Meatballs: A Love Story

We've got your meatball cravings - from gourmet to classic - covered

Meatballs roll into our lives from happy places, like our grandmother's kitchen table or our family's favorite restaurant. Whether Swedish meatballs or Italian meatballs or the tiny ones floating in soup, everyone loves them. They are the ultimate comfort food. This month we pay homage to the humble meatball.


O Steak & Seafood

11 South Main St.


Kobe Beef O Pops

Appetizer: Kobe ground beef stuffed with blue cheese and bacon. Five little meatballs in a row on a pool of smoky chipotle aioli; five bites of ecstasy.



900 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria

50 Dow St.


900 Meatballs

Their secret ingredient? Red peppers. These appetizer-sized meatballs are served with Pomodoro sauce and crusty bread. Tip: ask for their fresh mozzarella melted over the top of the meatballs in the wood-fired oven.



The Market at Luca's

11 Central Square


Luca's Traditional Meatballs

Classic large meatballs made from hand-ground beef tenderloin, pork and cheese topped with Luca's fresh homemade tomato sauce. New best seller: his chicken meatballs with Buffalo sauce.

You can add them to pasta dishes for $2.50 or buy separately.

Marzelli's Deli

889 NH 103


Lou's Meatballs

When Lou's mother came over from Italy she brought her family's recipe for meatballs. Made with pork and beef, these balls are favorites of Oprah and Steven Tyler. Order meatball parm, meatballs in marinara, calzone with meatballs or spaghetti and meatballs with homemade marinara and see if you agree with the stars.

Prices vary as meatballs come in a number of dishes.
