Decent Italian that delivers UES?

I'm looking for recommendations for a reasonable Italian restaurant that delivers in the Gracie Mansion area.

I'm mainly interested in pasta dishes. Something a cut above generic, but I'm concerned higher end food won't travel well.

        For example, last time we were there I had a gnocchi dish and my wife had a seafood (in shell) pasta. Would these really still work well by the time they got delivered to us?

        What's your experience?
