Casa Mono vs. Peasant vs. Sorella

I posted earlier about planning for a sibling visit. And then it came! I took them to Dell'anima last night for dinner - so delicious. I thought the risotto was a little strange in texture, but the cabbage addition to the gnocchi was amazing. The bruschettas were hit or miss but a fun presentation. And the charred octopus. Oh my. I will dream of that for months. I love octopus, and this was just a great example of the dish cooked right!

For tonight, I have reservations at Peasant and Casa Mono (was covering my bases) and I was also considering Sorella, which I think has space. We are a group of 6, so kinda big for Casa Mono. On the other hand, Italian two nights in a row could be boring. But my brother is a picky eater - do any of you have experience at Casa Mono with a) a group of 6 or b) a somewhat picky eater? (steak is fine. sweetbreads, not so much - that sort of eater). I'd like to be more adventurous but I've only been to any of these restaurants on a date and on an off night, so I don't know how they would translate to a group on a Friday night... Thanks for any insight!
