You will not find a better Seafood fra diavolo in the Rochester area. In fact, as a fra diavolo aficionado, I have never had better than the fra diavolo at Guido's. And the bartender makes a great Manhattan, if you're into that sort of thing.

Great food and great service. The menu is very extensive from pasta, chicken, seafood, etc. etc. I live for their Eggplant Parm -- the best in the City. This place has a dedicated following and I have never had a bad meal there!

Guido's Pasta Villa has a friendly kind of free to do what you like atmosphere. I think casual dress goes right with the atmosphere. I am not sure about the Radisson Hotel distance to Guido's Pasta Villa. Sorry.
