Des Moines Worst Restaurant? Noah's Ark Ristorante

I have eaten at Noah's over 20 times. I love Italian food and I am married to a true Italian princess. Why have I eaten at Noah's so many times if I do not like it there? Simple, my boss is friends with Jim, Noah's son and he bring us all there every once and a while. I am hardly able to choke down the raviolis or spaghetti as it is worse than what I would expect to find in a can. The deserts are great....they should... view more

a comeback?

I must consistently go on a different night from the complalners. I was a regular at Noah's until we moved, then have come back several times since. Never had a problem with service or with the food.\r \r I will say that, since Noah really isn't in charge anymore (as said, he's no longer young), the management is going downhill, something for which I would certainly call Jim on the carpet. \r \r Attitudes have change... view more

Hepatitis from uncleanliness closes Noah's Ark Restaurant

So, if you enjoy waiting forever to get served by waitresses who look and dress like meth addicts and hang around in the back and on the roof smoking and goofing around....\r \r If you like to get hair and other nasty items in the food when you finally get it....\r \r If you like eating somewhere that was shut down for two weeks because of extreme uncleanliness which resulted in an outbreak of hepatitus.....\r \r If ... view more

I happen to know ""weasel1"" (the 5 star reviewer) is actualy Noah Lacona's SON Jim who spends all his time either golfing or yelling at the waitresses.\r \r Noah is 80+ years old, he no longer gives any bonuses, paid holiday time, if you need maternity time your fired, he is OPENLY ra cist and will not hire you or will fire you if you are:\r 1.

shocked and appaled at Noah Lacona actions in public.

I have been coming to Noahs Ark for 40 some years and what i saw shocked me to the point that i will never return and i have also passed on to others what i witnessed. I believe it was in the month of april or first part of may,a friend of mine from Texas came to visit and i wanted her to experiance dinning at Noah Laconas restaurant. While we ate i told her the story of Noah and Sally and their history of the restau... view more

Great Italian Restaurant

The food is excellent!! Even on the busy nights, the food is worth the wait! It's refreshing to be in a relaxing setting and not rushed so you have time to eat and enjoy yourself. The prices are great for fine dinning! I will always keep Noah's in mind for exceptional food and atmosphere!!

Noah's is soon back in business

The other reviewer from March 2006 is bogus, as the restaurant was not even open in March. There was a fire in January, and they are only now reopening. This is a wonderful family restaurant, with moderate prices and consistently good food and service.
