Where for Italain? Not too fancy, delicious, not too loud...

I will have several visitors in town this week for a big birthday.

Most nights we'll be doing fancy and/or celebratory things, but on Thursday there will be just (!!) 7 or 8 of us going out for dinner, including my parents.

I'd like something

-- not in North Beach

-- relatively quiet, or at least not noisy

-- accomodates a table for 7 or 8

-- not one of my regulars (which tend to be Pane e Vino, La Cicca, Sausage Factory, Jackson Fillmore, A16, SPQR)

-- straightforward food, preferably southern, nothing too fancy; several in the party have plainer tastes. So good fresh pastas, maybe a nice chicken parmigiana on the menu

I'm considering the following places right now, in this order

-- Capannina

-- Poesia (walking distance to my house, but have not tried)

-- Perbacco (which I know and love)

-- Delfina

nyone have a strong preference or alternative?

(I'd be interested in Flour+Water but it sounds like a scene and probably too tough to reserve)

Thanks!
