I tried really hard not to go into the food dance but I eventually did!!!!! The food was delicious! Authentic marinanara sauce! The veal parmagian and my husband's eggplant parmagian was so scrumptious. I wanted to leave with a brick oven pizza but I settled for more pasta for the road! I will definitely come again. Not to say the... More

I have dined in this restaurant and ordered food delivered. I thoroughly enjoy thin crust pizza. I order the Old World Style Pizza with fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce. When it is not overcooked, it is outstanding. Unfortunately, it is overcooked about a third of the time we have it delivered. I keep coming back for it, because it is... More

First time there. I ordered the large Pizza and my wife ordered the Salmon Salad. Pizza was very good. Cooked just right, with a tasty, light sauce and sliced mozzarella which was very good quality. My wife enjoyed the Salmon Salad. Service was ok. Waitress was a bit too formal and distant. However, Jake, the manager, came over to make... More

After a long day at work driving the streets of Staten Island the last thing I wanted to do was drive to dinner. I got onto Trip Advisor and found Goodfellas Cafe. The food is great worth the price and the wait. Next time I'm on Staten Island I will eat here again.

Staten Island has more than it's share of pizza places, and in fact more than one GoodFella's. I enjoy this small branch for its friendly staff and consistently good food. Unlike many other pizzerias, GoodFellas does not serve by the slice. Their Sally Pie, and Smoking are my favorite pizzas there, but they also have excellent pastas, and a robust... More

Very small restaurant. Packed on a Saturday night. Service was bad, really slow. My husband liked his clams, my penne and veggies was ok. We had to ask for bread and also had to ask a different waitress to help us. Probably would try a different place next time.

I had some meatballs and the Tuscany salad. The salad was good. The meatballs were mushy. Service was friendly and above average.

My daughter, a former Staten Island resident, took me to Goodfella's to celebrate Father's Day. I knew I was in for a treat when I saw the continuous loop video playing on a TV above the Take-Out Counter spotlighting Goodfella's. Then decorating the walls I saw numerous press releases depicting their numerous awards--2007, 2009 & 2012 “World’s Best Pizza” and... More
