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 zuppa di pesce, a big bowl of pasta topped with shrimp, calamari, whitefish, clams and mussels, or the eggplant rollatini stuffed with creamy ricotta and topped with a sweet, house-made marinara. The restaurant has a full bar that makes a stiff---very stiff---martini, which pairs well with anything smothered in its signature spicy, garlicky namesake sauce.
