I am planning a post-wedding lunch for 10 members of my family, plus possibly an additional 2 (mostly) well behaved kids. I went to Maialino for lunch recently and really liked both the food and atmosphere, so we got some info from them. They do a 3 course lunch in their private dining room for $60 a person, which seems like a pretty good deal.
However, we are open to other options in a similar price range, though I really hesitate to reserve something without trying it unless it comes highly recommended by CHers. We would like to keep it to American or Italian, since although some of the crowd is rather adventurous, the other half is definitely not. I do like the idea of a private room since my family can get rather loud. I'm also a little unsure how we will plan the timing for this as I don't know exactly what time we'll be done with the ceremony at the municipal building.
Any options anyone can suggest would be great! Proximity to the municipal building is a plus, but quality of food is more important.
Thanks in advance.
