Outside dinning in the evening was just a wonderful atmosphere. Food was great too, had the scallops, four large ones, and dish was a great taste combination. Pizza looked so tempting we both ordered one to go. Tasted fantastic at home, and she raved about hers too. We both look forward to going there again

I have been to North Italia (NI) two times now. The food and service has exceeded my expectations both times. NI is hands down the best restaurant in the Reston Town Center. It’s one of the few places I have ever been in my entire life where the food is not just exceptional but absolutely perfect... and I mean absolutely perfect.

One waiter came late to his shift, it looked like. But for the other waiters to flat out ignore us while serving tables next to us is tells me, that the whole organization has a problem - and with it, us guests.
We'll give them a break for now until they hopefully developed from hip to welcoming.

Had a wonderful time. Our experience with dining inside was positive, we felt safe eating inside and could see the restaurant being sanitized and cleaned. My friend and I shared our food. Started out with the burrata small plate. Delicious! Then, we split the Italian grinder sandwich with the potato wedges and then we enjoyed the funghi pizza and added fresh slices of prosciutto! Everything was so good. We will definitely come back!

North Italia is quickly becoming one of our favorite dining spots during COVID. They have a great outdoor set up and the service is always excellent (definitely ask for Viviana, she's a great server). Food is delicious, prices are fair, and the drinks are refreshing. Highly recommend all of their pasta dishes (handmade in-house!) and their entire small plate menu.

North Italia Reston was good. They actually had HHR in the bar area at the high top tables which was nice. It wasn't very crowded and the food was good. I would say they need to update their wines on HHR as the merlot was not that good.

My party and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the Fourth of July. We ordered the Simple Salad and Arugula and Avocado Salad to start the night and found both tasty, refreshing, and appropriately sized. My entree was the Striped Bass, which contained a large (~8 oz.) portion of fish and flavorful roasted vegetables. The rest of my party enjoyed their entrees, as well.

Our server, whose name I did not catch, was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere of the restaurant, which includes an open kitchen, was fun and felt lively despite the reduced crowd due to social distancing measures. On that note, the staff appeared to take all the necessary precautions related to sanitation and preventing the spread of the virus.

In short, we cannot wait to return!

First time having a restaurant meal since pandemic declared. The most important aspect was how well the tables were separated in the area we ate. The staff was sensitive to the concern that many people have regarding dining out. This made the experience positive for my wife who has been reluctant to visit any restaurant. And to top it off the food was tasty and the presentation especially of the charcuterie board was enticing. Overall an excellent experience which will help bring restaurant dining back for us.

The outside patio next the fountain is the best dining location in Reston Town Center and now that North Italia can taken it over, it also has great food and service, as well as some well-crafted and inventive cocktails. We'll be coming back soon -- if we can get a table!

Had three charges to my card because server couldn’t figure out correct bill to run my card for. Was pretty unhappy about that. Otherwise everything was okay I guess server seemed like he meant well but didn’t pay too much attention after he realized we were only doing a few small plates and drinks.
