Italian for large group

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.

  1. 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.

    1. re: Mawrter

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

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