Ericandblueboy Posted June 16, 2010 Share Posted June 16, 2010 Diners with ChildrenTom, we really enjoyed Pacci's Pizzeria this weekend! We agreed completely with your review--loved our pizza, but our panini could have used another two minutes or so in the oven because it was doughy. Anyway, we got there early Sunday and the hostess allowed us to choose our spot. We picked a table across from the patio entrance with a good view of the World Cup game. Anyway, five minutes later a couple with a very loud toddler comes into the restaurant. Despite at least 5 other open tables that could easily accommodate the 3 of them, they sit right behind us. We tried to enjoy our meal despite his incessant shrieking, but were very frustrated! I don't know why they would not have opted for another table! Children in restaurants The diner who had a loud child seated behind him should have spoken to the manager. Explain that you had wanted the seats near the television to watch the World Cup and that the child was loud and disturbing. It is the manager's job to cope with the problem and speak with the other family. Either the parents needs to quiet the child or the family needs to be moved. A.Tom Sietsema writes: I would SO not want to be a restaurant manager and have to deal with all the diners who think it's their inalienable right to do whatever they want, wherever they want, consequences be damned. But I agree. The manager would have to be cool about it, though I'd like some opinions about this. We're talking about casual pizza restaurants. I've avoided certain pizza restaurants in the past because I can't handle the romper room atmosphere. I never once considered telling the manager to quiet down all the howlers. As a new father, we do our best to keep our infant quiet but I can't predict when she's gonna puke or start whining. For that reason, we don't go to high end restaurants (or if we do, we go early). It would be annoying if someone tells me to move because our daughter is acting up at a pizza joint. Isn't that like telling parents at Disney World to keep their kids quiet?
