Great Food, Good Atmosphere, Fair Price

I love the food here and would easily give the place five stars, but for two things: at night the parking lot is packed and can be hard to get a spot and also because the regulars are pretty irritating. Picture a bunch of monied blue-hairs getting drunk and falling all over one another trying to land their 14th spouse.... More

The service was great! Lots of good wine options and the food is delicious. The mussels appetizer is my favorite. I had the chicken piccata entree, which I also recommend. We went on a Friday night and waited over an hour for a table. Clearly I'm not the only one who enjoys it.

I went to Travinia several times over the last year and was never disappointed. The food menu is excellent, the servers are better trained than at most other restaurants and the good quality is always high, while not being overpriced.

One of the best Italian restaurants in Lexington. Food and service are very good. Travinia has a nice atmosphere to dine in and share with friends. We usually take visitors there for a local dinner.

I have eaten in this restaurant on many occasions. I was there on last Wensday and no surprises it was great. The bar staff was very friendly and helpful and the management came around to make sure all was good. I recommend them for any occasion.

My wife and I moved away from Lexington three years ago, but coming back for a visit with friends had to include a meal here. My wife had the chicken piccata and I had the Sinatra Chicken--both delicious! Our server Brittany was attentive and friendly. The manager, Anderson Chambers, greeted us as old friends. A very fine dining experience!

The only negative was, it took through halfway our meal to get a glass of wine, that was to be brought with the entree. Bar too busy.

I met my girl friends at Travinia's last week for lunch. We loved the food! My turkey sandwich was delicious. The others had pasta with meat sauces. The veggies on my sandwich were fresh and bread stayed chewy and yummy ... Service was slow and not just because there was a meeting in an adjoining room. Our server appeared distracted... More
