Rustic Italian home cooking gets the Portland treatment at this east-side restaurant that's somehow both spacious and cozy, equally welcoming to foodies with and without kids. Chef Cathy Whims, five-time James Beard Award nominee, focuses on simple, high-quality ingredients like fresh crushed olive oil and semolina gnocchi. The wood-oven pizzas come with house-made mozzarella and toppings such as Manila clams and crème fraîche, and the two-inch-thick, two-and-a-half-pound Bistecca alla Fiorentina—a menu outlier at $65—is dry-aged for an entire month. Nostrana hosts one of the east-side's best happy hours, with $5 pizzas and charcuterie plates, but you'll need reservations to ensure a table during dinner.
