Catering help! ~80 people, ~$7-8 budget - Newport Beach/OC area

Hi All! The guys from my church want to help appreciate the gals from our church. We are looking to cater (because we can't cook complicated things well ... or at least reliably well). We were considering catering from Buca di beppo or Maggiano's and supplementing with a salad creation that we could probably conjur up. Italian is preferred.

We are trying to feed ~80 people but if there is less, the guys won't eat. =)

My first post on chowhound so I will try to provide details if we can. Budget right now is<$600 for ~80 folks. How can we feed ourselves cheaply but nicely as well?

Also, any dessert recommendations that are tasty and inexpensive and come in large amounts?
