Noodle Pudding

Restaurants, Italian Brooklyn Heights
6 Love It
Save it
This quiet street in deepest Brooklyn Heights might seem an unlikely place to find such a riotous range of Italian cooking—yet here it is. Strozzapreti pasta with eggplant, tomato and ricotta is a sassy blast straight from Sicily. Rabbit that’s braised, then roasted with vegetables and herbs and served with polenta, tastes of Tuscany, and schiaffoni all’amatriciana (fat, cylindrical noodles in a sauce of tomato, pancetta and onion) is a glorious postcard from Rome. All in all, it’s a swell trip.

I usually hate waiting a long time for a table, but Noodle Pudding was absolutely worth the wait.  I came here on a recommendation and hate one of the best Italian meals of my life.  The rigatoni with pumpkin, sausage, and mozzarella was the perfect autumn pasta dish - and Noodle Pudding has some of the best garlic bread I've ever had.  It's perfectly cheesy, flaky, and flavorful, and though I could go on and on about the bread alone the whole experience was worth it.  

The best way to have dinner here is to go and put your name in 30 minutes early, then to grab a drink at a nearby bar (there are several on the same street) and then go back and hover near the restaurant entrance.  It's not an organized process, but trust me - the food is definitely worth it.
