Reliably delicious after dozens of visits

My wife and I have eaten here dozens of times since moving to Wilmette from Evanston in 2012 -- both in the restaurant and via takeout service. The food always meets or exceeds expectations and the staff are friendly and competent (I can't recall ever having an order get goofed up). This is our... read more

Our entire family loves this restaurant. The menu is fantastic. My favorite menu item is the vegetarian risotto. Plus, I love the atmosphere of this cozy restaurant. In the suburbs, it's hard to find restaurants with personality and warmth. This is perfect.

This is NOT the noodles chain you might be familiar with but rather THE BEST PASTA you'll find on the North Shore. These folks know how to do it right ... they make fresh pasta a several sorts every day, have their own incredible sauces and are a neighborhood FRIENDLY place. Best of ALL Worlds when it comes to pasta... More

I have had numerous meals here and it never disappoints. The garlic bread is the best I have ever had. The pasta is home made and delicious. Great service and the food you get for the price can not be beat. Must try the tomato basil soup!!!

The Noodle, in downtown Wilmette near the train station, can make magic with chicken and green home made spinach linguini! Other dishes are equally tantalizing, but that is my favorite! The place is small and congested, and reservations are the way to go. And the portions are ample enough to support a second meal at home the next day! You... More

Great little restaurant in downtown Wilmette. Pleasant atmosphere & waitstaff. Food was delicious. They make their own plasta and you decide what flavor and type you would enjoy. It's then cut the way you order for your entree. Enjoyed dining here and I will be back. Prices are reasonable.

While visiting friends in this northern suburb of Chicago, we stopped by for a quick lunch. There are a variety of types of pastas available as well as the flours made with them. For gluten-free dieters, rice noodles are an option. We chose linguine to make it easier to share, a whole wheat garlic noodle, and meat-free marinara sauce. I... More

Eat here. Or order out. You can't go wrong. The food changes periodically and is always delish. Owned privately and locally.
