The meatballs that come with the spaghetti and meatballs at Grotto are really serious. I'm not sure what goes into them (definitely a mixture of meat products), but I do know what comes out of them: an overpowering satiety.

Contrada's on Hanover St. They make a limited amount and you have to get there by 10AM to get your hands on them. How can you compete with that?
