We have tried to dine here several times without a reservation. Lucky for us, we tried this time on a Tuesday instead of during the weekend and were quickly seated. The service was impeccable and friendly. The food was delicious! We ordered the garlic bread.......light and crispy and yummy.....made with a 100 year old recipe. We ordered the lobster/ crab...

This restaurant looked beautiful from the outside and was very popular so we thought it must be good. We had to wait 10 minutes for a table as we had not booked which was fine. we were shown to a nice table but near the exit from the kitchen so it was a bit noisy and busy with the staff... More

It's your usual Italian food featuring garlic bread, pasta, pizza, entree meat and fish, good wine list but the best part is the lively, friendly atmosphere. Service is great, ambiance is comfortable, romantic, tons of Italian & Frank Sinatra memorabilia to look at on walls.

Little Napoli is a classic Italian restaurant with food like your Italian grandmother made. The service is great and the wine selection is perfect. There are two small party rooms for groups of 10 if you need a special event setting. The owners are wonderful and staff very accommodating.

We visited the week before Christmas. Very cold that week. There were 5 of us plus our 2 year old grandson. We did get seated right away accept we sat right by the doors leading to the alley between the buildings (the other building is where the rest rooms are). Unfortunately, every time either patrons or staff walked in and... More

The food and the service were excellent! Simple items such as their garlic bread and spaghetti with meatballs were the best I've ever had. Accommodating to gluten free diet requirements. Nice selection and friendly staff.

Oh this was such a good find thanks to its many wonderful reviews! We came for a late lunch and were seated right away. The waitress was super-human as she seemed to be taking care of the entire restaurant by herself yet made it look effortless. The food!!!! You must start with the famous Garlic Bread which arrives warm, soft... More

After walking all around Carmel, opted for this Italian restaurant because I fancied that type of food. The quality of the food was ok, not great. Service was slow even though it was not full. It is a convenient restaurant but I am sure there are better ones around. The Gnocchi was great, the Mozzarella in Truffle Oil was good,... More

I have been going to Little Napoli since it opened many years ago. The menu offerings and food preparation are consistently good. You will need to visit more than once in order to explore the menu! Make a reservation as this is a very popular place. There is a wine bar next door.

Thank Stu C
