13 Sep

Celebrating 20 years in their Naples, FL community, Matt and Seth Benevento-Berman are excited about the impact their restaurant has on the community. Noodles Italian Cafe and Sushi Bar offers scrumptious Italian fare, as well as an exquisite array of sushi options. Diners are treated to live music, seasonal events, and an atmosphere that’s unparalleled.

Noodles’ website says it best:

” Over the past 19 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?  “
