With Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra filling the air with classic tunes, come enjoy some of Denver's finest Italian eats. Family owned and operated since its inception in 1996, The Bent Noodle never fails to leave you perfectly stuffed with classics such as Homemade Sausage Lasagna, Fettuccine Alfredo, Chicken Picatta, or Simply Spaghetti and Meatballs. Try our homemade salad dressings, or Sausage and Peppers to start and finish with a piece of our New York style Cheesecake.

“One of our favorites!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

We've been going to the Bent Noodle for over 3 years now and it's on a short list of restaurants we frequent several times a year. The food is fantastic, you have to try the Gretchen's Pasta! But substitute the chicken with their home made Italian sausage, it's one of the top 3 best decisions you'll make in a life time. The owner, Gunther is the hardest worker there and a great guy. He has a great rapport with his customers and keeps them updated with specials and fun events. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere and always looks clean. If I were to knock on anything, it'd be the wait staff. Had some real good experiences but some pretty average ones too. No matter what part of Denver we'll live in, we'll always dine at the Bent Noodle. A Must Eat!!

“One of our favorites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

The Bent Noodle has been one of our favorite restaurants for the past 10 years. The food is homemade and always a hit with out of town guests. I love the chicken marsala and my husband's usual is vegetables and pasta. Our 4-year-old son begs to go there to for the bread and balsamic vinegar! We love it there!

“Very Good Resturant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

My wife and I visited last night. Resturant has a nice homey, friendly, and family feel and atmosphere but I didn't see any children. The food was well prepared, tasty, and obviously from fresh ingredients. We had a sausage and vegetable appetizer that was delicious. I had the Aglio Oglio Pasta and it was very good - even their Menstrone soup was fresh and tasty. My wife had their vegetable pasta that was also very good. The portions are very generous and you will not go away hungry. It was our first time but it won't be our last - we'll keep you posted. Oh, and the service was excellent as well and the waitstaff knew their menu and were helpful throughout our meal.

“Luigis Bent Noodle Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2011

Still great after years of business. Had a drop in dinner on Monday night with my wife it had been some time since we had been to the Bent Noodle. What a meal, as good as any I have had recently.

The meals starts with the homemade bread parmesan crusted was fresh and substantial to dip in the olive oil they let you serve yourself. The Ceasar was exceptional and one dinner salad easily feeds two.

For the main course the Pasta di Toscana with Italian sausage sun dried tomatoes, crimini mushrooms and bow tie past was extraordinary. The Veal Picatta my wife had was very thin tender and flavorful. We have enjoyed the Hunter Chicken, and Shrimp Diablo in the past.

We will be staying in better touch with this neighborhood treat.

“Best salmon ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

Though this dish is a bit on the pricey side, it is not overpriced, and it is the best salmon dish I have ever had (and I order salmon a lot). It was melt in your mouth delicious. Get the shrimp stuffed salmon--you will be glad you did.
