3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I hate to give this restaurant 3 stars instead of 5, but I feel it's necessary after how the hosts treated my boyfriend and I. They were extremely snotty and rude, couldn't have cared less about us. Ruined our entire night. Thankfully the food was really good, and the waiter was extremely friendly. If this was my restaurant I would... More

I thought it was pricy, but I have to remember it is Carmel! $6.00 for garlic bread, $30.00 for lasagna! Linguini with pesto sauce was good, pizza was just okay

The service was attentive and pleasant. The waiter stopped by regularly to refill my glass of Pellegrino. I ordered a Caesar salad and Osso Buco ravioli. The Caesar was just the right portion size...

Can only recommend the garlic bread. Rest everything we tried ( pizza and ravioli) were nothing to remember. Not sure about the non- veg fare but the vegetarians should look elsewhere.

What a gem in Carmel CA. LITTLE NAPOLI is a quaint little restaurant whose food and service is above par. The music & decor within is truly Italian ambiance. For my husband & I, we forego the seating inside and sat in their small patio area. I ordered the crab bisque & cesar salad, & my husband ordered chicken parmigiana.... More

We went with friends who go to Little Napoli many times. It was our first time and it was simply lovely. The food was delicious and the wine excellent. The staff were friends and made the whole experience perfect. We recommend highly and will return when in Carmel.
