“Best pizza you can get..”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Since i first had the pizza 5 years ago, no other pizza compares.
The crust is thin.. all the toppings fresh and authentic, sauce is made fresh and is the best sauce i have ever tasted. All the flavors blend so well, you don't need a ton of toppings or heavy cheese.

If pizza is not your choice the spaghetti bolognese is amazing.

“ok, but pricey”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The location is convenient if you plan to catch a dinner and a movie. Restaurant is owned by the same guy who also owns Ristorante Firenze two stores down ( a more upscale Italian restaurant). The décor is modern and the tables are not too crowded in, which is nice. All the waitresses (didn’t see a waiter) are wearing black mini skirts or some other sort of black outfits (doesn’t give you that Italian feel, but whatever  ).
Main thing to look at is the food. I found the portions ok, but overall quite pricey. $15 for a Pizza is at the upper range in my opinion. Dough and chewiness was nice (much better than the standard Americanized Pizza you get at the regular joints, but still not the same as a true Italian one you get in NYC or Italy). But… the toppings are very very thin. Had the Quattro Stagioni which tasted ok, but was a pale comparison to what I expected. The 4 (Quattro ) parts of the pizza where jumbled together and the 4 individual toppings were not separated but all over the pie. And while it contained all the 4 items, it was a very small amount of them. For example 2 small thin slices of ham (tasted like turkey ham to me) was all there was, then some mushrooms and cheese. Taste was ok, but on the bland side.
Overall, the dough kind of saved it, but for the price it was a bit disappointing. Service was nice and friendly, no question here.

“Best Pizza in Northwest!!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Guido's makes an amazing Napolitan style pizza (wood fired, thin crust). My favorite is prosciutto e funghi. This is a casual environment with a family friendly Italian flair. Owner Salvatore Lembo is often present to give heartfelt Italian greetings to regulars. His daughter Valentina and regular waiters like Heriberto are always warm and sometimes quite comical to keep the atmosphere fun and light. The wine selection includes wine from Salvatore's Italian vineyard and they keep good beer on tap.

“True Italian pizza. So delish!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

While this restaurant is definitely not in the "good" area of Bellevue, the pizza is beyond good. It's virtually an exact taste replica of Pizzeria Buffetta in Rome. We love the mushroom, sausage and garlic, the prosciutto and arugula and the classic margarita. Skip the little black dress clad owners daughters and ask for Heriberto. He's the heart of the place. He never forgets a face and definitely adds to the atmosphere and general feeling of family. Ushering you in, asking how you've been and picking up on the last conversation you had you instantly feel like their best regular. There's a solid wine list and a relaxed, casualness to the place that lets you just sit back and enjoy your meal. Ask for the house olive oil blend. It's an amazing garlicky blend that you won't be able to get enough of. And the best part of this taste feast, the price. The menu and price point is such that this can quickly become a consistent dinner out without breaking the bank. We find ourselves here about every other week. Once you taste this pizza you will too
