Cafasso Meatball Company – San Diego


Whhhhhheeeeeewwwwww! That is the sound of me dusting off this many month old post. It has been sitting in drafts for far too long. I don’t recall why we were up in the area because I rarely venture outside my zone, but Michael and I made it out to Cafasso Meatball Company many moons ago. It doesn’t normally look like that…I think. By now the construction should be done.

We opted for a family meal that came with a salad, garlic bread, meatballs, and ravioli. The salad was your standard green salad. Nothing too crazy to report.


The garlic bread also was a no frills type experience. There wasn’t a huge garlicky taste to it.


We were seeing a pattern here with simple, straight forward Italian food. The ravioli with meat sauce underwhelmed us a bit. It lacked seasoning and didn’t excite us too much.

The meatballs hopefully would turn things around. After all, it’s in their restaurant name! When it came out I was happy they labeled them for us so we didn’t have to guess what was what. To our surprise the turkey was our favorite by far. It was the only one that oozed juice from the center and we wished we ordered more of that variety. Second place went to bacon, which wasn’t as juicy but had bacon. The third and fourth almost tie with the spicy chicken and spicy pork. They were fairly dry. If it wasn’t for the sauce, I don’t think we would have enjoyed eating them.

You can’t really tell from the picture but I was trying to get some of the juicy goodness from the turkey meatball. I love meatballs in general but overall was disappointed in what we got here. Maybe they had an off day or we just didn’t order the right ones. It’s too bad because I like going to foo foo-less, simple places more than fancy joints. Oh well, we just gotta keep on eating to find the next happy meal!

About Darren

Fooood! I love it if you can't tell already. I love everything about it. The taste, the smell, the look, the feel, the satisfaction, the gratification, and ultimately: the fun! I've been in San Diego for about 10 years now and it amazes me that there are still places to uncover. Traveling, eating, and taking pictures of food has always been a hobby of mine. So naturally Michael and I thought it made sense to share what we found with all of you. I tend to side with the savory but never shy away from a knock out dessert. If you have a place you think we haven't tried let us know! We're always on the lookout...
