About Us

Around our table we become family, friends and community


Nicoletta’s Table, located in downtown Lake Oswego and owned by Lake Oswego locals, Alan and Shari Newman, is based on the Italian concept of a trattoria and small neighborhood marketplace. Shari and Alan met in 2003 and their love affair with Italy and the Italian life style began while they stayed in Mulino a Vento in 2004 and met Beppe and Nicoletta Toritti in Cortona, Italy. The Torriti's are dear family friends whose love of excellent, quality Tuscan food and wine is unparalleled and they are the inspiration for Nicoletta's Table and Marketplace. Together, their love of life, family, dear friends, entertaining, and Italian food and wine led them to create Nicoletta’s Table.
