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.
i booked for my dad, his business parter and a client. My dad was the only one who had been before and the other 2 parties said they wouls definitely be back. their comments were great portion sizes and tasty food with fantastic service.
Excellent service from the waiter who was cheery and always had a smile on his face. Food was excellent and overall a great experience. Would recommend 10/10
We had amazing experience as always. The food was great and really good value for money, service was fantastic and our waiter John couldn't do enough for us. We will definitely be back again.
we went on a Tuesday night for our 19th Wedding Anniversary, we were surprised to see how busy the restaurant was & we're glad we had booked. The staff from the minute we walked through the door were very friendly. The food could not be faulted, it was amazing!
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.
Restaurant was lovely, food was nice and price was great! However they didn't have a record of our reservation (although I had proof of email). This wasn't a problem as they were able to seat us but makes me unsure if I would book through this site again as experience may have been affected if the restaurant was even busier than it was.
Food was lovely but service let it down. We arrived 10mins early and were seated straight away but after that the service was below average. We had friends who arrived after us and they seemed to have better service and were away well before us. We were in the restaurant for over 2hrs, which when you have a child with you isn't that good. We have been here before and had really good service but not tonight.
This was our third visit to Guidi's and we were not disappointed. The food has always been very tasty, well presented and of good value. The two course evening deal costs £9.95. This restaurant is very busy which results in a somewhat noisy atmosphere which may or may not appeal.
The only comment I have is about the Carbonara. I have had it and it was a lot dryer than the type you serve. It was lovely, but it would be nice to have a choice of dry or saucy. Thanks, and again the evening was extremely nice and our waitress was especially good and deserves my compliment.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was quickly served to our large table. From 2 years old to 80 years old everybody enjoyed their meals. Staff were great and ensured my gran had a very special 80th birthday. Prices very reasonable. Food tastes fresh too. Would definitely recommend.
We were seated quickly but service was very poor thereafter . We waited 15 mins before first waiter asked for our drinks order, and a further half hour before our starters arrived . My husbands first then mine. He was almost finished his before I could even start mine ( soup) as they didn't give me a spoon and it was almost impossible to get the attention of anyone to bring one . I had to leave my seat and go find someone to attend . Food was lovely but let down by the service
Great ambiance in the restaurant. We ate from the set evening menu which has a great choice at a great price. I have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions, both at lunchtime and in the evening, and it never disappoints. I would thoroughly recommend.
Great food, atmosphere and value! Friendly and accomodating service. Dimmed lights and put on happy birthday music when bringing out special birthday cake we had brought earlier and hid it in kitchen until we were ready for it after meal - very smoothly done and no fuss!
Our visit to Guidi's was fantastic, great service and fantastic food. The early evening menu has a great choice of starters and main meals for a very reasonable price. A must visit restaurant with a pleasurable experience for locals or anyone willing to travel to Airdrie.
Regular visitor at this restaurant and as always the food was outstanding, a testament to the kitchen staff. However the rating is middle of the road due to a desperately poor waiting staff experience. My wife and I sat for 40 mins without being offered a dessert menu while the Italian waiter chatted to his friends 10 feet away from us. When I finally managed to get someone's attention, I ordered a cappuccino... Which never arrived. If the service equalled the quality of the food it would have been top marks... Shame.
Been coming to Guidi's for over three years now and As usual, the food was excellent, however on this occasion the service was very poor. Service has never been a strong point, especially at busy times, however, our Server (Paolo) was very ill mannered and unfriendly. Not a great advert for Guidi's, despite him being one of the restaurants apparently genuine Italian Waiters. As a result, we will now think twice before booking again as his attitude put a spoiler on our Anniversary celebration. Disappointed!
When we arrived we were shown to our seats straight away, the waitress promptly took our drinks order, returned with drinks and took our meal order, meal came quickly and was delicious we then asked for the bill, paid and left, all in all it was a very pleasant experience.
Good fab but main courses were only a bit bigger than starter portions. Normally I can't finish my main course but ate it all and could have ate it again. My friends said the same. Been coming to Guidis for over 15 years and will think twice about returning. Disappointed.
A bit of a wait for starters. Waited a while to get a second drink even though the waitress was continuely walking up and down and I sat my empty glass at the edge of the table. Food was ok but wouldn't rush to go back. Prawn bruschetta to start but the prawns were really cold.. wasn't what I was expecting
We had a lovely time in this restaurant. We numbered five which included a 3 year old and toddler. The staff were very attentive and couldn't have done more and the food was brilliant over all. We'll be back! Paul
It was a very busy night and I found it to be very noisy and was not as relaxing as I would have liked. The menu however was good with a wide range of meals. My partner had the fillet steak and said it the best he had tasted. Service was good and the staff were very pleasant and efficient.
Great food as always only downside was having to constantly ask for things like cutlery, pepper & Parmesan etc. Also had to ask where our sides where a few times before we got them. Drinks sat empty as well for a while. Been coming to Guidis for years and will continue to do so as the food never disappoints.
Guidis is a nice restaurant, the food was nice enough, chips were a bit hard, waiter was lovely. Restaurant was quite noisy, due to birthday party and being seated close by. The seats are extremely uncomfortable and dig into the thighs, I had to sit at an angle all evening, impossible to get comfortable. Needs more comfortable seating or cushions on the seats. Probably will avoid going back here and choose restaurant that has comfortable seating.
Great food, fantastic service - will be back! Great value for the whole meal. Food came out piping hot and with just the right interval between starters & mains. The chocolate fudge cake is a must try!
On arrival we noticed that the restaurant was very busy. Got our table, drinks & starters without any problem. Had quite await between starter & main course, but put this down to the restaurant being busy. After the main course we asked to see the desert menu, sat for 10 mins, no desert menu came, so got up & asked for the bill & left. Meal was good, but service could be alot better.
delicious food, never had a bad experience. service is great, only down side is the option of booking not always being available- take away is an option but who wants to wash dishes?! well worth the money.
Food was good and staff were friendly but on special requirements stated that 5th person was a 2year old and would require a high chair and we were seated at a booth which could not take a high chair so rather than wait we took booth and had to keep a careful eye on son
The service was very slow and the waiting staff were not very attentive. I had to go and ask someone for a dessert menu and again when I wanted to order dessert, we also were not once asked if we wanted a second drink. When the food arrived it was ok but nothing special. We felt that 2 hours in a restaurant for a basic lunch and one drink was just too long.
Serviced quick and main came out within half a hour of ordering. Again plates taken away quickly and we were left for over 40 mins waiting to see if anyone would ask us for dessert menu or more drinks. Tried a few times to get someone attention without fail😞 Paid the bill and left. Would have been nice to stay but they were to busy trying to get more bums on seats
We absolutely loved our time here. The food was fantastic as well as the friendly warming service we received. We would definitely rate this as the finest Italian restaurant we have ever set foot in 👍
Excellent great quality Italian food at a very affordable price, great variety in the menu, terrific quick service. Will definitely be going back as whenever I have been before it had been a great meal
perfect restaurant with decent parking and nice workers who are always smiley. me and my partner always come to this restaurant as it has a good set price menu for lunch and pre theatre also.
Lovely food and lots of it. Staff very helpful and attentive. Can be a bit noisy as very popular restaurant and very busy. We were sitting close to the door and it was a little chilly but did not spoil our night
Very extensive selection of food available. I really enjoy starters but I find that A main course is normally too much food after a starter. I really liked that they had half pasta portions available for mains. Delicious dishes and helpful staff.
We had an excellent family meal at Guidi's, Airdrie. Would certainly recommend it. The atmosphere was jolly and there was a buzz about the place that lifted one's spirits on a cold November night.
Meal was lovely and prices very reasonable. Staff very friendly and service was really quick. Also had to change time of my booking as i was running late and this was done no problem.
Quick show to the table and the usual prompt service of food and drinks. Staff were very friendly and helpful on the menu. Another great experience of food and good surroundings, well done !!
Really good food and excellent service, made our family celebration a brilliant evening out .We would definitely trecommend it. And will return again soon.The portions are very generous and really good value .
Been going here for the last 23years, can't say I've ever been disappointed anytime we've been. Pays to book though, can't believe how busy it was on a Tuesday night! Quality!
A wonderful meal and great atmosphere. Polite courteous staff. Excellent menu choice and drinks selection. Given time between courses. Never rushed despite being last to leave restaurant! Will be back soon.
1st time experience certainly will come again service and food was 10 out or 10 .staff were very attentive and polite. Lunch menu was excellent value and lots of choice xx
Great food and great service. We went on Mothers Day and the restaurant was very busy but there were plenty of staff to cope. We will be back in the future.
A very family friendly restaurant with magnificent food. We enjoy going here for special occasions and we never leave without a few bottles of they're magnificent salad dressing to take home.
We always enjoy a visit to Guidi's. The food is consistantly excellent and promptly served by the attentive staff. We find the atmosphere lively and convivial, though some might say noisy.
Surroundings were lovely meal tasteful and the service was first clas (the waitress was polish i think ) and nothing was too much trouble for her. 10 out of 10 .
Easy to reserve a booking .Staff are efficient , courteous and friendly .Food is delicious and great value for money , especially with the offers .I would highly recommend this venue.
