Italian for 5 in October

  • 3

Looking for an Italian place for 5 - dinner early October.
Thought about Perla or Maialino. Some of us don't have seafood and some don't have pork. According to menus on websites I saw that Maialino tends more towards beef/fish Primi and seems it will suit us better.
I'll appreciate your thoughts and recs on 1 of those or another. Budget around $80-$100 a head.
Thanks in advance.

  1. I prefer Perla, especially for pasta, though you can't go wrong with Maialino.

      Just a heads up: In Italian, the word maialino means suckling pig and suckling pig is the signature dish at the restaurant Maialino. It is also featured in one of their pastas. Don't get me wrong: I love the place, but I eat anything and everything.
