When my boyfriend and I stayed in Glenwood, we weren't sure where to go to eat. We ended up searching on our phones for some local restaurants and decided upon Italian Underground. The atmosphere was very romantic and, mind you,

I hear this place is good. We ate there years ago. They are overcrowded, and so they don't give a hoot about customers. No reservations, but you can't even call ahead if your walking down 20 minutes from a hotel. Quoted:

Traditional , real American Italian food. In a word "YUM" ! Appreciated the opportunity to get smaller portions. But, I made up the calories eating wonderful homemade bread. Pleasant efficient wait staff. The wine was pretty good too.

Fabulous Italian food at a low cost. Homemade pastas, pizza and more. Meal comes with salad and sorbet that was a perfect ending to our meal. Offers smaller portions too of most entrees! Fabulous place, will definitely return and recommend!

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.

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.
