We love that this restaurant welcomes boots, breeches and helmet hair without batting an eye. Because this restaurant is super nice. Menu is very original and the entrées are not run of the mill. They have a few staples but many unique tasty Italian dishes. Drink menu is also a little unique and they are very generous with the liquor... More

Travinia has had its ups and downs. Lately it has been mostly ups! Food is very good and service has been very much improved. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

Salads are very good but other things have been below par in my book. Won't go back. Have tried several times and its the same each time. Other great places to go in Aiken.

Food and Service was excellent, although a bit out of the way from other restaurants. The selection from the menu was very good and the atmosphere is very upscale. This is not an inexpensive place to dine out since I had one of their specials and it it was very good, but pricey. They have outdoor seating and on a... More

This was one of the worst Italian meals I've experienced. Salad is 4 bucks in addition to meal and is VERY small. The lasagna....premade and frozen maybe? The pasta was mushy, meat sauce was all sausage, which overpowered the cheese, and the sauce was runny unseasoned tomato sauce. It is served in an awkward metal pan that is way too... More

Ok, so this place looks nice, menu looks good, our service was good and that is where the the "good" ends. The food was just awful. There were 5 of us and everything was bad. Our complaints ranged from just bland and flavorless to excessive use of lemon in scampi sauce, to down right not authentic Italian flavor. What a... More

I love good Italian food, and Travinia is not the place to enjoy it. The waiter was friendly and informative. He checked on us frequently. But the food was not "heated through," which immediately told me it was a pre-prepared "'reheat." The wine choice was good. The mussels were prepared well which I ordered in place of the cool pasta... More

Each experience consisted of horrible food and service. The manager on duty (which seems to vary) had no interaction with waitstaff or customers. They say 'the third time's a charm', but this is my third time and it was awful; once again. The female waitstaff was involuntarily 'harassed' which alarmed me most. Do not, DO NOT go there or you...
