my husband and I, along with our dog, enjoyed a wonderful meal on the patio. It was a Wednesday evening and there was no else on the patio, which is lovely. My husband had a bolognese dish and I had a pizza. Both meals were delicious and the service was great!

My partner and I savor our time and food at this warm, intimate and genuinely friendly establishment. They have a great selection of antipasti, and many classic pasta dishes. The owner of Little Napoli, Mr. Rich Pepe, has created a beautiful icon in this small town of restaurants and art galleries. There is not a bad seat in the house,... More

After visiting Italy in 2013, little Napoli took us back to the great family atmosphere, free flowing wine and large portion sizes that demand a to-go box. This restaurant has nailed the Italian style dining and the food is at the top of its class. We loved our night out and would love to visit again when in need of... More

We really enjoyed our dinner in the courtyard. We wished we had our dog (not really), but two other tables had well-behaved dogs dining with them. This restaurant's atmosphere matches the vibe of Carmel. Appetizers, bread and entrees were all excellent! Service was attentive, and it was a relaxed dining experience. We are looking forward to dining at Chef Pepe's... More

If the weather is nice, eating in their beautiful courtyard is a must. My wife and I had the luncheon special, half a pizza and a small salad. Everything was great and the service was attentive but not overly so. With a bottle of wine we turned lunch into a leisurely 2 1/2 hour affair. Prices are fairly reasonable for... More

When visiting the Carmel area for the first time this summer, we were trying to figure out where to go for dinner. We came upon this place, and yes - I am a fan of Little Napoli and I would return, but it was not INCREDIBLE, especially for what you would expect for these prices (I know - we are... More

We came upon this restaurant by accident while on a tour of Carmel. The aromas prompted us to return for a very pleasurable, casual, lunch. Staff was very accommodating, making good recommendations and checking in without being obtrusive or rushing the meal. The truffled gnocchi "appetizer" is outrageously delicious and pretty sizable . Try the "Mezza Mezza" (half and half)... More

Great Italian restaurant with nice menu and excellent service. Beautiful little outdoor patio for those with dogs. A gem among many outstanding dining options in Carmel.
