4. Sardinia Enoteca
Sardinia's atmosphere calls for a group of friends enjoying some good wine while dining on boards of cheese, mounds of pasta, and some good meatballs. The polpettine ($14) is a tender veal meatball with braised fennel. Like the rest of the plates at Sardinia, the meatball is light and tender, leaving you room for several more dishes -- and lots more wine.

3. Tudor House
Tudor House's meatball is so good, we know a friend who orders only them as if they were an entree. Truth be told, the tender meatball, served in a crock with grilled rustic bread, could serve as a wonderful lunch. The only problem is that whenever the meatball arrives, the entire table digs in as if everyone were entitled -- to your meal! Order as a side ($12) or as an entree with spaghetti ($21). Either way, tell your friends to back off and get their own.

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!
