We had the Italian combination plates and had enough food for 3 dinners. Thank goodness for doggy bags. It was all very good, especially the lasagna. The wine selection was nice too. I would recommend for good basic Italian fare.

The chicken cacciatore was disappointing. Very little flavor. their pizza was just 'Okay". One dish that was very goo was a "special". It was salmon and fettucine with a nice cream sauce. The house salads were very simple and nothing to remember.

We were very hungry for Italian food and the hotel manager recommended Italian Underground. Our expectations were too high. Everything I wanted had mushrooms - which I can't eat because of an allergy. When asking the waitress for suggestions she rattled off about 3 items as quickly as she could. She acted as if it was an imposition for me... More

Whenever the locals want to go out for Italian food, they visit the Italian Underground. We know to get there early, or to plan for a worthwhile wait. The food and atmosphere is there to experience as the evenings entertainment. Come for conversation and casual dining to the Italian Underground.

As other posters have shared, be prepared for a 45 minute wait. That said, the hostess and wait staff were really on top of things. After a table opened up there was no more than a 2 to 3 minute wait before the next customers were seated. Really outstanding service. We found the food to be average, not bad just... More

My sister and I ate at Italian Underground for dinner on August 15th. We were looking for pizza and followed our noses to IU. It smelled amazing. There was a 45 minute wait when we got on the list, however it was reduced to 10 when all of the folks above us were out walking when a table opened up... More

I had read very good reviews for this restaurant so my expectations were probably too high. While I thought the food was ok, I didn't think it was great by any stretch. The salad consisted of lettuce which was fairly old. None of the Italian dishes had the homemade noodles. The value, however, for a family was good as salad... More

Party of 4 on a busy Friday night. Service was friendly and outgoing, despite the crush of activity. The food was very affordable and delicious. Escargot in the Rocky mountains? And done to perfection. Would definitely make a point to return.

The service here was very good, and the food was good. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the place; however, the food was somewhat expensive. Overall though, we enjoyed it here.
