Rec needed Detroit matinee

20-30 of us going to see Jersey Boys; age ranges 25 to 75. Need a dining place that is Italian (to fit the theme) and casual (not Olive Garden Italian). Not formal and expense, but authentic, will even consider a small banquet hall and I can set menu. We would all be eating the same thing.

If all else fails, how is the greektown casino buffet?

    A second group of us is coming the week before for another get together and would go for any good buffet or other cuisine, doesn't have to be Italian. Other recs needed for that.

        Are all of these casual or quite formal?

          you can go casual and be comfortable.

          the roma waiters wear tux's but there is definately no dress code. it is not a fancy place. it is a 100 year old italian dining room. make sure you get the roma salad with your meal.
