Old school italian

Guido has been going for yonks! Food and service is very old school and very delicious! Very pricey though and difficult to get a place there! Must book! Tiramisu is delicious, actually the whole dessert trolley is! Portions are large and yummy. Very good overall!

Excellent food and service as always. Great restaurant for special occasions; prices may seem high but this isn't a normal restaurant experience, it is worth the extra.

You know exactly where you are with Guidos. It has not changed in 20 years ! Service is superb in a lovely dining room with linen and silver. The menu is very old fashioned but I do think there is something for everyone. My husband had the best Dover sole. There is even a sweet trolley !!!!!!!!

It was my first time at Guido's, visiting with my boyfriend, his parents and his grandparents, who had all visited before and save it for only very special occasions. We were greeted very amicably and drink orders were taken while looking at the menu. Waiters were knowledgeable when it came to the food and wine, and were very pleasant. At... More

Went to Guido's for an informal family dinner on a generic Monday, but the whole experience was just superb and unforgettable! Proper Italian restaurant, proper genuine hospitality. Masters on their job. Every single detail was taken care of and a touch of elegance was the silverware. Food sublime and simply perfect, we had different dishes, meat/fish/pasta and everything was spotless.... More

Having been recommended by a friend to try Guido's, we were not disappointed. It was a pleasure to experience some good old fashioned service with spotless table cloths and proper napkins. The service was excellent, portions of food very generous, and all good quality

Service was excellent. Attentive and friendly. Food overall was very good. Well cooked and plentiful. Only slight disappointment were the potatoes which were slightly undercooked. All in all well recommended.

I feel guilty robbing Guido's of two stars as the service has always been, and remains, typically attentive, friendly and efficient, and they really do try very hard to please. They succeed too, but I suspect mostly to a generation brought up in the '70s on very rich, heavy sauces and "traditional" (tired) dishes. Although everything is well prepared and... More

I went to Guidos recently with my husband and friends. None of us had been there for years and we wanted to try it again. Service was good and the food was good Italian. We would return again.
