“Nice Italian deli/restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2008

We happened upon this Italian deli/restaurant at the end of Main Street shopping district, at 12th & Main. The deli was full of dozens of cheeses and Italian meats, and the imported dry goods were nice, too. Wish we'd have brought a cooler to take some home with us.

We ate lunch at the restaurant and really enjoyed the food. My husband wasn't a big fan of eating in the middle of a deli (both the restaurant and deli were in one big room), but otherwise it was just fine. The bread was great. He liked the meat lasagna, and I thought the eggplant was well-done. We couldn't believe how big dessert was. Since we hadn't been to a real Italian restaurant in months, we ordered gelato and tiramisu (have to try a little of everything!). The pistachio gelato was definitely the best we've had since being in Italy.

Our server was really great, and the decor was really reminiscent of Italian trattorie. We'll definitely be back!

“perfect place for a light lunch or takeout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2006

We stopped at Guido's looking for a light meal, and what a perfect place! The grocery is on the small side but full of authentic Italian items, and the deli counter - heaven! There's a wide array of gourmet cheeses and meats, not to mention delicious salads! My husband had fresh mozzarella with a few slices of prosciutto di parma, and I had the caprese salad and another salad made with fresh green beans, breadcrumbs and a little anchovy paste that was just to die for. Very pleasant, friendly staff and atmosphere.
