Need Italian restaurant guidance... help!
My beloved hubby is turning 60 (!) this year, and I'd like to host a dinner for him and about a dozen of his friends at a nice Italian restaurant. He is particularly partial to eggplant parmesan. : ) I'd like a place...
-- with a private dining room or some space off the main area
-- pricy is OK, but not TOO pricy
-- onsite parking that's manageable
-- awesome food with some choices for vegetarians as well as carnivores.
As it so happens, we live very close to Bistro 5, but we go there most birthdays, so I was wondering what other options might be out there. Thanks in advance!!

Is this happening soon? If so, I wonder if you could get the roof deck at the Saraceno in the North End. Totally old school red sauce, but I love the eggplant parm there and at the Bella Vista next to them. Silky and delicious with a great red sauce. We had a family dinner with diverse group preferences at the Saraceno a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.

Have you been to Tre Monte in Woburn? I always get fabulous meals there. Municiple parking right out the back door.
Salvatore's right in Medford Square seems to fit your needs. Maybe you can get the private dining room that used to be the bank vault (scene of the "The Cops Are Robbers" break in).
How about Bocelli's in Medford? I don't know if you could reserve a room downstairs, but they turn out good red sauce italian-american. Nice eggplant parm.
