You’ll hear a lot of people say that Spaghetti and Meatballs is a purely American phenomenon; that Italians don’t eat spaghetti and meatballs together.
In fact, spaghetti and meatballs couldn’t be more Neapolitan.
Where owner and executive chef Joe Buonincontri grew up in Brooklyn, they still make their sauce (the “gravy” as it used to be called in Italian-American parlance) they way they do in Naples in the Old Country.
Meatballs, sausage, and often other cuts of meat are braised all day long in tomato sauce. The meats impart their savory flavor to the sauce while the tomatoes give sweetness and natural acidity to the meats.
