Description: The Meatball Pizza & Pasta delivers the fun experience that dining should be. The restaurant offers great Italian inspired food, attentive servers and moderate prices coupled with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Our open kitchen prepares flavourful pasta dishes, stone-hearth oven thin crust pizzas, tantalizing meat and vegetarian entrees and a variety of house made appetizers and delicious desserts!

“Mixed feelings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The food came way too quick. Hardly ordered and it was there.
Waitress was ok but she studied a bit too hard on her lines. She went from table to table sounding like a mantra.
My husband had the spicy penne (he disliked it very much) and I had the ravioli, and thought it was really nice.
What we both found a problem was the wine. We both thought it was mixed with water.
Before we even had time to think about it or complain we got our food, the bill and were outside again.

Not for us!

“Great Atmosphere, Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We had dinner at The Meatball on March 13/13, Isla was our server who was excellent, attentive but not overbearing. The food was excellent, served piping hot and full of flavour. The wine list had excellent prices, great value. Would highly recommend The Meatball for good casual italian dining.
