The interior of this restaurant, in an old church, is quite charming, as is the idea of the singing waiters. However, the decibel level of the music is overwhelming and makes conversation nearly impossible, which detracts from the otherwise lovely atmosphere. Servers were friendly and prompt. When the salads (both house and ceaser) arrived, they were swimming in the dressing.... More

Being up tight Brits from out of town we struggled with the concept of singing waiters, but this restaurant seemed to be the only place open downtown on a Wednesday. This was actually a good thing as the food was really very nice being a fusion of Italian and Mexican influences; I had the shrimp (read king prawn if you... More

Saturday night dinner. Called and talked to the owner and he assured us they do not use MSG in their food and sauces. I had the chicken piccata and it was great! My wife had the mahi mahi and she found it too strong of a fish flavor. Maybe fish in Trinidad CO is asking too much. The added veggies... More

We had a memorable evening at Rino's Italian. We weren't going to go because it's a bit pricey, but decided the experience was going to be worth it and it was. Their singing waiters are really good and the food was excellent. It's like no other dining experience and I'd highly recommend making a stop for dinner at Rino's when... More

We loved the atmosphere of Rino's! Beautiful inside and out. The food is delicious and lots to choose from. Not just pasta, but steaks and chicken, too. The waiters and waitresses (and the owner) sing as they work! It's awesome!

We had been told at our hotel that this was the best place to go for dinner. Walked in and was shocked at the loudness of the music. It's all very nice to have live music, but there's no need to deafen your patrons. This was not the least bit restful or appealing. We left and returned to our hotel,... More

For something different.... Nice sit down with great pasta and waiters who grab the mic to break out in song.

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!!
