North Italia - Reston
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.
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.
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.
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, 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.
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.
Hi Christina, Thank you for giving us a great review. Please say hello next time you are in. We would love to meet you!
Had great service and food.. Our wait person Waad was very attentive . Very respectful of COVID requirements in inside dining!
Thank you North Italia.
Thank you for your 5 stars. We really appreciate you taking the time to share, Thanks again!
Delicious food, prompt and courteous service, and adequate COVID-19 safety measures in place. Great experience dining outside at North Italia.
Matt, Good to hear you enjoyed yourself last week! I'd love to meet you on your next visit and thank you in person. hope to see you soon.
The menu has a lot of unique and very interesting choices in every category.
All four of us loved our dishes. We all raved about the flavors, presentation and quick service. I will definitely return!
Thank you for sharing Chip! Let me know next time you are planning on joining us. I'll be sure to stop by and say hello. Thanks again!
The food and service were spectacular! Thank you for reopening.

We ate outside and it was wonderful. The hamburger was excellent cooked to perfection and the fries were outstanding.

I am sooo mad at myself for not trying this restaurant sooner!!! Wonderful service, delicious food and fantastic cocktails!!!
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.
Hi Restonlady, I am so happy we could provide a great salad and dessert on our patio! Your feedback is very much appreciated. Please say hello next time you are in. We would love to meet you. JD Russell General Manager
Great patio and social distanced outdoor dining!
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!
Great food and friendly service in a comfortable setting.
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
Food and service -exceptional. The pasta is extremely fresh & you must order the burrata appetizer.
Excellent gluten free pasta colognes.
This was my family’s first dining experience at North Italia and we thoroughly enjoyed! The service and food was excellent. Our server, TJ, was awesome! Will be back!
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.
Service is atrocious, slow and inattentive (manager nowhere to be found). Food is really good but not worth dealing with the service.
Our server and the managers who checked in with us were delightful. Our food was delicious. And we loved the wine we chose. Great dinner night with friends!
We all ordered very different items, and 4 of us were finished long before the pizza for the other 2 in our party arrived. It was not well-planned! Our waitress showed no interest!
Amazing food and service in a beautiful setting. Excellent wine list. I would recommend this place to anyone. Will definitely eat here again!
