Food has improved greatly

We had not eaten there in the past year because of poor service and so-so food. Things have changed. Every dish was delusions. The grilled veggies were a standout and the chicken marsala was a large portion and prepared correctly.

Stopped here for an early dinner during a business trip. The service was excellent. I especially liked the opportunity to try the taste of wine before making a selection. The pine nut crusted salmon was delicious.

In the past the dishes were generally good but a little skimpy. Last night the portions and quality were greatly improved. The pastas and salads were excellent, and a good value. Drinks in the past have been better, the Cosmo lacked something, but the other drink were fine. We have always found the wait staff to be excellent.

We had the opportunity to go to dinner at the local Travinia's Italian Kitchen last evening with friends for dinner. This was not our first time dining there, but I thought it was worth letting everyone know that they deliver excellent quality at very reasonable prices. The dining experience is further complimented by the excellent service, which last evening was... More

We've always had a positive experience at Travinia's. The food offerings are diverse, the portions considerable, the service generally efficient and friendly. The wine selections are quite extensive and reasonably priced.

We have eaten at Travinia a few times and found the food to be satisfactory, but nothing special. It's the same Americanized food you would get from a chain like Carraba's or Olive Garden. The restaurant is located in a mall and the decor is similar to Carraba's. Service is slow, but the wait staff are friendly. If you want... More

Sorry to hear you think our menu is just average. I encourage you to come back and try our Jumbo lump Crab cakes or Italian Nachos. We also have an amazing Madeira Filet that will melt in your mouth. Check-in to Travinia on YELP and get a Free Italian Nacho before you dine with us. More

Two couples for lunch after Sunday services. Very disappointed. Although we were waited upon immediately upon seating, I think they are still preparing our food!!!!! All kidding aside, an inordinate amount of time passed before we were served our "cool to cold" entrees. Upon inquiry, with the very personable waitress, I was informed that a table of six had arrived... More

We went to Travinia’s in early December and were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The staff was friendly, service was prompt and attentive and the food was very good. If you like Caesar salad, you must try it here. It was the best I’ve tasted in years. I had the veal parmigiana (which I recommend) and was not disappointed. The... More
