Some of the best Italian food I've ever had. My girlfriend got the chicken parm entree and I had the sausage parm entree. As the cook told us a "hearty" amount of food. It was all very good from the protein, to the garlic bread, to the fresh pasta. Truly authentic Italian.

If heaven were to serve pizza, I'm sure it would be just like the pie I had last night; I'm still swooning. Goodfellas has mastered perfection in the world of pizza. The crust is cracker thin & crisp; the sauce is balanced with the ideal blend of spices; the toppings are fresh and evenly distributed so every bite will be... More

Spent a weekend camping at nearby Myakka River State Park, found ourselves here for lunch. Good gluten-free pizza and really good traditional pizza, thing crust and beefy meat toppings and just very flavorful. Wife had a glass of the house merlot, which they make themselves; it was good not great (oddly, it was served chilled), and they had an extensive... More

We have lived in Sarasota for 20 years and have several restaurants in town that we enjoy, but Goodfellas has quickly become our "go to" choice for a great meal. Dave and his team are a great bunch of young people who have a natural gift of hospitality and just plain and simple make delicious food! The atmosphere is like... More

I'm a native New Yorker and know good pizza. You get it here. Wait staff was a bit overwhelmed when we came, but did their very best so although a little slow, great service. Just couldn't get with the wines. I tried a couple and couldn't drink even the samples. Great coffee though!

After reading the reviews we gave Goodfellas a try. So glad we did. Bruschetta was fabulous. We also really enjoyed their red sauce. It was delicious. They enjoy using garlic so be forewarned. Restaurant is casual so don't plan on dressing up just enjoy great dinner.

Wonderful pizzas! The wines are made locally and are very good. If you are looking for "fine wine" this is not the place for you. However, if like me, you appreciate local, hand made, "craft" wine, you will love this place!

What a hidden gem. All in one pizza, Italian restaurant, winery, deli, coffee shop and oil & vinegar shop. With that many things going on wouldn't expect any one to be that good, but all we tried were! Great thin style large slice pizza, great toppings, but even better with just cheese. Salad was fresh and there was an oil... More

My wife and I went for their Pizza. The place is a Conundrum. The owner tries to pack to much in a small place. He has a Pizza restaurant, a delli, he sells Olive Oils and Vinegars and makes and sells his own wines. It gives you more of an atmosphere of a roadside tourist stop. Food was good if... More

We have been eating at Goodfellas for 2+ years and we have never had bad food. How could it be bad with everything being homemade. Great pasta, pizza, appetizers, salad and of course desserts. The staff is always so friendly and helpful. We have recommended Goodfellas to many.
