This is a lively location in Carmel with a knowledgeable wait staff. At our table of four, the kitchen overcooked a steak, fixed the lamb chops to perfection and missed on the sauce of one of our pastas. Wine list is varied between California and Italy and had many reasonably priced Italian selections, California selections were overpriced

So we saw this restaurant on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. We knew we had to try it. It didnt let us down. The food was absolutely amazing. We had the seafood dish, the white truffle gnocchi, the garlic bread and we had to have the bufalo mozzarella caprese. They also participate in the wine walk program. So if you do... More

This place was an excellent find for our late weeknight dinner. They have an adjoining wine bar next door, which was a very nice place to wait for our table. We tried some meatball appetizers, which were excellent, and the wine selection was very good as well. My wife and I both ordered lasagna - an excellent choice as well.... More

We ate here for the second time and really loved it. We had the fried artichoke appetizer, gnocchi appetizer, Chicken Parmigiana, Spaghetti and Meatballs (kids) with salad. The food was delicious. The gnocchi was especially great, light as a feather with a rich, Gorgonzola cream sauce. The place is cozy and service was good. I thought the prices were reasonable... More

My family drives down to Carmel for my birthday every year, and each year I need to choose among all the wonderful places to eat where I will go for my birthday meal. This year I chose Little Napoli, as my family had been served consistently great meals there over the previous years. I had a generous steak with sauteed... More

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant a few days ago, and we left the place wishing we didn't go there in the first time. After we were sat down at our table, we waited and waited and waited for someone to stop by to acknowledge our presence, but that didn't happened. Tired and offended by the situation,... More

The wife's friend told her about an Italian place she had discovered in Carmel and the wife thought that a gift certificate would be a perfect Xmas present. So, Sunday we put the top down and headed for the coast. Well as luck would have it we found free parking on the street right in front and in we went... More

We really liked this place. Glad we got reservations, it is very popular and other people had to wait outside for a while. the wait staff was excellent and we liked everything we ordered. we had appetizers, wine, shared a salad with smoke salmon had main dishes and were too full for dessert.

I had low expectations for Italian out in Cali compared to what I am used to where I grew up. My friend and I both ordered the lunch special that was half a pizza and either a salad or soup. It was actually pretty good, and reasonably priced. Our server was very nice and attentive, all in all decent food,... More
