While driving down Hwy 1 with friends, we stopped in Carmel to eat dinner, no reservations on a busy weekend but the staff was great and was able to seat us quickly. Best of all the food was great as was the atmosphere in the restaurant. There was a car show in town which was a bonus! Thanks for... read more

We visited Pebble Beach and drove to Carmel for lunch and discovered this quaint little restaurant. The pizza and salads where excellent and the tri-color canelloni was outstanding.

This is in the heart of Carmel on Ocean street. A very nice, very Italian restaurant . We always try to go there when visiting from the Valley.. We have taken many people there and are never disappointed.

Reservations recommended. Always busy. Wait staff very friendly. I always enjoy their pizza but pasta is also very good. The bread is also good.

We dined with friends who had eaten here numerous times and raved about Little Napoli. We were not disappointed! Everything about this little place is "On Mark!" We have traveled in Italy for years and find Little Napoli to be up to the "Italy Standard." The service was spot on and the food was excellent in every way.

We were told a out this place ny our inn keepers and were delightfully suprised! The atmosphere was like what I would imagine a bistro in the Amalfi Coast to be like. Lots of art on the walls with a warm, cozy fireplace going. The veal Marsala was the best I have had in a long time. My whole family... More

We needed a night that was casual and easy, and Little Napoli filled the bill. Delicious chianti classico accompanied a tasty Caesar salad and tri-color canelloni. Perfect, low-key evening with a very friendly waiter.

We've eaten here several times and always have had a great experience. This trip we walked in at 6pm and ordered a pizza to go. Spicy Salami, mozz, basil, and red pepper flakes. Absolutely fantastic as we sat on a bench and whale watched near Stewarts Cove.
