    Nice evening, good food and wine. Sammy was the host with the most genuine personality ever. Fun to dine and speak with him. He knows a thing or two about the restaurant business. We will be back.

    From start to finish everything was amazing! Food was excellent, as was the server (tall gentleman with dark hair) excellent! We have now made our way 2 times in the past 2 weeks. Both times were as amazing as the 1st! The manager is also amazing at checking in, and making the experience very welcoming and lovely.

    Husband and I had "date night" (on a Thursday!?) and went to Goodfellas for the first time. The owner greeted us and was very friendly; the wait staff was excellent and very accomodating (he even made my husband blue cheese stuffed olives for his martini!). The drinks were excellent and the food was exceptional. The calamari appetizer was light, crisp, the pappardelle alla cote and veal parmigiana were the best! They do have whole wheat pasta, just ask. All in all a very good restaurant and we will be back.

    Dinner was fantastic! From the hot antipasto appetizer to the veal saltimboca & a veal dish that’s just like veal Milanese but I don’t remember the name, were delicious! Kettle martinis & tequila sunrise perfectly prepared. Service was top notch and the place is super cozy which I just love. Can’t wait to go back!

    An absolutely incredible meal . There wasn’t one thing that wasn’t perfect . First of all , wait until you meet the manager - host .Sammy sat down with us , told us which were his favorite dishes , and made me feel like family . The prices are more then fair , Carlos was an amazing waiter and the restaurant just had a good vibe about it . Chicken dish and Shrimp scampi were out of this world . My girlfriend and her daughter haven’t stopped talking about Goodfellas . It probably didn’t hurt that Sammy told my girlfriend that she looked like Bo Derek . 😉
