ITALIAN CUISINE…WITH AN ATTITUDE. The cuisine at Little Napoli features the flavors of Southern Italy, from Rome and Napoli, all the way down to Sicily…with a little bit of New Jersey thrown in, as chef/owner Rich Pepe was raised in Hoboken before coming out to California. Pizza, Pasta and Risotto are prepared perfectly with the Pepe family signature sauces. Seafood is a specialty here, and a special relationship with the local SK Cattle Company, all-natural hormone-free meat company, provides all the beef for the menu items.
Rich Pepe grew up working in the family bakery in New Jersey & also owns Carmel Bakery and desserts here are fantastic.The award-winning wine list is mostly Italian, with some local producers and Pepe’s own wine from Atlas Peak in Napa. Rich Pepe is partners with the famed Italian winemaker Piero Antinori at Peppoli at Pebble Beach, and has an amazing collection of multiple vintages of the finest Italian wines, yet all at reasonable prices.
A tribute to Italian culture and cuisine, Little Napoli “Bistro Italiano” possesses Old World charm mixed with centuries old traditions in Italian cuisine – the menu features handed-down family recipes reminiscent of the Italian countryside.
