Nostrana Ratings and Reviews

Great food, our server Joel did a great job--appreciated his recommendations for food and wine, he was attentive and took good care of us without rushing our meal. Sat outside and was very comfortable the evening we were there. We had 8P reservations but finished our errands early. Arrived early and was able to get seated earlier. Would definitely come back again.

We have been here before and I was very disappointed. The service was poor, the charcuterie plate was unimaginative. The waitress promised coffee and did not return until I flagged her for the check.
The clam pasta was good.

This was my first visit to Nostrana. The food was amazing, the staff was helpful and nice. I was meeting someone there for a date and when I got there I was a bit shocked by the noise level. There is a single large room with a very high vaulted ceiling that lets the sound just bounce around. It was VERY loud there with all the people. The place was completely packed, I'm very glad I made a reservation. I was offered drinks while waiting for our table to be ready and after my date arrived 15 minutes early, they seated us right away which was very nice.
I could see myself going back here for a casual thing, not necessarily on a first or second date. The volume level was just too much for good, getting to know someone, conversation. There were a number of times I had to ask her to repeat herself because I just couldn't hear.
The food was AMAZING as was the wine. The best I've had, by far.

we had a great time. Ordered several salads, a couple of pizzes, some steak and peppers and created a beautiful meal to share. Plus great drinks and wine. Could not have been better. Delicious! and Fun time! Loved it.

One of the best dining experiences that we've enjoyed in many years. Fantastic beverages and wine list. The food was absolutely perfect! The dungeonus crab pizza, pasta dishes, and everything was prepared to perfection. Looking forward to our next trip to PDX and another occasion to done at Nostrana!

Great experience. Enjoyed the occasion. Special. While our first meal there we felt and were treated like regulars. We had eaten a time or two at Cathie's previous venue (Genoa) and have just been waiting for the right time to have the whole family (including 2 month old Ivy who was very well behaved - we heard another baby there who wasn't) to Nostrana. Reservations well recommended. Nothing to criticize. Looking to return ASAP. See you there!

Everything we tried was fantastic. The two of us split everything so we could try more dishes and nothing disappointed. Our expectations were very much exceeded and because of that, Nostrana has become our favorite Italian restaurant.
We tried: Insalata Nostrana, Radiatori al Ragù, Granchio Pizze, Oregon Berry Crisp & Alaretto Cheesecake. All of them I'd highly recommend.

The pizza here is amazing! I'd never actually tried anything else on the menu aside from the pizza and the occasional side salad before this visit. I had the lunch Cuban sandwich and my wife had the gorgonzola gnocchi. Both we amazing. The beer selection is limited but always top notch. The wine is a bit on the pricey side, which is unfortunate. Not even a more affordable house wine for the more casual diners. Still love this place, though, and will continue to return for special occasions and the rare late night happy hour pizza.

Very disappointing... This was our third visit and two of them have been bad. The service particularly from the hostess has been unwelcoming and that sets the stage for a bad evening. We will not return... Too many other great choices.

Nostrana is our go to place. On every level it only gets better with time. On our last visit we shared two appetizers a bean and tuna salad and their Nostrana salad. Both were wonderful.
Equally so were our pasta and river trout entrees. Service was friendly and totally professional and the check very fair given the wonderful meal. What more could one ask?

Excellent trout loved it. A little annoyed the waitress gave us the worst table, when asked to be moved she replied the other 4 tops were needed for larger groups, we were two. The table we sat at had 4 chairs as well.

Food was wonderful. Love that they have a unique menu every day. The server's level of condescension was also notable. Along with the fact that he disappeared entirely after we asked for a water refill. Lovely place with fresh, simple and delicious food though. Ours was just served with a pinch of deadpan superiority.

We sat outside in the warm sunshine and it was just wonderful. My husband had the trout with risotto cake and I had pasta. Both were delicious. The server (I never remember names) made good recommendations for both wine and food and didn't hover which was nice. All in all a very nice Father's Day. Although i have been there for lunch before, this was my first dinner and it was every bit as wonderful -- especially the radicchio salad!

Went here after hearing great things about the place, food, and pizza. The restaurant was nice but a little loud as it filled up. The service was slow. As for the food, the best thing was the soup. The salad was a bowl of lettuce with 4 different clusters of vegetables on top for $9. It wasn't very good, especially for the price. The pasta was very bland and the pizza was just okay. Better pizza for less elsewhere.
