Noah’s Ark

The Original Lacona Family Restaurant Since 1946

Noah’s Ark’s Goal

Since 1946, it’s been Noah’s Ark’s goal to provide the residents of the Des Moines area with a different kind of dining experience. Starting from very humble beginnings, we have slowly evolved into this city’s destination Italian eatery. We provide you with a great atmosphere, perfect for starting your day with a lunch with co-workers or friends or a night out on the town. So stop in today and try our legendary pizza, iconic homemade bread from our newly added bakery or high quality imported Italian semolina pasta. We also have prime steak, fresh seafood, chicken, and great desserts with superb coffee drinks. Come see why we’ve been in business for over 65 years!

Check out Our Menu

Noah’s Ark is one of Des Moines’ oldest and most popular restaurants, but we had to start somewhere. Coming from humble beginnings, Noah’s Ark opened on New Year’s Eve 1946 as a very small lunch counter with limited seating. Our only goal was to serve great home-style food and introduce Neapolitan style pizza to Des Moines and Central Iowa.
