Chicken Parmigiana

The family meal can easily feed 6 to 8 people, comes with salad and bread, absolutely delicious! Well worth the price

Tagliatelle Bolognese

Nostrano is our favorite "go-to" restaurant in the area. Some of my favorite dishes are: eggplant parm, the meatball appetizer (the best in Fairfield county) all the fish specials and of course, Tagliatelle Bolognese. The pasta is firm and has that homemade taste and the sauce is substantial but doesn't over whelm the core of the dish. It is always served piping hot and with a generous portion. Make your reservation today for the weekend!

Chicken Piccata

We have had Nostranos cater many parties over the last 3 years and the truly amazing thing is the quality is the same as eating in the restaurant. Delicious Thanks.

Pane Cotto

I had the Pane Cotto as an appetizer and the Veal Parmesan special with ziti. The one mistake I made was ordering the small pane cotto, which turned out to be so delicious that everyone wanted some and really didn't have enough for myself. The Veal was super tender and perfectly balanced with sauce and cheese. I was also impressed with the portions, my son ate my leftovers that night and also raved of how good it was. We will definitely be back.

Pistachio crusted - I love pasta but when I go out I try the Salmon. This has to be the best I've had. Thank you.

Eggplant Parmigiana

OMG - this the best eggplant parm I've ever had (and I'm hard to please - I'm from NY lol). Didn't think it was possible to have an eggplant as good as Carmine's or Tony's DiNapoli but this is! The sauce is delicious, thick slices of eggplant layered in a stack. Simply scrumptious! Highly recommend.

Fusilli Broccoli Di Rabe & Sausage

Many Italian restaurants offer this dish but none execute the precise flavors like Nostrano. There is only one problem with Nostrano - the difficulty of trying to decide which menu item to order. You can't go wrong with anything on the entire menu. Great people and great staff.

Linguini Vongole

I'm a harsh critic of Linguini Vongole having made it myself for years, but Nostrano's is one of the few places that I can order this dish knowing it will be as good or better than what I make at home! Just the right amount of garlic and flavoring make every bite worthwhile. Great work Nostrano's!

Unbelievably good. Such a huge portion and the taste was amazing. At our table of 4, we all tried each other's dishes and they were equally amazing. Also started with a Caesar salad which was perfectly tossed and again, the portion was perfect. Left the restaurant with a food coma!

Chicken Scarpariello

We have been enjoying Nostrano's food for years! EVERYTHING is amazing! We especially love the Chicken Scarp, which can be served on or off the bone, and they will even put it over a GF pasta (my Celiac son's fave!). Each and every time it is to die for!

Linguine Vongole

I love making my own linguine with clam sauce so I'm a harsh critic when it comes to ordering it at a restaurant but easiest said, Nostrano's does it right!!! (not many places do). The sauce was great, with just the right amount of garlic, and you could tell the pasta was fresh. I know I'll be ordering this again!

This has long been my favorite dish at Nostranos. I have been enjoying it for years. The sausage is homemade and has an incredible flavor. It is hard for me not to order this meal when I come to the restaurant. If I choose something else I usually take a garganelli home with me for lunch and dinner the next day! Thank for always providing us with a friendly environment and a great meal ! We love you guys! Linda

Chicken Parmigiana

Nostrano did an amazing job catering for my backyard COVID wedding last weekend. Our original wedding plans changed several months ago and as we figured out new plans, Nostrano was recommended to us for their great food and they definitely did not disappoint! They were incredibly flexible and extremely helpful in organizing. They helped us figure out how much food we needed and what would go over well with our guests. They helped accommodate for allergies and dietary restrictions, even making a separate meal for a guest that is vegan and gluten free. The day of they delivered the food, which was so nice not to have another pick up to worry about. Every piece of the meal was absolutely delicious. Everyone was talking about how good the food was all evening and as I chat with those who came, the food continues to come up as a highlight. Nostrano did a great job and we will certainly be dining there in the future!

Chicken Parmigiana

We have not been here since February due to the lockdown but are looking forward to returning for the best Italian food. All the meals are so delicious it is difficult to decide what to order but whatever we do has consistently been delicious. Never disappointed with our choice. Looking forward to our next visit.

All I can say is EXCELLENT. The best Italian restaurant in CT. My husband and I have had the lobster special, chicken parm (so tender you cut it with a fork) and the filet mignon - excellent.

Pane Cotto

Nostranos is the best Italian Restaurant in Connecticut! Every dish is absolutely amazing! My favorite appetizer is the Pane Cotto. You must order the larger size because everyone will want to try it and there will be nothing left for yourself.. Trust me! We have tried basically everything on the menu and all of their specials are amazing! The salads are delicious, and Our very favorite thing to order is the pizza frete for dessert. It taste just like the ones your grandmother made when you were a kid! The service is great and the owners are very friendly. If you haven't tried Nostranos then you are missing out! We are ordering tonight!!

Pane Cotto

I had never tried this dish before but the waiter had suggested it so we have it a try. Woooww, this dish was so beyond delicious and I'm not usually a big fan of broccoli rave but this was too good. This restaurant is amazing. I used to go all the time when they were in Monroe and I will definitely make the drive to Newtown

I am a huge fan of this dish which is fusilli pasta, brocolli rabe, sausage and of course olive oil and garlic. It is so delicious with the perfect rabe/sausage to pasta ratio. I'm not a huge sausage fan but tried this because I love brocolli rabe. The sausage is very tender and delicious. I highly, highly recommend this dinner.

I've had many different entrees and every single one was superb! By far the best restaurant to open in Newtown in a very long time. Authentic Italian, family owned and it is clear they are here to stay. Wait staff is extremely friendly and provides excellent service. They are all fun to be around and work hard to please the customers. Nostrano's is always our "Go to" place for dinner and Happy Hour. If you haven't gone yet, RUN, don't walk to get an amazing meal.

Veal Milanese special and a nice Chianti Classico. Fantastic, crispy veal with fresh arugula and a light lemon dressing. My wife enjoyed the classic chicken parm too. Gratzi!

Calamari Fra Diavolo

All I can say is WOWOWOWOW this dish is everything and then some. The seafood is fresh and plentiful, we had trouble finding the pasta because there was so much seafood piled high. The sauce is perfection.
