Marathon Meal--A Mano, The Italian Barrel, or Cafe Giovanni

Hello All,
I am heading down to NO next Saturday for the Rock N Roll Marathon and need a nice carb loaded Italian meal for the evening before the race. Unfortunately I have waited too late, it seems, to make a reservation at my choice of restaurant as 14,000 other people have also decided to eat the same type of food! The choices I have left are A Mano, The Italian Barrel, and Cafe Giovanni. Which of these should I go with? I have read all the mentions of the above restaurants on this board, but there wasn't alot of info. We won't be able to induldge in wine, creamy sauces, etc., that we normally do, so please consider that when making recommendations. Thanks and we can't wait to get the race over with so we can properly revel in all that New Orleans has to offer! :)
