Lunch for 7 or 8, Downtown - A Tough Group! Help!

So its a seasonal get-together for the team, good folks all, but the suggestions have been alongs the Applebee's line - I know, downtown is tough, and Roy's (Pacific fusion?) was mentioned, along with Italian, either of which which might be the fall-back, but c'mon guys, isn't there something down here to get excited about? A lengthy search of past posts turned up not much, and if Sophie's had more atmosphere, I might try a steer that way, as it's good food and at least a little ambiance we're looking for here, for modest bucks. So if nothing else, your fave downtown Italian? (Indian and Chinese already ruled out, btw.)

    Landmarc is my favorite in the neighborhood.

      What's the budget and which part of downtown?
      For affordable italian for a large group I would say Otto but definitely try to get a reservation.
