We went back for more niceness

We dined here a few years ago and were pleased and so we returned in February. Generally very satisfactory. Good size, tasty portions and staff are attentive and pleasant.

I took my wife here for a Valentines Day Dinner. It was absolutely superb. From the moment we arrived it all went like clockwork. The staff were so efficient and friendly and the food was Oh! so tasty. We will definitely be going back there again and highly recommend it for a place to go for a "special meal or... More

Our first visit to this restaurant as recommended and booked by friends. I agree with other comments about it being old fashioned but that wasn't really an issue for me personally, however the staff have clearly been there since day one. Initially the service was very good but we found as the evening went on the staff were less attentive... More

A visit to Guido was like stepping back into my childhood or at least my first dining experiences with my parents in the 80s. If you go with it, you can have a great night out. You sit in the bar on arrival to peruse the menu and order a drink. Service is from large platters at the table. Steak... More

Was on business and tried this place as close to where I was staying. A little bit too old fashioned for me - I quite like having vegetables left on the table so I can help myself and decide how much I would like rather than them being served. Was a little taken aback that some carrots and potatoes cost... More

Can't go wrong here with the food ,I have always found it great, and I come about 3 or 4 times a year. The waiters have for the most part been here for ever and the service is normally superb. My one criticism is it can feel a little old fashioned and the menu although to my tastes doesn't change... More

Having past the restaurant several times we decided to give Guidos a try - not sure what we were going to experience following the ratings on trip advisor. The restaurant is indeed still in the 70's - the decor definitely needs updating if they want to attract a wider demographic. We were greeted and seated in the lounge to choose... More

My father held his 80th birthday party here, inviting 16 adults and 5 young children, and we were here for Sunday lunch. We had a spacious, private room, well away from the main dining room so the children could "wander" between courses without annoying other diners. The room was beautifully set out and the serving staff could not have been... More

I live near by and have eaten there 4 times in 28 years tried to enjoy but have never had a good meal yet. I worked in Italy for 3 years and this does not come anywhere near to anything I experienced in Italy. Would never recommend this restaurant to anyone!
