The place is inside an office building on the first floor and you will have to walk past some offices to get to a door, which has a huge blackboard right next to the entrance informing you about the daily specials.
Inside the office/cafe/restaurant is a counter where you order. I ordered cheese ravioli that came with a slice of Ciabatta bread and a green salad.
The salad was fresh and the vinaigrette nicely balanced neither too oily nor too acidic and a lovely addition to the fresh, quality greens and flavorful (!) tomatoes. I am a vegetarian and this salad is the reason for an overall 4-star rating.
The ravioli were high-domed noodles with lots of creamy, tasty filling. The filling was a bit fatty and the flavor a little subdued but overall some of the best cheese filling I ever had in Alabama. I am making pasta from scratch (admittedly rather rarely) and I always eat my noodles slightly undercooked (think 9.5 min when the box says 10-12 min) that said these noodles were great in taste but cold and leathery. The filling and the taste of the noodle dough elevated the Ravioli from a 1 in execution to a 2.5 star and the rich but unobtrusive tomato basil sauce pushed the bad pasta into a 3 star rating.
The ciabatta was of high quality but unfortunately had been roasted in an oven that needs cleaning. The bread had the taste of a smoky oven.
I will be back hoping for more and more successful adventures into barenaked noodles. 4 stars is a bit high but this could be an easy 5 star if the pasta would be executed correctly and the bread would be less smoky.
