This is like being back in the 1980s but in a good way. Attentive service and wonderful food. There is a lounge in which to sit, enjoy a drink and peruse the menu. Your order is taken while you are still relaxing over your drink and you are invited to take your table about 15mins down the line. The waiter... More

There appears to be new carpeting throughout, and the whole décor is clean and fresh. Old English beamed ceiling in restaurant, and no music.Only the Italians know how to serve a pre meal Campari soda, and mine was no exception. Set me up for the day! There appears to be an established clientele (local?). There is good class table linen/cutlery.... More

This is a nice restaurant and still one of the best in Amersham, The service is good and traditional although the waiters don't always listen such us covering their excellent roast duck with the sauce when asked not to do so. The gambas were excellent though and this is one of the only places that offer them. The desserts were... More

Guido's is a strange place - it's like stepping back in time. The decor is pink carpets and table linen, old brown furniture and flowery curtains. But the service is also old-fashioned: very attentive, taking coats to the cloakroom, serving drinks at the bar while you browse the menu. It's also very expensive, so we only go for special occasions,... More

Went for a friends 60th birthday We had a whole room to ourselves. The service was old school and properly served. The food was hot and portions big. Nothing was to much trouble. Fantastic night. I understand they do a Sunday lunch that is good too.

We used to use this restaurant on special occasions because it is very expensive for what you get. From the nibbles in the bar (which could be so much better quality, include nuts and even be topped up when the tiny bowl is emptied!) to the main menu of which we all have our favourites, I would now say this...

Had a 90th birthday celebration here on a Sunday lunchtime, had a few drinks in the small bar area before our meal, have to say not a good selection of lagers available but it was ok. Food and service was very good and could not be faulted, restaurant was very busy and best to prebook for meals at weekends, limited... More

We come here for special occasions and always enjoy the excellent service with Italian personality and it's 'old fashioned' feel - like restaurants used to be! The food is always good and particularly the atmosphere for Sunday lunch is perfect if you like a relaxed but 'a bit more formal' ambience. Really good and don't expect fast pizzas - just... More

Excellent service, even better food and can be personalised in the event of a special occasion, and the management are so experienced and accommodating.

I do enjoy going here, it's like a time warp! It is a shame it is so expensive....so it's special occasion only. Bit stuffy & old fashioned really, sorry.
