Homemade and fresh pasta and sauces makes for a great dinner.

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

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. The restaurant is not really kid friendly... 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.
