Good restaurant

We enjoyed our dinner at Little Napoli. The pasta dishes were tasty and ample. The restaurant was rather noisy, though, and the service seemed a bit rushed. The waiter brought our entrees before we had finished our salads, and we got the feeling that they wanted to turn over the table quickly. We... read more

I had veal scallopini which was excellent (the sauce had a wonderful flavor) and my husband had cioppino with lots of seafood, spaghetti and a great spicy sauce.

This pizza is incredible, mushrooms, mozzarella, no sauce but who needs sauce when the pizza tastes this good! And a very friendly and helpful staff. Downtown Carmel.

We had lunch there today while my cousin was visiting from out of town. The service was very good but the food was just okay. We ordered the calamari appetizer which was really crispy and fried just right. The main course came very quickly and we didn't have a chance to finish the yummy calamari! I ordered a pizza which...

We love Italian food and this restaurant did not disappoint. Loved listening to Sinatra while dining on ravioli and osso buco. The house red blend (Pepe) was good. Overall, a good experience.

Real Italian food! Not Nouvelle. Spectacular Bolognese Pappardelli and Lasagna. Wonderful garlic bread. Large portions. Great sauce. Felt like I was back in Rome. Very much typical of that area of Italy's cuisine...and my mom's recipes!

My wife and I went here for our anniversay this weekend and I have to say, there are better choices around Carmel IMHO. The ambience was very nice. They gave us a nice table in the rear next to a window. The noise level is pretty high as it is a high energy sort of place. Our server was pretty... More

We always eat here at least once - and always have the tri-color. Highly recommend! It is a very small restaurant on a side-street. Cozy atmosphere - the tables are close together. They have another larger facility in Carmel under a different name.

Little Napoli is Carmel at its best, simple Italian dishes, fresh, seasonal, great wine selection, seafood, pasta, gnocchi you name it. For small private dinners there is a separate room behind the main restaurant ideal for a group.
