Good Italian Dinner!

Good Italian dishes but the best dish was the roasted brussel sprouts! Pasta dishes are large and enough for two meals. Server was attentive and friendly.

We usually have an enjoyable experience here but I believe the kitchen was a little understaffed for Sunday lunch. It took a long while for our food to arrive. It looked like just 2 cooks. My wife ordered crab cakes and they were burnt black on the bottom. Overall, the food was good. Try the Italian nachos - very good

Recently, went to my formerly favorite Italian restaurant only to find that they removed my two favorite dishes as well as my fiance's favorites. We were told that they would not be able to make them. They didn't seem to replace the dishes and to be honest; most of the others are average tasting or poor. So, guess I won't... More

Great atmosphere, awful food. May be the worst Italian type chain there is. Everything on the menu looks and sounds great but it never is. This is food service plastic bag food. Not much to choose from in Lexington so people convince themselves that the food is good. I've eaten there 50 times because there is not much else. I... More

This restaurant felt really warm and comfortable. It wad a nice atmosphere for small group gatherings and couple dates. My wife's job held a farewell dinner for her and it turned out well. Prices were a bit high for the portions but you also have the option of soups and salads with most entrées. The service was stupendous with a... More

Travinia's in Lexington is pretty much everything it should be, its a pleasant place to go for a drink or dinner. It's nicely appointed, the food is very good, and there's a good wine list. Our server was Devin and he was very helpful.
