Grand Boulevard welcomes Travinia Italian Kitchen

Published: Saturday, August 17, 2013 at 12:36 PM.

All dishes are made from scratch and they offer gluten free options.

Following its July 8 soft opening, Justak said the restaurant, which seats 275, is doing wonderful.

"News has spread by word of mouth. We have enjoyed a great start. We have the right staff and people who believe in what we believe in: awesome Italian," he said.

The restaurant's chef is Josh Higgins, who uses local seafood vendors for fresh great flavor.

Open for only about a month, on any given night the coveted bar seats are usually full of locals meeting other locals for a drink and a bite to eat.

The long half-moon shaped bar with three big-screen TVs can seat 20 comfortably inside, and when the temperatures begin to drop, the windows on the bar's south side are opened up to include the outdoor bar, which seats 15.

If you aren't sure which wine you want that is sold only by the bottle, sample upper tier selections such as Silver Oak from the restaurant's Napa Technology wine machine.
