First time here, read some reviews so I was hoping to see for myself. The inside is clean I wont say it's romantic but not bad. The waite staff were very good. Now on to the finer points about this place. The food.... that was just OK, nothing to rave about. I had their parpedelli with meatballs and what they... More

Found this place by accident and so happy I did. The staff, menu, food, ambiance was awesome! I asked if they would make something for me from the dinner menu even though it was lunch and they were totally accommodating...Cant wait to go back....

There are so many Italian places to eat and many are good, but I found Goodfellas to be outstanding. My father was Italian so we ate a lot of Italian food with recipes from my Italian grandmother who immigrated to American as an adult. The food at Goodfellas tasted like the food I knew, starting with fresh stuffed baked artichoke... More

I love this place. So busy on a Saturday night at 5:30. We had the tomato, eggplant, mozzarella appetizer and the clams casino. Amazing. My wife and I both had the signature dish of cognac filet. It's filet mignon topped with lobster sitting a portobello mushroom with Gorgonzola cream sauce. To die for. I love this place.

We love a good Italian meal, and being from out of town were very excited about all the options in an area with many good family owned original Italian restaurants. By looking at reviews, we chose Goodfellas. I think we made the wrong choice. The service was We waited forever for service all through a 2 hour dinner before having... More

Appetizers were awesome burr at a and eggplant rollatini. Beggars purse was good too. Veal saltimbocca was awful, no flavor or spices, very little prosciutto. Did get a refund upon complaint, but then got bad attitude from server and they threw away my wife's leftovers initially. Manager was very accommodating and they did make another portion for her. I will... More

What can I say? As always, the food is outstanding. My honey and I snuck away for a little us time on a Sunday afternoon. Our waiter Jason was awesome. We both ordered the special Scallops and shrimp over vermicelli. Ma'Dawn!!!..getting ahead of myself. First came the warm bread. In between was the salad. Then the freshly made brushetta. 😘... More

The diner with four glasses of wine and one desert plus tip was $150 so was it worth it? Yes, good service great food I think only a couple of things could change. It seems the back door opens and lets in a ton of cold air in the winter and who ever smokes outside there makes the smell come... More
