    Gnocchi Thursday's and delicious pizza. They charge a $25 corking fee for bringing your own bottle of wine which is pretty crazy.

    Clint Dempsey was there. The pizza was great. Our waiter was a jerk. We asked if our beers would be separate, and he said "No, im not having 14 separate tickets." That's fine, but there wasn't 7 of us

    Jenn Louis, chef of Lincoln, eats here on her nights off. She loves the Insalata Nostrana. Read more

    The Happy Hour (starts at 9PM) is a steal with drinks & snacks (We love the Charcuterie) for $5 and under.

    Chocolate budino. I had it a few months ago and am still thinking of it.

    Daily Panino

    Chris T❗️ · February 24, 2014

    Great Italian. A little upscale. Chef Cathy Whims has been nominated for the James Beard Award for the Northwest 5 years in a row. Get the budino for dessert. It's deliciously rich.

    Bartenders will introduce you to booze you hated and will make you love it. Kitchen is amazing. So much is made in house, especially the syrups. Quality place for happy hour and every hour.

    Meatball Mondays ... Delicious!

    This is the place with the absolute best floral design!

    You must get the chocolate budino. No questions asked. :)

    Lindsay Stark · August 11, 2013
  • Tyler R.

    Avoid the house wine, even if the $5 price point is appealing...super unpalatable.

    The tomato butter sauce is delicious.

    Kushal Dave · July 29, 2013

    Definitely order the Pork Belly

    Sit at the pizza counter. Diavolo pizza with arugula. Chocolate budino with the dessert wine pairing. You're welcome.

    Order the 'Straw and Hay' me.

    Kimberly Odom · May 28, 2013
  • Michelle B.

    The cheese plate was amazing. The ravioli was ok. The Caesar salad was overpowering. The porterhouse pork chop was fantastic. The strawberry rhubarb crisp is the best - order it for sure!

    If you like sweet wines, try the Prosecco Valdobbiadene Brut. So good.

    Melissa Balsan · May 17, 2013
  • Melissa B.

    Try the wood fired pizza - you get to cut it with special scissors! The Granchio is a delicious choice.

    Melissa Balsan · May 17, 2013
  • Courtney S.

    Happy hour menu available after 9 p.m. includes their excellent margarita pizza for $6 and their take on mac & cheese. Pasta special is always excellent too.

    Happy hour is great! Pizza margarita and the house wine. Reasonably priced and delicious!

    The big rib steak is a treat for four. Or five. Whatever it takes.

    Uni and lemon for Bucatini? Worst combination. Don't do it!

    Amazing! Nothing more can be said.

    Save room for the butterscotch budino!

    Daniel Pollack-Pelzner · November 30, 2012

    Crostini, pizza and save room for the berry crumble.

    Peter Yang · November 13, 2012

    You receive scissors to cut your pizza with. Brilliant.

    Butterscotch budino! Poached from Pizzeria Mozza in LA, sure, but almost as good.

    Daniel Pollack-Pelzner · September 30, 2012
  • Mark J.

    From @mrgan: "Very nice slightly-upscale Italian. Pizzas and insalata Nostrana are ace. The best Italian spot in town."

    Mark Jensen · September 10, 2012
  • Jimmy M.

    Don't forget to leave room for the Butterscotch Budino. Its the same recipe from Mozza in LA, and it rules.

    Jimmy Mouton · June 5, 2012
  • Kelly B.

    Get the gnocchi on Thursdays!!!

    Kelly B. · May 25, 2012
  • Pauline P.

    Great food! The salted caramel dessert is a must!

    Have Farmhouse Dinner before they take it off menu. And ala carte -- try the Honey Pinenut Tart. First bite, the honey experience explodes on your tastebuds then lingers with the essence of pinenuts.

    If you got young kids ask for some dough for them to play with.

    Go after 9 to Nostrana's late "happy hour" for $5 Pizza. This is one of the best restaurants in Portland, can't go wrong

    First off, the pizzas are to die for. No better crust in the world, Then there is an an amazing executive chef, unbelievable deserts, a Tagliata that is amazing, unique wines and regularly changing fl

    I had the Budino with carmel and salt it was soooo amazingly good. I also had the Ling Cod and it was delicious.

    Think wood-fired California designer pizza, by way of fine Oregon farmers. New Yorkers may cringe, Italians may flee, but Sarah Minnick and oven man James Albee bust out some of the tastiest, most sat Read more

    Intensely regional Italian food, wood-fired oven pizza, and a totally accessible menu make Cathy Whims (once of Genoa) the most renowned female chef in Portland. [Eater 38 Member] Read more
