Family Style Italian for 13?
We are a large group looking for something casual, with reservations. Is family-style Italian available somewhere that is not a factory and that has a bit of atmosphere/soul?
I haven't been to La Mela in Little Italy for years, but remember it serving family-style Italian, definitely casual - fun for a group in the low to mid 20s. Been so long I can't speak to the food quality though.

Consider John's of 12th St. Definitely has atmosphere.
