The Saucy Noodle Ristorante closes after nearly six decades


The Saucy Noodle Ristorante — a Denver restaurant known for its slogan, “If you don’t like garlic… go home!” — closed in August. The Saucy Noodle operated at its 727 S. University Blvd. location for nearly six decades.

According to a message on the restaurant’s website, the closure is attributed to an eviction by the landlord.

Westword reported that a Certificate of Demolition Eligibility Application notice was posted on the restaurant’s front door, and that the building was purchased by a property developer on July 15 this year.

“For 57 years, we have had the privilege of sharing with you our family history, recipes and oversized meatballs, and we are so grateful to have had this opportunity to cement ourselves as a part of Denver’s history, while meeting so many wonderful people along the way,” the message on the Saucy Noodle’s website reads. “We will never forget the many thousands of memories that have been made here, and we are endlessly grateful to have shared them with you.”
