Good Place for a Surprise Party in Brooklyn?

I am planning a surprise party for my dads 60th birthday. I'm looking for a nice place with good Italian food in Brooklyn, since we live on Long Island and most of his family lives in Staten Island.They are all Italian American, so i'm looking for some place that has good Italian food, and lots of room, the guest list is around 60-70 people right now.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not a picky eater I pretty much will eat anything but seafood.
From previous experiences I'll probably be working until 8-9 o'clock

I'm going to be in DC next week for work, and will be staying at the Madison on 15th and M street NW. I was wondering if there are any places nearby for a quick dinner.

Dinner and drinks next weekend

We're not really on any sort of set schedule, I think the plan right now is to leave my house (on long island) around 2 pm on Saturday, so we'll be in the city by 3. Walk around for a few hours and eat around 6 or 7ish. The time is flexible as well, as there is nothing really time critical that I have planned.

No allergies and we're not picky eaters, I'm thinking more of a casual place as we would rather spend money later in the evening. I would think no more than 130 before tax and tip for all 5 of us for dinner. I was thinking maybe Italian as its something we all enjoy. I'm not really set on any particular area, although i was thinking of going to the village for drinks afterwards so maybe some place around there.

As for drinks we're looking for beer and cocktails, no specific type of place though. We want to have fun with a crowd around our age, we haven't been out of college that long, however we don't want to feel old going to college spots.

The Texan who will be joining us was here once last summer and was more afraid of the city than I thought she would be. My goal is to show her how nice (and fun) the city can be (hopefully the weather will cooperate).

I have friends coming to visit next weekend from Philadelphia and Texas. One of which has never been to NYC. I'm going to take them to see Times Square and Rockefeller Center to see the Tree and then walk down 5th Ave and see the windows.

Any ideas on places for dinner, doesn't necessarily need to be around there?

We also are looking to go out after, I would like to take them someplace fun but not too overwhelming, we're all in our mid twenties and there will be 5 of us.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Cathy
