Worth stopping here. The food is good, not the best I've ever had but good nonetheless. The service was also good. The downside is it's a small place so seating goes fast. It seams seating is available about every hour give or take. The portions are very generous.

This is our second time there and it does not disappoint. The food is excellent, the wait staff attentive (but a little rushed), and the atmosphere is fine. We will return. Very good food for very good value.

Had the sampler platter and loved everything. It's out of the way but worth finding. If you like authentic Italian food. Service was great and even tho it is located in a basement it has great atmosphere.

We just went as a family this past weekend. Our waitress Courtney was so lovely and the food was fantastic! I had read other reviews about this place and never went, well we went and was floored at how amazing the food was! The Chicken Parm was fantastic! It was a great family meal and so memorable! Thank you!

I have taken my family, friends to The Italian Underground over the years and every time they come back to Glenwood Springs this is where they want to eat out... That says it all.

The FOOD IS wonderful. This place has the best home made italian food I have ever had. We were there on a Sunday night about 6:30 and they were starting to get really busy. If you're going to there I would suggest getting there early. They are only open from 5pm til 10pm. If you have to wait, the food... More

We just ate here and it was excellent. Service was great! We both had the flank steak and tomato basil sauce and it was divine. We also had the Itallion Stallion and the Italian Sour for cocktails and highly recommend both.

This restaurant has a true Italian feel - a wine cellar atmosphere, checked cloths and very friendly, efficient staff. The wait proves this is the place to be if you love Italian food. A medium priced menu & child friendly. Delicious!!

I've been coming to this restaurant for 30+ years. It's nearly always packed, and a 45 minute wait is common. Get there early to avoid the wait. I still enjoy it when I'm in Glenwood. It's like a comfortable old pair of slippers...nothing outstanding, but always decent and consistent. Cozy environment (if you don't mind being underground), but can become... More
