Nostrana restaurant offers $5 or less happy hour menu featuring savory plates from its hand crafted, local menu offered every night of the week from 9 p.m. ’til close. The menu includes wine, beer, authentic wood-fired Italian pizzas, the signature Insalata Nostrana and more.
No use in refraining from superlatives here, Nostrana has the best happy hour in town. It's not often that food of this caliber be offered at prices this low. Chef Cathy Whims has long been considered one of Portland's best chefs. Her food is authentic, regional Italian and her ingredients, as good as they get. Five bucks for any of the following: Pizza Margherita, Pizza Marinara, Insalata Nostrana (so good) and the Charcuterie Plate. I had a Campari & Soda for another $4. Value to quality, exceptionally high.
I finally had a chance to try Nostrana's happy hour on Saturday night.. WOW. I think this is probably the best food happy hour in town. The $3 pints of beer are a good deal as well. We sat at the "pizza bar" right in front of the guy making legitimate Vera Pizza Napoletana wood-fired brick-oven pizzas for a measly $5. These are right up there with best two or three pizza places in town.
