    Perhaps our biggest issue was expectations. It was recommended by friends who definitely dine at many Houston are restaurants, and their reviews are typically spot on. We were expecting a romantic Italian fine dining experience, and came away feeling it was more of a casual big chain experience. Our service was excellent, and Will did a great job dealing with my spouse’s food allergies ! The food was typical Italian fare, and the menu wasn’t very daring. It was done well, and the ingredients were mostly fresh. The bruschetta was a bit too dry and crunchy, cutting one of our gums as we ate it. It was a bit pricey for what we ordered, but not not outrageously so especially considering the venue. Nice place for a date or to take someone you are trying to impress (valet parking etc) especially if you don’t want to hear everything they are saying (energetic noise levels), but definitely not a romantic evening having a deep conversation. Back to expectations. If we went in expecting Bennigan’s, we would have been impressed. Expecting Cheesecake Factory, spot on! But we weren’t.

    Food was pretty good, but the seating was abysmal. A two person table was about the size of a kids desk and they had you jam packed next to as many tiny tables as they could. Complete waste to make a reservation if they just jam you into the worst possible seating. Our waiter lost interest after we requested to move. Just not a very good experience at all.

    Greet experience for a birthday celebration! Our server was spectacular and made the best recommendations! The cocktails and food were all perfect and ALL of the staff were so kind and loving. We attend this restaurant for every special occasion and are never let down. The ONLY thing I wish is they would bring back the Wagyu to their menu! Truly amazing every time!

    The bloom is off this rose. Used to be a great place with some dependable dishes. The arancini was room temp, the bolognese was underseasoned and the pasta was over cooked. The food was just OK, but at those prices for pasta, just OK isn't going to cut it. The grilled branzino was the sole bright spot for the evening. It was delicious. Also, on the general houskeeping front, the bathroom looked as if it hadn't been attended to all evening as the traschan was overflowinf with paper towels.

    My meal was fine but my husband said his was unremarkable. It is very, very loud to the point of giving one a headache. We cult wait to get out of there. Our server was nice and attentive. She did her job well. Due to the noise level, we will not be returning.

    Caught the tail end of the regular lunch hour, which was regular conversation / noise levels. Our party had the arugula and avocado salad, seasonal mushroom pizza, and the roasted salmon. New Italian spritz for a drink & finished off with an affogato - awesome as usual. A bit on the chilly side where we were in the restaurant - nearby the kitchen space; otherwise a nice experience as usual.

    North Italia has always been one of my favorite restaurants to go to when it comes to celebrations and overall dining. I have been a loyal customer to North since I’ve known about it which has been several years now. I can truly say that overall North is not the same and every visit I am a little saddened. To start I called to adjust headcount for my reservation celebrating my 31st birthday, to increase from 4 to 6. The host told me that a manager would call me back within the day to see if they could make that happen. The manager did not call me back and my reservation was Tuesday the 15th. My party ended up only being three which worked out and we ended up being sat by the server station. I have worked in the industry for eight years and I know how these things go. I did not make a fuss about my table because the rest of my party was fine with sitting there. My waitress was kind however seemed to be in a rush, I understand because she had a full section at the time. We placed our orders and the food took a good while to come out and when it did it was cold. I had to send my pizza back and my guest did not receive her pasta. I ended up waiting another 20 to 30 minutes for my new pizza and by then my guests had already finished their food. The waitress came back and asked if a manager had came by and I said no she had not. After I had received my pizza and was halfway through eating it the manager stopped by and offered to take care of desserts, which was nice. Not once during the whole entire meal did the server or manager acknowledge my birthday not that I was looking for it but it would’ve been nice since they do ask what are you celebrating in the booking section.

    It was crowded and noisy. My friend and I had to repeat ourselves multiple times. Service was bad - it consisted of rushed drive-bys and was poorly timed. We received our appetizers before the waiter showed up to take our dinner orders, which made for a crowded table. The waiter was either trying to rush us out or timing his stops at our table for his convenience, rather than ours. The bread spent too long under the Salamander. The top of the stack was burned and hard. The truffle butter was off in some fashion. The fish and vegetables were well-cooked and the tiramisu was average. North Italia is off my list. It's too much of a conveyer belt.

    Not the best showing by North Italia. We were celebrating my daughter’s bday. We ordered an appetizer when the waiter first greeted us….it took over 25 min to receive it (after asking twice about it) and it was almost inedible. It also came AFTER a salad and like 2 min before our dinners. My daughter was served raw chicken on top of her pasta and my chicken parm entree was cold. We did speak to the manager (mostly because my daughter wasn’t eating raw chicken) and they did remove the inedible appetizer from our bill, which we appreciated. North Italia is our family’s fav restaurant (which is why we chose to go there to celebrate a bday) but this visit was very disappointing.

    Food and service were amazing. Spicy Rigatoni is really spicy - asked the waitress to bring out some extra white sauce to tone it down and WOW!!! AMAZING!!! Hubby had the Chicken Parm. Said it was Fantastic. Huge portion! We were too full for dessert. Next time we will share a plate with a salad and get dessert 🙌🏻

    We had a 730 reservation to which we asked to sit outside for. It was pretty nice, there was only one server for our entire section outside so the service was somewhat slow but, understandably it was the only server so he did his best to take care of us. The food and the drinks were good, as well as the dessert he offered to us on the house! Would definitely dine here again.
