OCEAN BREEZE — The Staten Island pizzeria that embroiled Mayor Bill de Blasio in the "Pizzagate" scandal has been shut down by the Department of Health.
Goodfella's Pizzeria, at 1718 Hylan Blvd., was closed by the Health Department after racking up 53 violation points during a Wednesday inspection, records show.
The eatery got three critical violations for having evidence of mice, not having a vermin-proof space and keeping food at the wrong temperature, according to the Health Department.
The owners of the pizzeria could not be reached for comment.
The space made headlines in January when it hosted a visit from de Blasio, who whipped out a fork and knife to chow down on a slice.
The new mayor was criticized on the Internet, and was schooled by "The Daily Show" host John Stewart on the proper pizza-eating technique.
Co-owner of Goodfella's, Marc Cosentino, bagged and tagged the fork as evidence and auctioned it off for charity. The fork sold for $2,500 to an unknown bidder and the money was donated to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation for Hurricane Sandy relief.
"It's a good cause and it's a nice piece of New York history to have," Cosentino told DNAinfo New York at the time.
