We were eating at Goodfellas several times now and everybody was impressed with the quality of the food and the attention to detail. The first thing that came to mind when walking through the door was........yes, here I want to eat. Cosy, not pretentious and...you just get the feeling of coming home. The various food choices are absolutely adequate ,meaning everyone can find something to his/her liking. The mixed appetizer platter, the Pasta with asparagus are just outstanding. But for me the Steak Rossini was the absolute highlight. Perfectly done with a flavourful piece of fois gras on top and a sauce to die for. Chef Antonio knows what he is doing and his love for cooking shows in his dishes. The staff at Goodfellas is friendly, attentive and highly professional. I have to point out one person and that is Joy. She made the whole group laugh and provided first class service with attention to everbodies wishes, that left nothing to be desired. Joy has this easygoing professionalism that you can not learn. ( You have it or you dont ) Extremely knowledgable about the food and wine they serve, she can help you make your stay at Goodfellas a memorable one. If you want some really good italian food and wine in Shanghai.......... there is NO way around Goodfellas. Just my humble opinionMore

In town for the weekend and heard this was great pizza. Amazing pizza and huge bread sticks. Great atmosphere. Cannoli was amazing. Going back tomorrow to get a whole pie to bring back home.

Been coming here for a while now, and what was excellent is, dare i say, a tad bit...tired? The menu is still deep and offers good variety with some regional classics, and the osso bucco is pretty damn good, the meat soft, falling apart, the...risotto Milanese rich, buttery and the saffron aromatic; a delicious dish for sure. The shared appetizer plate is solid, but here is where the tiredness comes in: it has barely evolved if at all, and whilst there's a philosophy of 'if it ain't broke don't fix it', i cant help wishing it had more exciting tasters: some fritto misto instead of the potato salad seafood,, or caprese salad instead of a cherry tomato on a skewer, and some decent meatballs that are actually meaty and not so floury, so soft and flavourless -could olivini-stuffed and fried olives- be a better more interesting option? But overall, a solid dish that is nothing special, yet satisfying. Dishes are pre-prepped so hence the ho hum nature of the dish. Wines are also solid, with around a 300% mark up, so pays to know your stuff. 400 RMB gets you entry level. But there is some interest here, and you pay for it. That's fine. One curious thing: we were seated in a noisy area next to the cashier, so constant disruptions to what was going to be a cosy night. Asked to move to a more secluded table, but told they were reserved, even though i booked a table. I wasn't aware one could book certain tables.Be good to know next time. Wish we could have been seated somewhere less intrusive, and felt pressure to eat and go, despite me booking a la carte and not the 24/7 'deal'. Maybe they mistook me. So, overall, a good dinner, but nothing to wax lyrical about, and to be expected after 8 years. Why change?More

I went here tonight with some friends. I got the gnocchi pasta which was delicious, along with the sangria. Everything tasted great and was filling! The waitress was so nice and it was my first patio experience of the season. I’ve been in the area...many times but I had never gone here before. Very satisfied with my meal. :)More
