Set in a rather lackluster courtyard Guidos offer both indoors and outdoors seating. In the middle of the restaurant a "guardtower-like" second floor terrace, offering a a light breeze and non-thrilling views, overlooks the establishment. The main attraction here however is niether the setting nor the atmosphere. Guido's is about the food. On the menu you can find grilled meat, fish, burgers, pasta and risotto. All are good and well cooked but actully quite forgettable compared to Guido's main attraction...the pizzas. The pizzas here are the best in Bamako...by a mile. They are just mouth watering. Try Pizza Chef and let your taste spuds dance around in your mouth. If you are only having one pizza when in Bamako...go to Guido's. Bring insect repellent, though, because you will likely be the dish of the evening on the mosquito menu...

If staying in the area (next to the US embassy) this is definitely a good option. Good pizza (and a fairly diverse menu) in a nice garden area.

This is the closest you can get to Italian food in Bamako, and not bad.

The pizzas are ok albeit not totally Italian, the pastas are fine. Things are generally a bit overspiced and oily but not too bad.

In ACI 2000. Great pizza. Surprisingly good steaks and salads. Upstairs outdoor dining area particularly nice during the cooler rainy season when the air is clear. Attentive service. Can go for either just snacks and drinks, or full meal. Open late. Great place for social gatherings.

I try to go once every time I am Bamako. For sure it is a point of reference to eat a nice pizza. Always pleasant.
