Best Local Family Restaurant

Smoky Mountain Pizzeria Grill

For the second year in a row, Best of Boise voters cast their ballots in overwhelming numbers for Smoky Mountain Pizzeria Grill as the place they'd most like to sit down for a meal with the fam. From the pizza to the appetizers, there's something to match even the finickiest tastes and, with its casual atmosphere, everyone can just relax and enjoy the fact they don't have to clean up afterward.

2nd Place: Luciano's—At Luciano's it's all about mange, bere and amore—"eat, drink and love." Who do you love more than your family? (OK, maybe who do you love more consistently and over a long period of time than your family?) That makes Luciano's a prime spot to gather your nearest and dearest and raise a toast in their honor. With an expansive, economical wine list; famously fine traditional Italian fare; and a legendary Guinness chocolate cake, your family will definitely be friendly with you when the check comes.

3rd Place: Highlands Hollow Brew House—Dining en famille can be a hassle, but you can't go wrong with beer; solid American pub fare; and a laid back, fun-loving atmosphere. For decades, families have flocked to Highlands Hollow to share a massive bowl of french fries, a couple of brews and a lot of laughs. Trust us, this place was made for family bonding.
