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. Not content with simply offering just a classic menu of Italian dishes, Trattoria Guidi also doubles as one of Airdrie’s most popular pizzeria and offers patrons the chance to take a slice of Italy home with them from the in-house deli. Care and attention is given to the sourcing of the ingredients at Guidi’s, meaning the delicacies created in this Deedes Street kitchen are as fresh as possible.
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. The services of a local Coatbridge butcher are called upon to supply Guidi’s with grass-fed and traditionally-matured beef, while Scottish salmon and Shetland mussels shipped fresh from Aberdeen make for incredibly robust seafood dishes. Naturally, premium Italian ingredients are a part of the kitchen’s repertoire, and Italian cuisine aficionados from across the Glasgow region come here to take home with them deil items like the famed Guidi’s Salad Dressing and comprehensive library of wines.
Two-course lunches and gluten-free options are part what sets Trattoria Guidi’s offering apart from other Italian restaurants in the vicinity of Airdrie and Coatbridge, east of Glasgow proper. That said, the main a la carte menu offers a panoramic view of Guidi’s exemplary Italian offering, dotted with old favourites chef’s specialties, and less-travelled dishes drawn from regional Italian cuisines. Situated on the cusp of Airdrie and Coatbridge, and within easy walk of coatdyke station, Trattoria Guidi is a popular choice among those looking to be pampered with a proper Italian feast – this restaurant, bar, and pizzeria can comfortably accommodate 250 guests, making it ideal for large celebrations like wedding receptions, anniversaries, or those special milestone birthday parties.
First time customer and must say we thoroughly enjoyed our meal, staff were very pleasant and helpful and food was delicious, not over priced will definitely be back for more, thank you.
Have been coming here for as long as I can remember and the service is always first class and the food is always fantastic. I would highly recommend Trattoria Guidi for any occasion but who needs an excuse when the food is so good :)
Great place & food, go at least once a Month, best Italian in the area, when busy parking can be a problem but has never hindered us.
This is always a great venue for a night out, the food is good and the staff are always helpful. Will be back again soon.
Visited early Saturday evening as a family of 4. We were seated quickly and drinks order/food order taken promptly. Kids were impatient waiting for their main courses. However I think the time between courses was more than reasonable for a busy Saturday night. The food was excellent and everyone was delighted with their choices. Sweets were fab! The total bill was very reasonable although we did only have soft drinks. I haven't been for a long time despite being a regular attender for many, many years in the past. Overall we were delighted with our meal at Guidis and will be returning at the end of the month for a birthday celebration. I think we have rediscovered a really lovely place to eat in our local area.
First time in Guidi's for a number of tears, booked a table online, car park was packed but finally found a spot, entered restaurant and gave my name, shown straight to our table and asked us for drinks order and gave us the menus, drinks arrived within a couple of minutes, we were given about 5 minutes with menu then were asked if we where ready to order. All the food arrived fairly quickly and both starters and main courses were very good, both in terms of portions and taste, all felt as if they had been cooked fresh as we ordered them and not re-heats. Well done Guidi's great service and food in a nice restaurant.
Wasn't overly busy when we arrived but filled up quickly. We were shown to our seats right away and had a drink whilst we perused the menu. Our food arrived in a reasonable time and was hot and fresh. There was a wait between courses but it wasn't unduly long. Other than it being a bit pricey we had no complaints. Food was delicious and staff were pleasant and polite. Would certainly recommend others try Guidi's but unless you were going for the set evening menu at 2 courses for £9.95, I would keep it for a special occasion.
Very helpful at the start of visit, opened a side door to allow my disabled aunt to easily access style restaurant. We're understanding about offering choice of tables but one was a booth which wasn't suitable and the other was in the middle of a corridor where all the staff used to pick up the meals and take yo tables. Very noisy. Starters were messed up as one of the orders didn't come and the. Once everyone had eaten they tried to deliver the late starter on two separate occasion - both times we returned it as the rest of the table had finished. Main course was lovely, food excellent and arrived on time. Dessert was ordered, nothing fancy just ice cream, had to ask on two occasions where it was also included my husband having to visit the ice cream bar area and ask - 45 mins later dessert arrived. I would have cancelled but my family were visiting and I knew my uncle was keen for a dessert. Guidis recognised they had delivered very poor service and we were not charged for the dessert but by then they experience was ruined. Will not go back.
We went to Guidi's for my father in law's 80th birthday. He has very limited mobility and the staff were absolutely fantastic. Changed our table to accommodate him despite being extremely busy, were very attentive, provided a wheelchair and escorted my father in law to the car at the end of a lovely meal and visit. Well done team Guidi - very helpful indeed...the food was excellent too!
Food delicious and the service very very good. Surprised that it was so large and yet the atmosphere was good and no large gaps in between courses. Only set back was the price of drinks £2:25 for a Coke was a bit steep when it wasn't even a can or bottle. Will definitely be back.
