Best Bite: Chicken Braciolettine at The Saucy Meatball

Our food editor selects the best dishes in Southwest Florida.

Vanessa Rogers


There are some nights when we want our jaws to drop and let out a gasp each time a new plate of food arrives—but there are others when we crave the familiar. Satisfying that urge, specifically for red- or cream-sauced anything, has been Fort Myers’ Two Meatballs in the Kitchen. Now, there’s another more intimate outpost from the same family in the Gateway, called The Saucy Meatball. The café looks just as enticing as it sounds, with a lovely shaded patio, airy interior and large bar. What Saucy’s offering diners is in the same vein as her older sibling, with Parmesans, calzones and New York-style pizzas (try the namesake with meatballs, mushrooms and ricotta). But she’s got something else to make you swoon: unique dinner specials, like the scaloppine pictured here rolled with provolone, prosciutto and roasted garlic in a garlic-infused cream sauce.
