North Italia - Reston
Food and restaurant were great. I highly recommend it for date night. It would be great if they would split the check out when it’s a bigger group.
the quality of food and service is very high. i love coming here
Good food; noisy
I found North Italia to be a disappointment. Looking at our other options in the Reston area, North Italia was mediocre at best.
My biggest complaints are with the lack of customer service starting with the hostess, going through to the server. We were treated unprofessionally when checking in, the server did not listen to our requests, and then to top, she ignored my request for a candle in my sister in laws dessert, which was the reason we were there. The food was pricey for what it was, the quality was no better than Maggianos at twice the cost.
It was very loud, and poorly laid out. There was no where to put you coats, which didn't matter since were we were seated became extremely cold every time the door opened. When we asked to be re-seated we were told that we would need to wait another hour for a table to open up.
Thankfully we have other choices.
This was the 4-5 times my husband and I came to dine here. This time the server was terrible, slow service. He gave us the wrong bill before even asking if we wanted dessert or coffee. We ordered 2 coffee and he forgot to bring them. We just didn’t want them anymore. The night was a total service disaster.
Would recommend, but with caveats. Waitstaff were very nice, but the service was ridiculously slow. Mixed drinks were bad. Food was quite good once it arrive...decent presentation, nice portions etc. Wine selection was okay. A decent-enough place, but would not make it a destination. Was with good friends and left feeling fine, but nobody was wow'ed by any means. My first trip, a few months ago, was far better in every respect. Maybe just an off night?
Unreal quality of food and flavors. Handmade pasta, fresh and flavorful sauces, great culinary execution. This is a gem that I hope sticks around in Reston Town Center. Attentive, friendly staff.
Good happy hour but it fills up really fast -- getting a table and sitting in the restaurant has a better ambience than the bar anyways in my opinion. Delicious! Friendly people
Server was super, from Northern Italy, per her name was Valerie? Great service.
What a great find! The food was very flavorful. I also am grateful to a place that will do half portions on request. Try the outstanding bolognese pasta.
Ambience was nice, service was good, food not so good. Felt it was bland and for $19 torteloni not worth it. Don’t mind paying for something if it is really good, but this was not. My friend got the Bolognese and felt the same way.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience at North Italia. The food was superb and our waitress was friendly and responsive. Thank you so much! We will be back!
North Italia is my ‘Go To’ spot for delicious Italian food. The food, ambiance and service surpasses my expectations each and every time. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great food, great people and a great time! I always leave with my tummy full and a smile on my face!
Two of us got ill. Food was NOT fresh. Fish ("sea bass") was poor quality. Slow service. Extremely hot in the restaurant.
The food was amazing and our server was great also.
So, while the food was good, I didn't find that the menu was particularly Italian. Sure, pizza is Italian, but Italy has so much more to offer.
I did find that the service was haphazard. By that, I mean that I was served by 5 different people and, therefore, nobody really knew who I was or when to come by to ask how things were going. I would have ordered a second drink, but I was well finished with my meal before somebody came by to ask. Or for that matter, I wasn't asked when my meal was served if I wanted anything else.
In short, while the food was good, there are better places in Reston.
Went for my wife’s birthday. The food was great. No complaints at all.
This is the second time I have eaten at North Italia and it was just as delicious as the first. But what I have enjoyed the most is that the servers have both been extremely pleasant and cheerful and seemed genuinely interested in us having a good time.
Waitress never brought water or asked about wine when I told her we wanted to order some. Was my daughters birthday and would have liked a candle or something. She ignored that thought even though I mentioned it all evening. Then she didn’t bring a drink we also ordered until we were done with our meal. She never asked about coffee with dessert also. Food server complained about serving the food.
Love the food but need work on the service. Those around us served by the same waitress got all the service
Overpriced and underdelivered. Did not have what was supposed to be a fixed New Year’s Eve dinner.etc.. Spent over$170 dollars. Wendy’s value menu would have sufficed.
Had a price fix New Years eve dinner. The food was very good Service could have been better.
this was a good night for us. Thank you. The value was a light high. We ended up spending $460 for dinner and drinks for four.
I would have preferred to know ahead of time that the New Year's Eve menu was price fixe. The price of $60 per person was reasonable. The food was good and the servce was prompt. The limited choice of desserts was not within my tastes.
North Italia, you guys rock. Lovely, gracious, good-humored service...food that is made with love... lots of healthy light options, but if you need to get your comfort food on, hell they've got ya. Incredibly creative, balanced cockails. Really accomodating if you want a certain seat, and lots of types of seating options... bar, high table, comfortable booths, big-party long tables... I love 'em. And honey, them bathrooms is SPOTLESS. Good work N. I. You make me happy.
North Italia is a welcome addition to Reston dining options. Interesting food, warm ambiance, good service. We’ll be back!
I will say we sat in the bar area waiting for a table, and the hostess forgot about us, but aside from that everything was amazing!!
A bit pricey but the food was excellent. Server forgot our bread but other than that was amazjng
Great food ! Server was wonderful. Ambience perfection.
First time experience was great and waitress made the experience excellent
Quality food with great service. Will return
We went for Christmas Eve dinner and enjoyed the meal. Service was great as was the food.
Food was good.
Service spoiled the evening. Slow, mistakes and final bill errors. Waiter was nice but obviously management put him on the floor way to early. Service will mill this restaurant if they don’t fix it. Second visit.
Food was delicious and ambience was very nice except that the restaurant was freezing! Please turn up the heat!
We've been to North Italia for dinner several times, but this was our first brunch. North Italia is rapidly becoming our go-to place for a good meal, an enjoyable dining experience.
I’ve eaten here a few times and was impressed w/the service for both occasions. The freshly made pasta was very good and love the cocktail menu. This will be a new regular spot for us.
North Italia was great! The bread and olive oil was super light, airy, and tasty. Pasta was delicious. Short Rib pasta is a must. Everything is very fairly priced too. Must check this place out.
Food was awesome, service was good. I think we had someone new. Timing of items to the table was off. Example we were 1/2 done with our pasta before we were offered cheese to go on top of the pasta and the cheese came in a condiment container pre ground. The pasta and appetizer was again outstanding, we will be back!!
Thanks to our exceptional server Viviana, we enjoyed a delicious dinner with our friends. The food, setting and service were all excellent and we would definitely return. Viviana was absolutely outstanding, keeping drinks filled, clearing plates and getting us whatever we needed. She managed several tables besides ours too!
Don’t miss that white truffle garlic bread and the calamari! What a great place. RIP Paolo’s!
Great server, relaxed evening, good location.
