Having grown up in a place that has great Italian food and now living in the NYC/NJ area, I'm pretty picky about it. I gave this place a try given it's top rating and I wasn't disappointed. It was surprisingly authentic. Their bread basket was impressive, with a fresh-made focaccia, fresh bruschetta, an Italian roll and chili oil for dipping. Service was impeccable, as were my soup (cream of asparagus) and my main (penne puttanesca). Super cute place! I would recommend.

I am about to go to this restaurant for the third time in 2 weeks. It has to be one of the best restaurants in Shanghai. If you want dinner at a super-fancy restaurant with millions spent on interior décor, mediocre service, and pseudo-authentic cuisine, this place is NOT for you. This place is not about face and is definitely not one that makes someone feels like they have billions to spend.

This place is about food, service, authenticity, and good reasons why a person should pay for a good dinner.

Pros:

- Food, food, food. Can I say more?
- Genuine Italian cuisine. If unsure, go check with the chef.
- Service. Gio, why can't we have more restaurant managers like you in Shanghai? Why do we have to put up with crappy service everywhere else?
- Excellent vibe
- For the duration of my visits, I felt like I was back in the states

Cons:

- Not so much a con but the place is not exactly on the bund, and I can imagine what it is like to visit this place on a rainy day. Minor inconvenience, I guess.

I stop by Goodfellas any time I go to Shanghai. I usually get the Pappardelle. The food is simply fantastic. Probably some of the better Italian food I've had (period), not just for China.

The service is also tops. The hosts are very attentive and welcoming.

If you plan on coming here with more than two people, get a reservation. I usually come here on my own without a reservation and always end up sitting on a stool. In any case, i've never been disappointed. Great find!
