Eggplant parmigiana in SF?

I'd like to order a half-tray or even a full-tray of fresh eggplant parmigiana to serve on Christmas Eve, but I'm having trouble finding a restaurant that sells these larger sizes rather than single servings. Anyone have recommendations? We live in Potrero Hill, so I'd prefer a source in the eastern part of SF (North Beach, Soma, the Mission), but I'd be willing to travel 15-20 minutes south on 280 if necessary.

        Great, thank you! Delessio's seems expensive ($55 for a half-tray that serves 8), but both they and Molinari's seem like excellent suggestions; they should have what I'm looking for. Thanks again.

          1. re: wolfe

            I shop at the Potrero Whole Foods all the time, but their eggplant parm just isn't what I'm used to. They prepare it as a single layer of thick slices of eggplant, and I'm used to several layers of thin slices. Thanks, though, for the suggestion.

          2. I hate to say it, but the Trader Joe's version (not frozen; in the refrigerator) are frigg'n amazing... I would buy six or eight of them and re-portion them in a large tray and re-heat in that fashion.
