Noodles Italian Cafe & Sushi Bar, which operated for more than three decades in North Naples off Pine Ridge Road, transitioned to Giuseppe and the Lion and will continue serving Italian cuisine and sushi. New owner Joseph Sutherland and his father-in-law, Leo Hertzog, purchased the property from the previous owners in September and since have been working on renovating the space, all without having to close their dining room for a single day.  

Sutherland had a successful career as an executive in the eyecare industry for 25 years.
