While there are a handful of tables where you can eat in, this place is meant for freshly made Italian take-out, and it's great. All the food is made to order, and each time we've ordered, the food was well-prepared. A perfect cook on the pasta, great sauces and meats, fast service. The take-out here is better than in any...

I've eaten at Guichos on Estrella several times. I've found the food to range from good to very good. The pastas I've had were good, not great. The marinara is a missing something, it's a little bland. The spaghettini is plentiful and meatballs hearty. The sausage lasagna has plenty of sausage, mozzarella, and marinara. The meatball sandwich is really good.... More

There are 2 of these "to go" restaurants in San Clemente. Make sure you confirm which one you are calling when placing an order. Portions are good size and excellent sauces!

After hearing good things, we decided to give this joint a try. Not really disappointing, but nothing to be ecstatic about either. We did lunch and the bow tie pasta was OK, but a bit bland. The Italian sub sandwich was pretty good actually, with nice flavor and lightly toasted bun. I would give them another try for a dinner... More

Guicho's has the best tasting food for a great price. They have been catering all my parties for years now and everyone I refer to them also loves them! They have seafood and chicken dishes. Check out their online menu and you can have your order waiting when you get there.

I pulled off the freeway and figured I would try it based on reviews. I got the special risotto. It was risotto swimming in cheese. Not surprising for an Italian food carry out in a strip mall. Just not what I expected based on the reviews.

We stop by every time we drive thru san clemente and have never been disappointed. The food is boxed as advertised because it is primarily a to go restaurant. It's lovely to be able to sit there and eat if we have time or take the food and go. The ingredients are fresh and each meal is prepared when ordered.... More

Tucked in a strip shopping mall, Guichos Eatery 2 is set up more for to-go or casual lunch than fine dining. Come for the delicious and excellently priced made-to-order fresh pasta, not the ambience. All dishes are served in To Go boxes with plastic utensils. Service was good yet timing was off for 1 of our 4 dishes -- perhaps... More

Since opening this 2nd outpost, we eat here 2-4x a month. Well, we TAKE OUT from here that often, actually. Love it. Always order at least one chopped salad and sometimes there's more to it then other times ( I guess depending on who's working that night?? ) but all in all, the salads, soups and pasta are consistently fresh....
