Description: Located in the heart of Zion Canyon at the entrance to Zion National Park, Zion Pizza & Noodle Co. is situated in the picturesque village of Springdale, Utah. Once an old church, the building is now a focal point for visitors wishing to take a relaxing break and enjoy good food and good company.Formerly an old Mormon church built in 1930, the picturesque building that is home to Zion Pizza & Noodle Co. was converted to commercial use in 1983. Due to uncertain soil conditions, the foundation was built four feet thick and the walls are one foot thick. The interior walls are lathe and plaster construction. It graces the commerical center of Springdale.The Zion Pizza & Noodle Co. serves some of the finest pizza and pasta around. We use the freshest local ingredients, and cater to vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. CompanyBruce M .

“Not worth the wait”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

You have to stand in line for upwards of 20 minutes to order, sit at a sticky table (we grabbed a wet cloth from the counter and cleaned it ourselves) and then wait another 20 minutes for your pizza which isn't great. Don't bother waiting people...

“Flavorful and fun”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Stopped in at 9:30pm to eat. It was busy which is a good sign. You pick your own table then stand in line to order line went pretty fast. Was greeted by Mike who was very friendly. Ordered the Foccacia pizza and loved it. Very flavorful and filling. There is also a wide selection of beers and wines. Would definitely go again. Most seating was outside which was a bit hot in June.

“Good food; set-up of restaurant is annoying.”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We were eager for some pizza and saw good reviews for this restaurant; well deserved for the pizza, which I would give four stars (as was the cheese bread we had to start). But for goodness sake, I cannot stand the set-up of restaurants like this that have you order and pay at a counter. Just watching the staff one could tell it created a great deal of confusion and inconsistency, and god forbid you might just want a second beer and have to stand in a long line again, then withstand the long delivery time... Would be a solid four stars without this silly set-up, but worth going if you have a lot of time to kill.

“Pizza and salad”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Who would have thought little Springdale would have such a great pizza place, but they do! Try their pizza and you won't be disappointed.
