The 54-year-old superstar was also joined by a group of dancers from her MDNA tour in what seemed like a mini-reunion. The group enjoyed a number of dishes including calamari, fried mozzarella, cacio e pepe, seasoned vegetables, tortellini pasta, seabass and cod.
Madonna seemed like the "coolest mom in the world," one onlooker said after observing her interaction with her son and daughter. Lourdes was in great spirits as she posed for cell phone photos with a male friend she'd brought along.
Meanwhile, two tables over Hardy wasn't phased by the Queen of Pop and her crew. Hardy was joined by a table of mostly men and one woman, who ordered a variety of Italian fare, including spaghetti cacio e pepe, schiaffoni all'amatriciana, mezze maniche alla carbonara and baccala alla romana.

Antica Pesa is the New York counterpart to the original location in Rome, which Madonna visited in June while on tour. Guess she liked it!
