White table linens. Waiters dressed in matching uniforms. Menu items adorned with ingredients such as basil vinaigrette, feta cheese and yogurt dressing, and a lemon/butter white wine sauce.

 

          Sounds like the kind of place that might break the bank, right? Not so. Rigatoni Italian Cuisine, located in a neighborhood strip mall at Skillman and LBJ, is not only delicious and elegant-if-not-extravagant, but reasonably priced, with most dinner entrees averaging between $9-$11.

 

          Though owner and Lake Highlands resident Carlos Trejo was born in Mexico City and grew up in , it’s Italian food that he loves (his mother is Italian). And he takes great pride in serving up authentic, mouth-watering plates of food with pretty presentation, as evidenced by the Chicken Pesto — a house specialty
