The culinary sorcerers at Guido’s Restaurant wield fresh ingredients to conjure up the robust dishes that adorn the menu of authentic Italian cuisine. Mealtime munching begins with the caesar salad ($10), which lays out a bed of romaine lettuce upon which croutons and parmesan cheese snuggle together and tell each other ghost stories beneath a blanket of Guido's house caesar dressing. The lasagna romagnola layers noodles with robust meat sauce and melted cheese ($14), and specialty, made-from-scratch salmon ravioli swims through a zesty pink sauce ($18.50). Costolette di vitello silences grousing stomachs with a grilled veal chop topped in a madeira-wine-and-mushroom sauce ($23), pairing well with sips from an extensive wine list and explanations of why most meat-cooking grills make for poor tooth coverings.

Upon entering Guido's Restaurant, patrons delight in the rustic Old World charm of the plush red booths and hand-carved dark-wood accents that adorn the dining room, affording diners a DeLorean-free time-traveling experience. Noshers in search of fresh air can enjoy their edibles on Guido's outdoor patio.

Guido's Restaurant

Guido's Restaurant hasn't changed much since opening in 1979. It hasn't had to. The same fireplace still crackles by red booths that are both plush and spacious. The same carved wooden statues and floral accents line the walls and support the bar. And the same deep-stained hardwood columns and wine racks add a smoky sophistication, recalling a mountain lodge or Winston Churchill's childhood treehouse. When cast in low light, these exude nostalgia to create a vintage atmosphere ideal for dates or family meals.

The food is equally classic—Northern Italian recipes that have found their way from generation to generation. The authenticity is apparent in their ingredients. Swiss chard and fresh basil sink into the ravioli di magro, whereas white wine and porcini mushrooms complement the pollo toscana. And if that taste of wine isn't enough, high-end and more modest varietals from California and across the globe can be fetched from the cellar.
