Dined at Polpetta on Wednesday night. The service fantastic - brunette girl very friendly and helpful with some good laughs and personable service. The food - wow. Who would have thought meatballs could be so tasty! Well seasoned and sauces to match! But the cocktails.....adult spiders (I wanted to try them all!) And ice cream sandwiches with beautiful thick different flavors of cookies and wonderful choice of ice cream! Will be back again and again and again!

Finally got around to booking a table at this restaurant after finding it fully booked several times. still fully booked on the night we were there so looks like you need to book. especially Friday & Saturday nights.
Very impressed by the service & style of food. You can order 1, 2 or 3 balls & they are pretty big so 2 was heaps for me. They come served with pasta , salad or vegetables.
They cater for vegans, vegetarians & gluten free so have most bases covered. The waitress was very good at explaining how to order. We were a group of 7 & all throughly enjoyed our meals.

Fantastic experience here. We have heard great things but still had our expectations exceeded. Amazing staff, very friendly and attentive right from the minute you walk in - you need to book, this place is popular. Lots of food choices and waitress was fab at explaining how it worked and recommendations. Food is full of favour, inventive, fresh and tasty. Very clever use of ingredients to turn something very simple into fab food.

Had the pleasure of eating at Polpetta the meatball restaurant. Well worth it, the food was great, inexpensive and the staff were welcoming and friendly. Definitely worth a visit but make sure you book well in advance as it is soooooo popular.

I didn't go in with high expectations - I thought "who goes out for dinner and pays for meatballs?" - couldn't have been more wrong. The food is wonderful, prices much lower than expected and I can't wait to go back and try more of the selection. Really great atmosphere and friendly staff too.
