I would really recommend Lombardi’s in Soho.  It is the first pizza place in New York (or so they say) so it’s really fun for out of town guests. It has a very casual vibe but at the same time the Soho feel and the prices are very reasonable.  I love the clam pizza.

If you want a more formal feel Il Giglio has fantastic Italian cuisine and is closer to the Wall Street downtown area.

If you aren’t looking for someplace formal – Carmine’s for family style Italian food.  Or maybe venture down to one of the places in Little Italy?

a lot of restaurants in nyc have private dining rooms for more privacy (toasts, etc)… so you may want to inquire about them during your search.

the first restaurant that comes to mind is Osso buco downtown by union square. It’s an italian restaurant. there is a small section that is a bit private by being upstairs but sitll in the main area (just overlooking it). They serve food family style and its great! not sure about the price though.

i like Primitivo Osteria on 14th (between 7th & 8th ave) for their very reasonable prix-fixe menus.  they have your basic fare of italian dishes and have a private party/dining room in the back.  i think it would be perfect for your party size.  you can go formal or informal there. 

check out their website for party information and photo gallery. 

below is a pic of the private dining room… or half of it anyways.  

good luck!

I’ve heard Becco is great and it has private rooms but it’s a bit pricey.

I’m not sure when youre wedding is, butLa lanterna is really cute.  Maybe you can ask if you can reserve the lower level with the fire place or the garden.  http://www.lalanternacaffe.com
