If you're looking for the real thing, then look no further. Dishes are delicious yet mostly simple with a focus on fresh ingredients. Exactly how a good trattoria is in Italy! I go there on average twice a month and have been doing so for the last three years. I do dislike the long wait and hence I tend to come early or late. I am also quite happy about the service. Yes it can be a bit chaotic at times, or the bill may take a little longer. But as I am here to enjoy my evening and not on a strict time schedule, that never bothers me too much. Iprefer that over waiters that take plates away before you finish or bring bills within seconds of finishing your last dish.Anyway, I am a fan of the place!

The food at Noodle Pudding is sometimes serviceable, sometimes good, never great, but that's fine (it is brooklyn heights after all). But the service here is a huge problem. I've sat at tables, I've sat at the bar -- it doesn't matter: I get ignored, I can't get the check, food never comes, I can't get salt and pepper, I can't get cheese...and on and on. It's slim pickins in the heights (Keth McNally where are you!?!?) but still, I have my pride Noodle Pudding. You need to fix this, or i'm shuffling off to Cobble Hill for my pasta from now on.

the seater treated us as if they were doing us a favor to give a table. the waiter was "super cool" - this is not meant in a good way, basking in the glow of his coolness. why did we come here? the chicken was good. the attitude terrible.

I love this place. But if your idea of good Italian is salty calamari with lots of breading and a goopy Caesar salad then go to Olive Garden. It aint that kind of place. Noodle Pudding does some things amazingly well. I love the roast chicken with pancetta, the grilled sardines, the pork chops or almost any fish dish. Try the specials. I think they actually feature the quality ingredients in an almost magical way. But adjust your expectations - it's not a Sicilian pasta and red sauce place. I rarely order the pasta dishes here. Not because they're not good, but because they're really primi dishes - modest portions (and prices for the most part) and if you have an appetite, you should order an entree. The negative comments on the wait and crowded atmosphere are fair, but once you're seated you're in for a treat.

I'd heard so much about the place that I was expecting a rare dining experience. Halfway through the meal, I was sorry I hadn't gone to Teresa's or Tutt Cafe around the corner. The seater was extremely rude and contradictory. The calamari had a strident piquancy that made it unpleasant for both of us. The fluke was fresh and well prepared, but the osso bucco at 34 dollars was dry and bland. I didn't enjoy the dining experience at all. I do not recommend it.

i'm not the type of person who goes to the same place twice, or who writes reviews. I moved to the area a month ago, and i go almost every week. it's cosy, food is great, nice atmosphere, and the waiters are very friendly. i took a group of 13 people there, and the night went very smoothly. Highly recomended!
