Randazzo's
6. Randazzo's Little Italy
Yo! If you want beautiful food served on fine bone china with a little swirl of pomegranate compote this is not your place. If, however, you're jonesing for the kind of food Tony Soprano or Frank Sinatra would sit down to eat, now you're talking. This rich Italian-American food is meant to be eaten with a lot of Chianti in unmarked bottles. The spaghetti with Sunday gravy ($14) is topped with meatballs made the old fashioned way -- a little pork, a little veal, a little beef, a little cheese, a little bread, and a lot of love. It's a staple in every Italian household and it's done right at Randazzo's.

This food truck specializes in balls. Meat balls, fowl balls, and veggie balls. The only Miami food truck that serves all-Italian cuisine, Mangia Mia is celebrating its first anniversary this coming July. We love the smasher, a pair of balls smooshed between two pieces of garlic bread ($7), but if you're not into carbs, go commando with balls sans bread for the same price.

C'mon!  This top 10 is a farse.  It is evident you have not done your research.  Cafe Avanti may be a quiet neighborhood restaurant nobody has heard about, but they have by far the best meatballs in Miami. Not having them on your list is a crime.  I have been a fan of Macaluso's for years and give them praise on their meatballs as well as for improving on their bad attitude.  The presentation of their meatballs is superior and their taste is is solid, defnitely worthy of a podium spot.  However, Cafe Avanti is the best meatball in town, moist, tender and with an amazing sauce.  Check them out and judge by yourself!
