“Just the wine bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Vino Napoli is the wine bar, wine shop and tasting room located next door to Little Napoli. The wines featured at Vino Napoli are specially selected from partners and close friends. All wines offered are available for retail sale and for tasting purposes.
We never made it to the restaurant but the wine bar was spacious, and carried wines from PEPE, the Monterey area and a lot of Antinori brands from Italy. They serve a number of various flights and even has a great appetizer menu.
Light appetizers are offered. Vino Napoli is a local hangout after work where friends meet up before or after dinner. The tables at Vino Napoli are communal, and guests sit together and converse about wines and other topics of interest.
It's a good place to hang and have a before dinner as well as after diner drink, even if you are not going to the restaurant next door. Very casual and comfortable for 6 or more people at the larger tables.

“Great Italian food, nice vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Good Italian food from owner and former Hoboken resident so you know you're getting real-deal Italian food. Good value, nice portions, great wine selection.

“Very tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Very nice Italian lunch. I had a great pizza and my wife was very happy with a soup and pasta combo. We ordered garlic bread to start, but the main courses were enough food for an entire meal. It was very crowded when we got there and therefore the service was on the slow side, but the food quality made up for it. Everyone around us looked quite pleased with their food.

The only downside was the time it took for find parking. Highly recommended.

“Delicious Italian but get there early”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We learned in Carmel you really need reservations everywhere if you plan to eat later than 5:30. This place got really crowded after we were there awhile but we were lucky enough to get in before 6 p.m. on a weeknight. Excellent food, varied menu and excellent wait staff.
