Mother Anna’s the portions are pretty good sized so you can share and dont break the bank either. Or try lunch at any of the restaurants. The prices are usually a lot cheaper.
I have gotten excellent food and service, with reasonable prices, at Cafe Pompeii. Went there one night alone; was a little nervous because it looked so fancy from the outside. But they gave me a window seat, and treated me royally. Then, a husband and wife came in with 2 daughters, and a friend of each daughter, and their family was treated so nice, and the girls were all enjoying their dishes. So even though it may have a “romantic” look from the outside, they are perfectly comfortable with families.
Tratoria Il Panino is the place to go for affordable family dining.
