Da Guido was recommended to us by our concierge, and we were very positively surprised by the authentic, excellent italian food served with passion by the owner and his team. No surprise, there were many Italian expats and visitors in the restaurant at Lygon street,...More

Had lunch here. The pasta and gnocchi was very good. Service was also good. Little extra touches like complimentary appetiser. Nice wine list and great to see some local Hawthorne beer on offer as well. Well worth a visit, and prices not over the top.

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
