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.

Waitress was attentive but didn't feel rushed. Food was very good and hot when it arrived at the table. Presentation was very good. Only complaint was the cappuccino at the end of the meal tasted like stale coffee. Other than that everything was great.

The restaurant was rustic and beautiful. The food selection was very nice. The food was good but not excellent. We started with the muscles which were excellent. I ordered the special scallops and they were over-salted. I could only eat two of the five. The corn risotto was very creamy. My husband had the bolognese and the meat was strangely prepared. It had the consistency of a thin pressed patty of meat. The flavor of the sauce was good without the meat but was too thin. The tiramisu was perfect. Our server was excellent and very professional. It was our anniversary and he brought out a plate of gelato to go with our dessert. I would try it again because the atmosphere was very nice. Perhaps it was an off-night.

Went here for our Anniversary, loved the atmosphere, waitress was outstanding but the food was not worth what you pay for it. Had pork and it was tough with not much seasoning. Wife had scallops and not much flavor at all.

Bistro at Gervasi is a great venue. We usually go for special occasions such as our recent anniversary or for birthdays but have also gone in when we just want to treat ourselves to a great meal. And the excellent wine is worth the trip as well. Gervasi has so much to offer. I recommend perusing their website for food, drink and accommodations

Reservation was for 7:30pm. We’re taken to table around 7:50 after sitting in loft & not getting a good feeling that we were not told how we would be contacted when a table was ready for us. We finally went down to desk so she would remember we were waiting on our table. Another couple was complaining about the same thing. We were finally seated. Server was very nice, but my husbands order was incorrect & was taken back 3 times. We were told bread would be brought to our table, but we didn’ receive it until we were almost done eating. Actually, I was done & was watching my husband eating since his right meal took so long to come. He wanted me to eat since my food would get cold if I didn’t. At least the server remembered we were celebrating our 37th anniversary & brought us complimentary gelato on a nice plate! When the bill came it was incorrect due to the incorrect meal being serviced to my husband first. The bill was corrected & chocolates were left for us to enjoy.

Gervasi is a wonderful addition to our area, but after all the years the Bistro has been in business it just didn’t seem to have its’ act together. Or maybe it was our server?!

Usually Gervasi is amazing. This last visit service was poor and food not prepared correctly. Thought they had a business / causal dress required. When the guy next to me is in hiking boots and a pocket tee or flip flops and ball cap it really brings down the atmosphere. We were really disappointed as it has always been outstanding in the past.

We had a reservation for 5:30, we checked in at 5:00 and were told to come back at 5:30. When we did return we didnt get seated until 6:15 however they did offer seating at a communal long bar table. The ordering took a while, we waited an additional half hour to pay the bill and had to hunt down our server. The food was delicious. The wine was excellent. The restaurant has great ambiance. They just need to work on their service.
