General Info:
Welcome to Saucy Noodle For over four decades the Saucy Noodle Restaurante has been a Denver landmark at the same location at 727 South University Boulevard. The little spot, known to locals throughout the Washington Park, Cherry Creek and Bonnie Brae districts was originally known as Jim Sano's when it was purchased by the Badis family in 1964. Sam Badis, a former Big Band Leader and Denver entrepreneur, held court with a gregarious smile and warm welcome and served up what is arguably the best pizza and pasta in town. Traveling the country in the '60's and 70's Sam would frequently buy unique antiques in small towns and haul them back to the Saucy Noodle to adorn the restaurant's, now famous, red velvet walls. When the family adopted a new name for their thriving business ; The Saucy Noodle, they added the restaurant's trademark red and white canopy and adopted a slogan that lives on: "If you don't like garlicgo home!" The family restaurant became home for family, friends and local celebrities, who frequented the Saucy Noodle seven nights a week. More often than not, the "Noodle, " as it is sometimes affectionately called, also played host to international celebrities visiting the Mile High City. As the Badis family grew with children and grandchildren, they too became a part of the fabric that is the Saucy Noodle. When it was time for Sam Badis to pass on the baton, he did so with pride, naming granddaughter Erin and her husband Nathan Markham to carry on the tradition. Erin and Nathan Markham acquired the Saucy Noodle Restaurante, expanded the space to double its size and carry on the family tradition while serving up a menu of favorite Italian dishes from original recipes. On most evening's you'll find Erin, Nathan and their family holding court in grandpa's little restaurant, welcoming guests, managing quality and service and preparing their next little restaurateurs to carry on.

Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Saucy Noodle. You’ve done the world some good today.

If you dont' like overpriced and bland - go home!

Not only was there no garlic in the spaghetti w/clams, but I am not sure they used salt or pepper either. I would also suggest bringing your own Italian dressing as the ""house"" variety is pure oil with a little pepper.\r \r They may have also forgotten they are members of the ""service"" industry. Should you attend dinner here, do not expect anything special from the staff. No substitutions please.\r \r A bi... view more

Awful service

The service here is so awful, it doesn't matter what the food tastes like. The server we had acted like we were a burden when we had a question about the menu, and she took a good 15 minutes to get our check. And the food is not nearly as good as it's cracked up to be. I love garlic, but they use so much it masks any other flavors. I won't be dining here anymore.

Best of Denver

""The Noodle"" is by far the best place to get your Italian fix in Denver. A friendly atmosphere coupled with hypnotic sauces creates an obsession for garlic only the vampires of Forks, WA could resist. When you go ask to be seated in a Harrington's section, it doesn't matter which one you get they are all a delight.
