We're currently reserving indoor tables and bar seating. When available, outdoor patio reservations may be subject to weather disruptions.

A Service Charge of 22% is applied to all checks at Nostrana, providing a professional and equitable wage for all team members.

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.

    Service and food top notch, as usual. The food is always excellent here, but it is the service, time and time again, that goes above and beyond to make all guests welcome and comfortable, and this makes Nostrana truly an exceptionally fine restaurant.

    We had another excellent dining experience last night with friends that were new to Nostrana. The sommelier helped us find a nice bottle of wine & the dishes were amazing. Nostrana is one of our favorites.

    Good food. Service was average. I ordered the fish stew and don’t get a dish for shells. Portions were on the small size. The restaurant adds mandatory 22% tip. Go big or go home eh? Almost a quarter of our final bill was the tip. Pretty disappointing.

    As always, the food and service were amazing. It’s the reason we continue to come back. But this time we sat in the newer “bar” located next door. The bar stools are extremely uncomfortable, making our visit less than enjoyable. Both parties on either side of us also expressed their physical discomfort due to the horrible stools. I love visiting for the wonderful food and service but will avoid sitting on the cork topped bar stools next time around.

    We love Nostrana, such a great staple that always delivers. The knock is the 22.5% auto gratuity, even on bottles of wine, etc. doesn't feel super fair nor inviting to order great bottles of wine (already marked up) only to be hit with another 22.5% on top of that cost.

    There were 4 of us for dinner. 2 had the Trout which was fantastic. 2 of us had the Smoked Chicken..not so good, very dry. I'll just chalk it up to a bad night, since I have eaten here several times and always had very good experience with the food.

    Good overall - service at bar was not super intuitive or genuine. The gnocchi was disappointing ... it was overcooked (mushy/soft). Pizza was great. Bar and atmosphere was very nice. Meatballs were good. The bread course was average...would have been wonderful if the bread was served warm. The lemon merengue dessert was perfect. We did not like the 22% auto gratuity.

    Excellent food, and the service was excellent. I understand the philosophy of the service charge. However, it has become excessive when one wants to yip the wait personal as well. Hard to justify the value.
