One of the best meals I have ever had. Food was delicious and we were allowed to enjoy our meal without being rushed.
A Classic Italian Restaurant.
The way great Italian Restaurants used to be .
Fantastic food, great atmosphere,superior service and the feeling that they are really happy you came to visit.
Must make a reservation.
This restaurant is a recent find for us. From the moment you walk in, Sam the manager makes you feel welcome and that he’s known you for years. The ambiance is lovely, both visually and from background music. The generous portions of well prepared and delicious food make you return weekly. Which is exactly what we’ve been doing.
We dine here often. Good food and service every time.
Amazing as always!
Always a great dining experience! Food, service, pleasant atmosphere.

Goodfellas is the place to go any time.
We visit as often as possible, never been disappointed.
Very pleasant, and friendly! We have been there before and always enjoy it! The food is very good!
Great food and service.
I hosted a party for 12 at the restaurant. The owner was kind enough to order in a few special bottles of wine. The service was fantastic as well as the food. Will be looking forward to eating there again.
This was the best Italian food I’ve had in such a long time!!! The owner was so amazing and accommodating to this party of 1. I ate everything I could fit and the Avocado shrimp salad is worth it. I have been trying to find a comparison ever since I tasted it. Chicken Parm for dinner was the perfect portion and tasted AMAZING.
Joann is exceptional
Excellent , as always
Great Job all around. Great food, great drinks, great service. All the servers, and bus people were attentive, professional and courteous. Sammy, the Maitre d, was terrific and got us to relax and laugh. A very enjoyable evening, hands down! Thank you.
Mother’s Day - this place is outstanding. Great, great food and outstanding service. I’ve never had a bad experience there.
We had a wonderful time. We will be back soon!
Even a pandemic can’t diminish the dining excellence and enjoyment of dining in one of north Jersey’s Italian gems!
Outstanding!! Best in NJ!
Great food and service.
We had the Penne Vodka, Chicken Marsala and the Rack of Lamb, all were delicious. I have never been served such a large number of lamb chops. For dessert we had the tiramisu which was also great. Service was top notch, very attentive.
Excellent food and great people!
Excellent food and service as always
Overall it was a good experience. Food was good. Ambiance was ok. A little old but still had a good time.
My husband and I had Valentines Day dinner. Everything was awesome.
Excellent food and service. Sammy is a wonderful host. This restaurant never disappoints!
Veal Conte is amazing along with so many of their other dishes. Good bar service. Sammy is the absolute best Host.
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 tables are too close together for comfort, the food takes forever on more than one occassion and its ok
not sure why this place is highly rated
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.
As always the food and the service is excellent
Yes the food was delicious. The service was excellent. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
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.
Just amazing service
Great ambiance and excellent food
Great food and generous portions.
