“A memorable birthday dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

It had been a number of years since I had been in to Da Guido's and it is even better than I remembered. I was asked where I would like to go for my birthday and I so glad that I suggested Da Guido. Our servers were over the top and we did not even look at any menu's, once they found out it was a birthday dinner we were treated to a superb selection, picked for us, that continued right through to our dessert and special coffees'. The atmosphere was very relaxed and it was apparent the other patrons were enjoying themselves as well. We will be back very soon.

“Consistently Amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I can't say enough great things about Guido, his staff and the food at Da Guido. it's always exceptional and the welcome and service is second to none. This is one of the finest restaurants in Calgary, but it remains unpretentious and still affordable. We can honestly say that we have always left Da Guido's with full bellies and smiles on our faces ( and often a doggie bag or two). If you love Italian food, you just have to try anything on the menu. It's obvious that Chef Guido has a passion and talent in spades when it comes to feeding the hungry.

“Mi Amore. I love this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We had the best italian meal ever here. The free standing building is just amazing, the decor and atmosphere are beyond any Italian eatery in Calgary. We drive from the far end of town just to enjoy and never be dissappointed in the food and service. I wish we lived closer, however they might get sick of us if we did. The pasta is over the top and the wine list is very extensive. I find the pricing to be very reasonable for the quality. If you have the chance to meet Guido it is a treat such a personable, charming man.
Enjoy.

“Our Second Time Here !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Last week, my husband and I decided to have a pasta dinner at Da Guido Restaurant. We were able to get seated right away without a reservation. The server brought us hot bread with butter and some fresh tasty bruschetta as well. We had the calamari for appetizers, and then ordered the Linguine Pescatora for our entrees. I had the white sauce and my husband had the red sauce. We always like seafood linguine and we enjoyed our dinner that evening. The service was excellent and we laughed and joked with the workers and they made us feel like we were family. For dessert we shared the pear with hazelnut and they were nice enough to even cut it in half and serve it on separate plates for us. We had a cappucino and a latte to end our fine dinner. This is a nice cozy restaurant and they are always making sure your water glass is full and your needs are taken care of right away.
