My wife and I ordered: Meatballs Caesar salad Plain pizza We got three large meatballs. On the plus side: They were tender. However, on the minus side: the sauce tasted overcooked. Plus the sauce had an undertone taste I couldn't identify: was it wine? Oregano? Some beef flavor? Overcooked? Some unidentified spice? I don't know. It just didn't seem pleasant.... More

Used TripAdvisor to find a place for lunch near by. This place popped up & we'd never been & thought we'd check it out. Cute little place. Since it was right at opening, the service was perfect, as we were the only ones there, lol. The server was very nice & helpful. Food was good, nothing that I'd travel to... More

The pizza was thin-crust--very crispy and all fresh ingredients. Some of the best pizza ever. My hub got one with pepperoni, sausage, and mushroom and I have to say I liked it better than mine (Californian with artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes). The salad was outstanding with your choice of flavored oils and vinegars. We also took home spaghetti and meatballs... More

Had my birthday lunch here. So good. Club panini with chips. Great house salad, and my husband had a margarita pizza. Best he has ever had. Will definitely be going back.

Some of the best Italian food I've ever had. My girlfriend got the chicken parm entree and I had the sausage parm entree. As the cook told us a "hearty" amount of food. It was all very good from the protein, to the garlic bread, to the fresh pasta. Truly authentic Italian.

If heaven were to serve pizza, I'm sure it would be just like the pie I had last night; I'm still swooning. Goodfellas has mastered perfection in the world of pizza. The crust is cracker thin & crisp; the sauce is balanced with the ideal blend of spices; the toppings are fresh and evenly distributed so every bite will be... More

Spent a weekend camping at nearby Myakka River State Park, found ourselves here for lunch. Good gluten-free pizza and really good traditional pizza, thing crust and beefy meat toppings and just very flavorful. Wife had a glass of the house merlot, which they make themselves; it was good not great (oddly, it was served chilled), and they had an extensive... More

We have lived in Sarasota for 20 years and have several restaurants in town that we enjoy, but Goodfellas has quickly become our "go to" choice for a great meal. Dave and his team are a great bunch of young people who have a natural gift of hospitality and just plain and simple make delicious food! The atmosphere is like... More

I'm a native New Yorker and know good pizza. You get it here. Wait staff was a bit overwhelmed when we came, but did their very best so although a little slow, great service. Just couldn't get with the wines. I tried a couple and couldn't drink even the samples. Great coffee though!

After reading the reviews we gave Goodfellas a try. So glad we did. Bruschetta was fabulous. We also really enjoyed their red sauce. It was delicious. They enjoy using garlic so be forewarned. Restaurant is casual so don't plan on dressing up just enjoy great dinner.
