The family was in the mood for Italian food and the Underground hit the spot. My kids split a fettuccine alfredo and my wife and I each tried the nightly special. Hers was salmon fettuccine and mine was a pesto ravioli; both were cooked perfectly and delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. Would definitely visit again next time in town.

We have dined here several times while vacationing and returned after 3 years. It is still great Italian food. With the construction it a little hard to get to. It is downstairs in a very old brick building. They open for dinner at 5pm. It was not busy but the owner said summers are very busy so be prepared to... More

Had a wonderful experience at the Underground Italian Restaurant. Close to the I 70 exchange just as you enter mainstreet over the bridge. Sicilian chef makes wonderful fare.

Cute little restaurant in the basement of a building thus the underground in the name. Is very hidden from view due to all the bridge construction barriers but parking was easy behind the building. We were greeted promptly and received our table when they estimated. Staff are very friendly and good. The menu is limited and very rich in sausage... More

This was a jewel we happened upon. You'll love the homemade bread and dinners. The portions are large so come hungry.

I love this place! It's charming and cozy, literally located underneath the hustle and bustle of main street. We had a hard time deciding on what to order - I was choosing between just a big bowl of spaghetti with meat sauce and the lasagna (I'm currently undergoing my own taste-test of lasagna). It was a no brainer since their... More

It was be slightly difficult to get to the restaurant, however it will be worth the trip. It is only open for dinner so make plans accordingly. The spaghetti with meatballs is always a hit. The lasagna came with spaghetti and both were delicious. The pizza is by far the best pizza I have ever tasted. A wonderful surprise!

This restaurant is a real gem for Italian food in Glenwood. The bread is good, decent appetizers, and the pizza, pasta, etc is delicious.

Generally speaking, an Italian restaurant in a western, tourist destination is an invitation for disaster. We were SO pleased and surprised with The Italian Underground, they had to kick us out as closing time approached. Prices are resaonable and the waite staff were all super friendly and professional. My wife is glten free and she was so happy that they... More

We were traveling on our way home from a road trip vacation and happened upon the Italian Underground. A very tasty and enjoyable meal. Service was good. If traveling through Glenwood Springs again I definitely would stop in again for a meal.
