“Your gona wait... but its worth it!!”
Reviewed January 21, 2010

Had been told that this is another awesome place to eat and read the reviews too.
we knew we were going to have to wait and we did. (about 20 minutes).
It is downstairs and no windows but you dont need them anyway. Lots of historic pictures of Glenwood and other things to look for if your that bored. I had the combination plate (and couldnt finish it.. and I eat alot)Veryu good food. They served fresh/warm bread (with thawed butter), fresh salad (didnt have lots of frills) but crispy and good dressing. Waitors were always there when needed.

“Our Fave, but get in line by 5:30”
Reviewed January 8, 2010

There is a reason why this is the only restaurant in Glenwood Springs where people line up before 6pm. The food is excellent and priced fairly. The ambiance is interesting and fits the typical Italian experience. It is a loud basement, and excellent for families. I wouldn't take a date to this place, it can be a little crazy. You are there for the food.

“Still Good!”
Reviewed December 30, 2009

We ate there two nights ago. We've been eating at the Italian Underground a few times a year for ten years or more, but recent reviews have left me wondering if things have declined in the past year. Fortunately, the service, atmosphere, and food are still great.
We had a party of four and had to wait about ten minutes for a table. We all had a drink at the bar and then were quickly seated at a nice table. The hostess and waitress were prompt and efficient. We had the antipasta and then each had a good Italian meal with a nice bottle of verdicchio.
The Italian Underground is a very casual, friendly, neighborhood type of restaurant where the owners try to accommodate their customers. We were afraid of some slippage based on other reviewers but were pleased that everything was still great.
