Italian for large group

j00jo Jul 1, 2007 06:37 PM

Any recommendation in center city area for a nice Italian restaurant for a group of 10+ on a Friday night that isnt a BYO? Cost not important-. Good food and accomodations are most important.

    I'd recommend La Famiglia, although it would be worth listening to others who do the CC restaurant scene more often. And boy howdy -hiccup- do they have a bar, a license to serve, and a nice wine collection.

    8 South Front St.

      Here's another vote for La Famiglia.
      More earthy but a Philly institution -- The Saloon.

      How about Ristorante Panorama on Front & Market. Try getting a table in the downstairs. They have great wines and food is pretty good.
