San Francisco Italian Restaurant for 14 for birthday celebration

norcalmom | Dec 27, 201411:44 AM     6

Fourteen of us are descending on SF for a 70th birthday celebration - it's a 'girls' weekend of cousins, most from L.A. area. The birthday girl's request is for Italian - several of the cousins have Southern Italian roots and love pasta! What would be a great place for Italian, probably not an emphasis on seafood (like Sotto Mare) - moderate price range, not super foodie or Cal-Ital?

With 14 of us, who can get pretty loud, a small intimate bistro is probably not the best. I've had a poor dining experience at Perbacco, so not looking to return there.

Also, the restaurant should have a full bar, not just wine and beer. Some of us like our cocktails!!
