I am a born and raised New York Gal. I have been living here in Southern Delaware for almost 12 years now, and before that I was a "tourist" who brought my kids to the beach for a week every summer. My one complaint about this place was that pizza and italian food did not exist. There was what they "called" pizza but come on--tube sprayed sauce onto frozen crust and that stuff they call cheese--NOT!
I happened to stumble upon Goodfellas one day and have been a loyal customer ever since. The resturant in Milton over looks a lovely pond and has outdoor tables with umbrellas that sit on a wonderful peaceful deck. It is off the beat so you can park easily in their lot and enjoy the scenery. So, this is not enough? Inside, you find a combination family style/bar resturant. The clients range form tourists, locals, and bar people. From the far wall, a huge portrait of a young Italian woman watches over all that happens there (It just so happens to be, Ralph, the owner's mother). What could be more authentic. I have been to every pizza joint from here to Wilmington..finally, I found outstanding--good every time--New York Style Pizza. The owner, Ralph and his best chef, Mike, will make it any way you want. Every time they make a pizza you can tell that the goal is to please their customers. Besides this, the salads--the best--you can't finish them they are so big--my favorite is the house salad, my husband likes the antipasta salad.
So, the pizza and salad have my vote, but, if you want pasta or lasagna--THE ABSOLUTE BEST. This is the only place where the pasta is cooked fresh and they actually know what aldente means. Now getting to the most amazing thing I have ever had--the calzone. Like nothing you have ever seen. Not the traditional half circle dough stuffed with wonderment--this one is in the shape of a huge horseshoe--its big enough for a family of 4--every time I order this, Mike makes it just the way I want it--"What ever you want" he says and he delivers. So maybe you have to wait a little longer sometimes but there is nowhere else anywhere close where you can go for italian food or pizza and get it just the way you want it and always good. Ralph and his wife, and Bobby, and Mike are always happy and eager to please their customers.
THANK YOU GOODFELLAS!! YOUR ARE MY NUMBER ONE!!
