Rigatoni’s is a rare fast-food Italian spot, with an order-at-the-counter menu that doesn’t sacrifice flavor for price. Classic pasta entrées, such as fettuccine Alfredo and spaghetti and meatballs, are made to order and hover around $8, with kid-size portions at $5.50. The eponymous rigatoni Bolognese is a standout, with bits of mild Italian sausage, pear tomatoes, and fresh garlic tossed in a cream sauce that isn’t heavy. Flavors zip toward spicy for the Cajun chicken sandwich and Cajun risotto special, with mushrooms, roasted peppers, and tarragon. Skip the garlic bread appetizer, which was disappointingly bland, and indulge at the free self-serve bread bar, with three different types of bread, plus butter and olive oil. Lunch and dinner daily.
