Restobar & Lounge – Utica New York

Your Local
Gathering Spot

Nostro connects our approach to modern Italian cuisine with the nostalgia of mid-century modern design. The Oneida National Bank lobby delivers a stylish scene starring simple, user-friendly dishes paired with classic cocktails and prosecco. Our spacious yet intimate dining room mingles alongside the lively energy of the lounge; offering cozy seating for a perfect social setting. With an atmosphere constructed of rich leathers, cherry woods, terrazzo, and a scenic backdrop of a museum-worthy bronze mural, Nostro provokes your senses and fuels your desires to make 268 Genesee St. your new gathering spot.

Eat to Socialize

Social Dining is our idea of connecting with each other through food and drinks. Because Nostro (meaning “our” in Italian) is all about our way of dining, we encourage you and your guests to choose from our social dining menu, designed to allow us to do all the work while you reap all the benefits. Priced per person, and available only to a table in its entirety, allow us to navigate you through samples from our menu, selected daily, to represent our favorite choices to enjoy together.
