Having worked in hospitality for 20 years, I am a very tough critic. This place had me hooked from the moment we walked in the door. The ambience is spot-on and our server, Courtney, was an absolute delight! Truffled gnocchi is possibly the best I've ever had and homemade pastas are fantastic! I would like to see a less expensive... More

We had a very nice meal with very good service. The lettuce, beet and goats cheese salad was very good. Main courses were pesto pasta with asparagus and pine nuts, halibut, veal and Lazanya were all very good Very reasonable bill for all that , we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The place had a nice atmosphere.

Stopped by for a lite lunch and we shared a pizza! The sauce and dough home made and it was great. One of the best pizza's I've had. Small place, so you may have to wait during peak times.

Our son recommended Little Napoli and we were not disappointed on our final night in Carmel. The food was excellent (osso buco ravioli and chicken picatta) and our server (Kate) was just a good. We thoroughly enjoyed this place, which stood up to all the excellent reviews. My wife's chicken came with homemade tagliatelle noodles, which were the best she's... More

Delicious! All I can say. The fillet mignon was out of this world. My husband had the Veal that just melted in his mouth. The service was right on. The photographs on the walls were taken by the owners son. It made the atmosphere like authentic Italy.

Outwardly a nice venue with good food, but in detail a bit into itself. The food was expensive average and the service was forced enthusiastic. "Excellent choice" or "great meal". Overrated.

We reserved dinner for 8 and were pleasantly surprised to find our table tucked away off a courtyard in a private room with a fireplace! The service was personable and everyone enjoyed their meals, which is a rarity. Usually there is at least one of our family who has an issue with something! Portions were generous, with a few in...

We were recommended to try Little Napoli by some locals after being in town for vacation. The restaurant did not disappoint. We had eaten a late lunch so 2 of us split the Fried Calamari and Crab/Lobster Ravioli. Both were fantastic and enough food to satisfy both of us. The atmosphere was great and very romantic. This was our dinner... More

A friend treated us all to dinner and we closed the place down. Great Italian fare and they didn't kick us out even though they were tired and ready to leave. I had spaghetti and meatballs, which is my favorite comfort food and was very satisfying after a long (VERY LONG) accidental drive through Carmel Valley to Pebble Beach. Our... More
