Best Spaghetti and Meatballs

Looking for a mom and pop italian restaurant with really good spaghetti and meatballs. I find most italian restaurants don't even serve it and if they do, it's really bad. Anyone have any suggestions?
You'd probably get more interesting responses if you asked for people's favourite spaghetti & meatballs. With so many Italian restos in this city, who can say which has the best.
Whereabouts in the city are you looking? On the Danforth, Quattro Ragazze is family owned/operated and has spaghetti & meatballs on the menu. I haven't had it but everything else I've tried there has been really good.

I've always been a huge fan of Gamberoni. It certainly has the 'mom and pop' feel, what with the checkerboard table clothes and their tomato sauce and meatballs are both fresh and flavourful. Mmhmm. The prices are quite reasonable too. If I'm not mistaken, an order runs around 13$.
Also, if you happen to visit on a night where the osso bucco is offered (and not sold out), it's in your best interests to try it.

I've been a few times recently to 7 numbers on Eglinton and ordered their polpette (home made meatballs with cheese in the middle) and a side of their linguine with rapini in a home made tomato sauce (more like olive oil and roasted tomatoes). Anyway, the combination is fabulous, so if you crave pasta with meatballs, I'd highly recommend it :)
