We went to the Italian Underground and the wait was long at 7:00. We decided to go to the Hot Springs and return at 9:00. They took our name and the 'reservation.' We went to the Springs, and then returned, and moved to the front of the line. I ordered the Spinach Lasagna, and they prepared a new batch for... More

The restaurant itself is cool, but the restaurant operation is just average in my opinion. While the food is pretty good, the menu is very limited. And it's hard to call a place a "good italian restaurant" if they don't even have fresh grated parmesan. Not disappointed, but also not overly impressed.

Not sure what the big deal is here. Happiest person there was the water girl - and she did a great job with a friendly attitude. Waiter, not so much. Food? Spaghetti with sauces, certainly nothing special.

The food was great and the Italian sour is a must have. The service was ok. Great atmosphere! This wasn't our first time there and we will be going back!

The service at the Italian Underground was very good. The food was average in our opinion. The atmosphere is nice and the lemon or raspberry sorbet at the end of the meal was the best part of the meal.

I love Italian food, and so we decided to go to The Italian Underground for dinner one night. What other reviewers have been saying about the wait here is absolutely true. The restaurant opens at 5:00 pm, we arrived at 5:15 pm and there was already a one hour wait!!! But understand this a very small place with not too... More

We dined here on a night when there wasn't a wait but it was still busy. We had the Caprese and bruschetta both of which were great. For our main entrees we had the spaghetti arabiatta, fettucini alfredo, and a sampler platter. All was very fresh and tasted great. We finished with some raspberry and lemon sorbet. The service was... More

Food was a little bit bland needed salt. Service was good and place was extremely busy just not worth the money.

What a find. It gets no better than this anywhere if you're seeking a local, friendly, welcoming atmosphere, accompanied by first rate Italian cuisine. All serve4d up by a proprietor who's been in this location for 34 years. Recommended by a local, Underground Italian is a little pies of perfection.

We go there every time we visit Glenwood Springs. Very crowded. Fair prices, good reliable food. And the bread is to die for. I wish that they would offer vanilla ice cream and spumoni for desert. Their meat sauce is just plain good. The chicken is very good. There is always a wait, and you will find out why. I... More
