You guys ever see the movie “Goodfellas”? Remember this Pesci-Liotta scene?
Henry Hill: You’re a pistol, you’re really funny. You’re really funny.
Tommy DeVito: What do you mean I’m funny?
Henry Hill: It’s funny, you know. It’s a good story, it’s funny, you’re a funny guy.
Tommy DeVito: What do you mean, you mean the way I talk? What?
Henry Hill: It’s just, you know. You’re just funny, it’s… funny, the way you tell the story and everything.
Tommy DeVito: [it becomes quiet] Funny how? What’s funny about it?
Anthony Stabile: Tommy no, You got it all wrong.
Tommy DeVito: Oh, oh, Anthony. He’s a big boy, he knows what he said. What did ya say? Funny how?
Henry Hill: Jus…
Tommy DeVito: What?
Henry Hill: Just… ya know… you’re funny.
Tommy DeVito: You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it’s me, I’m a little fucked up maybe, but I’m funny how, I mean funny like I’m a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I’m here to fuckin’ amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?
Henry Hill: Just… you know, how you tell the story, what?
Tommy DeVito: No, no, I don’t know, you said it. How do I know? You said I’m funny. How the fuck am I funny, what the fuck is so funny about me? Tell me, tell me what’s funny!
Henry Hill: [long pause] Get the fuck out of here, Tommy!
Tommy DeVito: [everyone laughs] Ya motherfucker! I almost had him, I almost had him. Ya stuttering prick ya. Frankie, was he shaking? I wonder about you sometimes, Henry. You may fold under questioning.
Over the past 5 years or so Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have eaten at Paolo’s 3’s Company Italian Restaurant & Lounge something like 8-times (with last night being the most recent) and each and every time, I/we could’ve sworn that Henry Hill, Tommy DeVito and their buddies would be walking in at any minute! Great food, not exactly- Great service, not exactly, but we really enjoy this joint! Not sure as to the exact allure…but the 1950’s- 1960’s Italian gangster/Rat Pack décor-vibe-wait service, nightly “live oldies” music (Rat Pack, Doo Wop, Elvis, Darin), celebrity sightings like Jake “The Raging Bull LaMotta (I know, you thought he was dead!), separate dance floor, outdoor dining/smoking patio, separate bar area, decent enough food (think- your average “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joint with surprisingly dynamite garlic bread and you’ll be on the right page) and service – make this joint a “one of a kind.”
Like I said 2 seconds ago, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats really enjoy Paolo’s 3’s Company. Just so we are straight with each other, if you’re into EDM (Electric Dance Music) Jeff Eats is kinda-thinking (actually I know) that this joint ain’t gonna work for you! Now on the other-hand, if you’re looking for a Marty McFly type “outing”- I am telling you, you will really enjoy Paolo’s 3’s Company Italian Restaurant & Lounge!
Paolo’s 3’s Company is open Sunday-Thursday 4pm-10pm, Friday-Saturday 4pm-11pm.
