Good Pasta

For a reliable past meal, this is a safe bet. More than one location, so they must be doing something right; been in business for a while. Clean; easy atmosphere, not stuffy.

Great restaurant in a sea of great restaurants. We were looking for the ultimate clam chowder but they were closed so we went to their sister restaurant. A couple blocks always holy cow. Quaint with a cozy outside patio makes you feel like your in Italy. Best seafood I had a beet salad yes a beet salad but it was... More

The half-share pasta, half-share salad special made for a good lunch on the run. Nothing special but it satisfied my spaghetti and meatballs jones ... quickly and cheaply.

Skip the trendy, hip Italian restaurant across the street (overpriced). This is a quaint, quiet, family owned restaurant with very reasonable prices. The food is excellent. From the beet salad to the mushroom, truffle pizza. They let you enjoy your meal and chat like you are at home in your kitchen and don't rush you out. If you can, try... More

Nice place with great atmosphere and cozy patio. Food is pretty good and inexpensive here. They have veggie options so everyone will find something to eat. Portions are not big but they won't leave you hungry.

We ate at Little Napoli twice. The food was great. Some people say that the garlic bread is not worth it, but we thought it was great. The bread itself is quite good, and it is served with a spicy tomato sauce. (It is not over powering with garlic, so if that's what you want, you'll be disappointed.) We had... More

Little Napoli was great. The atmosphere and the service were impeccable and the food was delicious. But the real draw to the restaurant is its location. It is in walking distance from practically every hotel in Carmel, and usually isn't full. The food was good, however, it was also very basic, if you're looking for top tier cuisine, hop across...

My wife and I showed up around 8:30 on a recent Saturday night and we were seated right away. I can’t guarantee you are going to have the same luck on a Saturday but if you shoot for a later time without a reservation, you’re more likely to get a table. We ordered a bottle of Rose which worked perfectly... More

Good food and large portions. Cesar salad was refreshing. Not the greatest I've ever had, but good. Skip the garlic bread. Don't know why they're famous for it - its average at best. The chicken parmigiana was fantastic. And a really good vegetable soup. The outdoor patio allows dogs. Service was perfect. Thank you, Becca!

The food was fine, the service was fine. It got us off our feet for a while. The wine was fair to middling. There was nothing bad about the experience. Just nothing special about it.
