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!!

The nicest place in town

The first time I went here it was good but I was not overly impressed, they were out of this and that. BUT I decided to give it another try and I am so happy that I did. First the wait staff sings all throughout dinner, which is so much fun! The atmosphere is just perfect for a nice night... read more

Not only is the food very good and reasonably priced, but the singers-- opera, show tunes, classic favorites are performed by extremely talented wait staff and owner. This is a "one-of-a-kind" restaurant in a small, picturesque area/town. All the wait staff are kind and accomodating and welcoming. We ate there three times while visiting friends. In fact, we four planned... More

Just go here. Just do it. The owner is a former Las Vegas entertainer. He and the waitstaff sing open mic at 15 minute intervals to old show tunes etc. It's fabulous. The food is impeccable and priced like a mediocre chain. Tremendous value. In all my travels, over 30 years, this was one of our best evenings overall. I... More

This restaurant was walking distance from our B&B and we are so glad we went. The building was adorable and the food was delicious. Perhaps the best thing about this place was the staff, they were so friendly and periodically they would sing among the tables. We absolutely loved this place!

My son and I were passing through and looking for a late evening dinner. Found this restaurant in a historic building. Very well staffed, and comfortable/unique setting. The Italian cuisine was excellent, and all of the staff participate in the entertainment--singing old standards and broadway show tunes. It had a family feel to it. Made for a memorable evening.

This is a rare little gem in a gorgeous old building. Our waitress was so friendly and responsive we relaxed after our long day of work in seconds! She took our drink order- nice array of cocktails, wine list so-so. After our bread arrived(nothing too special) she began to sing a very good rendition of a song from Les Mis.... More

A traditional Italian restaurant in the mining town of Trinidad. With singing waiters as well. A bit crowded - but well worth it for the excellent food. The four of us ordered four different entrees and they were all excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant! The food was very good, but it was the ambience and singing wait staff that was the most impressive. Beautiful architecture and friendly staff added to our enjoyment. We will definitely stop here again if ever in the area.

What a delight. We actually went three nights in a row. Singing Waiters and Waitresses. Italian Food. And the noodles were really wonderful. I very seldom go back to the same place, let a lone three nights in a row. Yes Trinidad is a little out of the way but, if you are going through there and like singing wait... More

We were just looking for a decent dinner. We came across Rino's relying on TripAdvisor's rating. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs, while I ordered penne rustica. Both were very good. We also enjoyed the antipasto. We accidentally ordered too much food, not realizing that our entrees came with tasty dinner salads. The atmosphere is a lot of fun, with... More
