The Italian Underground is just that - underground. The restaurant is right below the bridge that crosses the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs, CO. Brick walls, uneven floors and red checkered tablecloths make this feel very European. Food is good. Try it!

This underground Italian restaurant had character, great food with lots included. Be sure to clarify with your waiter was coming otherwise you'll spend too much on extras! Our waiter was slow and not very helpful but it didn't detour from the overall experience and great food!

We come here every trip. It is always super yummy. They open at 5 but you need to be in line by 430 if you want an early dinner.

Each time that we visit Glenwood Springs, we have to have dinner at the Italian Underground. We know for a fact that the sausage is homemade - and that the restaurant is a favorite for locals who have even going there for years. The food is fabulous - whether you choose the Roasted Chicken, pizza, Shrimp Fettucine or the Sampler... More

Recently was in Glenwood Springs looking for an Italian restaurant for dinner. We came across the Italian Underground. As the name implies, the restaurant is one floor below ground. When you enter the restaurant, you get that "Mom and Pop" Italian restaurant feel. All the tables have red and white tablecloths. All the people are casually dressed and enjoying themselves....

Atmosphere was great. The service was fast, yet the food underwhelming. The wine tasted as if it were uncorked for too long. I ordered the spaghetti with meat sauce--too spicy and too much oregano. Homemade bread was dry. My daughter enjoyed the alfredo.

Good Italian, no matter where you are from. Prices are nice. The wait is the only issue so get there early enough or you'll be hanging our on the stairs for an hour or more. Still, that being said, it is worth the wait.

We spent the weekend (thru Sunday night) in Glenwood - try and hit the "favorite" eatery's either during the day or Sunday night. LOVED the food at the Italian Underground - great value for the money. We did not have a wait for a table when we arrived at 5pm

I was in the Glenwood area with my nephews and we decided to come here. We sure were happy we did. Great atmosphere, 2 steps above average food and an owner who is friendly with the patrons. All 3 of us had a different menu item and all were completely satisfied. This would be a nice place to entertain a... More
