Good, but simple, dinner for tomorrow night

I'm trying to choose a restaurant (in the vicinity of North Beach) for tomorrow night. There will be four of us. Three of us are 30 or under. The fourth is much older and is not an adventurous eater. She is from out of town (New York) and I want to make sure we pick a restaurant she'll enjoy.

Basic criteria:

-Relatively affordable; nothing fancy
-In the North Beach vicinity
-Takes reservations (preferably)
-Nothing adventurous (or at least with good non-adventurous options)

Thanks everyone!

          Did Enrico's re-open in the same spot or did they relocate?

            Enrico's is in the same spot...I've been twice, the mojitos are as good as before and the food less expensive and pretty tasty. They also have a happy hour, I believe Mon-Wed, with $7 pizzas and $3 beer/well drinks.
