On our half dozen visits to Carmel, we have eaten in many of their fine restaurants and have enjoyed them all. Little Napoli is the only restaurant that we return to on each of our visits. The food and service is always excellent and the atmosphere has that old Italian charm!

We stopped in for lunch or just after and while it's quaint, service was not that great even after we got someone to pay attention to us. Food was delicious. Would go back for a second time.

So glad we ate here again. It had been a while since we were in the area but so glad we returned to Little Napoli. Food, value, Service, Dog Friendly, and charming. Our Waiter was super nice and attentive and the Host was terrific too. Excellent for a casual Lunch on the patio (Pizza, Gnocchi) plus they have a wine... More

The best thing about that place is their romantic patio. Food was ok; the low was the salmon carpaccio, sliced way too thick, maybe even just pulled out of a grocery store retail package; prosciutto pizza was on the heavy side with a tad too much mozzarella; but those who had the veal ravioli & baked salmon raved about their...

This is a very popular restaurant on the Carmel tourist trail. Looks great from the outside and was buzzing with a great atmosphere. Nice menu and choice of wines. The food was very tasty but really was too heavy and very expensive. The quality of service was average and maybe typical of very popular tourist destinations. I found the service... More

I had the seafood stew and it was delicious. The fresh tomato and barrata was a nice potion and terrific. The tables are a little close together, so it really isn't for a romantic evening.

We just happened upon this place and they were very busy but it was well worth the almost hour wait. The Caprese Burrata appetizer was wonderful. They don't advertise, but several of their pasta selections come in a half size which is perfect because the full size was huge. You could definitely share if you had a guest with similar... More

The music and the delicious aromas wafting out the door were too tempting to ignore. We were celebrating our anniversary and looking for a nice, unpretentious place for dinner and this was our pick. Great service and one of those menus where everything sounds good! We ordered the melon and prosciutto appetizer--great melon, but a bit skimpy on the prosciutto.... More

Excellent Italian restaurant in the heart of Carmel. We started off with garlic bread and moscato. The garlic bread was excellently prepared and crispy. The moscato was sweet and crisp, an excellent choice on a warm afternoon. The ravioli was delicious. Some of the best eaten in the US. The spaghetti and meatball was very good. The marinara was perfectly... More
