The pizza craftsmen at the Original Goodfellas Pasta and Pizza kindle their menu of handmade pies in traditional brick ovens to ensure crispy crusts that hide steamy dough packed with moisture. A blanket of Goodfellas' signature marinara warms pillows of fried ravioli and the mozzarella en carrozza's shell of fried bread. Large pizzas ferry specialty toppings fresh broccoli rabe, prosciutto di parma, and imported provolone atop eight triangle bases that fit snugly in palms or billiards racks. Italian entrees sate cravings for three-dimensional bites with tender, lightly fried tidbits of eggplant parmigiana crowned with fresh mozzarella crumbles and silky sauce or Norwegian grilled salmon kissed with a sweet apricot glaze cuddling up to sautéed spinach and roasted potatoes. The bistro can also bedeck their cheery red-checkered tablecloths with gluten-free doppelgangers of their dishes upon request.
Remote clientele can call in catering orders to feed fêtes with an onslaught of stuffed shells ($34 half tray; $60 full tray) or honey-chicken-cutlet subs ($13.95/ft.) divided up like the Central Powers after the Treaty of Versailles.
Goodfella's Old World Brick Oven Pizza & Pasta
Scot Cosentino and the Goodfella's team share their love of pizza and pasta with guests at their family-friendly Italian bistro. Pizzas made in the old-world tradition—i.e., cooked in a real wood-fired brick oven as the chefs quote Dickens—include Cosentino’s original vodka pizza and other handmade pies. For these gourmet pizzas, Goodfella's has taken home big prize money from the International Pizza Expo, winning its Pizza Challenge on more than one occasion. The chefs also prepare heaping helpings of Italian pastas and entrees, such as prime-cut angus steak and linguini with baby clams.
