Anytime we are in Colorado we make a stop at Guidos. The food is always well prepared. Prices are a little bit high, but good food doesn't come cheap. If you want cheap food, there are plenty of places all over the US. When it's good, well prepared with the right product, expect to pay more. Portions size are good. Love the osso bucco, so rare to find a decent one in the country. Gelato is delicious. Service was always attentive and friendly. The place is great and clean. Will be back next year !

A pretentious attempt at faux italian. Give me a break, $20 something bucks for a piece of fish or veal with NO sides, NO starch (like pasta you crazy Italian wanna be's). The service is slow and the food is uninspired and very inconsistent. And the specials are always weird and creepy - calf liver? Now isn't that special! If you're going to pretend to be Italian and gouge your customers, how abiut some homemade pasta, fresh fish, vibrant sauces and fresh ingredients. And for Mussolini's 's sake, put 50 cents worth of starch on the plate!

Our family ate here for lunch; we sat outside. The service was a bit slow and the food a bit on the pricier side, given the quantity served. That said, the food was very good. We all had paninis with either sides of soup, salad or pasta salad. We'd would have liked to have been able to go back and give their dinner entrees a try.

We stopped here while traveling through Colorado for lunch. It is a deli as well as a really nice restaruant. I had the meatball sandwich. It is not the customary beef chunks in a bun with red sauce. This is great bread with meatballs wrapped in cheese with a light sauce. Very tasty, and too big for me to eat. The side item was tomatoes with cheese - forget the name. Another light tasty addition.
My wife had the mussels and said they were some of the best she had ever eaten.
If we weren't traveling we would have returned for dinner.
The deli had a wide assortment of meats & cheeses and well as custom pasta. We purchased an Irish oatmeal - and used it this moring. Very good and only takes 5 minutes to make, not like other steel cut varieties that take a half hour.
The restaurant has white table clothes and attentive wait staff. When one ( not our person) saw me struggling a bit with cutting my bread, he gave me a steak knife. Service, friendliness and an elegance not usual in a blace that has deli on the sign.
We would return here again.

We were on our way back from California, traveling to Colorado and stayed overnight in Durango. We decided to eat dinner at Guido's. It appeared to be primarily a deli, but there were several tables inside and on the patio in front. There was no hostess, but there was a sign that said "seat yourself". We did and then began noticing several unbused tables. Our waiter took about 6 or 7 minutes before he greated us and gave us menus and a wine list. It took another 6 or 7 minutes before he took our drink orders and we gave him our entire order (wine, appetizer and main courses) since we did not expect to see him again any time soon. He said that they were short staffed and that service was going to be a little slow. Our wine showed up pretty quickly and that was the end of the service. We noticed two other tables served by the waiter walk out. Interestingly, the waitress working at the same time seemed to have no problem getting her tables served. A couple and their son sat down at a table next to us AFTER we received our wine and they were served an appetizer and their main courses before we had ANY food served to us. That was the last straw - after 45 minutes of no food and being ignored we asked for the check, paid for the wine and headed done the road to another restaurant.
I have no idea how the food tasted, but I doubt it was worth the wait. If you decide to go to Guido's make sure it isn't too crowded.
