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!!

A waitress and the owner (Manager?) were singing a duet. The staff randomly would pick up the mic and sing various songs from Phantom of the Opera... read more

Drove up to Trinidad from New Mexico for a couple days. The reviews made this place sound like the food would be good. We were very disappointed. My wife ordered the chicken and eggplant dish. It was too bland and the sauce was made with cornstarch! I asked for the special of the day which was spinach ravioli. they turned... More

Haven't been here since 2012, and it's still great! Great atmosphere, superb food, friendly & efficient service ... and live music to sooth the soul after a long day driving ... don't miss if you're staying in Trinidad

Great food and linen. Two of the waitresses came separately to sing a song from Phantom. The chicken Marcella and lobster ravioli were great. Everyone was friendly.

If you're looking for a great family/friends atmosphere to have a special dinner or celebration this is the spot! Food is authentic Italian and the service is excellent. Met the owner and his passion for his business is evident. Felt welcome and totally taken care of. Unlike certain local eating establishments who claim to be quaint this one truly is!

A local person recommended we try this restaurant, and we are so glad we did! The food was very good, but the service and entertainment was outstanding. The owner was so friendly and made sure all the food was plated properly, and that we were satisfied with the taste. Then he and several of the staff entertained us with song... More

The food was ok but the singers are so loud you can't have a conversation with the people at your table. It was more annoying then pleasant.

We stopped here on the way back home to Texas from Colorado. Such a fun place - singing waiters and good food. Even our 10 year old enjoyed it.

We arrived on a Saturday night when there were plenty of tables and our party of 3 got seated at a table for 6 by the bay window area. Even though we got to peek out the windows, it was rather chilly where we were sitting. The architecture of the building makes you feel you are in an old church.... More
