I'm looking for recommendations for a place for dinner tonight in N. Oakland or Berkeley for 6 friends to eat, drink and be merry. No sushi, no Indian, maybe Italian? Needs to be moderately priced (main's in the low teens)as we have 4 about to be in grad school types. Bendean would have been good, Oliveto downstairs is too small and maybe a bit too nice for this outing. Any suggestions, I'm at a loss. Thanks!
