A booking is essential at Da Guido - you will have no chance of getting a table on a walk-in basis. There isn't really a menu and the waiters will tell you what is available that evening. The portions are generous, so generous that we could only manage the antipasti misti and a pasta course. We managed to share two desserts between five of us before waddling off into the warm evening for a stroll,
The antipasti misti consisted ham & figs, two forms of mushroom dishes, local boar paté, garlic toast, cold pork cuts, cured meats, cheeses with honey, olives, bread and probably some that I have forgotten. The pasta dishes were divine. The pici pasta with truffle shavings was exquisite. The ravioli tartufo was sublime and the wold boar tagliatelle was stunning. However by this stage we were already full. This is just as well because the steaks that arrived at the next table were truly gargantuan! The desserts were good too. All of this was washed down with soft drinks for the children, a couple of bottles of the local vino Morellino di Scansano (house) and digestifs. There wasn't a proper bill either - just a piece of paper with €150 (for 5 people) scribbled on it. Gotta love the place. The only thing stopping me giving a 5* review was that there was too much food!!!!
Thanks to all the staff at Da Guido for making the evening such an experience.

We went there for dinner, and were ready for Guido's delicious food. We started with a antipasti misti, followed by four sorts of pastas, two with local truffle (amazing), two without (delicious). At that stage, only the most motivated followed... The pigeon was good, but not at delicious as the lamb and the cinghiale (wild boar). A nice tiramisu was the way to end this fantastic dinner, served with a very good house wine.
Don't miss the experience, go to Guido, and take cash with you, as the card machine doesn't always work...

This was a recommendation by an Italian colleague of mine, and he was right - THE BEST. Make reservations even during the week otherwise no chance to get a table with the professionally excellent and very friendly service. The starter antipasti have been special the amount and selection, mushrooms two kinds, olive, bread, vegetables, and many many more - we could not finish it all even it was a starter!!!! As we did order pasta Tagliatelle tartufo, my wife said the best in her life and she is a pasta-baby!!! So wine red is better then red and all the other great food we have seen was excellent. Next time we are in the area we will come back as this is a food tasteing experience, Thanks to the DaGuido Team.

I ate at this restaurant yesterday evening with my husband and son - it wasn't just a meal, it was a culinary experience. There's no menu as such, the waiter just explains the courses and you choose as you go along. It's typically Tuscan with lots of wild boar, porcini mushrooms and truffles, but with some more unusual choices such as rabbit and pigeon. Each course was superb, all hand made with fresh local ingredients - when we couldn't decide on a 'primo', we were offered a 'tris' - three different types to try. We were also amazed at the reasonable price. After living in Italy for many years, this was right up there with the best we've ever eaten, it's not to be missed, but make sure you book in advance e as it's always full.

We spent an amazing evening at restaurant Da Guido.
Excellent food and excellent hospitality. Everything was home made starting from the olive oil and wine and finishing with the desserts.
It was one of the best culinary experience that I ever had. The staff was super friendly and we felt at home!
For sure we will come back!
Thank you Guido!
