    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    The place is has a nice small town feel in the middle of Aurora. We were there for Valentine's Day so they were extremely busy. The place was very noisy, but not in a bad way. Because of the noise and tight accomodations it is kid-friendly. Salads are not included in the price. One can be added on for just shy of $5 for a saucer size or $9 for a large. The food was marginal as my creamy sauce was not blended well and had separated. I love my pasta but this just didn't make the cut for me. You'd be better off at the Olive Garden for the money. If you're looking for a nice neighborhood restaurant with friendly people this is the place. We've been there 3 times in 10 years and have had the same reaction each time. Not good, not bad..

    I took a large group here a long time ago and had been meaning to get back, and I'm glad I did. Menu is very nice, with lots of good dishes to choose from, and somewhat reasonably priced as well. The place is big enough that you won't have to wait to get a table, and service was friendly and efficient. I'll come back here again.

    After several always-perfect dinners here, this has become our favorite Italian restaurant in the Metro area. Their roasted red pepper marinara brings tears to my eyes. Their seafood is always fresh and perfectly cooked. Best Italian sausage I've had since I left the northeast. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

    The Bent Noodle once again proved itself as a great restaurant for New Years Eve. It is a great restaurant for any occasion. The restaurant was busy, the help was great, the ambience was exceptional. All great things you like to see in a restaurant. Their menu changed just slightly from last year with their NYE specials, but their menu is so diverse that they have just about anything to satisfy the most picky eater. It is a great restaurant to visit and you will not be disappointed.

This has become one of our favorite restaurants in Denver. Each time we try something new on the menu and EVERYTHING has been outstanding. We will return again and again.

    We love the Bent Noodle! Misto and Ceasar salads with bread was a great start to our meal. Our server was very friendly and when we asked for an old favorite entree, Chicken Pepperoni that was no longer on the menu, the chef made it for us anyway. The Supreme Ziti is also very good. The Chianti was a nice compliment to a lovely evening at the Bent Noodle with our friends!

    Although the food was very good, it was hard to determine if the service provider was new or just having a bad night. Once we told him we weren't in a hurry, he seemed to think it meant slow down everything; bringing drinks to the table, filling the wine glasses, removing salad plates before the entree arrived, etc. At most restaurants, the waiter is right there to fill your wine glass back up and to see if you are ready for another glass or bottle. As indicated above, everything was in slow motion. The quality of the food was justify another visit; however there are so many Italian restaurants around, it will be difficult to come back again.

    Went to this place on a date and we had some mixed reviews on the food. I don't think this place was bad, but it wasn't amazing or anything either. Compared to other Italian restaurants we've been to, it doesn't rank very high. Overall I would say this place is pretty average. Not bad, but not amazing. I don't know if we'll go back, simply because there are better options for Italian food elsewhere that aren't that far away (for instance, Maggiano's is a great Italian restaurant, or if you're looking specifically for pizza go to Pizza Republica for some really delicious brick oven pizza).
