Travinia Italian Kitchen - Lexington is so very delicious. Service outstanding. Our waiter made perfect suggestions for us! This is a nice place to go for great Italian choices as well as seafood and steak. Wine was also good with different price ranges to choose from.

Our server Katie made the night!!!! She was outstanding from the start!!! We ordered Italian Nachos to start our evening and then moved to the Brussels sprouts and Spinach and Goat Cheese salad which both were delightful and full of flavor. Our main courses consisted of Chicken Scaloppine, Chicken Marsala with Gouda Mac & Cheese as well as Spaghetti Bolognese with capellini pasta with an order of Meatballs!!! Everything was superb and the chefs did a fantastic job!!! As the night went on Katie kept our drinks and coffee full and really accommodated our every need. Thanks for a great evening!!! Keep up the good work Katie!!!!

Food exellent, value for the money fair, waiter was not as attentive as he could have been especially since it was not crowed at all. Good creme brule.

Our server was delightful and helped us make choices. I had the scallops with creamy Parmesan risotto and a side of roasted Brussels sprouts. Every bite was absolutely scrumptious. My daughter enjoyed her apple salad with grilled salmon. We will definitely go back.

The service provided by our waitress Katie is what pushes my rating to 5 star. I have always thought the food was very good, some items outstanding, but Katie really excelled for us last night. We were seated in the bar and came for dinner and the entertainment. Katie recognized that we would enjoy a leisurely dinner, nothing rushed, and paced everything out perfectly. We were also lucky to get a parking space. The parking lot is shared by a couple of other restaurants and lacks sufficient space. Some spaces are marked so narrow that you can't get your car door open if you try to stay within the lines. Pickup trucks and other large vehicles take up 3 spaces. The business is really being hurt by the parking issues.

.Good Food and Table service.

I have revised my review because management never responded to our concerns about the rudeness of the hostess Upon our arrival since we were 12 minutes late on our reservation on a Tuesday night and the place was half empty, and that was because we could not find any parking . Also the reusing of same table cloths over and over during the night. I would have thought management would be more concerned about the health of their customers and change the tablecloths. We actually saw the hostess reuse the same table cloth 3 times while we were there. She was actually wiping off dirty spots right in front of guest.

Very disappointed since this was a favorite restaurant of ours.

Overall, a good experience. Service was a little slow, but our waitress was really trying. Just too many tables, but under the current circumstances, she sure did her best. Food was very good, as always. Mussels are fantastic, as was my husband's special of 3 different pasta dishes. Two others had steaks, said they were a little on the rare side, but loved them anyway. This is our favorite restaurant in Lexington.

Our waitress felt it was more important to get the wine room finished then to serve us. We were left hanging after our meal came. I had to contact another waitstaff to get us what we needed. I spoke management and explained it was my husband’s birthday dinner, I had to hear the excuses for the poor service. We were only offered a dessert to go, we declined. Oh and we were given an attitude by him. Never again! Too bad because we liked the food.

We called at 1:40 on Sunday and they said there was a 25 minute wait or we could use open table for a reservation. We did just that. We got there at 2:00p and were told they were closed even though they had available reservations AND all the signage stated 3:00p. I tried reaching out to the management via email and they ignored me.

Both hostesses were rude and not helpful at all. Reservations were scheduled for 1pm and we were not seated until 1:20pm; only after asking several times. We were told twice we could not be seated in the reserved wine room because silverware was not placed yet. After going to the room and verifying that the silverware was there I asked for a 3rd time to be seated immediately and I did not care if the silverware was there or not. We were then told we would have to wait for service because they were busy and did not have a waiter available. Very disappointed in the two hostesses. Waiter did a good job once he came to the room.

Our server was great, very pleasant and professional. We had 8 people and were seated in a separate room which was nice and quiet. The problem we had was an incredibly long wait for food, and then the food was mediocre. I understand short staffing issues and so the hour (or more) long wait for our entrees would have been okay if the food had been excellent, but unfortunately it was not.

The food was inedible, served cold and brought to the table at different times.

Travinia should stick to their main Italian cuisine which they do well. We will not return for brunch!!

The food was good, the service was terrible. We were never offered drink refills, we didn't get any bread, or napkins. Some of the silverware was dirty. We had a party of 7, and 2 of the entrees showed up 10 minutes after the other 5 did. We dont plan on returning.

Justin Owen the manager was so professional. My friend who owned various restaurants had an issue and Justin took care of it immediately. It could not have been handled any better. We will come back often because of him and would steal him away if we were still in the restaurant

This was our first time at this restaurant. The food was excellent. The wine menu is small and uninspiring. However we did find a nice inexpensive Cabernet. Kind of a mix of Italian with a Southern US flare. The service was excellent. Dillon took great care of us. The general manager Justin Owens came by to chat with us. He is quite charming. The highlight was the live jazz trio. That made the evening.

The food was creative and well prepared--much more so than one would expect in a suburban location. The crab cake appetizer was superlative, as was the roast chicken on a bed of brussel sprouts. Short rib pasta was also quite tasty and the tiramisu was terrific. Good wine and excellent service. A real find.
