Rec. rest. near columbia university

Hi, Looking for a great restaurant near Columbia University for dinner for a group of 6 gals. Leaning towards Italian but open to suggestions. Looking also for a fun atmosphere, mid price range. Thanks!

  1. Max Soha and Kitchenette are always a nice choice. For a large group, I would call them in advance.

      I second Max Soha. It's about a 7 minute walk from 116th St.

    2. This might be a nice option but possibly not as close to Columbia as you would like.

      1. Pisticci and Sezz Medi are probably the best bets. The food at Max SoHa is good and moderately priced, but if you want to be able to hear one another, it's probably not the best choice. Bistro Ten 18, which features American cuisine, has a warm and lively atmosphere.
