Little Napoli is a small but delicious place off the beaten path. Food and service are great. They have a nice wine list and the food is authentic and prepared with great care. Next door is their wine bar if you're looking to linger with friends over great wine. Small tip- there is only one small bathroom so "come prepared"... More

The day of our reservation I called to see if a later time was available. The hostess told me that yes there was however it was a 9:30. I went... More

It was a bit more expensive than expected for the quality of the food. The atmosphere is nice though, the fire is burning, there are pictures of Italy all over. I had a soup and it was really nice, the right amount of spicy.

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
