Pizza Libretto - family friendly?

dramarama May 23, 2009 02:07 PM

I was thinking of checking out Pizza Libretto for an early dinner (5:30) with the family that includes one toddler and one infant. The website says anyone welcome (young, old, etc) but is it really family friendly?

Thanks in advance.

    It totally is. I've been with my two several times and been treated wonderfully.

      It is if you go that early -- I might even suggest going at 5 p.m. But I've been there around 7, in line for a table, while about five kids ran around the front of the house while their respective parents waited to be seated, and it's not a pretty picture. There isn't a real waiting area, so if you can't be seated right away, it might be worth getting your pizzas to go.

        I agree, go early. And by early I mean 5 or 530. Going any later than 530 and you will encounter a long line.

        Also, if you go early you will stand less of a chance at being seated at the long family style table. A few weeks ago my fiance and I went around 530 and were seating the middle of the long table. WIthin 30 mins a family with a little girl and boy were sitting beside us. The little girl could not sit still and was constantly sqiurming around and putting her feet up on the chairs and on me. Her father was trying to stop her but it was futile. Other than the feet thing she was pretty quiet so I wasn't too annoyed but the seating there is something to consider.

          Do they have high chairs?

            They definitely have booster seats, and I *think* I've seen high chairs too, but you may want to call to double check.

        i'd say it depends on your family. if your toddler is running around sticking their fingers in people's food, no it isn't. get a babysitter or go to pizza hut. if they can behave in public, i don't see a reason why they wouldn't enjoy a meal at Libretto.

          Yes but as other have said go early. I would say 5 would be your best bet as depending on the night I've had to wait for a table even at 530.

          And no, I've never seen a high chair there.....

            it's great I was there with my 4yr old she really liked it and it's totally kid friendly...
            5:30-6 is the better time as it does end up getting pretty packed so make sure...
            have fun!
