Italian in Berkeley or Oakland with a Client and a Baby

Jane Hathaway | Nov 11, 2004 04:01 PM

I can normally suggest a restaurant for any occasion in any one of several cities without batting an eye. However, my current situation has me absolutely puzzled. Hubby has a client who comes in from out of town several times a year who likes to have dinner with us. He's quite partial to Italian. This is the first time we'll have our 8 month old baby in tow. We've also only recently moved to the East Bay and aren't terribly familiar with great Italian places where you can take a baby and an important client at the same time! The baby is good and can definitely sit through a meal, but we are looking for something extremely casual - just in case. The client wants to meet the baby so leaving her at home is not an option. Any suggestions on a very casual Italian place with delicious food in Berkeley, Oakland or somewhere in that vicinity would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
