Spaghetti, like a hammerhead shark, is rigid and boring until it's submerged in water, at which point it quickly springs to life and develops a taste for swimmers. Celebrate this predatory noodle with today's Groupon for Southern-Italian cuisine at Little Napoli, with locations on Westheimer Road and Texas Avenue. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $25 worth of dinner fare at either location.
- For $7, you get $15 worth of breakfast (served weekdays at the downtown location only), brunch (served weekends at the Westheimer location only), or lunch at either location.
A casually elegant hotbed of classic Southern-Italian fare, Little Napoli whips up a made-to-order menu crafted from fresh ingredients. Specialty pizzas such as the Mona Lisa—spinach, feta cheese, and fresh tomatoes ($16/16")—and the D' Mare—shrimp, calamari, or clams and fresh tomatoes ($18.95/14")—sit alongside Italian staples such as rigatoni mussels marinara ($15.99), fettuccine alfredo ($9.99), and eggplant "no nose" parmigiana ($10.99). The dining room is open until midnight daily, and also hosts karaoke on Friday nights, starting at 9 p.m.
Early eaters are welcome at the Westheimer location on weekends for an all-you-can-eat brunch buffet from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ($9.99). Options include pancakes and waffles topped with whipped cream, fresh strawberries, raspberries, peaches, or blueberries, as well as savory sides such as bacon, sausage, and O'Brien potatoes—a specialty dish on loan from France. Or stop by the downtown location Monday–Friday for an array of breakfast classics, served from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. ($7.99). Try a sweet cinnamon waffle topped with whipped cream and nuts or a savory mushroom omelette with a side of turkey sausage. Orange juice, coffee, tea, and unlimited atmosphere are included in both breakfast-buffet options.
Though the downtown and Westheimer menus are similar, some dishes and prices may vary by location.

Little Napoli Italian Cuisine
Southern Italian dishes adorn white linen tablecloths inside both locations of Little Napoli Italian Cuisine. Chefs plate casual classics such as baked ziti and calzones as well as more elaborate entrees such as linguine pescatore, loaded with shrimp, calamari, clams, and mussels. The downtown location heats up its griddles for breakfast on weekday mornings, and the Westheimer location dishes out brunch fare such as omelets, waffles, and Napoli pasta on Saturdays and Sundays. Also on Westheimer Road, Friday nights entertain patrons with karaoke, and both locations host a VIP private-dining section that can seat up to 40 people or one very hungry velociraptor.
