Mid-week lunch for 35-40 Italians around WTC

Hi, my mother has a tour group of about 35-40 older Italians (60+ years old) that she is taking by bus to the WTC Memorial in mid-September. Any suggestions where they can eat? They prefer Italian and a max of $15-20/person. They will most likely only have water/ice tea to drink.

Thank you!

    I haven't been to Gigino at Wagner Park but my Italian ex-pat friends have recommended it highly.

        Being Italian I personally wouldn't reccommend Gigino.. What about trattoria cinque? It's at walking distance from WTC, it has separate rooms for big parties of people, tha ambience is nice and the food is good..
