My friend had linguine with clams. He loved the sauce, however the clams were chewy. I had one. Overdone I'd say. I had the Amalfi salad which was great. Service was what you'd expect there when you needed a refill but not hovering. Nice people.

Nice Italian fare in Carmel. Menu: lots of options. Panini sandwiches, pizzas, salads, and main courses. I thought much of the food was excessively loaded with cheese, and though delicious, unhealthy! $220 for five people.

We arrived hopeful for a nice experience. After all, the reviews were good and it was supposedly a famous little spot in town. After being seated, we proceeded to wait for 10 minutes without a single glance from a waiter/waitress. Once our order was taken, we decided to continue the experience. Turns out, we shouldn't have because we waited and... More

We happened upon this place for lunch. Looked reasonable but I didn't have high expectations. It ended up being wonderful. The food itself is really good, appears to be quality ingredients and wonderful favors. What was even better were the options for lunch. You had a choice of getting "half and half". You could for $16 get a small pasta... More

Enjoyed a great dinner with a flight of wine. The calamari was crisp and fresh. The pizza was a great blend of goat cheese, basil and roasted tomatoes was outstanding. Plus the environment was welcoming and comfortable. I'd recommend this place :)

We brought our visiting relatives to Little Napoli for a quick lunchtime bite, since they were dining later at the Sardine Factory in Monterey and didn't want a big meal. It was the perfect choice! We shared a selection of appetizers with a refreshing bottle of Prosecco. Everything was excellent, but the standout was the Truffled Gnocci. Served in a... More

This was the perfect spot for an early dinner while driving to LA from San Fran. We were a party of six and were seated right away. We started with the garlic bread ( which was just ok) and the artichoke. For dinner we all shared the eggplant parm, penne vodka, lobster Ravioli and spaghetti and meatballs!! All the dishes...

Liked the atmosphere in here. Friendly service in attractive, cosy venue with a nice hubbub of chatter. Family friendly too (by this I do not mean inferior child like food or over run with kids). Nicely presented Italian pasta classics were what we chose and very flavoursome they were too, with large portions. Fresh ingredients and pasta- it was good... More

Have eaten here many times, so we were a bit disappointed when the food didn't measure up to our previous visits, maybe it was just an off night for them. The service is very good and it has a charming atmosphere. We will just wait awhile before we give it another try.

The place was packed. We couldn't get a reservation the first time we visited Carmel. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was warm & cozy - with a fire burning to take the chill off. We had a local red wine that was superb - Bernardus Pinot Noir from Santa Lucia Highlands. It was perfect with the spicy red... More
