North End w/a dozen people from work?

chowciao Oct 30, 2007 11:36 AM

Hello all. We're doing some holiday celebrating about a month early this year. Tastes range from your basic pasta dishes to some more adventerous souls. Any suggestions for places that will take reservations? It'll be a weeknight (a Thursdsay I think). Many thanks!

    Prezza has nice area by the front widow for large parties (though is popular so books up pretty fast). Broad menu that I think has something that should appeal to everyone (seafood, pasta, salads, grilled meats and steaks). They take reservations, and have valet. Nice bar too.

        I tried to take some really unadventurous coworkers to Prezza this summer, but they balked at the menu. We ended up at Fiore. I had a bowl of perfectly cooked shellfish and completely overcooked white fish. I would have so much rather ended up at Prezza.

          mamma maria should work for a group and the food is great - the unadventurous will find traditional italian but of the best quality

            We've already gone the Mamma Maria route - it did work out really well...we wanted to try somewhere else this time around.

          You can also try Tresca right on Hanover they have a large table right by the window that I always see large parties sitting at.

            I second the Tresca recommendation. I have been to two dinners with large parties there and they do a nice job. I am fairly certain you can work with them on a menu if you want to make sure there is something for everyone.

            LaGalleria 33 on Salem can handle a large group and their menu is varied, not to mention good!

              Someone at work mentioned L'Osteria...any word on this place?

                  L'Osteria is ok, decent red sauce sort of place. Owned by the parents of the women who own LaGalleria 33. Also, they could probably accomodate you downstairs at Il Panino.

                  Sarceno on Hanover has a lot of unique dining spaces
