The Meatball & Wine Bar is celebrating its 10th birthday

Melbourne’s foremost artisan meatball establishment, The Meatball & Wine Bar is celebrating its 10th anniversary from 17 – 24 October. In light of this milestone, The Meatball & Wine Bar extend an invitation to a week of celebration and specials at their Flinders Lane restaurant.

The ‘Best of Ballers’ special on offer during their birthday week, features their most popular dishes and desserts at $60pp.

Inspired by owner Matteo Bruno’s mother’s Venetian heritage, all meatballs are gluten-free and served with a sauce and side. Choose from beef, pork, chicken, fish and vegetable meatballs. There are also mouth-watering Wagyu meatball sliders with caramelised onion, smoked mozzarella and fennel slaw, garlic bread, pear and parmesan salad, then their delectable tiramisu to finish.

Keep the wine flowing with their broad selection to pair with your meatballs inspired by his father’s roots in Piemonte. How does a Sangiovese from Terre Di Chieti sound? Or a crisp and refreshing Fiano from McLaren Vale?

Situated in a thoroughfare of fine dining, Matteo founded The Meatball & Wine bar from a desire to find a bar with wholesome Italian food and great wine, to immediate success. Recipes at The Meatball & Wine Bar have effectively remained unchanged since its opening in 2012, with the guiding principles of providing high-quality ingredients and the finest Italian wine establishing a loyal base, affectionately named ‘Ballers’.

These timeless recipes were such a success that Matteo released a recipe book called Epic Meatballs for lovers of The Meatball & Wine Bar to recreate these ‘next-level meatball recipes’ at home. Now in its second re-print from Murdoch Books, Epic Meatballs has become increasingly popular amongst Melbourne foodies and beyond.

The Meatball & Wine Bar provides a cosy and friendly atmosphere created by the close bond of the workers, some of which have worked for The Meatball & Wine Bar for the duration of its life. It is considered a place for family and is also where owner Matteo met his wife.

The Meatball & Wine Bar, unlike many less fortunate restaurants, thrived through the pandemic thanks to their loyal ‘Ballers’. Adapting to home delivery, they were producing over 300 meals per week. The experience of working together, creating meals, packaging and even going as far as hand written notes for their customers not only brought the team at The Meatball & Wine Bar closer, but the community too.

Celebrate the loyalty, deliciousness and care for this Flinders Lane staple during their birthday week of specials 17-24 October.
