    We went here before seeing Hamilton—everything was perfect! Our server was attentive and knowledgeable—-and the food was spectacular. Bolognese was to die for and we shared an entree—-plenty for two. Affogato dessert is a must! We will be back!

    My fiend (guest) received the wrong salad even after he pointed to the item on the menu and the waiter double checked with him twice. He asked for Seasonal Vegetable Salad and got a Caesar Salad instead. He also brought him coffee with sugar instead of English breakfast tea with milk. My salad was correct and fine.

    North Italia DC has never disappointed. The menu choices provide something for everyone, and I always look forward to the different pizza specials (although the pizzas on the regular menu are delicious). I am partial to the appetizer meatballs which are served with polenta and the chopped chicken salad, but the pasta is and my so flavorful and my co-workers love the chicken parmesan. The service has always been courteous and prompt, but this visit, our server was exceptional.

    I came to visit my freshman daughter who is attending the George Washington University. The service was fantastic I would highly recommend making a reservation on OpenTable as soon as you know that you would like to eat here it gets packed quickly.

    This was our first visit. My brother and his wife were visiting so we wanted to try this for some fresh Italian. The cocktails were a nice size and a decent price point. The table ordered an espresso cocktail, grapefruit martini, Jack Daniel's on the rocks and a terzo of Pinot Grigio. All were well made and enjoyable. Service was very friendly. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and the sizes of the small plates. Although we originally requested a booth with our reservation we opted for a four person table by the window which was less noisy. Sitting in a booth would have made conversation without shouting difficult. For appetizers the table shared arancini, crispy calamari, grilled bread and simple salad without gorgonzola. The calamari was the star. Nice portion size, and easily shareable with a lot of lemon juice freshly squeezed. The bread was crisp with grill marks good EVO and some balsamic drizzle. A little salty but crunchy and quite tasty. The arancini was just warm. We would have sent it back but everyone took one already and tried it so we did not want to delay the delivery of our entrees. The arancini, if warmer, would have been quite good. Just a little crunch with a nice zesty red sauce. We will try again during out next visit. Next our entrees came at excellent pace. We had great service from our waitress who checked in often but not too much. Very attentive. My brother received Bolognese and substituted gluten free noodles. He loved the meaty sauce and the noodles had a nice texture and he would order it again and recommends it. My brother's wife and my spouse also ordered the regular Bolognese and loved the size and the amount of meaty sauce. They wished we had saved some bread to soak up the sauce. I ordered the chicken parmesan with parmesan rigatoni. My chicken was perfectly seasoned, pounded flat and very saucy. Nice place for a special occasion or a dinner out with visitors to DC.

    First time dining at a North Italia. A pleasant dining area and bar area. It was a weekday so the afterwork crowd was expected; vibrant but not too loud. Tried a couple of their signature cocktails. The Rosemary & Lime was good; first one not so much, which was made by the new bartender; second one was much much better. The Julietta was excellent. Started with the Prosciutto Bruschetta; perfect to have with the drinks. Ordered entrees; Braised Short Rib entrée, Excellent flavor and served with good root veggies, asperagus, polenta. Diver Scallops also very very good. Service was a bit unattentive. Had to order glass of wine to go with my entree from a different waiter as ours was no where around. The quality of the food and drinks made up for it overall. We will be dining at a North Italia again. Hope other locations are as good.

    The service was good, but the food was slightly disappointing. The zucc chips were burnt, and the arugula salad & vegetable board was very small for $18. It was just okay overall. Not sure I'd go there again.

    Most of our food ordered was really bad. The pizza looked and tasted like it was made the day before and was put back in the oven again. None of the toppings could be identified. The truffle bread was cold, oily, and extremely mushy. Again, it tasted like it was done before. The Bolognese and meatballs were average but not bad. The service was poor. Our sparkling roses arrived before another one of our drinks and we had to wait about 10 min to get the other drink, after reminding our waiter. We will not come back!

    The meatballs made me wonder if they were Sisco prepared rather than chef made in house. They were also cold when delivered to the table. The Polenta was soupy rather than properly thick & creamy. The Arancini was good. They added a charge for special water but we had gotten tap water. Wait staff was very kind & attentive.

    We ate outside and had a great time! Great service and food definitely a pricier/nicer meal but if you split a pizza and bottle of wine between two people there’s definitely a way to do it for cheaper. The squid ink pasta and cacio e Pepe were delicious! My only critique is that I wish I had gotten more pasta in my serving but for such high-quality ingredients at a reasonable price I can understand the portion. Additionally I put the noise rating at pretty high sense in the short time between checking in and going to our outdoor seating I noticed it was pretty noisy indoors. Granted it was a Friday night and I have sensory issues regarding sound. So if you’re fine with the sound it’s probably OK but if you’re like me ask to sit outside if the weather is good:).

    All in all, everything went well. The food was delicious. We had to wait initially to get served. Had to notify the hostess. It’s never comforting to sit and wonder if anybody knows you’re there. Eventually they came and very quickly took our order and got our food to us. I will go back.
