Loud, busy, cheap, great food, nice bar, great service, packed, cash only. Been going here for years. I tend to get there at 6 because if you come later you have to wait an hour. All the grannies and families are here early. Then it's

We absolutely love it here and have been coming for YEARS! Yes, it is cash only and there is often a wait - that just means it's inexpensive and popular - two good signs!

I'm amazed no one else has written about this restaurant yet. It's outstanding. Everything is SO delicious, made by master chefs. The pasta is homemade and the food relatively rich although the grilled fish I had last time I was there left me just enough room to stuff in dessert. Excellent, reasonably-priced wine list as well (I highly recommend the Chiantis). By 6:00 pm, there's a wait to get in even though it's a fairly large space. Bring a book, it's worth waiting.

Noodle pudding is exactly the type of service and food I enjoy. Servers are all different, Greg is my favorite. Sometimes tables don't understand his sense of humor but it's refreshing to have a server who has personality, professionalism, and respects the privacy of your dinner. This is the first place I've been that a runner remembers my order... hope he likes his job because I have half a mind to steal him for my restaurant. Prices are fair across the board for both food and bev. I go out to eat and like my courses, servers are patient and never rush courses or force another drink. Restaurants in manhattan should try to model food and service after this place.

Pros: price point, wine selection, service

Cons: If you go too early you may be stuck in stroller parking

I've been wanting to go to this place forever and finally got a table. The menu looked great, and the waiter was very nice, but when the food came, it was average. Nevertheless, I finished my plate, and that's when I found a maggot in mushroom sauce at the bottom. I showed it to the manager, and he smilingly apologized and brought us two free desserts (but did not ask us what we wanted and so brought the last two desserts we would have asked for). When the bill came, nothing was comped, so I told the manager very politely that we were willing to pay for the wine, but I didn't think I should have to pay for food with a maggot in it. Yes, I ate the food, but I certainly would not have if I had seen the maggot before eating, and I was at this point fairly sick to my stomach. The manager finally said he would comp the two glasses of wine (which cost less than the food), and made it seem like a big concession. We paid and left because we didn't feel like arguing any more. I have worked in restaurants and cook a lot, and there is no way a maggot should be able to get into well prepared food. For a restaurant with such a good reputation and that is usually so packed, there was no reason for such a lack of intelligent customer service.

Went here tonight on a recommendation of a few people as well as the stellar reviews. The appetizers that we ordered, Polpo(Octopus) was tasty, but the Carpacchio was more like an arugula salad instead of carpacchio and was in need of salt. Our main entrees the Tagliatelle Bolognese was also okay. Nothing special, just some ground chuck in tomato sauce and the Veal Cheeks special could've also used more salt in the polenta and the cippolini onions could've been cooked a few minutes longer. The veal cheeks themselves were cooked perfectly but lacked salt. The wait between appetizer and entree was a ridiculous 30 minutes considering we were one of the first tables seated. Overall not what I expected for all the hype. I can understand going there if I were to live in the neighborhood but not worth the trip. Al Di La is much better Italian food especially for the price.

My first time here, I had a male server. He was perfection. He knew his wine, he knew when to make conversation and when to keep his distance. He was personable and extremely efficient. The second time we had a female. She was slightly frantic, less personable, less efficient, but she did the job. (Better service than most places.) The server's assistants/busboys were also extremely efficient. I appreciated the water refills, clearing of plates changing of silverware, etc. The bartender was the worst of the service here. He was extremely slow. It took him quite some time to acknowledge us. (Which is disappointing because the bar only has room for 4-6 customers).
The food!! It is amazing! You cant go wrong here. It is worth any wait. This is one of the only restaurants in the area that has a nice selection of fish and meat choices. (Unlike some places, that have just salmon and filet.) IThe wine list is nice, but supposedly not updated.
This restaurant only takes cash! So as long as you know that, you should have a great dinner here!!

My parents lived in Italy for two years, and absolutely loved it. The only disappointment is that I wasn't around, as I have a fondness for Italian food. I enjoy eating, and always like restaurants that offer generous portions with an eye for quality. Many times I have gone to an establishment with rave reviews, and walk out feeling less than satisfied. This has not been the case with Noodle Pudding.

The first time I went to Noodle Pudding was with my parents. They had been there on previous occasions, and fully recommended it. The whole dining room had a Italian motife, and it is loud and crowded.(That's okay-just like Italy, according to my folks!) We were given seats at a large table, which had very comfortable seating.

Almost immediately after taking our places, bread was delivered to the table. It was delicious, and there were different varieties to choose from. There were large amounts of butter, and our water glasses were filled with ice cold water. Our server brought us salads, and they were very good.(Good portions as well!) We looked at the menus, and decided our meals. I have always been a fan of chicken parmigiana, and gave my order to the server. The timing between the salads/appetizers before the meal arrived, was perfect in every way. I could not believe the size of the meal that arrived in front of me, and it was there I discovered the true nature of Italian eating.

Pros: Food, staff, music, wine

Cons: Long lines, no credit cards, no reservations

Noodle Pudding felt like it was slightly in the middle of nowhere, but worth the walk. The ambiance was great, casual but atmospheric, with mottled walls and classy chandeliers and plenty of candlelight, sometimes shared seating with others, a loud vibrant feel, plenty of families, kids & toddlers.

We read that you should "get there early?. The place was packed and there was already a line at 5:45 on a Saturday. It seemed they open at 5:30 and that's when the crowds swoop down. Luckily we were still early enough that we only waited about 5 min for a table.

Most importantly: the food. This was a winner, one of the best meals we've had in a while. Every dish we sampled was extremely tasty. All tasted fresh, and succulent; simple flavors and dishes, as is often the case in Italy, that come together for amazing meals. The bread and olive oil for dipping they bring is great. The mussels with spicy tomato sauce appetizer was excellent. The buffalo mozzarella was fresh and the tomatoes with it were juicy and flavorful. The mushroom risotto had by the hubby was just what he wanted, with a mixture of 3 types of mushrooms, and my sage & butter gnocchi dish was simple and perfect. The tiramisu was one of the hubby's "top tiramisu choices", as it's one of his favorite dishes. And the house wine was not bad for $14 (bottle).
All in all a local favorite.

Mussles and calamari were superb Saturday evening. I had the Lamb special which was perfect. My father had the flank steak which was very good, and my mother had the swordfish. Very impressive!

Having heard great things about Noodle Pudding, my family and I were excited to go there for lunch on Mother's Day. When we arrived, however, we discovered they placed our table of 8 in a corner, against the wall, with barely enough space to eat. When we tried to make more space, the manager was rude and totally unaccomodating. He was not apologetic at all and was even insulting to my husband. We would have left, but it was Mother's Day afternoon and we knew we wouldn't get a table anywhere else. Luckily we stayed because the food was delicious (for the most part -- the calamari was a little chewy but everything else was great) and the waitstaff was excellent. Our waiter was lovely and gave us free desserts to try to make up for the manager's rudeness. The gelati and chocolate mousse cake was amazing.

We stumbled across Noodle Pudding while house sitting for a friend. She highly recommended it, and as being Italian we always have lower expectations... Needless to say we were totally won over. We ate there 4 times in 1 week we loved it that much. The food is FANTASTIC, the prices are reasonable and the service is great. No complaints and is worth the trip to Brooklyn. LOVE IT!

Noodle Pudding has officially become my favorite resterant in New York. I have lived in the 5 boroughs my enitre life, eating out is a hobby of mine.

This is a very special place. You feel as if you are eating at a friends house. The wait staff is AMAZING, they are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The food is outstanding, the price- reasonable. the atmostphere is cozy and comfy and super romanitic. I recommend the samon with the white beans and escorole and the seafood ragu is to die for!!
We live in Manhattan, its such a lovely date, to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge, go to noodle pudding and stroll home.

The ONLY negatives to mention are that is quite nosey and a bit too warm most of the times.

Went to Noodle Pudding last weekend after hearing great reviews... There was a wait, but the service was, honestly, the best I've ever had. Everything we ordered was great, except for the plain tomato sauce, which was just ok. The calamari was fried to perfection, the beef carpaccio appetizer was fresh and delicious, and the wine list is very reasonably priced. Definitely go if you're looking for a good Italian meal.

There's a great buzz about the place...Even though they don't take reservations and the place seems packed you manage to get seated within 20mins max...may be longer for bigger parties... the bar is great fun ... as for the food check out the Mussels in white wine..... The steak is great but a little dry...all the salads are fab..Food wise it can be up or down on the selections..Wine list is so so reasonable....and a great selection... and at the end you will be surprised at the check at least we were....

This is simply one of the best restaurants in New York. Everything is so fresh and prepared to perfection. I've eaten there probably 30-40 times and I've always left completely satisfied. Prices are great. Service is outstanding! I just wish they would start taking reservations, because the wait can be long. But you can either sit/stand at the bar if there's room (even if there isn't, you'll get a drink; the bartender is some sort of wizard), or go to the Henry Street Ale House a block up. Go! It has a stupid name - so what. Go! Or rather, don't go, so my wait will be shorter.

Bad acoustics ruined an otherwise enjoyable dinner at this highly-recommended restaurant. Bklyn Heights needs a place like this: good, fresh Italian food, but it was impossible to concentrate on the food with the level of noise in the place-- and we were there on a week night.

Too bad, because otherwise I have no complaints-- but noise is a big factor in enjoying a restaurant, in my opinion.

After hearing several of our neighbors rave about this place, we decided to try on a week night. My pasta bolognese was tasty but awfully skimpy for a $17 entree. My husband ordered a seafood pasta item from the specials board - two clams, two mussels, and some shrimp for $20. Restaurant is also listed as kid friendly - our 5-year old son likes his pasta plain, no sauce no butter, no cheese - but there is no kids menu - we paid $7 for a half order of penne and it wasn't enough to satisfy our son's appetite.

All told our $60+ bill (no appetizers, no dessert, no liquor) was a waste of money since we all walked out hungry. Skip the noise, (we ate on week night and the place was half empty but it echos so that you would have thought every table was full), and the overpriced menu and the cash only payments. We have numerous Italian restaurants in Brooklyn Heights - from Southern Italian, Grandma is in the Kitchen to simple trattoria to Nothern Italian, white tablecloth all of which are a better value -not to mention Cobble Hill, Smith Street and Carroll Gardens.

Full disclosure: I had a long-term relationship that sustained its ground on the evenings at Noodle Pudding. Don't get me wrong, this is a very sweet, made-with-care place that is always busy, the owner is usually around, draped towel dangling from his slumped shoulders, attending to the customers, running the place, making sure the operation is run with a mix of neighborhoodian love and craft for the fresh meal. No hipsters, no scene, people from the neighborhood, mild Brooklyn Heights folk. I adored the liver and never got over the cornish hen stuffed with wild rice. One New Year's I booked it and took my parents there, it was so nice, the food excellent, no frills, the atmosphere warm and inviting. This is the kind of place that reminds you what warmth and care and love used to mean, before boutique hotels and condos ravaged the landscape with their lacquered blandness.

Noodle Pudding is undoubtedly my favorite restaurant in New York. As soon as you walk in, you can feel the energy and warmth that makes this restaurant what it is. The wait staff are incredibly friendly and helpful when it comes to suggestions, the ingredients are always fresh and you can't beat their prices. I love the penne arrabiata- better than when I tried it in Italy. But everything is delicious. Don't miss this place.

Waited half hour for a table for a party of two on a Tuesday night - BUT the wait was SOOOO worth it. Noodle Pudding is the best in Brooklyn Heights. The calamari was just the right texture; the lamb ragu noodles were good, too. I thorougly enjoyed my Linguine alla Puttanesca -- olives were fresh and tasty. $12 bottle for decent house wine can't be beat. The volume in the restaurant is noisy, but this place has excellent service. The bartender was so friendly -- handles the drinks for EVERYONE in the restaurant all by himself. Would certainly come here over and over again.

We were wowed by the salmon with escarole and white beans. However, the gnocchi pomodoro was very disappointing. We weren't expecting Grandmom's Gnocchi, but the gummy texture of their dumplings made us wonder if it was the Chef's night off and we were stuck with the "understudy". Dessert was equally unbalanced. The lemon goat cheesecake was extremely dry and practically begged for a nice sauce or some fresh fruit. Alternately, the chocolate mousse was incredibly rich, smooth and decadent. The good stuff was SO good that I'd be willing to give Noodle Pudding one more shot.

We were wowed by the salmon with escarole and white beans. However, the gnocchi pomodoro was very disappointing. We weren't expecting Grandmom's Gnocchi, but the gummy texture of their dumplings made us wonder if it was the Chef's night off and we were stuck with the "understudy". Dessert was equally unbalanced. The lemon goat cheesecake was extremely dry and practically begged for a nice sauce or some fresh fruit. Alternately, the chocolate mousse was incredibly rich, smooth and decadent. The good stuff was SO good that I'd be willing to give Noodle Pudding one more shot.

Pros: some of the food was awesome

Cons: some of the food was disappointing

Had the calves liver alla veneziana in a fine rich and complex sauce with perfectly fried onions. It came with baked mashed potatoes and a fine garlicky spinach. The bread was fresh, the olive oil dip nicely spiced. My friend was satisfied with his salmon with white beans and greens.
The fact that the dishes have their unique sides speaks volumes; there're real attention to the food. The waitstaff are waiters, not models passing time.
We went round 7pm on a Saturday, were seated in 10 minutes. I liked the feel of the place from the get go, bustling and alive. That said it was on the noisy side, not really what I'd call "romantic". The neighborhood's great for strolling.

My wife and I visited New York late in April of 2006, and ate at Noodle Pudding on a Saturday evening. We were told that no reservations were necessary, and waited 45 mins. for a table. The sevice and food were excelent, but at the bottom of the menu were the words, "cash only." I was directed to a fruit and vegitable mkt. with an ATM while we were waiting for our meal. It was a little smaller than expected and a bit noisier by the bar. Upper east side moved to Brooklyn

Our first time eating in Brooklyn and it was great. It was hard to find parking but that was the only negative. We were promptly seated within 5 minutes on a Saturday evening. We had lasagna and a four meats pasta which were both delicious. The restaurant is only a four block walk from the Brooklyn Promenade which is another plus! I will definitely go back.

My husband and I totally love this place, in fact he proposed to me at Noodle Pudding in 2001. The pork chop is to die for and the simple pomodoro sauce is excellent. The owner is wonderful and always remembers his customers. Since my husband and I moved from Bklyn Heights to Jersey, we take special trips every so often to this Bklyn gem.

It's hard to imagine perfection but Noodle Pudding comes very, very close. Warm, unpretentious, homey, "up" and always delicious, it's the perfect antidote to whatever's making you totally crazy. Try the Frico (a savory 4 cheese asparagus wrap) appetizer, the Short Ribs or the melt-in-your mouth lasagna as a main course and any dessert that hasn't already been devoured right off the menu. If that doesn't make you a regular patron (an unlikely event), then the owner, Tony and the excellent wait staff who make you feel like family, will. A very special place!

Walking in on a cold fall night, it is not hard to understand why this popular Brooklyn Heights neighborhood restaurant is a big hit. Noodle Pudding simply oozes warmth, good Italian food and friendly service. The prices are more than affordable, and you are dining in a romantic golden colored candle lit room.

The menu focuses on classic dishes with an adventurous twist. The pappardelle with venison ragu was simple but yet so flavorful. Although tiramisu was ordered on every other table, and looked very yummy, at the end of our meal I was simply too full to try.

Now, if only someone could explain whats up with the name of the place?

Reasonably priced, anything but a trendy crowd and a romantic atmosphere, made for a wonderful experience at Noodle Pudding! MUST try the mashed eggplant and ricotta pasta dish...absolutely to die for!

Awesome. I love this place. I work in Metrotech and take clients here all the time. This place rocks. Sad- no Credit Cards, but the Osso Bucco makes up for it!

Though its name suggests that Noodle Pudding may serve Jewish comfort food, fans of this Italian eatery have learned that the moniker is really a translation of a typical Neapolitan dessert, migliaccio, which also happens to be the owner's…
