Contemporary Italian
Nostro connects our approach to modern Italian cuisine with the nostalgia of mid-century modern design. The Oneida National Bank lobby delivers a stylish scene starring simple, user-friendly dishes paired with classic cocktails and prosecco. Our spacious yet intimate dining room mingles alongside the lively energy of the lounge; offering cozy seating for a perfect social setting. With an atmosphere constructed of rich leathers, cherry woods, terrazzo, and a scenic backdrop of a museum-worthy bronze mural, Nostro provokes your senses and fuels your desires to make 268 Genesee St. your new gathering spot.

    It is the worst restaurant I have ever been in. We had a reservation for 8:15 but were not seated until 8:45. The food did not arrive until 9:50. While we waited we were "entertained" by extremely loud, thumping music over loud speakers. We asked to have it turned down to no avail. When the food finally arrived for our party of six it ranged from mediocre to inedible. For the first time in my life I didn't leave a tip. If you go, you go at your own peril.

    Was visiting Utica for work and WOW! I’m a restaurant snob but I was impressed with the quality of the service and ambiance of this place. The food was delicious and fresh. The drinks were aesthetically pleasing and tasty!

    Menu sounded great but the food was average . When are plates came out, the food was already cold . Lighting and music volume needs to be adjusted .

    I feel my review should start out with a little context……we have been here a few times. All of our visits to Nostro have been great and we were looking forward to visiting again, until our trip today. Unfortunately our most recent visit left a lot to be desired…..our meals were very bland (2 pasta dishes), the service was inattentive, to the tune of waiting over 30 minutes from “finishing” our meals to being asked if we needed any boxes or the check, or even simply asking how we were doing (nothing like what we experienced in our previous visits) and our bill was quite hefty for the experience. I would like to highlight some positives….the drinks, the white truffle garlic bread, and the Brussel sprouts were all good. Also, the ambience was phenomenal, as always. We have recommended Nostro to many friends and family from previous experiences but we are a little more reluctant to do so moving forward from our most recent visit. Hopefully others experience the Nostro we did in previous visits.

    Outstanding Easter brunch! Options were plentiful and delicious. Service was prompt & friendly. Nostro continues to be one of our go-to spots for dining in Utica. The fresh pastas are my favorite!
