I really enjoyed the osso bucco. And the vegetables and mashed potatoes that were included all tasted great as well. Sometimes the vegetables are an afterthought – but not here.

They have a private room upstairs that should handle 18 people no problem. There is also a small area in the back of the main dining room. I would call them. Franco and his staff will not disappoint you.
