Diners searching the Coatbridge-Airdrie area east of Glasgow for true Italian food are advised to seek out Trattoria Guidi, a long-standing trattoria-style Italian restaurant close to Coatdyke station with a vast dining space open fire and separate lounge bar.

Eminently Italian, but an Airdrie institution, Trattoria Guidi is careful to source only the best produce when it comes to preparing to order items from the extensive menu at their Deedes Street restaurant and pizzeria.

Once again our meal at Guidi's was fantastic! My only problem is deciding what I want because there is so much choice and I love everything I've ever tried in here. The atmosphere and service was excellent as always. We will be back!
Food and service usual high standard. Tried Fritto Misto as starter. Excellent. May try as main course another time.
Arrived twenty minutes early. Shown to table without delay. Friendly, efficient service from waiting staff. Meals delivered to table timeout. Minestrone excellent. Salsa Della Casa pasta sauce really worth a try. Worked well with both penne and tagliatelle.
