Family dinner in East Village?

I am bringing my parents and kids to the Orpheum Theatre on 2nd Avenue for my fathers birthday. Can anyone recommend a place to eat before the show, which starts at 7:00pm? I had hoped for Cacio e Pepe but it does not open until 5:30 and I probably need a place that opens at 5:00 to allow for enough time. I had thought about Johns on 12th Street or walking over from Bianca on Bleeker. We would prefer Italian. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

    Lavanga, Perbacco, Supper, Il Bagatto

    Nothing amazing but solid neighborhood places.
    My first choice would be Cacio e Pepe for sure, sorry it didn't work out.
