One of my favorite memories growing up was going to Esposito's restaurant with the family. It's always been in the same spot at 1335 Congress Street in Portland. I remember when the entrance was in the front of the building and we would stand in line to get some delicious Italian food.

In 2003 Esposito's went under new management and became Espo's Trattoria. Although the name was changed, it is still a family-owned and run restaurant. The service and quality of the food remains impeccable. There were a few changes to the restaurant, including moving the main entrance to the side of the building, and making the meatballs bigger...much bigger. Needless to say I was thrilled when I had the chance to share my favorite place to get meatballs with you. I was seriously full for hours after devouring that delicious mound of meat.
