I’m not one to usually write reviews but I felt the need to for this restaurant. Upon arrival for our reservation there was plenty of seating downstairs where the ambience and overall setting was very nice and very traditional Italian. We were told that our table was upstairs and that we will be sitting upstairs. When we got upstairs it was very outdated and not nearly as nice as downstairs. The downstairs area had nice music playing and a live singer which could not be heard upstairs. The service was subpar to say the least however I blame that on the fact there was only one server to handle seven tables and also take care of the bar. This was for Valentine’s Day and there was a set menu $75 per person which came with four courses. The food was good But I believe overpriced given the environment and service that we received. I would be willing to try this restaurant again on a regular night and sit downstairs.

The best veal from any restaurant. All the specials are fresh and delicious.
Can’t go wrong with anything off the menu. Authentic Italian close to home.

Great welcoming atmosphere as soon as entering the restaurant. There was a DJ playing oldies and everyone seemed very happy. Sammy always greets everyone with a smile and walks you to a comfortable table. We ordered cocktails which were perfect, a delicious shrimp cocktail and a generous calamari appetizer. I tried and loved the branzino special prepared in a delicate wine sauce, and my husband thoroughly enjoyed a pasta dish with mushrooms, peas, shrimp, and a very flavorful red sauce. (Capellini Tuto). An after-dinner drink and a shared carrot cake completed this lovely dinner. We will always come back to Goodfella’s.

Service was attentive and mindful to not interrupt our dinner conversation. Food was excellent, both the regular menu items as well as the specials we tried. Sammy, the host ,was very cordial sharing interesting stories and his apparent love for the business.

Had my wife’s birthday dinner at Goodfella’s. They were amazing. Sammy took great care of us and we had a blast. DJ was playing free style music so we ended up staying there till 1:30am!! (80’s babies who love freestyle!)

We came here for Thanksgiving from the moment I called to confirm our reservation I felt welcomed the person on the phone was friendly and polite. We got there a little early and they greeted us and accommodated us right away. The place is beautiful and clean. The bathroom spotless. The staff above and beyond friendly. The food was amazing, fresh and tasty. I was worried to spend a holiday at a restaurant but we definitely felt at home. We will be coming back.

This was the second time in two weeks that we have dined at Goodfellas. The first time was so good that we had to come back again, and this time bring friends with us. We live in Westchester County, NY, so this is not a local eatery for us. The food from start to finish was the best Italian food I can remember having. It was so good that I felt compelled to sit down with the manager and let him know that he and his staff were doing all the right things. This restaurant is about a 40 minute drive for us, but when we want great Italian food, Goodfellas will be the place!

The food is always great but the service was a little slow. Took long to get each course and too long to get our check. I will of course come back but wish the service was a bit quicker.
