We ate at Nostrana on a Monday night at about 8pm and every table was full. The ambiance is pretty casual with an open atmosphere, but it wasn't too noisy - we were able to have a normal conversation and hear each other. The food...More

Bottom line: everything we ate at Nostrana was excellent! It’s a bustling place, with a fairly large room and lots of crowd noise. But in spite of a good sized room, the food was prepared with real care. The quality was much better than you...More

Our daughter's friends had highly recommended Nostrana, so we dined there while visiting her in Portland. Her friends were right - our appetizers, salad, and entrees were all beautifully presented and flavored and cooked to perfection. These included: beet cured salmon, insalata Nostrana, crab meat...More

Recommended by our neighbors. We were not disappointed. We had reservations, which I believe are necessary. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. My husband had the chicken, and it was perfect. Great wine list, but a lot of the wines are very pricey.

The bread and service!!! Wow. I got the margarita pizza and it was good, but the bread was the show stopper.

Nice atmosphere. Good food. The pizza margherita was good, but I’ve had better. Wine list has good selections. The gnocchi one of our group had were prob the best meal. Good, but a little pricey ... not sensational.

Nostrana—literally 'ours' —invokes local. Simple food from honest ingredients. Pure. Regional. Italian. Opened in 2005, Nostrana is Chef/Owner Cathy Whims' love letter to Italy. This is a restaurant built on relationships: with our amazing farmers and purveyors, our dedicated staff, and of course with you, our guest. We hope to offer something timeless and authentic in a beautiful space, the regional specialties of Italy deeply rooted in the Pacific Northwest. We strive to be better every day.
