A good selection of traditional Italian fare, some specialities also. Attentive service. Convivial clientele. I particularly like the Boston Special pizza and mussels marinara.

I want to say that Goodfellas Pizza is back to the FINE, Delicious and Crisp, Thin Style Pizza I crave. One day I might try one of their other offerings, but I just can not keep from ordering the pie!

Eh... had fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor... only reason I went. It was just bizarre. The wine was ok. Neopolitan pizza was watery and had huge chunks of tomato and was $11.50 for a small. Salad was good but just a salad. Super weird atmosphere....More

Everything is great, but the pizza is off the hook! This is about as close to Italy that you’re going to find in Florida. Thin, crispy, and fresh! This place in not fancy (so what), but the food is top notch.

The staff is very attentive. The food is fresh and great. The pizza is not the only thing that tastes good at this restaurant. Pasta dishes and Sandwiches are very good.
