Wonderful Italian food with a hint of southwest. Most of the waiters sing a solo with recorded music at various times during the evening and they are really really good!!

Yeah dubba do

We live in Fort Worth Tx.travel to Montana about 3 times a year , Rino's is a must stop , best Italian food I've ever eaten. The singing waiters is a very nice touch. Between Texas & Montana (1600 miles) this is the best , fair price too !

We had a wonderful Valentines celebration here. Decided to save the pasta for another visit and we each had a very well prepared steak. The tiramisu is definitely world class. The singing staff just made a great evening even better.

What a find! On top of a fabulous meal with great steaks and inviting atmosphere, almost all of the wait staff sing! We were SO pleasantly surprised with the variety of musical styles and talent in this small town. Service was excellent, too. I was in the mood for whiskey which I haven't had in years. Waiter suggested an Old... More

We have eaten at Rino's several times. Just love the entertainment--singing waiters who sing all types of music from Elvis to Classical! It seems they entertain between 7 pm and 9 pm. A reservation is probably a good idea. Food is good and hearing them sing is especially fun!

Trinidad definitely experienced it's golden years some time ago and the amount of vacant storefronts is a bit depressing. However, this restaurant serves up quality food and shows some beauty in a town that needs it. The new upstairs bar was decently stocked and there were 2 beers on tap. The building itself was clean and well kept while the... More

Food was Absolutely Delicious! The staff sang through dinner with angelic voices. There were two younger females working that were so sweet and professional-they add so much to 'Family Owned and Operated'. Rino's is a treasure to Trinidad Colorado.

The wife and I had a Saturday dinner that was wonderful. The food was excellent, the service was excellent, the singing by the waiter and waitress was great fun and Frank was totally hospitable. Thank you! We highly recommend and will be back!

Our waitress was wonderful. We did hear some singing and it was enjoyable. I had a salad that was okay. My husbands steak was 50 % fat .

What a surprise to find such a wonderful dinner in the little town of Trinidad. We saw Rino's sign on their truck while traveling from Nebraska. We found the wait staff and the kitchen staff friendly and helpful as we need to enter through their very clean kitchen. Trinidad is very hilly and we needed a handicap entrance. Our food... More

The service was excellent, and I really enjoyed the pasta (had the Penne Rustica). The restaurant is reputed to feature singing waiters, but I guess I missed them. Anyway, I liked the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. Rino's is apparently also very popular with locals.
