I never write reviews of restaurants, but I couldn't resist this time. I ate at Guido's for the first time just last night, and ordered the pizza with prosciutto and funghi. Since we returned from a trip to Italy this past summer, I've been underwhelmed by all of the major-chain pizza offerings; loaded with cheese and meats, they just weren't my idea of pizza anymore. If I ate pizza, I cooked it at home.
Imagine my surprise and joy while I watched our wonderful waitress put my pizza down in front of me! It was just like what I was served in Rome; not too much cheese or sauce, nice thin crust, and perfectly cooked. The prosciutto and mushrooms were delicious. It was a perfect pizza experience. I couldn't have asked for more; great pizza and a cold glass of Moretti that they have on tap. From now on, if I'm not cooking my own, I'm going to Guido's!
My wife and I love coming here to have a pizza before or after a movie at Crossroads. The thin crust pizzas are great and it's cools to sometimes get a glimpse of them hand tossing the dough in the kitchen. The mandolin player on Saturday nights is really good too.
I wasn't really craving pizza the last time we ate there so I asked the waiter what else they had and he told me that they let you order anything off the menu at Firenze Ristorante Italiano (two doors down).
Sometimes the center of the Pizza can be a bit under cooked but I just aske them to cook mine a little longer.
Last time in, out waiter also told me they have started using OpenTable for online reservations. So now we can get our OpenTable points when we eat there.
Pros: Easy Parking, online reservations, nice atmosphere, not too pricey. Great for groups.
Cons: sometimes the pizza is a little undercooked in the middle
Good pizza as well as other choices. Convenient with plenty of parking. Service was both friendly and attentive.
I'm new to Microsoft and the Seattle area as of just a few months ago and one Friday night had a hankering for pizza after work. I ran across this restaurant after shopping at Crossroads Mall with a friend. The pizza is amazing! It is thin-crust, gourmet and traditional rustic Italian style. I was very impressed. I had the Quattro Stagioni and my friend ordered the Margherita - we also shared a bottle of wine and started with salads. The wine was very good as well - and the bill was pretty reasonable. It got crowded that night, but our waitress was attentive to us anyway. I highly recommend this pizzeria. It has a good atmosphere for something romantic and/or casual or a quick business meeting.
Pros: Ambience, Service, AMAZING food, Parking, Great Wine
I'm new to Bellevue and i've been moving around because of work from east coast to the midwest and now the northwest. I stumble into this Italian PizzeriaGuido (i was in Italy for 6 months a couple of years back) and they had all my favorites, from the quattro stagione pizza to calzone Napoletano and lasagna Bolognese, me and my girlfriend starving from apartment hunting all day decided to enjoy ourselves, what a delicious meal! and the waitress was so nice, attentive and relaxed even though the restaurant was full (we werent rushed at all) and we even practice our Italian with her. The food came out relatively fast and hot
( they also have an oven as the ones i saw back in Italy, imported?)so we were able to enjoy our bottle of wine from their extensive wine list ! I'm coming back with friends, they also have a flat screen so i can watch the soccer games, i became a juventus fan when i was living abroad.
Pros: great food, friendly service, lots of parking
Good thin crust pizza, terrible service. After three visits, I'm giving up on this one. Last time, I went for lunch, there were only 2 other small tables. After 30 minutes of no liquid, I had to go up to the counter to ask the grumpy waiter. The salads are wilted and have way too much dressing.
