Babbo dish recommendations please (researched)!!

Hello, 6 of us are planning to go to Babbo for dinner. Based on the enormous amount of information that was available here, I've narrowed it down and was hoping to get some advice on the same. From what I've read the general advice seems to be 6 apps, 6 pastas, 3 entrees and desserts. We'd like to share and try multiple things but some dishes seem to be extremely popular so for those I have doubled the portions. Are there any others where the tiny portion sizes would warrant additional portions? I was not able to figure out 6 apps that I liked so I have 4 portions of apps and 8 portions of pasta. Is that OK?

Thanks a lot everyone!
