wedding rehearsal dinner in Morgan Hill/San Martin/Gilroy/even San Jose area

Bay area chowhounds, I desperately need help with a place for wedding rehearsal dinner. I am getting married next month in San Martin, and I am looking for a casual comfy place for early dinner (4 or 5) in the area.

I was initially looking at Italian, and the following places in Morgan Hill were suggested to me:

Mamma Mia (Morgan Hill)
Maurizio's
Sicilia in Bocca

The restaurant would need to accommodate ~35 people.

I am not particularly attached to Italian menu but looking for more of an overall feeling of coziness and good food on a reasonable budget (hoping for $15-25 pp). What are your suggestions?

Thank you in advance!

    You might want to give Lizarran in Gilroy a call. You could start out with drinks on the patio then move to the dining room. Here's my post on the pintxos (I haven't ordered much else from the Spanish/Basque menu.)

    You could arrange for a flamenco performance or live music! Here's the FB page to give you more of a sense of the ambiance.

      There's a new restaurant in Morgan Hill called Odeum that was recently reviewed in the Mercury,

      According to its website, it can seat groups up to 85.

      Wondering if any 'hounds have tried it yet.
