Bar Roma

5101 N Clark St

Chicago, IL 60640

Andersonville is a lot of things; a dining destination is certainly one of them. Bar Roma is just one more reason to head north on Clark St. for house-made pasta, wood-fired pizza, and Italian-inspired craft cocktails. The specialty here is Roman-style cuisine, but the eclectic selection of meatballs is best described as global, rather than regional. The balls, listed on the menu as “Polpette,” include a variety of meat bases in addition to the traditional Italian ground beef meatball — like veal sweetbread meatballs, spicy pork belly meatballs, chicken and pistachio meatballs, and lamb merguez-style sliders. Start with the house spritz, try the hand-rolled pastas, and definitely add a fried egg to your order of balls.
