(May 20, 1999) -- Forget what Dorothy said while clicking her heels. There is some place like home.

Dining at Guido's Pasta Villa in Irondequoit, says Perinton resident Mark Colgan, is like enjoying a ''good home-cooked meal.''

Whenever he's there, Colgan, a certified financial planner, orders Chicken Parmigiana ($9.95): ''It's very fresh (and) the sauce is outstanding.''

Owner Jesse Guido uses fresh chicken breasts breaded with crumbs from homemade loaves. After the chicken breasts are deep-fried in oil, they're covered in mozzarella cheese and sauce made from his mother's recipe, and served with pasta.

Although Guido believes that his establishment serves first-rate entrees, ''the food is secondary,'' he says.

It's the warm and friendly atmosphere he hopes will keep customers coming back.
