Great service & talented singing wait staff. Spaghetti & meatballs & cheese ravioli with marinara sauce was great. The bread was excellent. COCOA Berry Blast was perfect fruity drink. Very relaxing enjoyable evening in a beautiful historic building in Trinidad Co.

The last time we ate here, we were disappointed and waited several years before trying it again. Not sure if it really changed for the positive. First off, for fine dining, I would like my meal served on at least porcelin and not Melmac, a little tacky. Second, the singing waiters were ok the first time sing Italian melodies but... More

The service was really good and the owner and one of the cooks singing to the house during dinner was a lot of fun. Very friendly staff and again, the service was really good. We liked the atmosphere. It's an old church they renovated into a restaurant. White linen table cloths are a nice touch. It has low lighting throughout... More

Rino's is located in a picturesque old church building which is interesting in its own right. The food is excellent, the drinks are honest, the service is good and the occasional song by one of the waiters is entertaining.

Out of touch, out of date and a vanity affair. We had heard good things about this place and being of Italian decent were anxious to give it a go. Meals were unmemorable, service was spotty and on more than one instance had to be reminded of a request. They did however have plenty of time to sing. Several of... More

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.

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!!
