My first visit to Goodfellas was terrific. The tuna special was perfect as was the service by our waiter, Theo. The mission fig appetizer stuffed with mozzarella was terrific!!!! Great bar and wine selections topped off the night.

No one does this dish better than Goodfellas. Cooked just right, bathed in a light brown sauce with sauteed onions, mushrooms and roasted peppers. An ample portion served by an impressive wait staff.

Visited Goodfella's with friends from Spain and as always food was great, the waiters were engaging. We are never disappointed. Choices are numerous. Had requested a quiet table and ate upstairs near window.
