Husband & I were in Durango a few weeks ago & did not feel like the usual fare of downtown. Heard about Guido's & thought we would give it a try. Once we found it ( not in the usual downtown ) had a wonderful experience & meal. Guido's is not your usual American/ Italian restraint. Very laid... read more

The food was good but the service was not up to par for an upscale restaurant. Ordered a martini and the bartender came back with a tiny martini glass that was half full. Sorry but I want a full martini for $10. There are over 140 restaurants in Durango and have always had great drinks. Just one of my pet... More

We serve a martini like any other restaurant which is 2 oz of gin or vodka. Our martini glasses are standard sized glasses. If the glass was filled to the top you would not be served a classic martini. Perhaps you ment to order a specialty martini instead. More

I have eaten a Guidos twice now and both times the food was about average. The meal didn't taste fresh or made to order but rather kind of like it was heated up to serve. I love great authentic Italian food and dislike large Italian chains but I would actually prefer Olive Garden than eating here again. I might go... More

Recommended by locals for great authentic Italian food. Wanted the oxtail stew but it wasn't available. So chose the clams n seafood pasta. Loved it! My partner tried the meatloaf n it was great with a nice rich sauce. Desserts were tiramisu n the gelato, all of which were home made, and they were delicious! With no liquor ordered the... More

We love sitting at the bar sharing the cheese and meat plate. It's a great place for quiet conversation and great food.

We always enjoy our meals here. Whether we have lunch or dinner the food is delicious. Good wine, food menu and dessert selections. The tiramisu is the best, not the soggy mess that is often served in restaurants. The cannoli is crisp. The restaurant is on 12th and Main putting it a few blocks north of most of the restaurants...

Good Italian food with great service. We really enjoyed our meal. My only complaint is that the portions were a bit small for the price. Durango is an expensive town for food so I understand the price, but I felt like we should have gotten more for our money.

My family and I were visiting Durango and decided to to try Guido's at the urging of a local. We have been to Italy several times and it has become one of our favorite foodie destinations - we never expected to find such authentic Italian cuisine in this town. We began our experience with lemon martinis, made with limoncello, but... More
