    Pleasantly surprised! In Westwood for a show, chose randomly. Very comfortable ambience. Great service. Homemade pasta is excellent, cooked perfectly, sauces are tasty. Modi Prosecco was light and bubbly. Very reasonably priced! Will be back!

    The food was delicious....2 of our party are vegetarian and we really enjoyed the butternut squash ravioli and eggplant meatballs with pasta. Our wait staff was attentive and polite, the food was ready quickly. The calamari appetizer was delicious and fresh.

    First time there, we loved it. I was so relaxed I could have stayed there all day, I ate everything (chicken Marsala n potatoes n bread) in front of me. Service excellent, too. Music was perfect.

    Such a cute spot! We sat outside in the back where it had a cute vibe. The Alfredo was to die for. Ravioli with spinach was delicious as was the arugula salad. I’d go back just for that salad everyday.

    Had wanted to try this place just because of the name, and then came Covid. Our server was VERY helpful and upbeat. The food was extremely good (salad, a combined pork/beef meatball dish and an eggplant meatball dish) and an outstanding value. This will now be high among our moderately priced places to eat.

    The food was delicious, our server was great. The arugula salad app and butternut squash entree were tasty! We came in 30 minutes before close so the restaurant was not full. At peak time, I think it would be loud.

    The relevant things to know are they serve decent comfort food with generous servings at a very reasonable price. The relatively limited menu allows the kitchen to achieve excellent results. We were impressed with the number of takeout orders being picked up. If you want a good basic pasta dinner with friendly service at a bargain price, this is your place.

    House of Meatballs is a super charming, family style Italian restaurant with a strong wine list and a great menu. The food is excellent and the signature meatballs (eggplant, pork, meat) are all outstanding. The service is about average, but the rest of the experience is much better than I expected for a medium priced restaurant. Would recommend to anyone who likes Italian food.

    The food is always good here. I had the meatballs with arrabiata sauce. It was quite spice, which I like. There is a nice little dinner salad. The half portion is enough for 2. Don’t miss the cannoli for dessert.

    Food and service were phenomenal from the host/manager (?) who immediately greeted us upon entry to the service staff that had my table for a party of 5 ready in seconds before our very eyes, to the server who’s recommendations were great. We were a party of 5 that came in an hour before closing and had a few difficult guests but she held her own. If only I remembered her name. This was my first time back since 2019 and can’t wait to return again.

    I thought a place called house of meatballs would have delicious flavored meatballs but my pork ones were bland and the meal overall was not very good and cost $50 for 2 people. My husband had beef meatballs and he didn't notice the taste because his dish was too spicy. Drinks were in a can and $3.50 with no refills and the service was mediocre. We were disappointed and won't be going back.

    We LOVE House of Meatballs! This is our "UCLA graduation tradition" and we are always greeted with exceptional service, delicious food, and a wonderful experience overall. We had made a reservation to celebrate our daughter's UCLA graduation and the ceremony was running longer than expected. I called to tell them this, and they were so accommodating! We came directly from the ceremony to find our reserved table ready and waiting for us and cheerful service greeting us! Seriously, this is one of our favorite restaurants, as the food is absolutely fabulous and the employees are consistently friendly and top-notch. We will definitely be back!!!!
