Spaghetti and meatballs?

It's so cheesy, so retro, so....potentially delicious. The cold weather has given me a craving for comfort food. Is there anywhere in Manhattan (especially Midtown) anymore where this dish can be had, and is done well?

  1. La Masseria on 48th and 8th makes a pretty good meat sauce w/ meatballs and sausage. I don't remember if it's on spaghetti or something else, and it's a bit pricey ($14 or so). But it is in midtown!

    1. Crispo has a good version. It's not on the regular menu, but it shows up on the specials menu frequently.

      1. Le Zie on 7th ave and 20th st has a decent version.

          Try Pisticci on Lasalle and B'way. Their version is fantastic and cheap.

            Le Zie is proud of it. Their menu, instead of saying "Spaghetti and meatballs" says
            "Best Spaghetti and Meatballs in Manhattan" And maybe they're right, they're pretty darn good.

              I think the best is Antonucci's on the UES. Simple, really good!!!

          2. Piccolo Angolo makes a very popular version and the meatballs are enormous (almost softball size) and a good deal for 17 bucks...but the downside is that when i went there last time the place was painfully loud...

            1. Le Zie is totally overrated their meatballs are small and taste strange and the spaghetti looks like it was reheated in a frying pan
