    Perfection from the moment we walked in. The service was attentive and our dinner from the appetizers, to our entrees and dessert were all amazing! This was our first visit, and we will definitely recommend this restaurant to our friends.

    Our server, Meredith, was terrific, as was the hostess and all of the wait staff. The food was great and was all served at the same time, which is always greatly appreciated with a party of 6. We will definitely be back!

    This was the first time we visited Nostrano’s since the new owners took over. We used to come here all the time because the food was just fabulous. although the menu appear similar, the food is not the same at all. It’s just bland and not good at all. The special chicken dish had NO flavor and neither did the broccoli rabe on the side. Linguine with clam sauce was terrible and fishy - we sent it back. Our advice to them - hire an Italian chef who knows how to cook. We will not be coming back.

    Wanted to go as Nostrana, just one of our favorite restaurants in the area and is now under new ownership and wanted to give them a try. Sat us immediately. Waited for a bit before they brought over a bottle of water and waited quite a bit before somebody offered us a cocktail at the same time asked if we wanted an appetizer, but still hadn’t told us about any specials. He had to go to the get the special menu and then asked me to read it from his card because he couldn’t pronounce Portabella. I noticed he did the same thing at other tables so I’m thinking perhaps he thinks it’s cute. The cocktails were good and they were strong. The focaccia was hard, but the food was just as good as it always was. Probably should get some experienced weight staff to keep up with the prior owners and then they’ll be fine.

    Their garganelli and passion fruit margarita were fresh and delicious. Our servers were very sweet and attentive. The new owner also introduced himself to us which was a very nice touch. I wish them success and will be back to try more entrees.

    I have been here several times but last night they were off their game Maybe it was because they had a party and a full restaurant at the same time We ordered drinks then apps and 2 people also got salads. The salads came out first and 5 minutes later a waitress came out with one meal. No other dinners. At first I thought they had forgotten the apps but they took the salmon meal back then 15-30 minutes later the apps came out. No small plates were given with them and we had to ask. We asked for drink refills 2 times. Then when the 4 meals came I could tell that my salmon had been sitting since they had tried to serve it over 40 minutes before. It was very disappointing. Hopefully they were just having a bad night.

    The restaurant is lovely, the portions were decent, and the server was attentive. Nostrano's is a lovely restaurant. My only criticism is that I had the eggplant parmesan, and it did not come with a side of pasta. It's my fault for not reading the menu carefully, but I was disappointed.

    Nostrano’s never disappoints! The food is superb, the portions are more than ample and the ambience was relaxed with a nice vibe. Our waitress Katie is the best! She has a wonderful rapport with the customers and knows instinctively when to come over to the table and when to leave you alone. Just what you want when dining out. Will be back again soon.

    The food was outstanding!!! Our only issue was when we arrived, there wasn’t anyone by the hostess table and we waited quite a while to be seated (we had a reservation). Once seated we waited again, I finally asked who our waiter was and would they please come over. After this, Jordan came over and took very good care of us.
