Freshest Pasta Around

I've been a Noodle Cafe fan for 12+ years. The first time I went was over lunch. I was instantly hooked and frequently visit to date. Their take-out is also wonderful as the restaurant is often very crowded and they have limited seating. Take-out is fast and consistently takes 15 minutes or less... read more

Cozy little place, great for lunch or dinner. We often go for lunch and have soup and half a sandwich or salad. My DH is a big fan of the tomato basil soup and lime tuna salad. The pasta dishes are always good, love the ones with seafood. Rotating art exhibit on the walls. Easy parking. Make a reservation for... More

Fresh pasta and home made sauces make this place a really nice little spot for a casual lunch or dinner. Limited seating so plan accordingly. Also has a small market attached.

You always know what you're going to get at Noodle Cafe...fresh pasta, huge portions, yummy garlic bread, tasty soups, and friendly, efficient service. When I lived in Chicago, I went here a couple times a year, and now, returning to Chgo multiple times a year, I still frequent it. You can mix-match sauces and pastas (including special sauces), enjoy a... More

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 "go-to" place to take family and... 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!!!
