A place with private dining within the GTA (15 people) - your recommendations needed!

Hi there!

I'm hoping someone can help me to create a list of restaurants to contact.

We are having a family event in mid-November, with 15 people attending including small children and a person over 80. So I am currently looking for a place with private dining (Italian, French, Greek, Mediterranean, etc..), not too expensive, preferrably in the North part of the GTA, however, downtown Toronto works too.

Does anyone know a good affordable place that we can try? Based on your personal experience please.

Thank you so much!

    I don't know what counts as "affordable," but we had a great dinner for a group of about 10 at Malena. Food is a contemporary take on Greek. The room was actually semi-private (their upstairs dining room), although I expect it could be entirely private depending on the day of the week. Service was excellent.

        Here are some suggestions. You would need to check out pricing to see if it falls in your price range.
        I just booked a family occasion party at Paese to be held in November(Bathurst just north of Wilson). They have 2 lovely rooms upstairs with washrooms upstairs as well. The woman in charge of group reservations is wonderful to deal with. I think the menu can appeal to most age ranges and can be customized for your group. I don't know if they have a children's menu but I would think they can come up with something.
        The Oliver and Bonacini group have a couple of rooms in their Bayview village location that may be worth checking out.I was considering it when planning a party for 20.
        Mezza Notte at 5304 Yonge St. may be another option. I have not been for awhile but I believe they have redone their private dining room.

        Mezza Notte
        5304 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M2N5P9, CA

        333 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V, CA

          Paese and Mezza Notte seem to be the ones that could work well, will check those, thank you!
