I went to Nostrana a number of years ago and had a less than savory experience. In fact, I vowed never to go back.
Well, you know what they say about making such grand proclamations . . .
We went back to Nostrana this week and boy was I wrong. The food, the service, the atmosphere were all fantastic. I had a really wonderful meal and know with 100% certainty (because everyone told me) that my family had a great meal.
We ordered a wide assortment of items off the menu - from the various salads (the radicchio salad is the best I have ever had in Portland) to the wonderfully decadent wood oven pizza. Everything was great. What made the evening most memorable was the excellent service.
At one point during the evening, a member of our dinner party wanted a group picture. The manager himself came over to take the photo. Talk about service.
I admit it - I was wrong. We will definitely be back to Nostrana and encourage families with small children looking for a nice night out at a "foodie" restaurant to consider Nostrana as well.
