Small restaurant means wait times can be lengthy in early evenings but the wait is worth it. Can get noisy too. All of the classic italian dishes are great but I look forward to their always changing specials

We walked into this Italian restaurant on a Sunday evening (actually Easter Sunday) with an open mind of trying some good Italian after a long day at the Hot Springs. We were not disappointed. My wife had the Fettuccini with Shrimp and I had the Beefsteak Ravioli in a pesto sauce, which was the special. Simply amazing!!! The staff was... More

This was the worst we've ever been treated while eating out. There was a hair in the pasta and after the waitress didn't take it off our bill, the owner of the restaurant came over and blatantly accused us of the hair being ours. After rudely taking care of the situation, our waitress never came back to the table to... More

Food is outstanding. Staff appear to be family. Atmosphere is fun. If you go towards closing you will see all the staff sit down together to enjoy meal.

My wife and I have been going to the Italian Underground for years after accidentally finding it many years ago. It is in an unusual location, under ground as the name implies and is well worth the wait you may find at the busy times. The staff is attentive, food is great and the atmosphere is what keeps us coming... More

This is a cool little spot to go while visiting Glenwood. During our last visit, we waited to be seated for about an hour and a half. If you're willing to wait awhile, it is a cool experience. The restaurant is "underground" and offers some neat ambiance. My husband and I had the cheese platter as an appetizer and it... More

Worth stopping here. The food is good, not the best I've ever had but good nonetheless. The service was also good. The downside is it's a small place so seating goes fast. It seams seating is available about every hour give or take. The portions are very generous.

This is our second time there and it does not disappoint. The food is excellent, the wait staff attentive (but a little rushed), and the atmosphere is fine. We will return. Very good food for very good value.
