- Goodfellas = Good foodJerseyJohnDined on 7/26/2014My wife and I had a very enjoyable meal. The service was attentive, the food delicious, and the beverages were very good. Before dinner, my wife had a French martini which she thoroughly enjoyed. Equally good was the Flounder Francese that I had and the Lobster Ravioli my spouse selected. We will definitely return both for beverages at the bar and dinner in the restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- BillDined on 6/13/2014The entire dining experience was top notch. And the valet was very helpful.Special Features:
- Saturday date nghtOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 5/24/2014Went for a dinner for two with my spouse. The food was very good. Her pasta vodka sauce was nice, but the pasta itself as overcooked. Ambience was noisy due to DJ playing music a little too loud for our tastes.Special Features:

- Goodfellas ChangedFox65Dined on 3/20/2014Had been there months ago, much better dining experience in every way. Possibly the chef and wait staff has changed??? Carpaccio was frozen, and wait staff dumped chocolate sauce over Zeppoles to take home - who does that??? Sauce should have been put in small separate container. My friends and I drove from Mahwah, sorry to say, we will not be returning.
- Sam is back!AnnMVIPDined on 3/14/2014The host, Sam, is back! The restaurant has good food, atmosphere and service, but it lost something when it lost Sam. I'll be coming around more often.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- sausage lasagnadeanDined on 2/15/2014if you put sausage in lasagna its called sausage lasagna, not Meat Lasagna. the waitress was a diner waitress. she was very nice, sweet, but had little experience in the service business. for the money Goodfellas charges, i expected, and have had, much better for less. your valet asked me what kind of car i drove in....there was only 1 other couple in the restaurant....the rest of the cars were employees...do employees valet park to? i wouldnt be standing here in the snow if i parked it myself. really poor experience.
- I went for Valentines Day.ANGELINODined on 2/14/2014I went for Valentines Day. It was a very nice atmosphere. Food was excellent. Love the music (not too loud just right)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointedLuisDined on 2/14/2014Waiter was clueless, the valentines say menu was condensed and not posted anywhere on their website. Poor choices on the menu. Great decor... Nice lighting.. Romantic setting... But the service was not good, food was bland and boring... Manager was very nice but at that point myself and the two tables next to me had enough.Special Features:
- Surprisingly goodOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 2/8/2014We ended up here by chance. Didn't know what to expect. Enjoyed our meal very much!Special Features:
- Pleasant experienceGinoVIPDined on 2/1/2014My wife and I had dinner here this past weekend. Table placements are a bit crowded but apart from that everything was great. I had the veal and my wife had the "zuppa di pesce", both very good and ample portions. Service was friendly and efficient and we both enjoyed the evening. The place isn't located in the best area but I would recommend it because the food was worth itSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great menu. Food was wonderful.OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 1/17/2014Great menu. Food was wonderful. Service was so so. Staff was unattentive and slow. They had to be waved down for water and basic service. At these prices the service needs to be better.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Embarrassing and dreadfulFluffygesDined on 12/31/2013We were given menus and we're told they were out of several appetizers and entrees listed on the very limited menu. That was pretty bad. Even worse, there were options on the menu that required an extra $15 or $10 for that entree above the $85 pp cost. We waited quite awhile for apps and when they came, only 3 out of the 6 of us were We waited 10 more minutes for the other diners to get their apps. Finally, my husband grabbed the waiter and asked where the food was, and he replies that they were now out of another soup and shrimp cocktail, and the veal entree ad well! We had not had any manager or anyone even bothering to care. Finally, we were so angry, we got up and left. No one bothered to stop us. It was really a horrible experience.
- Great Place, Great FoodmommieshopsDined on 12/21/2013I can't wait to go back. Since my first visit, I've been back 2 more times. My new favorite restaurant. Wait staff very attentive, food delicious. I don't think you could have a bad meal here. My favorite, carbonara, just delicious. Appy's what we've tried, all delicious. I'm afraid I won't try anything else I loved the carbonara so much. All my friends equally enjoyed their food...linguini in white clam sauce, a chicken dish and an eggplant dish. Shared zeppolli's for dessert, so great. Bar area nice to relax, the 3 times I've been more of a middle to older crowd. Also, medium size group celebrating birthday and a Christmas gathering, everyones dishes looked great. Portions are large, I think the value is here. You won't regret.Special Features:
- Excellent Food!!!OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 12/21/2013The four of us go out to dinner just about every Saturday.Goodfellas is only blocks away and just never went there. We decided to go the Saturday before Christmas. I was slightly disappointed when the waitress told me the appetizer I chose was not ready yet. ( it was 7:30 pm) and they just didn't have the stuffed mushroom appetizer my husband ordered. One of our party had the calamari and everyone at the table loved it. For dinner I had a homemade pasta dish that was incredible, my husband said his veal saltiboca was the best ever. Well, everything was excellent. On the downside it is expensive. For us, it will be for special occasions. We will absolutely go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very Goodfellas!OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 11/30/2013First time dining here. Nice variety of choices. Food was very flavorful and ample portions. Service was attentive without being in-your-face. Nice cozy atmosphere, although suprisingly a little noisy. Would surely go back.Special Features:
- Excellent FoodRick85Dined on 11/26/2013Food Was very good, place is nice and romantic, service seemed attentive to other tables but our waiter forgot about us after he brought out our entrees, other than that everything was awesome.
