I've enjoyed good meals here since the 1980's. Good basic Italian food, family owned. Nothing too fancy, but not too pricy either. You do have to go down a flight of stairs to get

I visited this incredibly charming restaurant with 9 other people on a weeknight, and we all ordered something different. Everyone was raving about their food, the unique Italian sauce choices, the extensive wine menu, friendly & efficient service, and the unique warm ambience of this lovely establishment. Each entree includes, salad, bread, pasta and an ice cream dessert.

Food was average, was better when they first opened. Our server did not tell us the specials and if she would have we would have ordered different.

In a mountain town this little Italian restaurant wowed me! I am from NY where Italian food is a staple and this by far was fabulous!!! A must when you are in town.

Delicious pasta and fresh bread. Charming atmosphere. Supper includes salad, bread, pasta and ice cream for dessert. You may request smaller portions on some of the pasta dishes.

With my three teenagers and a friend of theirs in tow on a blustery night, we chose the Italian Underground as an easy walk from our Hotel Colorado. What a pleasant surprise it was. With hardly a table to spare, the warm basement space was filled with families, couples, hipsters and international travelers who made it rather a party, thanks... More

The best thing this restaurant has going for it is the atmosphere. It is located in a cute underground spot with exposed stone/brick on the walls. The food was mediocre. Server was friendly but not quick. Excellent italian food is hard to find and I did not find it here.

The food is really amazing. The restaurant is such a family affair that it spills into the nice atmosphere! The owners take pride on what they serve. The pasta comes from Italy, therefore, NO GMOs! The staff is courteous and the service is great. After your meal, make your way to the bar and talk with the Grappa Master, Ashton... More

I've dined here on three occasions each time sitting at the small bar, taking in a quiet meal with a glass of wine. I'm pretty particular with italian, in that I love a good lasagna. A well made lasagna will make me a life long fan of any italian restaurant, and The Italian Underground hits that mark for me. The... More

Very deceiving, looks the part of an authentic cozy itallian resturaunt with friendly staff, however the food was awful!!! The carrots in my salad were not even peeled, the spaghetti was undercooked, and the cannoli finally did both my wife and I in sending us straight back to our hotel having to take turns vomiting. To sum it up the... More
