Lots of more expensive choices than pizza, but no matter what you eat I can almost guarantee satisfaction. This James Beard award winning chef deserves every accolade. Don't miss it! Reservations a must.

My family and I love Nostrana and will go for special occasion dinners, but a best kept secret is their lunch! This is our go-to for a luxurious Friday lunch or even a mid-week pizza and salad. The daily menu is different than the dinner...More

Description
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.
