We visited the week before Christmas. Very cold that week. There were 5 of us plus our 2 year old grandson. We did get seated right away accept we sat right by the doors leading to the alley between the buildings (the other building is where the rest rooms are). Unfortunately, every time either patrons or staff walked in and... More

The food and the service were excellent! Simple items such as their garlic bread and spaghetti with meatballs were the best I've ever had. Accommodating to gluten free diet requirements. Nice selection and friendly staff.

Oh this was such a good find thanks to its many wonderful reviews! We came for a late lunch and were seated right away. The waitress was super-human as she seemed to be taking care of the entire restaurant by herself yet made it look effortless. The food!!!! You must start with the famous Garlic Bread which arrives warm, soft... More

After walking all around Carmel, opted for this Italian restaurant because I fancied that type of food. The quality of the food was ok, not great. Service was slow even though it was not full. It is a convenient restaurant but I am sure there are better ones around. The Gnocchi was great, the Mozzarella in Truffle Oil was good,... More

I have been going to Little Napoli since it opened many years ago. The menu offerings and food preparation are consistently good. You will need to visit more than once in order to explore the menu! Make a reservation as this is a very popular place. There is a wine bar next door.

Good food and a nice atmosphere at night. A menu filled with a variety of food but could have slightly larger portions for the price paid. Four family members costs us 265.00 with 4 drinks.

We enjoyed our cozy table in front of the fireplace. The food was like in Napoli, including the pizza.

We have been to Little Napoli at least 10 times over the years and it was always pretty good. We went Christmas Eve and the service and atmosphere were great but the food was eh. The carpacio and Risotto were good but the garlic bread was really not at all great and the pasta was also cold. It is cozy... More

The pasta dishes were excellent. The wait was shorter that we thought and service was fast and attentive. Would recommend for couples, family or friends out seeking great Italian food.

I have lived in the area for over 60 years, and I do like to try different restaurants. This is part of a chain of restaurants, according to their business card. Prices are as they must be in expensive Carmel, so no problems there. Food was OK, but nothing special. Service was slow and unexceptional, on a slow night. We... More
