Little Napoli is an affordable downtown Italian eatery featuring an indoor dining room and an outdoor, ground-level patio. The menu is available on the restaurant's website.
Little Napoli is one of my favorite lunch time places due to the superb beef lasagna lunch time special. The service is outstanding and the wait staff always greets everyone with a smile. This is a very family-oriented restaurant.
The menu is quite extensive, offering something for everyone. Appetizers include the Portobello mushrooms accompanied by a sweet Marsala sauce at $7.99 and the Napoli sampler which includes coconut shrimp, breaded shrimp, fried calamari and fried mozzarella sticks accompanied by a marinara sauce at $14.99, an excellent choice for sharing with the table.
For those who wish to stay on the light and healthy side I recommend the grilled salmon salad which comes with mixed greens, cucumber, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and olives at $11.99.
As for the restaurant’s pasta entrées I recommend the manicotti comprised of three cheeses rolled in pasta sheets and topped with marinara sauce, or the beef cannelloni or the beef lasagna at $9.99. If you prefer seafood with your pasta choose the lobster ravioli a la vodka consisting of lobster stuffed ravioli, sautéed fresh tomatoes, fresh basil with a splash of Alfredo sauce at $14.99, or the seafood Portofino accompanied by mussels, scallops, jumbo shrimp, and mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, all in a light white garlic butter white wine sauce at $15.99.
Other options include entrées such as the mixed grilled chicken and beef Italian kabob accompanied by peppers and onions at $17.99, the grilled lamb chops accompanied by sautéed vegetables and a side of pasta with a pesto sauce at $18.99, the grilled red snapper accompanied by a side of vegetables at $19.99, or the eggplant parmigiana at $10.99.
Remember to leave a little room for the dessert tray featuring among other excellent choices tiramisu and wonderfully rich cannelloni.
The service is excellent most of the time and the wait staff is always available and ready to assist you, especially if you are undecided between two dishes or in answering any questions you may have regarding their happy hour choices.
