There will be about 10 of us for mother's day. One of the moms prefers Italian, but not red sauce. Heard mixed things about Barbuto, have been to Peasant and Bottino several times, willing to go back. never been to 50 Carmine. We'd prefer downtown, and not LES if possible (for convenience's sake). It'd be good to know, too, if the pizzas are good at whichever spot you suggest. Thanks!
