North Italia - Reston
This was our first visit to North Italia. We went with friends and enjoyed the evening. Although our reservation was at 5 and the restaurant was basically empty, it took over 10-15 minutes to receive our first drink order. Each food item we ordered took quite a long time to be delivered. I wasn't upset by this as we were enjoying our time together with friends. However, I could see how this would be extremely annoying if you wanted to get in and out in a normal amount of time. The waiter was great, but service was slow. The food was delicious. I ordered the flank steak, which was wonderful, but came rare when I ordered medium. Had to wait while the rest of my party finished their meals. Annoying.
Great Time at North Italia. Food was very good and you can't beat the HHR.
Food was great, table was nice and so were the staff. I would definitely go back.
Hi JenniferL, Thank you for taking the time to send a 5 star review! We are so glad you enjoyed everything. Let us know next time you plan on visiting; we would love to meet you. Thanks again!
Host at the door was so nice, our server was so friendly and professional as well. We really enjoyed our lunch.
Hi TVYS, Thank you for giving us such a glowing review. We really appreciate it! If you ever need anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks again!
First time to North Italia. And we’ll be back. Took a little longer than necessary to get our salad and bread, but not enough to detract from evening. Food was great and Jarrett was tremendous.
Go and enjoy!
That's great to hear, RockT! Thank you for the 5 stars despite the salads taking some time. Next time you are in, please say hello. We would love to meet you!
Excellent as usual. A dependable "go-to" restaurant.
Thank you, KenL! If you ever need anything at all, please don't hesistate to ask. Looking forward to your next visit!
It was nice sitting outside. Our waitress was great. The food was great. Will go again!
Thank you, Kris! So glad you enjoed our patio. Be sure to come back soon before it gets too cold!
This was our first visit, the food was superb . Our server, Amber was fun and knowledgeable. We considered our evening a great success. We will diffidently be back soon.
Thank you for sharing. We are delighted to have Amber working with us. Next time you are in, please say hello. We would love to meet you!
We ate underneath the trees and it was marvelous.
Hi Tracy, Thank you for the 5 stars! We are love our patio too. Please say hello next time you are in. I'd love to meet you.
Great Italian comfort food! We have been many times and have never been disappointed. The service is wonderful and always cheerful. You never feel rushed, but the food is always well timed. Excellent!
Hi Shelby04, Thank you for the 5 star review! If you ever need anything at all please don't hesitate to ask. Hope to see you soon.
We sat outside on a beautiful evening, great ambience and excellent food. Service was a little slow for the food to come out but I think the staff was limited so completely understandable. Will definitely go back!
Hi Amanda, Thank you for giving us 5 stars! While I'm glad you are so understanding with staffing challenges, could you let me know what time you dined with us? I just want to follow up with any issues we may have had that day and not everyone is as forgiving as you are. Next time you are in please introduce yourself. We would love to meet you. Thanks again for sharing!
the chicken parm was dried out and tasteless, but the Bolognese was excellent as always. Next time I will stick with their pasta dishes only.
We sat outside on the patio and the roar of motorcycle traffic on Market Street was disruptive.
Thank you for sharing, Lillie. I'm shocked (and sorry) that the Chicken Parmesan was dry and tasteless. What time were you in on Monday? I would like to follow up with my Chef to see where we went wrong with that dish. I would like to have you try it again, on us, next time your in the restaurant. Just ask for any manager and we will make sure you have our Chicken Parmesan perfectly prepared.
Delicious food, good service, beautiful patio. We did notice however that the trees were strung with lights that never came on after dark.
Thank you, LeslieD for the 5 stars! We are so glad you enjoyed our patio! We have been working with the landlord on the timing for the string lights. Hopefully it will be lit up for your next visit.
Had a great time, fantastic food and amazing service! Got some great recommendations from our waitress and the bar tender helped us pick a great bottle of wine 👌🏻 we’ll definitely be back soon!
Thank you, HannahC! We are so happy to hear that our service staff led you in the right in the right direction. Please introduce yourself to our managers on your next visit. We would love to meet you!
Pizza and a salad for $50 including iced tea and gratuity is rather expensive.
Thank you for sharing. If it's a great value you're looking for than check out our happy hour from 3 - 6 Monday through Friday in the bar area. We offer reduced pricing on many appetizers and pizzas. Hope to see you soon!
Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Can't ask for more! I will definitely be back.
Hi Sonny11, Thank you for the great review. If you ever need anything at all please don't hesitate to ask!
So good! Service was great. We sat outside and it was a beautiful day.
Glad you enjoyed your time with us on the patio!
Delicious and authentic italian food. Good service and lovely setting.
Hi SonyaJ, Thank you for the rave review! I am so happy we could provide you with great food and service in a beautiful atmosphere. Next time you are in, please introduce yourself. We would love to meet you.
This is the second time I've been to North Italia during social distancing times. This was my first visit dining in the dining room. We were promptly greeted by the friendly hostess and given our choice of seating. Every other booth was marked off for social distancing. Our server was exceptional and very friendly which was appreciated. Food was outstanding. Not once did we feel crowded or unsafe. The work that this group has put into incorporating social distancing measures is fantastic! I will be back again soon!
Thank you, DCgirl! Safety is definitely our top priority right now. I'm so glad we could provide great food and service while still practicing social distancing and sanitation standards. Next time you are in please say hello. We would love to meet you!
Issue with billing, and the manager was more than unhelpful. Made what could have been a good experience really bad. Won't be going back.
Thank you for taking the time to bring your poor experience to my attention. I would like to hear more about how we failed you so we can improve our guest experience. Please give me a call at 571.325.0823 and ask for JD Russell.
Server was excellent. They were very thoughtful since it was raining and we insisted on being outside. Appetizers were very good, but the pasta was only so-so, needed more flavor.
Hi Michelle, Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. Which pasta did you try? Next time you're in, let's make sure you have an amazing pasta dish. Just ask for me, JD, and we will be sure we find something that you will love.
Nice time for Happy Hour at North Italia. We ordered the Merlot for the Happy Hour and the wine is ok. For $16 I can handle it. We didn't order any food from the Happy Hour menu but what we ate was very good. The Sea Bass and the Seasonal Vegetable salad. Our server took good care of us. We had a good time.
Hi BeachDiva, Thank you for taking the time to give us 5 stars! Next time your in, try the bottle and board special. Chef Board AND a bottle of wine for $20! Hope to see you soon.
Pleasantly surprised. Food was great and the outside dining was a joy to have - this was our first restaurant visit since the pandemic, and we would not have tried going out otherwise.
Thank you BartC! If you ever need anything at all please don't hesitate to ask. Hope to see you soon.
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
Hi Tom, Thanks for the rave review! We have a new version of the scallops coming out soon that I believe is even better, but I'll let you decide. New pizzas coming soon too. I'd love to get your feedback on the new items. Next time you are in, please say hello. We look forward to meeting you!
Delicious, fresh and tasty food! Definitely be back soon!
Hi MadalenaG, Thank you for your kind words! We're so happy we could provide a fresh and tasty option for you. Let me know next time you're in NoRTh Italia Reston, I would love to say hi!
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.
Wow! Thank you, Alex. We really appreciate you taking the time to share. If you ever need anything at all don't hesitate to ask. Next time you are in please say hello. We would love to meet you!.
I love coming to North Italia! Their food is incredible and it's hard to choose which appetizer I like best. The chef also surprised us with a complimentary dessert! 5/5 recommend.
Kelsey, We are so glad you had a great experience. Thank you for sharing and recommending us on OpenTable. If you ever need anything at all, just let us know. Thanks again!
Delicious! Every salad on the menu is perfect! Great ambiance. Classy but not stuffy.
Thank you for sharing! Glad you enjoyed our selections. Hope to see you again soon.
Good food - great service! Love the decor as well.
Colleen, Thank you so much for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed our food and service and thanks for noticing the decor. we put a lot of work into creating our atmosphere. Let me know what we can do for you to make us a five star restaurant. Next time you are in, please say hello. We'd love to meet you.
Good enough. Small portions but too expensive. Good place if you are not too hungry and have extra cash to spend.
Hi Sofia, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. Sorry to hear our portions were not a great value for you. Can you share with me which items you ordered? I'd like to follow up with my chef team to see how we can make those items a better value. I look forward to hearing from you.
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.
Hi Mike, Thank you for taking the time to send us feedback. There is no excuse for staff to ignore you. That is not the hospitality we are generally known for. I'd like to get you back to give us another chance. Please make your next reservation with me so I can make sure you have an incredible experience. JD Russell General Manager 571.325.8852
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!
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such a high rating. I am also thrilled that we could make you feel safe dining with us and at the same time have a delicious meal. Thanks again!
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.
Hi Tara! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.. We love Viviana too. Please say hello next time you are in. We would love to meet you!
Great food and wonderful service. We ordered the brussel sprouts, truffle cheese bread and calamari. Everything was fantastic! I had the scallops with risotto which is one of my favorite dishes along with the chicken parm. Funghi pizza is fabulous as well! Can’t wait to go back.
Thank you LeesburgShopper! Scallops are one of my favorites too. Next time you are in please say hello. We would love to meet you!
Great food, great service, great cocktails
Thanks so much Stephen! i look forward to meeting you on your next visit.
Wonderful as usual!
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.
Nice but the price value compared to Jackson’s or even CLyde’s is just not there.
Thank you for taking the time to share our feedback. If there is anything we can do better to gain a 5 star from you, please let us know. If you have any specifics in the value department, we would love hear it. Thanks again!
Came here for my sister’s birthday, food was great and the service was incredible! Thank you Meghan!!
Thank you for choosing us for your sister's birthday! I'm so glad we could be a part of her special day.
Food and service were great! Loved being able to have outdoor seating.
