Going to see a movie at the Stanford Theatre soon, and will have
a 4-yr old & 7 yr old in tow. Also, my 83-yr-old mother.
Close to the theatre & yet not too, too noisy would be great for my mom. (and yet if too hushed, not great for the kids either, it seems)

Has anyone tried Bella Luna recently? It's very, very close
location-wise but if it's a poor version of Italian food, would prefer to skip as my SIL & brother from So Calif. eat Italian quite a bit! (he's finicky & doesn't have the broadest tastes which eliminates then many ethnic places) And, so too is my senior mom...fairly narrow tastes.

Evvia? Worthwhile or more a place to be seen & noisy?
Haven't been in YEARS & never to Bella Luna,
but it's appealing from the outside, at least. :-)

Please share *any* ideas you have as this is a belated b-day celebration for my mother.
Really close to the theatre probably makes the most sense, but if you have a favorite elsewhere, please DO share. Btw, the kids are pretty used to eating out...so I think they'll be okay.
Thanks so much! :-)
