“Best in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013 via mobile

Great newcomer on the shanghai scene, cozy and easy going but with great class. Food is very good traditional Italian style cooking. Pizza...maybe the best in town but the real driving force of this place is the patron Marco Bettio, a force of nature that turn any night into a party!!

“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013 via mobile

The food was excellent and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. A welcome change of pace in the bustling city of Shanghai. I had the chicken wrapped in prosciutto and my husband had a pizza. Simple food beautifully prepared. Don't miss this gem when in Shanghai--the location is a short stroll from the Bund. Marco will welcome you with open arms.

“Goodfellas - great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

We spotted Goodfellas whilst strolling along the Bund and decided to give it a go.
They quickly pulled a few tables together and were able to accommodate our group without any hesitation. The atmosphere was great. Food was wonderful, a large selection on the menu all at very reasonable prices. Service was very good and location a winner.

“Goodfellas a real gem in Shanghai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We were a group of six Aussies out for an evening meal in Shanghai and just came across this absolute gem of an Italian Restaurant. Every aspect of the place was a perfect fit. We all were really impressed by the food and the service but it really didn't stop there. We found that the atmosphere was something special also with the photos on the wall and the background music all adding to the overall experience. We liked it so much we went again on our last night in Shanghai. I probably expected pay a lot more to be eating so close to the Bund but the price was certainly good value. It was a pleasure to meet the owner Marco who certainly made us feel welcome.

“Warm & Stylish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

Step into Good Fellas and feel that blend of warmth and Stylish charm that is oh! so Italian. Go off the menu a little and try some of the non-pasta and pizza fair and you will be glad you did so. Or pop in for a late night meal and drink and watch the world go home. You're in the company of GoodFellas!
