I was dragged here by a friend during my last visit, and having only recently returned to eating meat after a year of vegetarianism, I was reluctant to pull up a chair to a plate of meatballs. Well, I wouldn't be able to return to the non meat-eating world now knowing meatballs this good existed in the world. I was blown away. This unassuming, rather small shop was a total surprise. Reasonably priced, surprising combinations like pesto meatballs, quick service and an overall wonderful experience. It will be the first place I go on my next trip to NYC!

Went to the Meatball shop in Brooklyn on a tour and it was awesome!!! Meatball subs will never be the same in my eyes.

Excellent food - extremely fresh, flavorful and lots of options. Waitress was very patient and explained it all as there are different meatballs and sauces. Had the spicy pork with classic tomato sauce and a daily greens salad I wished every restaurant had. Loved the atmosphere of the place (64 Greenwich Ave). Had the ice cream cookie dessert - next time we'll share one as we were stuffed.

The Meatball Shop is a great concept and a fantastic experience from start to finish. You get to customise your dish completely and everything we tried was delicious. One warning though - make sure you are prepared to wait as they don't take bookings (they don't have to!) and so the wait can sometimes be 1.5 hours. Definitely worth the wait though - YUM!
