This restaurant is fairly small so I suggest making a reservation. However, there is a bar area with extra seating if you don't. Atmosphere is pleasant and the food/service is well worth the wait. Looking forward to going back soon!

Echoing others, if you are looking for Italian food done traditionally and generously, this is the place. Note - all the pasta is not home made. Specify that you want the home made to your server. If you go non-Italian (like steak) they still dazzle....More

This restaurant is very crowded all time Table are very close. Food is beyond good. This restaurant is very hustle and bustle all the time. Very small bar area and on Friday and Saturday night it is near impossible to get a drink.

Yes-long wait to be seated. Yes-long wait to be served. Worth the wait? Absolutely. We had Italian Wedding Soup, which is nothing like we've had anywhere, to the Gnocchi with Vodka Sauce, Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Escarole, Eggplant Parm with Fettuccine, and gluten-free Penne with White...More

Only thing wrong is it was so crowded on a Wednesday night the we had to wait an hour to be seated. But, the food and service made the wait worth it. And, it was quite reasonably priced.

Guido's Pasta Villa has a friendly kind of free to do what you like atmosphere. I think casual dress goes right with the atmosphere. I am not sure about the Radisson Hotel distance to Guido's Pasta Villa. Sorry.
