Whether you enjoy eating meatballs on pizza, your favorite pasta, or as an appetizer, several local restaurants have you covered. They make their meatballs from scratch, and their creations will have you coming back for more.

The restaurants serving the best meatballs around our Cambridge apartments include:

Bar Enza

A lively restaurant, Bar Enza boasts beautiful mid-century decor. It calls the Charles Hotel home. What’s more, it was one of the area's most anticipated Italian restaurant openings of 2021.

The chefs partner with local farms and purveyors and create the dishes from the finest, freshest ingredients. Don't miss sampling the meatball gigante. Found on the appetizer menu, it features veal, beef, pork, tomato sugo, smoke shop barbecue, and a potato puree.

Nico Ristorante

A North-End legend, Nico Ristorante is one of Zagat's "Best Italian Restaurants in Boston." The famed culinary team prepares from scratch. They use locally sourced produce and create a menu of "artfully sophisticated, yet approachable surprises."

Enjoy Mamma Rosetta's famous meatball. It comes topped with Parmigiana, wild mushrooms, pomodoro sauce, and whipped ricotta. Nico Ristorante is currently open Wednesday through Sunday, from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.


Anthony Caturano opened Prezza when he was 25 years old. Today, the restaurant is one of Boston's premier destinations for delectable dishes and the best wine in the city.

The menu boasts everyday favorites as well as nightly specials, so you'll always find something new to try. Be sure and sample the homemade meatballs. Fresh from the oven, they feature ribs, sausage, polenta, and San Marzano tomatoes.

After enjoying some meatballs, find a sweet treat at a local chocolate shop. When you're considering calling Luxe at Alewife home, please contact us. Our team will schedule a tour where you can see the amenities and floor plans our apartments in Cambridge have to offer.
