North Shore Function Room
I'm in need of a function for for approx. 30 people plus children. I'm looking for a restaurant (Italian would be first choice) with a seperate room for functions (not just half of the restaurant) like Molise or Gaetano's. A door would be nice to hold the kids in and not disturb others. I am not really interested in a function hall like Spinnelli's or Casa De Fior. I would like something in Stoneham, Wakefield, Reading, Melrose area. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
We attended a nice birthday party last year in the back room of the Legal Seafoods at the North Shore mall.
PortoBello in Wakefield has a separate room but no door that I can recall. Here are notes from my research (no guarantees of accuracy on prices) when planning a bridal shower earlier this year (We went with Molise and enjoyed it very much. Since we planned it on a Saturday afternoon, we had the restaurant to ourselves since they normally aren't open at that time.
