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

In this restaurant everything is perfect. I had Ravioli with snapper as entree, and the most spectacular steak I ever had in my life. Very tasty and tender. Well done! Strongly recommended!

What wonderful food, ambience and service at Da Guido. I can’t recommend it highly enough. The food is by far the best in Lygon street and the restaurant provides authentic northern Italian cuisine. The kitchen is in full view and it’s great how you can...More

Lygon Street has a lot of Italian restaurants - some good and some not so good. We chose this one on the quality of the reviews and were not disappointed. The food is not inexpensive but it is really good - as is the service...More

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 neighbourhood 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
