We had a great meal with wonderful service at this restaurant. They have an extensive wine list. Staff were very attentive and helpful with menu selections and possible wine pairing, but not pushy. Food was outstanding,

A restrauteur friend recommended Ristorante Guido, so I made reservations. Later, I read some of the negative the reviews here and began having second thoughts. We went anyway and happy to report we had an excellent dinner all the way through. The stewed Boar (reminded me of pot roast) and pork steak (chop) were both top notch. The chocolate soufflé...

In the bright side the food was quite good but in a restaurant of that category you should also feel special no matter if you ask for the more expensive wine o for a bottle of water and that was not the case here. The waitress did not made us feel either special or welcome and have just eyes for... More

I read others' reviews and I beg to differ. Not only was Sunday nite dinner excellent, we plan to go there again. The salads were so fresh, the eggplant so tasty, and my first try at an Italian steak was rewarded. Desserts were equally tasty. The wait staff was attentive but not over bearing. Perhaps tonite a repeat visit!

I stopped by Ristorante Guido for dinner a few nights ago. It was fine and I would be fine going back there in a pinch. But I would probably look for another place first. I didn't have a reservation but the staff were happy to seat me. However, I looked at th menu for no longer than five minutes, and... More

We sat on the street on this seemingly charming and cozy restaurant. The inside seems nice. Pros: -Good location, very close to the center and amphitheatre; -Fair price for what the menu states; -Staff is welcoming and is able to efficiently serve a good amount of tables. Cons: -Our food was especially dry and bland, we ordered the tuna. Steer... More

We shuffled in after being rejected by a tour guide for not having booked earlier. There is nothing worse than rejection so rather than seeking solace at the local Cathedrals we decided that food was our best option! Ristorante Guido is well positioned and has a wonderful atmosphere with vintage photos of celebrities both past and present and it's a... More

We stopped here for lunch on a hot day. The menu hid the 5 Euro cover charge that did not include the table water. So it was a 7.50 charge before we had ordered. We both ordered the speciality pasta dish with beef ragu. It was over-salted and the pasta too hard (not at all al dente) When we paid... More

Good service, great location, good wine. Food was disappointing. Scallop starter was just about OK if a little tasteless my ossobuco was not good and my wife had a very salty fried cod dish. It is obviously a very popular place perhaps we were unlucky.
