I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and this is the AUTHENTIC Meatball Sub that you would get in South Philly. See my Marinara Sauce of Alan Leonetti (2 Servings) (((The Best))) for the marinara sauce. If you have any questions, e-mail me:

Bravo! I'm making these today for the second time in two weeks. Great base meatball that can be easily altered to compliment any sauce.
