Description: 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!!

For the many travelers who stop in Trinidad on their way to Colorado, this restaurant is atypical of the types of restaurants usually available on road trips. Located in a historic old church in the downtown area, the restaurant provides kitschy old-world ambience via a large ornate chandelier and waitstaff who sing everything from Italian arias to Sinatra staples. The food is quite good, and the atmosphere is lively. We were served complimentary glasses of wine when we told our server that our hotel had recommended Rino's. Nice dining experience to rejuvenate the senses after riding in a car all day.

The food was really good. The prices were reasonable for the quality of food and the experience. The singing waiters were wonderful. Really enjoyed the meal and the staff. Will eat there again next time I am in Trinidad

The singing waiters were distracting to what I thought would be a quiet, romantic evening. The food was sub-par and the service was lacking.

My wife and I read the reviews and ate here on a Saturday night. Without reservations, we were treated as very welcome guests to a wonderful meal and a tremendous night of entertainment. Yes, the owner sang as well as some of the wait staff, but the two of us were amazed at the passion of the staff in serving us. I truly felt like I was part of their large family. My wife's Chicken Florentine was excellently prepared and my "waiter-recommended" dish was one of the best Italian dishes I have eaten. It was called Gino's and was a combination of shrimp and chicken in a very tasty sauce. We will return!
