NYC restaurant that appeals to both kids and adults

My husband and I will be visiting NYC next week and friends of ours and their children will be coming in from Connecticut to join us for the day and to have dinner. I am hoping someone can make suggest a restaurant that 1) will appeal to the children (ages 11 & 6) without resorting to a "fun house" atmosphere 2) will be fairly quiet so we can visit without yelling across the table and 3) will offer entrees under $15 each (I don't know what the other couple's budget is but I think this may be a safe guess) I think at this point I should consider a midtown location but I certainly don't mind hearing about someone's favorites in another part of town! Thanks in advance

there are lots of great places like you descibe in Little Italy (depending on what you order of course for the $$).

Also, my daughter always liked Carnegie Deli, as did our church youth group. Not meals so much of course but great food for your money (you'll need to share some of the sandwiches). I can't say it's exactly quiet bu it's not bad depending on the time of day. Very casual.

Il Vagabondo has an indoor bocce court the kids might like. Red sauce Italian. Also a good area for well priced parking (east 60's near the FDR drive)

Serendipity usually known for desserts also has decent food.

I agree Little Italy is a good idea.

The Metropolitan Cafe on first ave around 52-53 is a basic neighborhood place but has a nice large outdoor patio if it's decent weather.

Thanks for the suggestions. I hadn't thought about Little Italy, thank you for reminding me - can someone make recommendation?
