If you want a time capsule of what Americanized red sauce Italian was like in 1960, there's Italian Inn in Hyattsville. Just off the BW Parkway.
If you're looking for a traditional red sauce place, and the 'burbs are ok, then Olazzo in Bethesda is a decent option.
Went to Osteria Morini a few weeks ago. It was very good. It is probably as good as you are going to get for traditional Italian. Graffiato is goo.d too but less traditional
I wouldn't characterize the place as "family style Italian," but there were quite a few families there the last two times I've been. The staff is also very accomodating.
I really like Il Canale in Georgetown. Also Graffiato.
Thanks! Anything more family style?
I've seen families at Graffiato. I've never been to Carmine's but that might be what you are looking for.
If you want family style, you are pretty much stuck with Carmine's. Not my favorite, but a lot of people do like it.
There's also Buca di Beppo and G-Tasting at night.
Ugh don't go to Buca di Beppo!
Because it's bad and you can do much better in DC!
