Child friendly, large-party friendly in North Beach

I'm looking for an Italian place in North Beach that could take a party of 12 -- with five children (one toddler) -- where we wouldn't be a serious disruption to the other diners. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    1. I like Caesar's on Bay Street where the staff is attentive and there is more food than anyone could eat!!

      1. i second bocce. this is where i go with large groups. if you actually don't care whether it's italian food, there's a decent persian place (maykadah?) *literally* next door to bocce, which can also accommodate large groups and often has large persian families dining there.

        1. I'll 3rd Bocce.. Gee, haven't been there in a long time. But use to eat lunch w/ a large group of co-workers, ususally 12-18 people. Outside is nice with good weather.

          1. Firenze by Night - if your party is large enough, they have a private room in the back. Food is a solid "B" - nothing over the top, but not too many restaurants are over the top that cater to large groups with children. I've seen many large groups with kids at this restaurant. Be sure to order the paparadelle toscano.
