Donatella’s Lunch Menu Now Features Donatella’s Meatballs


The success earlier this year of her Midtown meatball wagon seems to have inspired Donatella Arpaia to take her balls south to Donatella, her new-ish pizzeria in Chelsea.

The fleshy orbs, which also netted Arpaia top honors at the New York Wine & Food Festival’s Meatball Madness in October, will now appear on the restaurant’s new lunch menu in the guise of its pizza sandwich. The sandwich is one of five saltimbocca sandwiches that are now available at the restaurant; their prices and descriptions follow after the jump.
