We stopped for lunch at Goodfellas Cafe & Winery enroute back to Sarasota after a trip to Myakka State Park. The cafe should not be judged by its exterior appearance--the food was very good. We had delicious, very fresh salads--a Caesar and a mixed. The mixed salad came undressed--you add balsamic vinegar and olive oils selecting from those they make... More

The service is very friendly and very good. Great salad with fresh ingredients, and flavor infused Olive oil. The thin crust Boston style pizza was excellent with crispy crust.

Very charming and cozy!! I can not complain about anything, the service was excellent. We started with garlic bread and marinara for an appetizer, the sauce was delicious and the bread was just as good. Had a pepperoni and mushroom pizza and can only say WOW!! Definitely will be back.

They let us try the ones we want try before ordering a glass. If you like fruity wines, this is the place to go!!! Also home made balsamic vinegar and... More

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

We thank you for you review. We know what we do isn't going to be over-the-top for everyone, but we still like to try. The Sauce might of been to far done as we did have to replace a steam-well around the time of your visit. For that we apologize. The Flavor undertone your tasting isn't something we added to...

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.
