Gervasi Vineyard & Italian Bistro offers Northeast Ohio a memorable destination for wine lovers, diners, families, businesses and tourists. Gervasi is one of the few special places where beauty, tradition, comfort and appreciation for wine and fresh food connect. Wine varieties are among the best in Ohio. The Gervasi Italian Bistro dinner menu ingredients are seasonally hand-selected and grown by local farmers. The property, vineyard, historic farmhouse, bistro, lake, landscapes, and the new villa project for overnight accommodations are picturesque from every view. Highlights include a marketplace specialty store, event pavilion, walking paths, outdoor dining and yard game activities for relaxation and fun. We do have a community table and upstairs lounge area available for walk-ins as well, with the full menu.

Service was outstanding! My waiter Mark was the best I've ever had. Price on the items were way to much cause I'm pretty sure I could get the same quality food at olive garden. Noise level was WAY to loud I could hardly hear my girlfriend. I was going to purpose to her there but the noise was way to loud we could hardly even talk while we were there. Kinda felt like I was out bar hopping instead of having a nice glass of wine.

Excellent service from Mark. Great for gluten free options. They even give you gf garlic bread that had a great taste. Came for the best appetizer, risotto and pancetta stuffed hot peppers. Good portion sizes. They give you a treat for your birthday. Very nice touch. Always excellent here. No wonder weekends book up so quickly.

We chose The Bistro at Gervasi Vineyard for a small family celebration. We selected "The Sunday Supper" option, and were very pleased and surprised by the large portions and wonderful flavor. We were seated close to the roaring fireplace and enjoyed the soft background music and overall atmosphere. Our server, Dirk, was very personable and attentive without being intrusive. He helped make it a very special evening. We will definitely return for any future celebrations.

The ginger salmon was delicious. Service was good. We didn’t have a view of the beautiful property but had an out of the way table that allowed for conversation and catching up with friends. A walk around the property after lunch was perfect on a fall day.

Disappointing visit. We sat by a huge group who was very loud almost the entire dinner. Couldn’t even talk with our group. The manager and our waitress did apologize, which was kind, but didnt make our visit any more enjoyable. We asked if we could move tables, but there was no where else to sit My food was only half warm. We’ve never had this experience here before, but we were very disappointed. This shouldn’t happen at such a high end restaurant.

Unfortunately our waitress was preoccupied with the table next to us. We were seated approximately a half hour after our reservation time. We were compensated with free dessert/appetizer. Our waitress would seem to disappear. We were only asked once if would like another drink. Most of her time was spent chatting with the couple seated next to us. Our food was excellent but the service was the complete opposite. Very disappointing since we were celebrating an anniversary.

Four of us ate at Gervasi for the first time. It was to celebrate a birthday. All the great things we'd heard about it proved to be true. I want to go back to enjoy the food and service and ambiance of the place; my husband will go again for the prices. BUT I do have a complaint.....my entree was brought to the table before I'd finished my salad. It's a pet peeve of mine. So for my next visit I will be sure to inform my server to give us more time between courses.

First time going there,it was unbelievable! We will be going back again for sure. I recommend for couples of all ages! Be sure to take the walk to see the water and the beautiful surroundings. Superb service, Nicole, was great. Perogies are the bomb, be bold and order the filet! Dont save room for dessert, just indulge yourself for the hazelnut brownies and gelato. well worth everything!

Nicole, our server, and her assistant wait staff were wonderful. The food was wonderful. Enjoyed everything. The only very small thing was the table where we were seated. It was a table with four place sittings even though we were only two. So, we had plenty of room to spread out our drinks and plates. However, the table is near the hostess desk at the entrance and in the path from the kitchen to all of the tables in the room. So, this table had a lot of pedestrian traffic going back and forth. Next time we go, I will request a table outside of the frequently traveled path.

Gervasi once again went above my expectations. We were seated down in the wine cave. Perfect for our party of 8. Isolated from the noise and set in a perfect ambience. Food was on point again and I can’t rave about their wines enough. Truly Tuscany right here in Canton Ohio

One of our favorite restaurants. Wife’s meal, ginger salmon, was excellent. My meal, halibut with mussels, was a little disappointing. The halibut was excellent, but there were only three mussels and they were small. The crab roll appetizer and the tiramisu was also excellent. Our waitress, Anna, was outstanding. Definitely will return in the future.

Great setting in a converted barn. A beautiful property all around. Reasonable prices. They were very busy for a Wednesday and the cavernous space was loud. The two of us were seated in an alcove next to a large noisy group that pretty much ruined the evening. In retrospect we should have turned down the table, but we had already been waiting for 20 min past our reservation time. It would have been a good experience otherwise, but restaurants that cater to large groups, like this one does, should have a care about how they arrange their tables. Two-tops should not be next to ten-tops.

This was my second visit to Gervasi Bistro, the first was with my husband for a special occasion and we both enjoyed the food and service. For this visit, my friend and I arrived early as we were going to an event in downtown Canton. Our server was on the spot, friendly and attentive. There were two minor problems - first, a cocktail that wasn't up to my expectations and cheerfully exchanged, and second, soup that arrived less than lukewarm and was apologetically replaced with a piping hot, deliciously fresh bowl. My friend and I shared a wonderful beet salad, and we both enjoyed our generously portioned entrees which were two types of chicken dishes that were beyond our expectations. If you'd like a quiet meal, I'd suggest to go early during a weeknight. For my husband and my first visit, it was prime time on a weekend and it was, as expected, a noisy room. I'd go back in a heartbeat and would visit more often if Canton wasn't an hour's drive away.

We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Making the reservation on my phone was super simple. I text my wife the confirmation and she was delighted....extra special date night! Maggie was our waitress. Best waitress we've ever had....anywhere! She recommended the perfect wine for us....it was terrific. We talked about sharing our two dinners (filet & seafood) while Maggie was taking our order. Just before our food arrived, I quietly joked with my wife and asked her which dinner she wanted put in front of her. As we were deliberating who received the steak or scallops first, Maggie came to our table with the two meals equally split in separate bowls and on separate plates....perfectly thoughtful! The food was fantastic and Maggie was the icing on a beautiful special night. Thank you, Maggie! We'll be back.
