Just moved to town and wanted to find a place that wasn't fast food or pizza. Chose this place and was NOT disappointed. The food is all home/hand made and the owner and her staff couldn't be more genuinely sweet and kind. The food and everything about this place is incredible. Will be getting food from the Naughty Noodle a LOT ?? I called in an order for myself and my family, but upon arrival to the restaurant wanted to change my order. The owner (who is also the chef) kindly told me she would make me whatever I wanted, even though she had already started my original order. (I ended up not changing my order as to not waste food) On the way out, she saw me looking at the desserts and asked if I would like anything. I told her no as I didn't know she served dessert and had just stopped at a bakery 20 minutes prior to get some sweet treats. She handed me a piece of brownie cheesecake (which by the way was handmade and delicious) and told me it was on the house because she wanted me to come back again. Her personality and the gesture alone was amazing. She was so sweet and willing to accommodate, I would have (and will) go back time and time again, regardless of the complimentary, delicious cheesecake. (Also, for reference, my boyfriend and son both got the mac & cheese with chicken and bacon, I got chicken fettuccine with sassy sauce *a mixture of marinara and alfredo sauce*, and I can't remember what my mom got. Some sort of lasagna with alfredo sauce) There were no leftovers, which is unusual for us. Every one of us cleared our plates. I HIGHLY recommend ??
Hand made pasta and delicious sauce. From manicotti to spaghetti and lasagna rolls. Open Wed-Sat for fine in!
Such a gem hidden in the heart of independence. This was by far one of the best pasta meals I have had. So fresh and delicious. We will be repeat customers.
A gem of pasta making. Flavorful cozy and friendly. The taste was very delicious and looking forward to taste the rest of the menu.
Nice quality ingredients, all food was yummy. We specifically visited in Sept and greatly appreciated our inquiries to some food allergies. They really went above and beyond to accommodate us. Such friendly staff, will come again when in the area!
We haven't been inside because our first visit to The Naughty Noodle was during the pandemic for take out. But it has always been recommended by our neighbors. Noodles are made fresh, from fettuccine to mac and cheese to lasagna. The lasagna rolls were delicious and a unique spin on this classic dish. Includes side salad and focaccia bread. Cheesecake is also delicious. Definitely recommend!

Tasty dishes served up hot. Menu has well marked v, vg, and gf options!!! Bread is made next door. Cheesecake made in house. Pasta was fabulous. Had no trouble parking on Tuesday night. My Google maps directions weren't very specific. And the signage didn't jump right out at me. If you're coming from Monmouth hang a left on Main street and destination will be just before the end of the block on the right.
Walking into the nice, quaint, Italian-esque atmosphere of this place started an evening of what would be some of the best food I've ever had. From the daily housemade pasta to the authentic sauces, my wife and I had a wonderful culinary experience. The breads are made fresh at the bakery located two doors down -- it was a fantastic highlight to the meal. The meal started with a colorful, spring mix salad and ended with amazing housemade cheesecake. We just barely left and I'm already excited about our next visit.
We are in the business of creating memories, savory italian food, and smiles. Bring your family into The Naughty Noodle in Independence and allow us to craft memories that will be sure to leave you smiling for weeks.
