Husband and I, spending winter in Carmel. We've been trying many restaurants. We were introduced to this one a few years ago by friends, they are from Sicily. They know Italian food. Great service, food, lobster and crab ravioli, husband chose Grandma's meat balls and spaghetti. Both excellent. Incredible win choices. We'll be back before we go home.

We love visiting Carmel-by-the-sea, it's one of our favorite places in the world. We already have several favorite restaurants there and tend to frequent those. But, we were thinking of trying a new restaurant and had a hankering for Italian. So, wth no expectation, we walked into Little Napoli on Dolores Street and were so glad we did. My wife... More

Only one night in Carmel and so many choices for dinner but we settled on Little Napoli and am glad we did! It was very busy and there was a bit of a wait but well worth it. The service was excellent as was the food - especially enjoyed the truffle gnocchi for appetizers. The owner, Pepe, was charming and... More

We love the ambiance and the food here. Great, friendly service! Everything we ordered was delicious- hobo stew, smoked salmon, spaghetti, carbonara. We've dined here before and we will be back!

This restaurant was supposed to be the best Italian food in Carmel. It was mediocre at best. This is a good place to take kids but there are no bargains here. This is not an inexpensive meal.

Strong Italian flavour - lots of photos on the walls of Italian celebs. Food OK server a bit over the top for us but did a good job. Sat near a door used by staff who constantly left it open causing a draft. Expensive for what it was.

The restaurant has a lovely little courtyard which we decided to sit in. We both had pasta dishes that were very tasty. Would recommend

Little Napoli has a great ambiance. We are there in a beautiful Sunday morning which was perfect on their patio. The Osso buco ravioli was wonderful. My husband had cheese ravioli, but after tasting mine, he wished he had ordered the same. Our waiter was not very friendly. About half way through the meal he disappeared. A couple of other... More

The service was the most disappointing. We arrived at 8:30 and they were to close at 10:00, which should have been plenty of time, but we could tell the server was not happy that we were there and that kind of ruined it for us. We felt rushed to order and when we had questions about the menu, the server... More
