My wife and two daughters took me here for Father's Day ;) the food was outstanding ! I'm Italian and it reminded me of when my Nonnie used to cook on Sunday. Thanks Goodfellas, we just found our new go to restaurant:)

No one does this dish better than Goodfellas. Cooked just right, bathed in a light brown sauce with sauteed onions, mushrooms and roasted peppers. An ample portion served by an impressive wait staff.

Visited Goodfella's with friends from Spain and as always food was great, the waiters were engaging. We are never disappointed. Choices are numerous. Had requested a quiet table and ate upstairs near window.

My wife and myself visited on Friday. I was initially concerned with the name, I assumed it might be a little trendy. I was completely wrong, the restaurant is comfortable, low key and the tables are not on top of each other. Our waiter, Brian,...More

Much better than you would think considering the name of the restaurant. Love the meatball salad...unique option for lunch. Traditional menu for dinner with some unique twists. Full bar and very helpful, colorful staff. Has a local neighborhood feel with modest prices.

Goodfellas offers the same level of service at lunch time. The meals were huge and arrive quickly. The dinner menu was also available if you choose to indulge. Movies are playing on the TV's but they are muted. Metered parking on the street.

Yes, they try but both food and service leave to be desired. Several screens show, appropriately enough, the movie non-stop. Quite ugly movie, as far as I am concerned. But back to the restaurant: great service does not consist in shaking hands with your customers,...More
