Service was amazing but the food was very average. Very reasonably prices and nice atmosphere. Won't be on my rotation next time around.

We had heard rave reviews from some friends and wanted some authentic Italian for our evening meal. There were 3 in our party. Our grandson got the small pizza which he loved. My wife got alfredo which she said was OK. I got the special of the night which was a combo beef and pork dish that ran over $20.... More

Looked to be quite a popular place. It was small but a nice, rustic atmosphere. Waitress forgot about our drinks and service was slow overall. Meals are supposed to include ice cream but when they give you the choice of Raspberry sherbet or Spumoni, they tell you the Spumoni will be an additional $1 extra per person. Just seemed kind...

I'll start with the bad since I'm so mad about the way we were treated. Please read on though because there is some good too. We came in last night to celebrate my dad's birthday. He has metastatic cancer so this may well be the last birthday we celebrate with him. We wanted to make this weekend very special for... More

We prefer to try new places each visit but returned again based on last wonderful experience. Pam provided excellent service again! Food was great and the value is excellent. Seems to be always busy!

This has always been my favorite restaurant to go to up in Glenwood Springs. Every time I go up to Glenwood, I have to come here

Nothing special. Menu states "with our noodles". Kind of misleading made me think yummy homemade noodles. They are nothing special very sure they are boxed noodles. I can't believe this is the only Italian in Glenwood and that's the best they have. Bread was dry and flavorless. There was nothing good here. Kids didn't even like it and they love... More

The restraint doesn't open until 5:00 and immediately fills up. Reservations are not accepted, but the food was excellent, the wine reasonable, and the service excellent..if I return to Glemwood Springs this will be a repeat. Expect a wait

We used trip advisor to find this hotel. When you use a mapping service it will take you to the front door but you need to park in the parking lot behind it. Which is no big deal. The restaurant is down stairs and as soon as you go to the basement of this old building you just arrive to... More

This place is certainty worth the wait, great ambience, great food and great service. Go early or expect to wait. There are good shops to explore while you wait.
