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!

We booked Goodfellas as a last resort unexpectedly being in the area. We were happily surprised by the service and quality of the food. My wife and I are vegans. The restaurant easily prepared a pasta primavera using their rigatoni marinara as a base. The hot peppers appetizer were also a big hit. We’ll be back.

Finally got here after talking about it for many years, after seeing the great local TV Ad ("How's the food?" "Are you kidding? Better than ever!"). Really excellent American-Italian food. Best meatballs I have had in NJ and Spaghetti Carbonara was perfect. They could offer more in the way of desserts but the main course portions are so generous maybe they don't get much demand...but wish they'd had Tiramisu ("sorry, not today").

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!

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!

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.
