Now in our mid-40's, friends since childhood. Looking for good food, "up" atmosphere but not too noisy & cramped. Italian, as will please all palates, not too pricey. Lupa was 1st choice but will only serve "family style" for parties over 8. NO family style. My thoughts: Lavagna,Peasant, Col Lengo, Uquale,I Coppi, Cala Di Volpe. Never been to any of these , got them from Chowhound. Thoughts? Better suggestions? You've helped in past & I thank-you all in advance!
