According to their website, Travinia's food is "Inspired to be the finest."The company has been serving food since 2002, with a Contemporary American Italian twice. Presently, the have We proudly thirteen locations, with Virginia in Charlottesville, Leesburg, Newport News, Richmond, Woodbridge--the Richmond location is in the Willow Lawn Shopping Center in the New West End.
Mark Craig and Kevin Cox, the founders and owners of Travinia were inspired by California wine country and wanted to blend their passion for wine and delicious Italian food together while simultaneously creating a dining experience unique to the region the restaurant is located in. They also provide a gluten-free menu for guests who desire and need one.
My roommate invited me to join with her parents for dinner one evening so of course I had to join! The restaurant is a really cool spot and has a lot of outdoor seating space, which I am excited to check out this summer. We waited for our entire party to arrive at the bar and enjoyed a wonderful selection of wine. I'd love to go back for happy hour with girlfriends one day soon.
I did realize that the dining room wasn't that packed but despite that, our food still took almost 45 minutes to prepare.
I also think that our server could have been a little bit more personable, but she was young and likely will continue to learn as she grows as a server.
Overall, I'd say this spot is somewhere worth checking out in the Willow Lawn shopping center!
