I am going to be in SF in August for a birthday celebration. There will be a group of about 12 of us there for the weekend, and I have been designated to find an accomodating restaurant for us to celebrate on one of the nights. Does anyone have a good rec for a festive place for us to go? I figure Italian would be best to please a large and diverse group.
I'm not really looking for an expensive place, just good food and a fun atmosphere.
We're all staying near Union Square. Any help is greatly appreciated.
