Babbo booked for my birthday, need another Italian rec.

Hey all, so seperate from the post on my girlfriend's birthday, is this one for my birthday. She is trying to plan something Italian as it's my favorite, though unfortunately Babbo was already booked (I've never been). She temporarily booked Del Posto, but I've read so many reviews of people saying that the portions are small for how expensive it is, we don't need to spend $300 and leave hungry just because it's a "special" place. I've never really been to any of the high-end Italian restaurants in the city, so I'm looking for suggestions. We usually go to more low-key places like Malatesta, but she wants to take me somewhere different, so, suggestions? Perhaps something with a tasting menu?
