Thanks, Magiccarpet, for your EXTREMELY helpful input. I've noticed that you are "helpful" in many of your postings. What a joy you must be in person!

Have a nice day, everyone, and thanks for your help! I'm sure we will make a terrifically informed decision and enjoy ourselves immensely. Cluck cluck!

Youíre right. Iím even more fun in person. But, I donít give restaurant advice because I notice that it always gets pooh-poohed by somebody.

If I were entertaining a five-year-old as precocious as your grandson, I would take him into several restaurants and ask him which one appeals to him most. P.F. Chang's, a *** chain restaurant, would be on my list, but I won't mention it because I don't want to read what why it is a poor choice.

I hope your grandson brings you happiness for many years to come.

I don't believe having different restaurant preferences means anyone's "poo-pooing" anyone.

Although since the request was for Italian restaurants, probably I wouldn't have thought of P.F.Changs.

Hi! Just talked to my husband and son after their dinner with grandma at Assaggio's. It was a huge hit--I didn't hear anything about it being too noisy, and the owner and all the staff were very attentive. Apparently they offered to make my son's meal however he wanted it, or to bring a half portion, etc. He had spaghetti and then ate half of Grandma's cannoli for dessert.

He talked to me on the phone and asked if I could make cannoli sometime, LOL! He was the only kid in there and did very well with the whole experience.

Oh, and they had a pizza lunch today at Il Fornaio and that was a huge hit too.

Thanks again for everyone's help!

I'll add Al Boccalino to the list. Quiet with excellent food and not terribly expensive.
