Great attantive staff. Delicious food and beautiful atmosphere o bring your family or a date.
Sam the manager is the best!
Food and wine very good.
Music was soft in the background and not overpowering.
Sam the Maitre D is the best reason to go there! Carlos the server is the very finest. The place is warm, cozy, great food, great service. They always acccomodate my gluten free needs with great care.
I surely hope the owners recognize that without Sam and Carlos the place would absolutely not be as special. Give them the credit and money they deserve please!!!!! Love this place!
Everything about Goodfellas is perfect. The food is excellent, the decor is upscale and the service is attentive. Sammy, the manager, is warm, friendly, and personable. I come here several times a year and it’s consistently great. I highly recommend Goodfellas.
Goodfellas is a great place to enjoy a good food with friends. A good selection of Italian specialties and dishes. Comfortable seating, good food, well stocked bar and good service makes for a superior recipe for a restaurant.
Food was amazing, great wine and service!
Great food but service was not good!
To celebrate my birthday, my husband and two friends asked me to choose a place for dinner. I hadn’t been to Goodfella’s in years, and I read all the good reviews on Open Table. Since it is close to home and familiar, I wanted to visit again. We were so pleased! The service was very warm and professional. The food was very traditional Italian, which was just what I wanted. The cocktails were made perfectly. We enjoyed shrimp stuffed mushrooms, a soup of the day and oysters for appetizers. Delicious! Penne with vodka sauce with delicately seasoned chicken was so good. My husband tried chicken scapariello, and he ate every bite. The other two entrees were chicken Parmesan and linguini with clam sauce. Basic Italian fare made beautifully and served generously. We enjoyed carrot cake and cannoli with perfectly brewed coffee for dessert. We were greeted by the owner as we finished our meals, and he asked us to please come back again. We certainly will. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Goodfellas was amazing! The food is definitely authentic Italian at its finest. I will definitely be going back!
Great food, great service will definitely come back.
Always excellent food - generous portions - great place for getting together with friends for a wonderful dinner. Sammy, the manager, friendly and accommodating.
Good, basic "red sauce" Italian spot. We started with Mozzarella en Carozza with anchovy sauce, which we've had in many places. This was very disappointing. It seemed like they used white bread for the base of the dish, and the anchovy sauce was kind of vinegary.
For entrees, my husband had the Veal Saltimbocca (his "test" meal at every new Italian restaurant). The veal was very tender, but drowning in melted mozzarella. I had the restaurant's version of Veal Milanese. This veal was not as tender but the arugula & cubed mozzarella topping was good. The portions here are very big.
The best thing I can say about this restaurant is the service. Both the host and our waiter were terrific. Very attentive, friendly, professional.
Excellent food. Always comsistent!
Seafood Fra Diavolo is superb.
INCREDIBLE service!! Combined with top notch food and friendly, humorous service, makes this a tough place to beat for dinner, whether for business or pleasure!!
Next time I am in town, it will be where I have dinner!
Great food and service, Sammy the host is the best
First time at restaurant. I had read some good reviews on open table and figured it was worth a shot In Bergen county NJ it's difficult to find a good Italian place that offers both creative and comfort food. Took my wife there last minute on Saturday night. We both really enjoyed the food and the experience. Nice portions, good service, and tasty food with a BAR!! We were not rushed and made to feel welcome even as we could tell there were many regulars dining. We will definitely be going back to goodfellas and taking some friends it was very good all around
Excellent dining experience! Food was great!!
Two thumbs up!!
Love this place very nice food and enjoyable environment
I had forgotten how terrific this little loud local gem is. Glad we gave it another go around! Host is gracious and friendly and the staff makes you feel like an old friend. And for a fussy Italian to like a restaurant's "red sauce" that says a lot!!!
I enjoyed my experience. I have been to Goodfellas many times. It never disappoints! The atmosphere, the service, and of course the food, second to none..The lobster ravioli is unbelievable..
Best italian restaurant in northern NJ...I come here often, and will continue to do so.
I have eaten here many times. My experience has always been wonderful. The food is out of this world, and the waitstaff is attentive and most helpful..
All I wanted was some meatballs...we were told it would take too long to make...they didn't have any made. Huh??? Service was average to unresponsive. Machiatto was worst ever. Had to ask for grated cheese at Italian restaurant...none offered. Wanted to LOVE it...it was ok.
Phenomenal Italian food and excellent service. Husband and I moved from New Jersey year ago and were back to visit and wanted to try an Italian restaurant we'd never been to on this visit. We were delighted.
Excellent old fashioned Italian food in a wonderful setting!
The food is always wonderful! Sammy is a gem! Never disappointing!
Best restaurant and hidden gem. Whenever I am in town, I am going to Goodfellas
We passed by Goodfellas for years and never stopped in. Stopping in was the best find in a long time. If you're in the neighborhood you should definitely check it out.
We love this place!.....Sammy the Maitre D' is the greatest and Leah at the bar keeps us laughing!!
Great option in an area with a lot of local Italian food. Wonderful ambiance. Impeccable service.
Food is very good services amazing
Restaurant is a bit pricey. Great for a special occasion. The food came out hot and everything was fresh. The service was excellent. Delicious bread!
The food was fantastic! Absolutely delicious. The seating is a little tight, but we will be back again!
Excellent food, spectacular drinks and great service. The only thing I could say derogatory was that it was really busy. We arrived for our reservation early and we're seated 20 mins past our reservation time. All in all though it was a great night out :)
Dr. Conte runs a fantastic establishment. Not a trace of The Bamboo Lounge from his most famous acting role.
I can trust the staff of Goodfellas to deliver a quality experience for me and my clients every time.
The food was amazing, the ambiance of the place was outstanding, dim lighting, a on site DJ and very friendly staff. The price was a little high but you get what you pay for both in portion size and quality. My girlfriend had a malibu bay breeze and stated "It was the best I've ever had." I would recommend this place to anyone especially for special occasions, we went for Valentines Day. Lastly make sure to try the bread and dipping sauce, even if you don't like dipping sauce, give it a try, its worth it.
Italian, done right! I was there with my girlfriend for Valentine's Day. Though I used to live in town, I hadn't been back to Goodfellas for some years. Seems I was truly missing some wonderful Italian food.
We shared an assortment of hot appetizers (eggplant rolantini, clams oreganato, shrimp and the mozzarella Napoleon). Our entrees were cooked to perfection and were as tasty as I remembered. Polo Caruso with Broccoli Rabe and traditional Veal Parmigiana. This was followed by a holiday-inspired heart-shaped ice cream treat.
The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect from an authentic Italian restaurant, lights dimmed, Sinatra playing in the background and a charming decor.
The waitstaff were courteous and professional as well as very attentive. We never felt rushed and we really, believed they were glad to have us.
Excellent experience, from the valet to the server everyone was beyond courteous and the food was excellent. They made my valentines experience one to remember. The almond crusted goat cheese was incredible!
Had dinner with friends to celebrate Christmas--I've been here several times, once again not disappointed. Everyone was very happy with what they ordered. I really need to try something new, but I just love the pasta carbonara, best anywhere! Place was crowded, and they were out of a few items, which was a bit of a disappointment but overall didn't ruin the evening. Staff attentive, and we were seated immediately--we had reservations. Highly recommend.
For several years I have meaning to try Goodfellas, but from my home in northern Bergen County I always found an excuse not to go there. It was fantastic in every way, and I will definitely be back. The seafood pasta was specular, as was my wife's ravioli. Service was attentive and professional. No hassle valet parking made it easy as well. Highly recommend for any occasion and very much truly Italian.
