Arrabiata's Restaurant Review: Don’t let the commercial-looking building that houses Arrabiata’s put you off. Inside, this little Italian restaurant in a suburban strip plaza is sleek, and the service is friendly. Entrées come with a pile of spaghetti and a small, well-dressed salad. There isn't an unfamiliar item on the long menu, which references countless classics in the Italian-American repertoire. For a hearty dinner, try the cappellini primavera, a big bowl of pasta topped with fresh vegetables and a creamy Alfredo sauce with a touch of marinara, or the baked stuffed shells. Desserts are equally traditional; we like the cannoli. The restaurant has a full bar that makes a stiff martini, which pairs well with a dish that is smothered in the signature spicy, garlicky namesake sauce.
