I can’t for the life of me figure out why I came to Spiga, in New Canaan, so intent on getting the meatballs.

I didn’t find myself at Spiga.

I went there.

Intent on meatballs.

Maybe I saw someone else post or review Spiga and rave about the meatballs.

Maybe I was trying to find something to review for national meatball day.

Who knows, but the meatballs here are a mystery.

Why a mystery?

First, the meatballs themselves are wonderful.

They are super juicy and flavorful. A nice fresh parsley helps round out the meat.

The marinara sauce they are in?


I’ll say it again.

The marinara sauce is garbage.

I kept wanting it to be better.

It’s basically tomato paste thinned down to an almost homemade ketchup.

This bodes poorly for a restaurant that seems to have lots of dishes using this sauce.
