When we first walked in, we thought we found a real jem. The singing waiter was fun. But the service was not just slow, it was horrible. And the food, at best, was average to below average. In short, don't go!

We stumbled upon Rino's driving to Colorado for vacation. My wife loves Italian food, and this place presented great food options, a cozy atmosphere, attentive service, and wonderful singing waiters. If ever in Trinidad, CO for dinner, we highly recommend Rino's!

Going into this place is like stepping back in time. It has somewhat of a yesteryear vibe. The food was very good, the waitstaff was very friendly and competent, and the singing waiters were very enjoyable, without being bothersome. Definitely recommend!

After a long day of travel we landed in Trinidad, a gem of a town that looks so nostalgic and homey. Ended up at Rino's home of the singing waiters. What a treat. Service was fast and friendly. Pasta was delicious. And entertainment on top of that! The staff sings for the customers every 10 to 15 minutes, in the... More

We stopped for dinner here after reading the good reviews on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. The spaghetti was delicious. We didn't see the sign that said singing waiters, so we were delightfully surprised when the music started.

Its a very small place. Only mediocre food if you're really hungry. Bread seemed stale, steak was thin, fatty and overcooked, and spaghetti just average "out of a can" type. Not good for the price at all. The singing was too loud for us. Wait staff was nice and attentive. Not the greatest for children. We have two girls 5... More

We were staying overnight in Trinidad and Rino's was recommended by our hotel. It is set in a very unusual, attractive old building which I think was a church. The menu was wide enough for most people seeking Italian cuisine - certainly for my wife and myself. I had fettuccini Alfredo with chicken, my wife spaghetti with home made meatballs.... More

Food is mediocre at best, can't understand why people this a good idea....singing at you at the tops of their lungs while you eat. Don't get it. The place as a whole is very weird and expensive.

We were staying in Trinidad with family and decided to go out for dinner. Had seen the reviews on tripadvisor so decided to try our luck with no reservation. They were accommodating with 6 of us. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and particularly the staff singing. Meal was pretty good. Would recommend.

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!!
