“Meatball heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I love meatballs and therefore I went to their Greenwich Ave restaurant after reading some recipies in their book. I loved it all. Simple, rustic, very tasty and no doubt about their fresh ingredients. I have not tried their East Village restaurant, but I would love to do it on my next NYC visit. My choice was the buffalo meatballs with spicy sauce - yum, yum, yum!

The idea of choosing combinations from a menu is great, and if you're lost, don't hesitate to ask for help.

“The Meatball Shop Slogan is "We Got Balls"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Well I would have to agree! The menu is direct and let's you choose what you want in regards to meat( beef, chicken, pork, or the special of the day) and mushroom, tomato, spicy tomato, parm cream, or pesto sauce. They have daily specials for rissotto, veggies, cookies,lemoades, & ice creams. They offer speciality cocktails as well and have 3 draught beer selections. Sixpoint Brewery makes for them exclusively the Wheatball beer which is very good! Everything we sampled we enjoyed! Get here early it does get packed quickly.

“Great food, amazing value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Simple menu system lets you select your meatball, sides and other additions.

The meatballs are EXCELLENT - try spicy pork!

Service was very friendy and the price seems like a bargain (I live in Sydney!).

You will not regret a visit to the Meatball Shop.
