About Us

Born and raised in Long Island, New York, our Mom and Dad were particular about the quality of food they prepared, and never sacrificed on the high standard of ingredients in our meals. For generations, our family did not just eat – we feasted – and enjoyed wonderful flavors from all over the world. Nutritious, healthy and delicious food was always a must, and that premise shaped our lifelong eating habits. As a result, we are always creating new healthy and exciting cuisines.

As we traveled and worked in restaurants throughout the Northeast – from New York to Nantucket, from Newport to Florida – we sharpened our culinary skills. In 1991, we opened our first restaurant, tucked away in a small strip plaza on Pine Ridge Road in Naples, FL, and created a new culinary concept called “Noodles Café.” Here, our family opened its doors, inviting customers to “Feast in Our Home.”

Our restaurant offered an unparalleled dining experience, serving up the same passion for food that we grew up with, never sacrificing the flavors or high dining standards our parents believed in. Our “original” homemade pasta menu was posted on wall chalk boards throughout the restaurant. Guests simply chose from one of our handmade, in-house pasta dishes seasoned with locally grown herbs, or from made-to-order appetizers, salads and desserts. Our original signature dishes included what are now Noodles classics – Chicken & Artichoke Hearts, Pasta Bayou and Homemade Lobster Raviolis.

Over the past 27 years, Noodles has evolved into the uniquely styled, highly energized Noodles Italian Café & Sushi Bar – distinctively defined by its superlative interpretation of innovative New Italian cuisine combined with intricately composed Japanese sushi. Our collaboration with authentically trained & talented sushi chefs has been a wonderful surprise.

Tuna Tataki or Fried Calamari? Volcano Roll or Mussels Tuscany? Soy Sauce or Balsamic Vinegar? Who Knew? 

We are a passionate family restaurant. Our passion was ignited by our parents to celebrate food and our guest’s experiences. We embrace our guests with heartfelt hospitality, and are intent on exceeding their expectations. We love what we do! Let us show you something different and new!
