Italian Recommendation on the UWS

Hi NYC-Hounders,

I'm visiting next week from London. I used to live in Manhattan, so know my way around the city a little bit. Just like real food, but since this is vacation and my Londoner husband's first time in NYC, I want to show him that New York can compare.

1. Looking for an old-style Italian, preferably on the UWS (we're staying at 79th & Columbus). The one place I can remember is Carmines. Any other suggestions? Want to show my husband NY/NJ Italian without actually trotting out to Long Island or Jersey.

2. New York style take away pizza-by-the-slice. Looking for a great slice of plain cheese pizza. Preferably UWS.

I also have the following down to visit next week. Your comments are welcome.
Striphouse for a special dinner out
Gotham Bar & Grill for dessert post-Striphouse
Buddakan for a group of us for a fun Saturday night
Gray's Papaya for a snack
Katz's for a lunchtime snack
H&H bagels for a "true" bagel
Chinatown icecream
Lalo's for dessert one late night
Drink at the Hudson Hotel (It was trendy in 2002 when I lived there)
Ocean Grill for an outside dinner

I am SOOOOOOOOO excited to be coming back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks in advance.
