This was our second year on a golf trip to Melbourne. Last year 12 very happy diners gave a standing ovation to the chefs and waiting staff. Could they maintain the same level this year? From the superb starters through a selection of main meals...More

We had dinner at Guido with a group of 30. All of us enjoyed the warm welcome of the owner and staff. You can come to Guido for the authentic Italian food: fresh pasta and fresh ingredients

Not a very extensive menu by Lygon Street standards, but the focus is on quality and not quantity, pasta cooked to perfection and service that is first class, a must do on the Lygon restaurant strip

We had an excellent experience at Da Guido. The service was really outstanding and the food simply delicious. We had an excellent squid ink tagliatelle - house-made pasta - with calamari. Recommended!

We reserved a table last minute and were so happy with our choice. From the warm welcome to the home made pasta, everything was just marvelous. Best Italian food in a long time. Will definitely come back next time we are in Melbourne.

Very pricy for no food. The menu is limited. We got started with pumpkin sup served in coffe cup, same proportion of a short black. The pasta was absolutely ridiculous for the price. The gnocchi they were liquefying in the mouth, and the fettuccine with...More

Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighborhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way

Our menu was drawn up with special focus on homemade pasta, which we prepare every day using fresh natural ingredients. We use prime quality ingredients imported from Italy as well as select Australian products. To ensure genuine Venetian taste and style the dishes are exclusively prepared by Italian chefs trained in our restaurant in Italy.
