Okay so I have read other reviews about hair in the food... I thought it was just me. I've tried it many times and every time it has been disappointing. Food was cold when it came out (service was not prompt) the only reason we waited around was because it was late.

This restuarant has a fine decor, with full Italian flair. The four person party I was with each had something different. I had the spaghetti and meatballs, my wife had white clam sauce pasta, while the other couple shared a mixed veggie pizza. We all had a salad that was fresh, and prepared and presented with good taste. All meals... More

I had have tried Travinia several times and each time disappointed. Birthday luncheon and the chicken scaloppini tasted fine but once me and a coworker returned to work we both were sick. On another occasion when the bread came out it was warm on the outside and frozen on the inside. Ordered the sausage and peppers the sauce was thick... More

As a local Aikenite, have visited this restaurant since it's opening many years ago. The ambiance is great, can't beat it in the contemporary mode. Food has changed as chef's come and go. Once upon a time it was always great. Now catch as you can with the better chef on shift.

We stopped to enjoy some Italian food and found it a bit 'middle of the road'. The salads are generous and fresh but my friend's flat bread with meatballs needed a sauce and our waitress agreed it needed the marinara that came with my calamari. The calamari were well prepared but was spicy with the hot peppers included. What I... More

A chain restaurant that has usually OK food. This location did not change that description. I had some bowtie pasta with a cheese sauce and some red peppers, and it was OK, nothing special. My friend had a chicken dish that he said was OK as well. Better than Olive Garden, but not much....

Lunch specials are a good size and reasonably priced. Nice variety of wines which are a bit high...I think. Never disappoint.

Went with a group of friends for brunch after Church. While different folks ordered some brunch items, I opted to order from the menu. The selection was sausage and peppers rustica,the dish was good,but not great. It lacked peppers in the dish. My grandson had a Mambo sandwich, which he said was very good, it will be my choice on...
