“Meatballs are fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

I didn't think I was a fan of meatballs until I ate here. While they certainly had other things on the menu, I was committed to trying one of the signature meatball dishes. I really liked the way you could make your own meal combo by choosing what type of meatball you wanted (they even have veggie), what type of sauce you wanted (they can serve it on the side) and what you wanted underneath (pasta, greens, mashed potatoes, etc.). I chose pork meatballs, Parmesan sauce, and pasta and it was delicious! A friend tried the beef meatball, pesto sauce, and garlic mash potatoes and he liked that as well. I thought the beef meatballs were a little bland but the pork meatballs were wonderfully seasoned. Our only disappointment was that we wanted to have dessert and coffee and there weren't many options--no decaf coffee, no cream, no tea. In that regard they had a better selection on the alcoholic drink menu--more of a bar. This was a fun place to eat with a nice atmosphere and I will definitely be back!

“Fun Addition to New Haven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

A good solid reasonably priced family restaurant. Enough food to split an entre if you also order a salad. Visited twice and the food was consistent each time. Service is friendly, informative and attentive.

“Ok but would not recommend.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We were here for dinner. Pizza was not available and most beers were out as well.
So we ordered meatball sandwiches. The meatballs were good but 2 meatballs, very little sauce and a huge roll are not what make a great meatball sandwich.
Would not recommend or return.

“Good place to grab a quick bite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

This place is great if you like meatballs. They have a good selection that comes with a variety of sauces and sides. You can complement your meal with a glass of good beer. Overall, it's a great place grab a bite and relax.
