I took 2 teenagers and we all liked the starter options and we shared. It’s a fun place and would come back.

I hate to give a bad review but we had a bad experience. My husband, toddler and I were seated upstairs and I should have asked to be seated on the main floor. The floor was slippery and the staircase was not safe for my toddler to walk around. The table felt slimy as well. We say for 25 minutes and nobody brought us water or asked us for our order so we left. Very disappointing.

Service was mediocre, our server was nice but it took about 20 minutes to get our first drinks and about 30 minutes before we actually were able to order. The food was decent but nothing special that I'd be excited to go back for.

I miss the vegetarian risotto ball. It's been replaced with a beyond meat ball. Not a fan.

We have been here many times, Friday night it was way to loud. I had to scream across the table to talk. They really need to lower the volume. I love the pretzel app but we got the pretzel bites this time and they were not good.

The food was better than we expected. Unfortunately we waited quite a long time to get our food. This was our first time dining at this restaurant and will return on a weekday when it’s less busy.

We waited an hour for our appetizer. When we asked when our entrees would be coming, the waiter said they were out of one of our dishes. An hour after we had ordered it! The sausage meatballs and lamb meatballs both had bones in it. At which point we gave up and left hungry. Not a great night!

That Meetball place is very similar in concept to the Meatball Shop in NYC which we enjoy. Pick your meatball, pick a sauce, etc. The service on Monday night was terrible. Forty five minutes until the appetizer arrived and another 30 for the main courses. The bruschetta came with a healthy serving of spinach artichoke dip but only a few slices of bread. Were we supposed to eat it with a spoon? The Tuscan was delicious, perfect risotto. The shrimp dish with broccoli rabe balls was advertised with crispy veggies. They were soggy and drenched in oil. The eggplant balls were delicious. Although the service was very slow ( we were told there was a party upstairs) the food was tasty. We will probably give them another try.

Reservations at this restaurant are worthless!!! I made my reservation on Wednesday for a party of 2 for that coming Sunday. On Friday I received an email asking me to confirm my Sunday dinner, which I did. On Saturday I received a phone call from the restaurant saying they were looking forward to seeing us and to please call back to confirm, which I did. OK, so far so good!
On Sunday my party and I showed up 5 minutes early, the restaurant was crowded which made me glad I had made a reservation. The party in front of us informed the woman at the front that they had a reservation, at this point they were informed that it was not possible to accommodate the seating they had requested but they could be placed later on when a table opened up in a different area. They ended up leaving. Long story short, now it was our turn to be disappointed . We left also!! Lucky for us that the Farmingdale area has an abundance of restaurants that are glad to seat you promptly without a reservation.

Great food and good service for sure. Sometimes crowded and sometimes empty so always glad to make a reservation when going on the weekend. Huge portions, always take a to go bag but always delicious. Great menu and lots of options.
