8 of us stopped in at Rino' s while vacationing in Trinidad. A couple of our ladies had been to Rino's before and highly recommended it. Most of us had Italian food and it was very good. I especially liked my Pasta with Shrimp and Chipotle Sauce. And the Spaghetti with Meatballs earned high ratings as did the Pasta Alfredo.... More

We've eaten at Rino's twice. The restaurant features local teens who sing Karaoke style during the evening. It was charming at first, then the music got too loud. The food is good, not exceptional, but good portions.

Rino's is an exceptional restaurant hidden away in the town of Trinidad. The food is great, the atmosphere is super and the singing by the owner and the staff makes your whole experience special. Seven of us drove over from Cimarron just to have dinner here. The owner Frank and his staff are all very personable and take extra time... More

We were staying in Trinidad for one night and were looking for a place to have dinner. We happened upon Rino's while looking around Trinidad. The restaurant is housed in what used to be a church and has lots of character. We were pleased by the quality of the service. Our waitress was polite and attentive and very sweet. We... More

While we were waiting for our food some music came on and the whole... More

We used Trip Advisor to find a decent restaurant within walking distance of our Motel (Trails End) - we ended up as a group of 7 celebrating my Wife's Birthday They welcomed us without a booking, the atmosphere was fabulous with talented wait staff taking turns to sing to diners, as well as serve the best meals we've had since...

At first we were hesitant to go, as prior reviews mentioned the staff singing, and we wanted a more quiet evening after the crazy crowds at Garden of the Gods earlier in the day. But we opted to give it a try and sure were glad that we did. We both chose the chicken piccata and absolutely loved it! The... More

Great food is to be had at Rino's Italian (pronounced "reenose" not like the animal) but, what makes the place great are the owner, family, and wait staff who are all friendly and sing to you throughout your meal!

We really enjoyed the atmosphere, they have live entertainment which was an unexpected surprise. However the prices for Trinidad we're out of line way too high unfortunately most places there are overpriced and and it's killing their economy we love Trinidad and this place is worth eating at but bring your checkbook

Bella! This restaurant has it all: historic building with a story, great ambiance, amazingly attentive wait staff and the food is off the hook! Go visit this gem of an italian/steak house whenever you can. The owner is on site, hugely in the experience with opera singing every 30 mins. or so. His family/staff also joins in with some singing,... More
