    One of my favs for a quick good typical Italian meal. It's no more but definitely not less.

    I thought our waitress was joking when she mentioned a $0.50 surcharge for extra grated Parmesan. Shame on you Meatball Shop. Shame

    It's almost hard to find on the menu, but for a few more dollars you can get rigatoni with your meatballs. Spicy pork with spicy meat sauce, by the way.

    Not real Italian food. Sandwiches are pretty bare. Staff seems confused. Ok for a quick lunch necessity.

    Do not do takeout from here. They forgot 3 of the things we ordered and everything was cold. Used to come here a lot but quality is not what it used to.

    The Kitchen sink is a very sizeable portion. I added the egg thinking it would be dinky but I was off the money on that one!

    The food is delicious but this new bartender is nasty and dumb! He didn't know the food and refused to bring me my sandwich and a drink so I left. Spoke to him in Italian but he's from Mexico.

    I like the kitchen sink. You pick the balls and they do the rest.

    If you like meatball sandwiches, DO NOT HESITATE a visit. The "built your own food" menu style is easy, fun and flexible so you can build whatever you like best. Small but great beer selection.

    The buffalo chicken meatballs are OK - a little dry and not quite hot enough.

    One of the more overrated restaurants in the city. Below average meatballs and sauce... and this should be the resto's bread and butter (and one of my favorite dishes in the world). Major miss...

    The meatballs are obviously all delicious, but leave room for the chocolate ice cream. I come here every time I visit New York.

    If you are lucky enough to come on a day they have the Mac & Cheese balls special, that is what you must get.

    Spicy pork meatballs with spicy sauce and mozza cheese = hot, gooey, and delicious. Stretchy hot cheese is the best.

    Spicy pork, spicy meat sauce, on the hero. Provolone cheese. Get a slider of whatever the special is too. Mashed potatoes (I know) are excellent. Ice cream sandwiches are awesome.
