Much better than you would think considering the name of the restaurant. Love the meatball salad...unique option for lunch. Traditional menu for dinner with some unique twists. Full bar and very helpful, colorful staff. Has a local neighborhood feel with modest prices.

Goodfellas offers the same level of service at lunch time. The meals were huge and arrive quickly. The dinner menu was also available if you choose to indulge. Movies are playing on the TV's but they are muted. Metered parking on the street.

Yes, they try but both food and service leave to be desired. Several screens show, appropriately enough, the movie non-stop. Quite ugly movie, as far as I am concerned. But back to the restaurant: great service does not consist in shaking hands with your customers, in fact it is to be avoid especially since we are still not out of... More

We ate upstairs and had a wonderful relaxed dinner. The service was impeccable. Excellent cioppino and the filet cognac was amazing. Dessert was lovely.

Where to begin--the Eggplant tower was amazing with a delicious basaltic sauce--grand portion !

Now on to the finer points about this place. The food.... that was just OK, nothing to rave about. I had their parpedelli with meatballs and what they... More

Found this place by accident and so happy I did. The staff, menu, food, ambiance was awesome! I asked if they would make something for me from the dinner menu even though it was lunch and they were totally accommodating...Cant wait to go back....
