Guido's - West LA
Old World AmbienceOur group of six enjoyed the good food while celebrating a special occasion. It was a pleasant change to be able to hear each other's conversation while dining.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dining experienceWe asked for as quiet a spot as they had, a table as opposed to a booth and got just that. Though the restaurant was busy, we were able to have a normal conversation without having to speak loudly to each other--a rarity in restaurants these days. The room was dimly lit and had a warm feel. The food was excellent--from the minestrone soup, the salmon (for me), the shrimp scampi (for my husband)and the fresh vegetables. The carrot cake was to die for. Service was excellent.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI had been wanting to comeI had been wanting to come to this restaurant for years and for some reason never went. Finally did and they did not disappoint. I went with my family (husband and two boys 8,10). Unpeccable friendly service and great italian cuisine. The chicken parmejan and gnocchi were great and so was the frutti salad. Great old world atmosphere and I felt like Frank Sinatra was going to walk in any moment. Definately go.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasure!As always, Angel, Ruben and the other staff made us feel at home. The food is always consistently delicious and the wait staff is very attentive and friendly. One of my most favorite West LA restaurants!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful neighborhood spotWonderful neighborhood spot with a darkened, romantic ambience. The elegant, polished-wood bar, unobtrusive but attentive service, and authentic Italian atmosphere create just the perfect place for a private intimate dinner or a gathering of friends. We found the wine list to be a little on the expensive side, but the selections are excellent; entrees are well-priced and our friends found many dishes to be very good to excellent--a truly enjoyable dining experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the Ravioli specialI had the Ravioli special and it was superb! House salad was really good.
David.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy spend the airfare to Italy?The fireplace and red-bulded leaded-glass lamps provide a subdued atmosphere. The staff accomodated my request for a half order of penne carbonara that came loaded with traditional panchetta and an accent of green peas. My partners shrimp was NOT "over bcooked like rubber", as requested and a oral delight because of it! Ask for one of the curved booths, sink in, and enjoy a by-gone treasure not readily found in LA.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMclassic old stype Italianclassic old stype Italian restaurant with really good food.

I cannot express how much I love the food, atmosphere and the employees. I have never been disappointed ~ EVER!1/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWILL TRY AGAIN-JUST ORDERED WRONGThis was my first time to go to Guido's, a place I've always been curious about. The bread was delicious. The salad was good. The pasta with "Italian Sausage" was horrible. I've never tasted sausage like this. It was bad. The service was superb. The atmosphere was really old school-cozy. It feels like you're on a movie set for The Godfather. I will go back to try something without meat. That place is all about veal and shrimp. Won't have either - against my ethics - but they do have a few veggie dishes that I will go back and try. Again, the service was BRILLIANT! Convenient valet parking, too.11/28/2012 12:00:00 AM
