Modern Italian at North Italia

We know that an afternoon of shopping can really work up an appetite! If you’re browsing the wares at the Domain in North Austin when hunger strikes, you’re in luck because North Italia is close by and ready to satisfy.

North Italia goes the extra mile by offering a menu of dishes created in house from scratch. If you’re dining with a group, you might like to start by sharing some small plates like the Grilled Cauliflower (featuring a fried egg, baby asparagus, toasted breadcrumbs, pancetta cream, and lemon) or the Grilled Artichoke (with sea salt, truffle, grana padano cheese, and lemon aioli).

You’ll find a wonderful selection of classic pasta dishes like the Spaghetti and Meatballs or Bolognese. If you normally avoid the guilt of pasta, North also offers gluten-free options.

Their pizzas can be cut to about six slices, perfect for splitting between two people. Our favorites are the meat heavy Pig (topped with spicy pepperoni, soppressata, and Italian sausage) and the Prosciutto (topped with mission fig, goat cheese, and arugula).

During our visit, we chose the Atlantic Salmon (served with brown butter squash, fregula, and horseradish gremolata) off the Mains section. If you’re looking for something substantial but a little lighter, you might prefer one of these dishes.

For lunchtime, the menu condenses pasta and main dishes and adds sandwiches to its offerings. Once you've wrapped up your meal, you might want to squeeze in a dessert and a coffee. During our visit we noshed on the decadent Dark Chocolate Tart topped with nutella mousse and pieces of pecan toffee.

The Dark Chocolate Tart is delicious but extremely decadent.

You’ll easily forget you’re at this open air mall due to North Italia's modern industrial design. The exposed brick walls and glowing pendant lights set a romantic urban mood. The patio offers plenty of outdoor seating and views of a courtyard shared with other restaurants.

North Italia offers one of the Domain's many busy dining scenes.

One of the restaurant’s focal points is the bar set up which offers a great selection of beer, wine, and Italian themed cocktails. If you just want a short break from shopping you can stop in during happy hour Monday- Friday where they have drink and food specials from 3pm to 6pm.
