New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Spaghetti and meatballs are just the tip of the meatball iceberg at this Italian restaurant and bar on Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach. The little meaty orbs show up in a variety of traditional and eclectic Southern Italian dishes here. The crimson and gold decorated shotgun-style restaurant (it's one long room with tables surrounded by banquettes on one side and a large bar on the other) can get noisy when crowded and when the club side of things kicks in. Diners go for the sliders - meatball or chicken Caesar - and the group of panini. A long list of pastas and traditional plates like eggplant Parmesan, or chicken cacciatore, add to the choices. For dessert, try the dessert panini - a grilled croissant sandwiched with strawberries and chocolatey Nutella. Prices are moderate - neighborhood Italian like; there's a full bar. It's good for kids in daylight hours; families on Sunday for specials.
