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.

    Ben was our amazing server. He was informative, kind, funny, and truly made our experience. He communicated with the kitchen staff and provided personalized recommendations just for us. Execution was flawless. We are looking forward to returning and will be asking to sit in Ben’s section the next time we dine.

    All the staff were so upbeat and polite and treated us like we were special from the moment we walked in the door. If you have watched "The Bear", it was this kind of positive attention. The ambiance of the dining room is amazing. There are so many touches to make things special and our waiter knew everything about how the food was prepared. We had bread, Nostrana salad, delicious pizza, brisket, and dessert. All were superb, even the dark rich coffee that came with dessert. As a non-drinker it was nice that they had quality how-made juices and mocktails. Best dining experience I have had in a long time.

    My friend came in from out of town and asked where we should go for dinner, and I’m so glad that I chose a place on my list that I hadn’t been yet. I was so surprised by what a wonderful place this is!! We sat at the bar and enjoyed people watching and using the scissors to cut our pizzas into funny shapes. Really fun and enjoyable experience 💯

    All was fine including the food service. The only downside was the unexpected request by our server — backed up by an addendum to our credit card receipt — to consider augmenting the 22% service fee embedded in the bill with a further gratuity that would go exclusively to the server. She explained that the 22% fee was shared equally by the whole staff. This distinction did not make sense to us, but we did add a few dollars.

    As always, Nostrana never disappoints. From the beautiful bubbles to the small bites and dessert, every bite is exceptional and worth lingering over.

    loud drum pounding muzak - not sure how that fits with fine dining- distracts from the entire dining experience. for dining, I prefer music to be in the background and subtle- I come for the food-
