs. It was really, really good! The fusilli was served with a white sauce, with a zesty taste to it that paired perfectly with the fresh arugula. So good! We were able to sit outside and it was nice because there was live music at the mall so it created a nice atmosphere. I definitely recommend and will go back!
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.
Even with a reservation, I was contacted at 3:00 for a 7:30 reservation and was told, not asked, that we were on the first available list. Upon arriving, the hostess attempted to seat us outdoors near an outdoor concert that was way too loud and not very good. I refused the table and the hostess did accommodate us indoors but in very tight quarters. It was so loud inside that my wife and I could not carry on a conversation. In regards to the food, the Zucci chips were their highlight which to me were just okay, the pitcher of Sangria tasted more like kool-aid and contained almost no fruit and the pizza was marginal at best. Overall the service was acceptable but, not stellar. Not a restaurant that I can recommend based on this first visit. We have a gift card and plan to try it again on a weekday evening for appetizers and a bottle of wine which may result in a different experience which I will post the results.
Our server was London and he was fantastic. He made great suggestions and took good care of our table. He did a great job at making it a special birthday experience for my mom.
The food was phenomenal. I've been countless times, and even the items I've tried before were better than ever.
