Location and contact

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.

I have been to this establishment twice now, and must say they don't all the I's and cross all the T's when it comes to amazing food and great hospitality. Albeit - it comes with a price as the food here is not cheap! However...More

All dishes were fantastic. The insalata nostrana (basically a caesar made with radicchio) was one of the best salads I've ever had. It didn't sound very appealing but I'm glad I tired it. The pizza was very good. It was made right in front of...More

My son works around the corner, but hadn't eaten there yet. When I mentioned Italian, he wanted to try this place. Fabulous! We'd been sampling Portland beer and wine (see Enzo winery review), so we had only water with dinner, but what an impressive bar...More

I love to eat out at nice restaurants, and live in a city with a lot of them (DC), so having a meal that is truly memorable means it has to be something really exceptional. That was my experience at Nostrana. I really can’t say...More

There is a reason why Nostrana is so highly regarded in Portland, and that was demonstrated to us on the evening of our 40th wedding anniversary. Although the evening got off to a disappointing start, as the staff could not find the yellow rose I...More

We found this place by chance and made a reservation for bar seating. That was so much fun. When I couldn't decide which white wine to have, our bartender/server let me try them both. I ordered the 'straw and hay' and it very good. You...More
