LaRosa’s Andover – The One Pound Meatball

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of stopping in to LaRosa’s Café and Bar in Andover, MA. I’ve enjoyed lunch and events here before, but I’d not yet been in for dinner. When a friend posted a pic of LaRosa’s one pound meatball, I couldn’t get it off my mind.

Tony and I enjoyed a relaxing meal on the patio in LaRosa’s quaint outdoor seating area. While our mini-meal (two salads, one meatball) was delightful, I was most impressed with one question. Our waiter kindly asked if we would like bread for the table. Interestingly, I’ve never been asked that before. We weren’t all that hungry, so the answer was an easy no. But had that bread shown up, I would have eaten it. That’s just the way it is. So, I was happy to have had the right of refusal. It was a nice touch and seeing we couldn’t even finish the meatball, I was glad not to have filled up on bread.

Service was friendly, our salads were delicious (Tony got a unique take on a Caesar salad with shaved celery instead of romaine – quite good!) and the meatball with honey basil whipped ricotta was divine. Yummy!

If you’ve not been, LaRosa’s Andover is definitely worth a visit.
