Went last night on hotel's recommendation, glad we did. Crisp salad with house dressing, then Chico's Special, shrimp and chicken on penne al dente in a sublime cream sauce. Every bite a delight, served on a hot plate. The ambience was wonderful, with soft lighting though good over our table. Decor is Italianate to the core. Topping it off was... More

Really good food. Decent prices. And singing waiters/waitresses. This renovated 1800's church offers so much. Sometimes the singing can get a little loud, the owner has a BOOMING voice. But it's fun, and heartfelt, and really wonderful.

Oh my...traveling south on I-25 from Denver to Albuquerque in a motor home followed by our family including two toddlers in a mini van, finding a place to eat (other than fast food) on a Sunday night in Trinidad, CO was rather challenging. Our family of six were the first patrons to be seated soon followed by several others. The... More

Housed in a 19th century church, this interesting restaurant presents authentic southern Italian food. The owner, a restauranteer from Las Vegas also sings, as did our waitress. Try the homemade pasta, such as the wild mushroom ravioli. Worth the stop.

I have been here 3 times, and always had great service and good food. The owner can sing Italian opera. Must of the waitstaff sings pop, country and jazz. The children will love the live entertainment. When the owner sings Nessum Dorma or Core N'grato, you almost want to yell bravo. But, don't, LOL. The cocktails are good. I had... More

I looked back on my reviews and realized I hadn't put one in for this restraunt and I need to because it is by far the greatest atmosphere for a restraunt I've ever come across! My family and I eat here every time we're in Trinidad, which is about twice a year, as its our halfway meeting point for extended... More

This restaurant is a real treat! It is old school hospitable. The menu is varied and what restaurant serves a salad as part of the meal without charging extra for it?! It was not the average lettuce, tomatoes cucumber and onion. The salad also included beets, and carrots. My husband had spaghetti and meats balls and I had chicken piccata.... More

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!!
