Inspired to be the finest.
Since 2002, Travinia Italian Kitchen has been serving deliciously fresh and Contemporary American Italian cuisine to the upstate and beyond. We proudly offer you several locations, including those in South Carolina (Lexington, Myrtle Beach), Virginia (Charlottesville, Leesburg, Newport News, Richmond), and North Carolina (Asheville, Morrisville).

The notion to create Travinia’s award-winning menu and contemporary dining atmosphere was born of a vision, and a vacation for owners Mark Craig and Kevin Cox. While touring Napa Valley, Mark and Kevin re-imagined how the love of flavorful food and their passion for wine could become a truly classic experience … an ever-changing offering of classic recipes combined in the Italian tradition.

Incomparable food. Amazing service. 
Serving handcrafted selections for both lunch and dinner, each Travinia Italian Kitchen and Chef is compelled by a passion for the flavors and freshness of regional ingredients.  Here, guests look forward to a creative and varied menu of contemporary Modern American Italian choices, a Gluten-Free menu, an impressive collection of carefully-chosen wines, and an atmosphere of comfort, style … and our unmistakable desire to please.
