What is the most realistic representation of The Mafia? Goodfellas or The Godfather?

The Godfather crew enjoyed opera, good wine and good living, while the Goodfellas / Casino people seem to be more crass. What is the real deal? Did an upper crust / lower class divisions within the mafia?

Goodfellas is certainly more realistic, based on reports of an associate real Mob. The Godfather is too wild romantic fictional portrait of the life of the mafia, even for the period from the late '40s as a whole. There was never any honor or chivalry real in the mafia. Nobody refers to mob bosses like "Godfather" Puzo before. And as this happens it is very rare that a Mafia boss to be succeeded by his son.
