“Loved It”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

We ate here for dinner one night while in Glenwood Springs on vacation. The food was very good - lots of pasta options. The spaghetti was wonderful, as was the lasagna. It was a little on the pricier side for a glass of wine, but they do serve complimentary bread with the meal. The atmosphere is awesome, being that it is in the basement of the building with bricks walls and low ceilings. It seemed to be a very popular place and we did have to wait about 20min for a table (though about 15min were spend sitting in 2 of the 4 stools at the bar). We really enjoyed it, and will return next time we are in Glenwood Springs.

“Great service and authentic food”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

We ate here on a Friday night and didn't have a wait since we agreed to sit at one end of a 6 person table with another couple at the other end. We were fine with the arrangement and glad they offered this set up to avoid a 30 min wait. Fast service and food was excellent. We had the combo plate and spaghetti and both were good. The tiramisu dessert was amazing. Loved the overall atmosphere of the restaurant and the coziness although it was loud at times. All of the waitstaff worked together to ensure excellent service and they were all very polite. We will definitely come back on our next visit to glenwood.

“Good food”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Good food and great value for Glenwood. Go early before they open as a line develops once they open and it is a very small rest. Good for children or couples with good choices of wine and beer.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

We went last night for our son's 21st birthday and we were not disappointed! From the moment we walked down the stairs, we were made to feel at home. From the gentleman who seated us to Peggy, our excellent waitress, the evening was superb. The food was delicious and the portions are just the right size. The atmosphere is so comfortable and homey. As our daughter noted, it's got the right amount of noise level. Not so loud you can't hear each other but not so hushed you feel awkward having a conversation. You know what I really loved? There wasn't a television in sight! FINALLY, a restaurant that gets it! Thank you Peggy for making our sons special night so memorable! We appreciate you!

“Pizza was terrible.”
Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Pizza crust had the consistency of cardboard. Very disappointed after reading the reviews. I may go back, but won't order the pizza ever again.
