Chicken Pomodori was spaghetti pasta with grilled chicken breast, fresh tomatoes and basil, garlic butter, Romano cheese, and olive oil.  It was basic plain tasting.

Rigatoni Bologanese had huge rigatoni (tube) pasta and sauce was creamy but a bit spicy from the Italian Sausage.

Chicken/Artichoke/Sun-Dried Tomato Fettucine had regular “find it anywhere” grilled chicken breast and was a bit oily from the sauce, but I’m a sucker for sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts.

The kids loved their Mac and Cheese.

Their unlimited bread bar has great brown rye bread and they have good take-out containers (although you get less amount of food because it’s limited by the size of the container and the dine-in plates are bigger).

It also doesn’t hurt that they’re within walking distance of our house.  Rigatoni’s also does group fundraisers where your group gets 20% if they write down the name of the organization on the back of a customer’s receipt.

Rigatoni’s has some small outdoor seating facing the boulevard when the weather is nice and shades for the restaurant when the sun is going down.
