Hi, I am looking for a fun, cozy Italian place for my birthday -- 20 -25 people. $$ priced. I have been trying to book for 3 days at Osteria La Buca and what morons-- they won't take a reservation for large groups over the phone and they don't respond to emails. So any other suggestions? Melrose, Noho, Hollywood areas please. Thanks, chow-peeps!
