Best UWS Italian take-out / delivery option?

I'm looking for "family-style" delivery options. These ideas come to mind: Patsy's, Sambuca and Carmines. Any other ideas, or experience with the above? Patsy's only seems to have pizza and pasta, no meat or fish dishes. In that case, we would probably need to supplement the order with meat or fish from another place.

Edit: If there are good places to buy larger pre-made servings, like Whole Foods, that could also work.

  1. Dean's.

    Maybe Bruno's Ravioli can do big catering trays?

    1. There is also Bellini, I do believe they have family size portions and are well priced.

      1. Thanks for the recs, harrison and XerxesAB. As it turns out the dinner is off for now, but I like all the suggestions and will definitely keep them in mind, if and when the need arises again.

        Bruno's does seem to offer large catering trays on their web menu.

        In the event anyone can provide any sort of comparison ranking of food quality at some or all of the places listed in this post, I would be very interested

        1. For next time...Fairway has had some pretty good Italian food in their prep section and I am sure you could order trays/half trays from them.

          I would say Dean's is OK, not great for that type of stuff (pizza is better) but haven't tried the others.
