The Noodle has wonderful house-made pasta and great choices of sauces/toppings. We particularly like the chicken curry and the asparagus. Never had a bad meal here. The restaurant is very small, best to make a reservation.

Tasty homemade pasta, various sauces, sides, salads, soups and other meat and fish dishes, plus daily specials accompanied by excellent service. We have eaten there a couple of times a month for the past 29 years. Never disappointing.The food here is really good. We always bring visiting guests here and no one has ever been disappointed.

The Noodle has the best home made pasta, including whole wheat. A variety of fabulous sauces. It is impossible to decide which one to order since they all sound great. Fortunately, for a $1 you can have two of them. Entrees include a salad or soup (really good too). This makes a fantastic value when considering how expensive the soup... More

You can't go wrong with this restaurant. It's small and you may have to wait for a table, but the wait is well worth it! Great Italian food!

Went with a fairly large party for a late lunch at The Noodle, a favorite of the merchant we were visiting in Wilmette. Our party of 7 was met with enthusiastic and excellent service. The food was outstanding. Among us, we had the house Tomato Basil soup along with two others, and all were delicious. The garlic toast, available on... More

Small but not crowded. Delicious, made in house pasta and sauces. Great for family and friends. Very friendly and personable wait staff. Yummy garlic bread too. Outdoor tables are quickly served. Every time I go there are new specials.

You cant go wrong here. This is my favorite place to get salmon and fresh made pasta. The garlic bread is also wonderful! The place is small so either get a reservation, if you have six or more, or be prepared to wait. The staff has been there a long time and are very friendly and good. The food is... More
