Da Guido is like dining in Italy- fresh, seasonal ingredgients cooked simply and presented elegantly. The service was so professional, warm & friendly and is run by a family business, originally started in Venice in the 70s.. We had amazing seafood pasta and ink squid pasta. The ravioli are also wonderful. Everything was lush and we will definitely go back and try the starters and desserts next time. There’s a lovely atmosphere, great wine, and professional service. Will definitely be going back.

My husband and I chose this restaurant from trip advisor reviews. We booked mid week at 7pm
Very easy to book on line with email confirmation follow up.
We were very warmly greeted and this exceptional service continued all thru our dining experience, consistent from every waiter.
To start we chose the calamari salad and a beautiful soft centred cheese and cherry tomato basil dish, recommendation by our waiter, both well presented and delicious.
Soft fresh focaccia came with the starters.
For mains we had the Shank served in a delicious gravy on mash with extra on the side and fresh pasta stuffed with scollops in an asparagus, spring onion butter sauce.
Our side was a very yummy pear, walnut balsamic salad.
Dessert the Tiramisu experience to share.
I gave 4 stars as my pasta was a little over cooked, however very tasty.
I would certainly like to try more from the menu to have the five star experience others have had.
Thoroughly recommend

We read the TripAdvisor reviews and arrived at Da Guido at 6 PM when they opened for dinner. What a treat! It’s a family owned Italian restaurant- Chef Barbara is an excellent chef. The dishes were prepared fresh and with much love and care, from the freshest of ingredients. The waiters were very friendly especially Luca. And the food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant has many decor from Italy - like Murano glass glasses used for serving water. The dishes were not cheap - but the whole experience was worth every penny!

First time at Da Guido restaurant and eager to check out their menu. There kitchen in in the actual eatery and it’s amazing to see the chefs at work. The staff are very chatty and well informed with the Italian cuisine and their menu. If you choose to have a dish from each of the entrees, primo piatto, mains etc (as we did!) you will be rewarded with gorgeous Italian. All dishes were amazing. One of the best steaks with eggplant I have tasted. Pasta is homemade and sauces are delicious. Prosciutto crudo, artichoke hearts, salmon ravioli, linguini and misto salad - all melt in mouth and just a wonderful experience. Our hint- order and share dishes. We will be back.

Refined Italian cuisine on Lygon St in Melbourne. After much research into which restaurant in Carlton to visit with the kids for our last night in Melbourne, made a reservation at Da Guido. The best decision, a flawless experience from the moment we arrived. My RE invented Carbonara with the sauce held in parcels of pasta, accompanied by crispy pancetta. The highlight was the Tiramisu, served with shot of expresso. Pour it on, watch it soak through for 5 mins, then devour! Da Guido Melbourne La Pasta is a must when visiting Melbourne, a true highlight of this ‘eat street’
