From the Bartender thru the Bus Girl, the service was outstanding and so was the food. We celebrate my MIL's BDay there every year. She loves it and they love her.

I'm not a regular at Guido's Pasta Villa like so many of the other people from Irondequoit you see there. And believe me, it's a bit of a blast from the past when you enjoy a seat at the bar with the locals (I'll say no more for the sake of being politically correct. You need to experience it yourself).... More

Our friends invited us to go with them and said this was the best Italian food outside of Italy. We had two calamari dishes for appetizers. Both had excellent flavors, but both were slightly overcooked. It is such a fine line between perfect and slightly overcooked and hard to achieve. Unfortunately these were not perfect. Since there were two opportunities... More

Want a genuine Italian restaurant with fabulous food, great servers and excellent bartenders? This is the place! I am highly critical of how my pasta sauce is made and this sauce is phenomenal! I love the lunch specials as well as the dinner specials. Come hungry!

It is easy to miss this place if you are looking for it. once you find it, the wait for a table is well worth it. The pasta is excellent, so many good meals on the menu. My favorite is Seafood Fra Diavlo, lots of seafood with spicy marinara on it with your choice of pasta (ziti). If you do... More

It was my pleasure to introduce Pasta Villa to two friends today for lunch. The service is spectacular; the food is thoroughly authentic Italian. Best Greens and Beans in the city! Going there is like being transported to Italy.

Good service, food &menu. The best scampi calimari. Pricing is reasonable. Easy parking near entrance. Just off the highway.

Pasta Villa is the best Italian restaurant in town. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. The place is quite small so be prepared for a wait - but it is worth it

With a name like Guido's, it has to be authentic! We looked up Italian restaurants, and there was no shortage of them, but so glad we ended up at Guido's. It is a small intimate place, we sat at the bar and ate dinner since the wait in the main room was long. The bartender was great, full of conversation... More

This is a tiny little place right next to our Hampton Inn but what a FIND it was!!! Taking the advice of locals that sat in the bar next to us while we waited for our table, we tried the Greens and Beans. I don't even LIKE greens, but these escarole greens with white beans and sausage make your taste... More
