Loved the atmosphere - reminded me of a jazz club from the 50's - without the music. We were told there would be a 20 minute wait only to be seated within 5 minutes - very pleasant surprise. Food was fabulous - large portions - took my leftover lasagna for mid-morning snack the next day on our road trip. Would... More

Lots of kids and families, but the food and ambiance (except the noise) was good enough for a couple's date night as well. Very fast service.

We did have to wait a while to get in but we did go right at dinner time. It was so worth the wait, real authentic Italian food. Would go here again

After our evening shift of being Santa at Adventureland Park, we decided to go eat in costume at this great little hidden away Italian Restaurant, I had simple spaghetti and meatballs, the wife had Salmon Alfredo Fettucini, both were excellant. What a quiet little nook of a restaurant and bar. We had a great time, gave everyone a chance for... More

The food is great. My daughter loves to fettucine. We go to Glenwood about 3 times a year and she insists we eat dinner here at least once. The downfall is that they do not take reservations, are always packed, do not have a bar where you can wait and you have to stand up the stairs our outside while... More

We loved this little place. It is in the basement of a building on the main street in Glenwood Springs, and it was a short walk from Hotel Denver, so great location. It would be a little challenge for anyone who has trouble with steps - I didn't see and elevator and suspect it pre-dates ADA. It is a very... More

Beautiful and cozy restaurant located in the basement "underground" of a building on Grand Ave. The staff was friendly and attentive and the food was amazing. I had their homemade spaghetti with meat sauce. Their portions are very generous. Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area! :)

This restaurant was recommended by a friend, and we stopped in on a recent trip to Glenwood. Had heard that it can get really crowded, but we went in late (after 8 p.m.) and on a weekday. Mary and I split an anti-pasta platter and some bruschetta. We wanted just to eat light a light snack, but it turned out... More
