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!

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our delicious Seasonal Vegetable salads with iced tea and trio of lemon donuts for dessert. We ate outdoors due to COVID-19 on an extremely hot day. Looking forward to feeling safe to dine indoors again. The food and service were outstanding.

Good option for Italian in the area. Pasta was prepared well, sauce and protein was very good. Wine selection is limited but the house red blend was good for the price. Overall, no complaints!

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.

This place was wonderful... Food tasted great: we had the salmon and squid ink pasta dish with budino dessert. We had the black apple Manhattan, sangria and apricot limonato. Drinks were nice and strong. Dessert was delicious and service was perfect. Definitely recommend this place for a romantic night and well with the money

Noisy, lively, seems like it's always busy. Small menu. I'm not sure why this new restaurant is so popular. I don't have much to say about it. It's not bad, but left me somewhat underwhelmed.

Wasn’t too loud on a Monday night because it was not too crowded. I fear a weekend night might be much too loud.
For some strange reason restaurants think they must me very loud to be successful.
There are actually people in this world who like to be able to speak to each other. Texting to communicate with your dinner partners is absurd.

I received a call from the restaurant about an hour before my 11 am reservation to inform me that something had happened and that Northern Italia would not be able to open on Sunday March 1. It was most unfortunate since I had arranged to have brunch with another couple that Sunday morning. The cancellation by the restaurant on such short notice left me scrambling to find and make arrangements to meet at another restaurant. The caller did not explain what had happened and made an apology with an offer to book another day.

I think the prices for a glass of wine is too high, especially since it is only 8 oz. most restaurants offer 9 oz.

Food is good, not great. The "Bread and good olive oil" is simply toasted bread. Mussels appetizer was tasty. Strozzapreti was very good, though rich. Service was mediocre and rushed: asking us how the food was immediately after it was brought, before we tasted it; bringing the check within minutes of finishing eating.

North Italia is good but it can be overpriced. The dishes are large so if you share that makes it more reasonable. We had an odd situation where portion sized in Reston were significantly smaller than Tysons and when we questioned it the manager didn't really seem like it was an issue. We didn't need anymore food but just an observation especially when the entrees are so expensive.
