Family-style pizza place SIT DOWN
Ever have one of those crazy foodie moments and can't think of a single place? No? Just me? OK....well I need some help please!
Family is taking out my sister for her birthday - there will probably be about 10 of us (with a 5 and 6 year old). What we're looking for is an obviously non-fast-food type restaurant. Somewhere we can go and order several pizzas for the table and just share, with quite a few bottles of chianti. So, I guess the main requirements would be family-friendly and great pizza.
How about John's Classic on Baldwin? I have been there with large-ish groups and we always found room (I am not even sure if they take reservations), the pizza is tasty with a good variety of toppings, decent selection of wines, and affordable. I've never been hurried out of there when it gets busy, and the staff can definitely handle bigger groups. The Queen W Terroni generally cannot accomodate big groups, since their tables are mostly 2-4 persons and the place is often busy. Don't know about the spaciousness of other Terroni locations.
