Great little place with classic oldie posters, huge coffee machine, smart efficient waitress... oh, and amazing pizza! Thin crust perfectly done. We split a Margarita pizza with big fresh chunks of tomato and all the right stuff. Extensive wine collection - including house blends & happy-hour specials (beer too). Salads are great with a do-it-yourself dressings table with a wide... More

My husband and I stopped in at Goodfellas at an odd time of day after running errands. We were warmly greeted by Savannah, the server who was obviously on prep duty for dinner service. But throughout our 90 minutes at Goodfellas, Savannah was knowledgeable and attentive. She made several good recommendations and offered to provide samples of any wine, olive... More

A friend suggested this place and so I decided to try it for lunch. My friend and I split a small house salad, California Dream Pizza & Gelato. We each had a glass of homemade wine all for under $32 dollars. When you get a salad you get to make your own dressing, all oil & vinegar based but there... More

This is not a fancy place, but the Pizza, Salad & Beer was Good. The server was nice, attentive & friendly. We'd go back again, but beware, skip the Gelato, it was old & rubbery...

Needed lunch before golf, but didn't want a "chain " arrived just ahead of a lunch crowd, Dave the owner/ chef stopped by and explained there home made, local ingredients. I had ravioli with pesto sauce, and my wife had primivera pizza, both very good with fresh ingredients.

The food was great and the service was ok. The food tasted fresh and with great flavor. I had the cheese sticks (though they are more like a little cakes). Wish they had cooked longer for a more crispy outside. Sadly they were placed on a lettuce leaf and the moisture made the bottom of the breading soggy, and the... More

Thank you for your kind review. We have made changes to our "cheese stix" since reading your review. We gave it an upgrade with a little more breading for more crunch. This sauce being cold was not up to our standards, and for that the Chefs apologize. Very glad you enjoyed our pizza though! And yes we do make it... More

This is our second visit to Goodfellas. The owner is the nicest person! He is willing to help with all explainations of the wine. He makes great suggestions on tastings based on what you ask. Wine is good as are the prices. Will visit him on our next trip.

Never a let down. Awesome wood fired pizza- the Boston is my favorite. This is their award winning pizza & understandably so. Pepperoni, sausage , mushroom & extra cheese. We also tried The Wiseguy pizza which has capicola, genoa salami & prosciutto. These are big pizzas so you will have plenty to take home for your family at home. Our... More

We were recommended to try Goodfellas because they have thin-crust pizza. So glad we decided to try it out. Since most of the places in this area serve thick, doughy pizza, it was such a nice, refreshing change to eat Goodfellas pizza. We also split a salad that was huge, good thing we each didn't order one. They make their... More
