Reasonably priced rehearsal dinner restaurant in Long Beach?

Does anyone have some ideas about where to host a fairly inexpensive wedding rehearsal dinner in April? We're looking for something tasteful and nice, but we just can't afford to spend a lot after what the wedding is going to cost us. We'd like to keep it in Long Beach since our out of town guests will be there. Thanks!

      Cafe Piccolo is a great idea--thank you! I apologize for not being clearer on the numbers. We'll be having approximately 25 people, and we'd LOVE to be able to keep it to about $20-25 per person.

        I think you should do very well there if you can fit. Their prices are about in your range since soup or salad is included in the entree price.

        PS I'd try to get the inside dining's a little more elegant.

    2. Michael's on Naples, 2nd street... fantastic and they will help prep a menu to suit your tastes & $$

        Michael's is a superb and classy choice, only thing I would be concerned about is your budget. Perhaps you could talk to Michael and see if he can stay within your budget, If you are talking $20-25pp including tax, tip and wine, I'm thinking it's not possible. But if you can stretch your budget a bit, you will not find a better spot!

          I LOVE Michael's . . . it's definitely worth asking. Thanks for the tip
