This place gets busy fast. We walked in the door right at 5 on a Thursday, and a few minutes later the place was already getting pretty packed. The food is amazing - excellent portions, great flavours, and the bread... oh god the bread! Friendly and attentive service to boot. A little pricey, but well worth it.

This was a last-minute late dinner and we were pleased to find many new menu items (we're semi-regulars). The gnocchi, potato gatto, spinach, and tuna-bean salad were winners. The negroni selection is unbeatable (I'm particularly fond of the Quintessential), ditto the amari. Knowledgeable staff (Lia knows the wines), don't skip dessert (liquid, solid, or both)

Apparently Nostrana has been around for some time. How I missed it all this time I don't know. But glad I discovered it. This has to be one of the tops in Portland. The food is outstanding - sort of a contemporary take on your favorite Italian dishes. The radicchio caesar was out of this world and honestly so were... More

Just had lunch today and the pasta was fabulous. Pappardelle pasta with goat cheese was amazing.. my friend had the crab pizza which again was fantastic.. Almond cheese cake was one of the best cheesecake I have ever had.

Four of us went to Nostrano around 9pm on a Friday night w/o a reservation and we were happily accommodated. We were told it might be a 20-30 minute wait and it was. While waiting we were quickly offered drinks and got 4 house wines for $20. Nostrana offers a 9pm happy hour. We also ordered a few ample nibbles... More

Cool high ceiling restaurant decor. Menu is pretty limited but seems to try to take different approaches at food. I had prawn ravioli which were awesome (I could have used a few more). My wife had gnocchi which were more two potato dumplings versus the traditional. They were not liked. Also watch out that a small bottle of coke is... More

Nostrana has been around for years and my first time there in several years left me extremely satisfied with the food, the service and the overall environment. My wife had ravioli with goat cheese which she raved about. I had scallops in blood orange sauce and a puree that was fabulous. We split an incredibly beautiful and tasty salad. The... More
