The food here was extremely average as far as flavors are concerned and definitely not worth the hype around it. Have definitely had much better Italian in Melbourne than this. Serving sizes are average with prices above average. The wines were okay. Service was good...More

Dear Customer, I am sorry you didn’t like our food but from what you wrote in your review you showed a very low knowledge about Italian cuisine. “Left feeling hungry”? I remember very well your table and I also remember that you were in 4...More

In the neighbourhood Carlton you will find this authentic Italian restaurant. From the Caprese to the pasta, all is the real deal. As are (most of) the wines. Nice to sit outside on the boardwalk terrace.

Seat at the balcony and the vibe is very nice. Like how the restaurant is decorated. Food is little bit lower than my expectation from what I read from previous reviews but still ok:)

Our table of five enjoyed our lunch at Da Guido. We all had pasta which is freshly made on the premises which makes a big difference to the taste. Three of us had the ravioli with spinach, ricotta and truffle cheese which was a little...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
