Neighborhood Italian - Chandler/Tempe/Ahwatukee

So...after my Papa Razzini question I guess I should go at this from teh other angle as well...

What are folk's recommendation for a good neighborhood italian place on this side of town?

We like Tutti Santi up at Dobson/Guadalupe a lot...but it's bit more than we like to spend if we're just in the mood for a casual plate of pasta so don't go as often as we might like. I really like the Linguine alle Vongole here but..again at $23 it's not necessarily a drop in when i don't feel like cooking kind of dinner.

I have to admit we eat at Pasta Pomodoro a lot since we live so used to be a good reliable, quick and inexpensive option. But the last year seems to have gone downhill and we've been disappointed the last few times we've gone. They made some changes a while back...and we've noticed the manager that originally opened the restaurant is gone so assume that's why. So it's not a neighborhood favorite anymore.

we've tried Marcello's at McClintock and Warner. i've always like the pasta with the calamari here...but that's all I've found I really like on the menu.

So...any suggestions on something tasty, casual and inexpensive that we may be missing?
