This place was close to our hotel, so we decided to go for it. I thought how good could meatballs be? The answer: SO GOOD!! Seriously, better than your Italian grandma's meatballs! I had pork with Parmesan cream, but the classic is really good too....More

We came here for dinner and had two different dishes with different sides. You have a good choice of different kinds of meatballs, sauces and sides. Many different drinks are available, too. Drink prices are ok, the meals are a little expensive in my eyes,...More

Service is great. Fun concept- select from several options of meatballs, sauce and then if you want them over pasta, veggies or “naked”. Salad options were great too. Simple food with tons of flavor in a cool space.

Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
