I'm getting married in Malibu in this August and I'm looking for a nice (but not exorbitant,) spot for a family friendly rehearsal. A view would be nice, but I'd swap it for a reasonable price. Italian always works for us. Thanks so much gang!
I have I have done a few family gatherings at Bucca Di Beppo. It's casual Italian but they cater to groups and are very family friendly. They never have an issue with kids running around or you lingering after dinner giving toasts and such. The food is not mind blowing but it is satisfying and won't break the bank.
