“Only place in Durango to allow dogs on Patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a lovely little place. And the only place in all of dog-unfriendly Durango to allow us to have our Maggie at our feet on their patio. The luncheon fare is quite good and they have a most unusual and yummy margarita.

“Italy in Durango”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Fantastic place for group and family gathering. We were on a road trip and have tried a few of the local restaurant but this one was our favorite. The foods were delicious, staff and our waitress was very nice and friendly. The atmosphere and food kind of reminded us of Italy we went during this summer. We would definitely eat here again.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Someone suggested we try Guido's, and we're glad we did! My spouse had eggplant parmesan which he loved (appeared to be baked and breadcrumb-less). I had the wonderful Ghiottone Salad. Our daughter had two appetizers which she was very happy with. The wine we ordered was quite good. The restaurant had a deli feel - perfect for lunch or an informal dinner. Service was excellent. We watched our server handle a couple who said the wine they were served was bad; she handled the situation like a true professional. Food, service and ambiance all were great. We'll be back!

“Wonderful lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Recently, while visiting Durango, CO, a friend and I had lunch at Guido's Deli near downtown. We both ordered a meatball sandwich and a glass of wine. Both were very good, especially the meatballs...tender and tasty. For dessert we each had a homemade gelato cone. Excellent! I wish I had one right now. My only complaint was that I would have liked more tomato sauce on the sandwich, but then I always like a lot of sauce on every dish. When we return again, we want to go for dinner.

“Very good homemade Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We enjoyed Guidos. I had the veal and my husband had a pasta dish. It is a limited menu, but ours was very good. The gelato is excellent and looks like a good deli as well.
