About The Meatball Bar - Leederville

The only thing better than one delicious meatball is two delicious meatballs (or maybe three – watch this space for a third outgrowth from the popular pair), and Perth residents have exactly that on their hands thanks to the The Meatball Bar brothers. Nestled comfortably enough and almost side by side in Mount Lawley and here in Leederville, jostling with a host of other restaurant options at the busy strip along Oxford Street and Newcastle Street. If you like to roll in an international way, then The Meatball Bar is a place you need to pocket swiftly, with regulars from the so-called Ballers Club laying their hands on tables as if they were Faberge eggs, reason being chiefly the well-rounded menu... Salivating yet? Read on, or simply book a ball now!

Further Information

Take a peek at The Meatball Bar’s 5 Balls For 5 Bucks deal!

The Meatball Bar (TMB to intimates) in Leederville rolled into view in 2015, softly setting down on Newcastle Street, close to the corner with Oxford Street at what’s become a thriving retail and entertainment hotspot in the City of Vincent, just an underarm bowl from Perth’s city centre. The handsome pair of Meatball Bars was whipped into shape by enterprising restaurateur and culinary all-rounder Giovanni Pezzano, keen to show off his intuition that the Italian meatball, provided it was massaged into being from premium grade meats and carefully selected flavours, could surpass any dry-aged grain-fed Wagyu steak bosh touted from restaurant menu to restaurant menu the length of the land. Here, everyone of the wide-ranging international cuisines available to the kitchen is served as a ball, ensuring (and we quote) that every guest enjoys a mouthful of exceptional flavours.

Let’s get the ball rollin’, Leederville! Append balls to any of the following international falvours: deep-fried bocconcini cheese with cashew and basil pesto for a real Italian kick, Malaysian peanut satay chicken and pork or red Thai curry beef with kaffir lime, caramelised papaya and toasted coconut to pay homage to Australian cuisine’s deep rootedness in Asian culinary traditions. Going further, bigger billiards listed under ‘Sexy Balls’ include the traditional Italian breed, Middle eastern pumpkin with Jersey feta, and sundry balls featuring the flesh of bull, pig, chicken, lamb and bull, including the tantalising pulled beef with sour cream and then some. Even things out with ‘A Little on the Side’ and give yourself a happy ending with a Sweet Desiraball like the deep-fried Oreo (balls) drizzled with warm pouring custard. Just trust us, if you want to get game at The Meatball Bar, indulging in Perth’s finest globular gastronomy washed down with a good mouthful or three from the crafty beer, winning wine and cracking, ahem, cocktail list, you’ll need to reserve a round at this restaurant in advance. Let the good times roll!

Last night was the first time I experienced The Meatball Bar in leederville and I already know it won't be the last. The service was good, the food was very delicious and we didn't have to wait that long for it to be brought out, despite the fact that the place was packed. I would recommend going there, just be aware that you have to leave the restaurant and go through the dodgy car park at the back to get to the toilets.

A Super-friendly, cheerful and helpful team of people to look after us - and superb food. It was Friday night and the place was very busy. There were no delays with service and it was clear from looking around all the tables that everyone was having a great night out. This was my/our first time there and it is definitely going to be a favourite from now on.

Had a lovely dinner at the Leederville restaurant. Was a very busy and full night. Hence why some of our drinks and food took a bit longer to come out but were very satisfied once they did come out. When we went to pay, some of our drinks were comped which we were quite surprised and very happy with. Will definitely be back there - food was divine and the Nutella cocktail was amazballs :)

Who knew meatballs could be so exciting! Every single meatball dish was absolutely amazing! Even the cocktails and mocktails were tasty and more interesting than the standard ones you'd find on most menus. The staff are super friendly and very on top of everything. This was my 2nd awesome experience here and I will keep going back again and again!

The leederville Meatball Bar was pleasant. The staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to cater for us, and apologise when one of our plates didnt come out with the rest. But my favourite of the night was the mushroom balls, lots of flavour. On of the ladies had the main beef dish and she said it was really dry. so maybe more flavour needs to go into them i would say. Definately worth a visit, but wouldn't say it is a favourite.

We loved the Meatball Bar. Sitting outside amongst all the activity bustling around Leederville made for some interesting people watching. The waitstaff were attentive and the meatballs were delicious. Happy hour was also a bonus with 5 meatballs for $5. The highlight for me though would have to be the Salted Caramel Martini! Mmmm so good!

Despite the meatballs being really ... really small, they were so yummy and the service was great. We had the mac and cheese balls which were our favourite. Alongside the mushroom ones, wagyu beef and back olive ones. All were so good and we had to order 6 dishes for the 4 of us (we ended up ordering 4 and then ordering 2 more later).

Awesome food. I am not a huge fan of meatballs but our group had some mains to share and they were delicious :) The only weird thing was the mistakes on the cocktail menu (alcohol was listed under each one) and that the waitress didn't seem to think that this was weird...

We had a lovely meal, even our two fussy kids enjoyed their 'balls'. We all enjoyed the pulled lamb shank balls, the mac and cheese balls, the mini burger balls and the chorizo and potato balls. and The deep fried oreo's for dessert were delicious.

Good service. Awesome deals. We visited on a Wednesday night and got 2 free desserts and 2 free espresso martinis because we ordered entree/main x2. Maybe not enough food for 4 people, but that's only because I wanted more delicious balls! Flavoursome food. Great atmosphere.

Very good food, quick service. The kids loved the Mac'n'cheese balls and the traditional. One plate of the meal is a very good size portion for an adult, and if you order the share balls, you can even just share a meal!

Great food, wine and excellent service. The flavour combinations were very well matched in the dishes we had. My favourite was The Colonel's Balls. Very authentic flavours in the Italian meatballs also. The only reason for not giving a 6 was a dirty wine glass. Definitely would go there again.

Service was a little shaky but they were so busy with only two people serving that I didn't mind too much. The 3 courses for $29 is unbelievable and the food is great. Great selection of European wine and a unique cocktail list. A must try!

Amazing food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely be back!! Even though our table wasn't ready when we arrived through no fault of theirs but rather other late customers, we received complimentary starters and drinks whilst we waited.

The seating is the only downfall, we had a reservation for 3 and we were outside on a table that was only just big enough for 2 & we were seated practically on top of other people at the restaurant next door

The Nutella martini is the best and the food is always great. Only down side was our group of 3 being seated on a very small table and struggling to fit our food and drinks comfortably on the table.

Was going to go to the Fremantle location for the all you can eat Monday offer but choose the Leederville location & enjoyed the happy hour. Would have like the Fremantle offer but was still happy with our meal.

Unbelievable food, great service. Well done. Black Angus meatballs were unreal! The ballers club offer was great value for money. Kids meatball looked great also. It was quite noisy but I think it added to the atmosphere.

Great atmosphere and food was delicious. Yummy cocktails too. Worth a visit if you are in the vicinity or just wanna have some meatballs goodness. Small parties are probably best as space is a bit intimate.
