2. Harry's Pizzeria
Harry's might be the little sibling of Michael's Genuine Food & Drink, but the flavors of this pizza cafe hold their own Harry's meatball ($6), ordered as an appetizer, comes with enough bread for two people to dip into. A perfectly delicious few bites of meat filled with subtle spices and cheese are served in a wonderful red sauce. Don't even try to save your carb allowance for the pizza you've ordered. Just enjoy your meal and remember that tomorrow's another day.

1. Macaluso's
It probably comes as no surprise that the meatball at Macaluso's comes in at number one on our list. Chef-owner Michael D'Andrea serves his beef balls "Staten Island style," in a traditional red sauce that would make any self-respecting Italian mama proud. If those meatballs taste a little like home, they should. The recipe has been in D'Andrea's family for decades. Yo! If the cart ain't broke... fuhgeddiboudit!

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!
