Very Good Italian

My wife and I were visiting Durango and walked into this interesting Italian restaurant/market combo. The service was somewhat slow but quite friendly and gracious. This restaurant would not be a good choice for a quick lunch! The quality of food at this establishment is high as was the cost... read more

If your looking for authentic Italian food this is the place for you! I don't usually write reviews but felt compelled to do so because the food was so good! I can't help but to laugh at the lame people that write reviews that know nothing about real food. This place is not stuffy just real down to earth good... More

I ordered Eggplant Parmesan to go.When I arrived home and opened it was a 4 x 4 piece of Eggplant floating in marinara sauce for 14.00. I called to ask if I could come pick up the pasta I thought accompanied this dish. Come to find out it is an additional 14.00 for any side of pasta. I am Italian... More

Our Eggplant Parmesan is a normal size portion and yes we do add some additional sauce to it. We make everything from scratch here nothing from a can or box. Our food is served exactly the way it would be served in Italy that means without pasta. We also realize that this may not be appealing to all and we... More

This was a find for us looking for some good Italian food and it could not have been better.Everything made in house and very very fresh.The appitizers were excellent as well as the apnin I had which took the cake for the best pannini ever.There was nothing to dislike about the place.

We were in the mood for Italian after riding the Train from Silverton. We hiked the 12 blocks to Guidos and were disappointed with the service and over all atmosphere. I heard from the server numerous times no we can't do that because we are an authentic Italian restaurant. No to a side of pasta with the meatballs, no to... More

We have eaten at Guido's every summer for the last 6 or 7 years on our annual trips to visit family who still live in Durango. Initially, it was one of our favorite restaurants in town. We travel a lot. We like fine food. We have eaten fine Italian food all over the world, in Italy itself and on both... More

Was the poorest meal I've ever had in an Italian restaurant. My husband ordered veal it was 1/2 the size of my hand. He felt it wasnt fresh cooked but reheated and Rosemary potatoes were not fresh cooked. My lasagna was passable. Service was good. Overpriced for what you get.

Dined here on a light evening meal after a long day on the train. Menu is diverse with something for everyone and, of course, a selection of wines. Salads are tasty and fresh as are the entres. Our meal was not complicated and took "awhile." Service was good and ambiance is delightful with outdoor seating available.

Amount of food for the price was my main disappointment. I ordered the turkey marsala,,,,, which was good, but there was no vegetable, bread, or salad to go with. Husbands salad was small with very thin beef, cheese; tasted good but too small for the price. service was ok. I will not be back, not what we were looking for.

We pride ourselves on serving Authentic Italian food at Guido's. Should you get the opportunity to travel to Italy you would see that Authentic style Italian food is served on seperate plates and in courses. The portion sizes are smaller and the quality of the food is very important unlike most American style Italian food. The very thin beef you... More
