If we're including all cuisines, the lions head at Shanghai Gate is the greatest meatball ever created.

I have to agree with Stewart. Lion's Head is the best meatball ever, and Shanghai Gate makes the best ones I have eaten.

Anchovies in the South End and Italian Express Pizzeria both nail the meatball+sauce combination perfectly. The former was one of the few places I was permitted to go in the South End when I lived there (they let anyone in) and their rigatoni with meatballs and spicy sausage is just so good.

Great meatballs abound in Boston! Love the fact that so many places serve them they way nature intended and not in a nest of gummy spaghetti.
