Private dining room in downtown T.O. for 60th bday
I would like to book a private room for my mother's birthday. This will be for about 15 people, including mostly people of her age (~55+). Looking for something downtown, preferably an Italian restaurant (this is what she likes), and upscale. As far as a "private" room, I guess it could be curtained off and doesn't have to be completely separate, but I think separate would be best as my 95 year-old grandfather will also be in attendance. We also want to bring in our own cake. Is that an issue?
Sotto Sotto was busy for that night (Aug 18) and Spuntini only had seating times that wouldn't really work. We can't get there before 7:30 p.m. Buca wanted $7500 for the room! I thought that was outrageous.
If anyone has any suggestions, they would be much appreciated.
This is my first time time posting so if I'm doing things wrong...feel free to let me know. :)
