Always have had good food here!

I see a lot of mixed reviews but we love this place. The grouper is outstanding, the Italian nachos are delicious and the muscles are the best I have had anywhere. My wife loves their pasta as well. I definitely recommend it!!!

Service is either good, bad or just plain slow. Be sure to count your change and check your credit card balance. They seem to have a problem. I wonder if the wait staff reported in the Aiken Standard was who was arrested worked there.

Hey Robert, we did have an employee we had arrested for credit card fraud. However the true story was not reported accurately online. Just to set the record straight, our General Manager called the police as soon as he investigated the situation and on July 23rd Ms. Skinner was arrested for credit card fraud at the restaurant. Only because we... More

When hungry for Italian this kitchen offers a number of choices. Service is usually steady and pleasant. Occasionally we have experienced a less than adequate wait staff. Food has generally been tasty and plentiful. We like this place for a night out.

My wife and I noticed that Travinia has some new items on their menu. We had not been there in some time, so we gave it a try. Unfortunately, it was Father's Day, and they were serving off the dinner menu, which eliminated all the new lunch entrees. Travinia's wine bar is excellent. The bartender allows you to try whatever... More

Travinia's is a most excellent restaurant ! Their food is outstanding and the wait staff could not be better. Customer service is their top priority in their food and in their presentation.

Tasty Italian. Appropriate for special occasions, date night, etc. Never disappointing. Not the best for children but okay if children are well mannered and quiet. Great for romantic dinners, cocktails, etc.

When traveling in the Southeast/South Carolina you would not expect to find an above average Italian Restaurant. It was great and the service was excellent. Had the Lobster Ravioli and it was outstanding. A good set of menu choices. Would go back to this restaurant.
