"Originally opened in 1897, Lombardi's was licensed 8 yrs later in 1905 by the City of New York & became America's First Pizzeria. 1 of their featured signature toppings is their homemade meatballs, also lovingly featured on their main menu as "Grandma's Meatballs". Grandma's Meatballs (a combo of beef & pork) got a 3rd chance to shine when Lombardi's John Brescio created this outstanding & easy-fix meatball dip certain to be a crowd-pleaser. ENJOY!"
