“my favorite Italian restaurant in Eugene”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Noli started in the 5th Street Market serving lunch, then moved to a new location on Monroe St. where they serve both lunch and dinner 5 days a week. The food is excellent, service far better than the more expensive restaurants in town, and prices very modest. They also offer a good selection of wines.
I give it 5 stars.

“New location, great service and food”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

So glad Noli has moved into our neighborhood! The food is delicious and reasonably priced. And the staff are very nice. Good wines too. We like the gnocchi, veggie lasagne and seafood pasta. Yum!

“Great lunch spot”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Nice location- yes it is a food court, but they did have bar seating open and that was where I sat. The meatball sandwich with the side salad with balsamic was really quite good. The meatballs where very, very good. The sauce was outstanding- These are two things that I've personally been perfecting for 30 years, and I was impressed. Meat balance, seasoning, texture, moisture- great. Sauce was a pure marinara... soaked into the bread, yum

Service was fine. Gal was not standing at attention when there was nothing to do- personally I dont care if people talk, look at cell phones, or do nothing...has no impact on my dining. This is, after all a food court. but I never had to wait for anything, simply a gaze held in their direction resulted in an inquiry as to what was next: 'ready to order?', 'dessert?' and "just the check'. If you order at the walk up, you pay on order- sitting at the bar and ordering there I ran a tab.

5 stars for what it is- a great italian spot in a food court.

Reviewed June 17, 2012

Had lunch ... their sauce, meats and salads are something like you would get in a fine Italian restaurant.

“Great Italian Lunch Food at 5th St Market”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

I eat here pretty frequently - and am pretty picky about my food. Davide - the owner from Genoa Italy, does a fantastic job on sandwiches, soups, and pastas for lunch. Tasty sauces for the pastas - our favorite lunch is the Tuscan Chicken Sandwich on ciabatta roll. Hard to beat that. Also love the multi-cheese penne pasta with sausage. Very rich - but tasty. Food order and delivery is at the counter - and usually very quick. Most meals are under $10.

The one annoying thing about the restaurants in the food court is that they yell out your name when your order is ready. Since there are five cafes in this large space - there is loud and frequent yelling going on. I wish they would give pagers to the customers - it would make for a more enjoyable experience for everyone.
