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

Loved this restaurant for dinner! The atmosphere is fun and authentic and the food was great. Loved the garlic cheese bread & chicken parmesan. Get the house wine!

We enjoy the pasta dishes at this restaurant. The eggplant parmesan is my favorite. The spaghetti with meatballs is also delightful. Their caesar salad is fresh with sardines. They serve a nice glass of wine too. The service is usually friendly and food is served within a reasonable time. If offered cheese bread, there is a charge for the bread... More

My wife and I recently had dinner at Little Napoli and thought the meal was average. We had a reservation but arrived a little early. They told us they could not seat us early because “they were on schedule” and suggested we go to their wine bar next door to have a drink and they would come and get us... More

Food was good, service was a little slow. Took some time to catch the eye of the waitress so we could ask for our check. Great location in the midst of all the shops in the village of Carmel.

After a few minutes in this restaurant my husband and I looked at each other and said "This is BETTER then Naples!" We shared a pizza, Caesar salad, and sorbet, all of which were beautifully done. I saw several other dishes go by that looked spectacular and made me wish I hadn't eaten a huge lunch. The wait staff is... More
