Celebrate Meatball Day and get some great comfort food from these Beavercreek restaurants.

Meatball Day isn't one of the big national holidays, but that doesn't mean you should avoid it! Celebrated on March 9, this holiday cherishes all things subs, spaghetti, or pizza. Our REALTORS® recommend you head out to these local Beavercreek Italian restaurants for a great meal.

  • Marion's Piazza – 1320 N. Fairfield Rd., Beavercreek, OH

It's even been named the top independent pizza restaurant in the nation by Pizza Today magazine. So what are you waiting for? You can get your fill of meatballs with the restaurant's meatball sub, which also includes spaghetti sauce, parmesan cheese, and onions, or try the spaghetti with meatballs.

Several gourmet pizza options are also offered, including a Meat Lover's Pizza covered in meatballs, pepperoni, sausage, ham, and bacon, or a Veggie Lover's Pizza with tomatoes, onions, spinach, green peppers, black olives, and mushrooms.
