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.

    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.

    The food and service was fabulous-just perfect. Only issue is the noise. It’s still a bit noisy for conversation

    we have been many times. always order the same things pretty much. we branched out last night and were disappointed. my ribs were "okay" but not exceptional and my partner's radiatore pasta was so dry he could not eat it all. the ambiance, service, atmosphere all remain top-drawer. but for the first time ever the food was no more than mediocre considering the price.

    Unfortunately, although there was nothing wrong with the food, it was very overpriced. The service was excellent. I don't necessarily have a problem with the automatic 22% service charge, but knowing what I know about certain food costs, even with accounting for labor, they're almost certainly making more than enough off the food margins alone to pay their staff. But they tack on the service charge and still ask for a tip? Will not return.

    Love Nostana. Food and service were wonderful. One and drinks were terrific. The noise level was a bit high for us. Highly recommend!

    It was a "girl's night" out. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who promptly brought us to our table. The restaurant was filled with tantalizing aromas. We shared several dishes. Each was prepared beautifully and the presentation was equally lovely. Our server was lovely and happily provided us with information about how dishes were prepared. The wine steward was knowledgeable and helped us decide on the perfect bottle of wine. It was a great meal. We highly recommend this restaurant!
