themanofec, Thank you very much! It really means a lot to us when a customer circles back and lets us know that we have improved things. I also had the Rigatoni this past Sunday and felt it was one of the best pasta dishes we have ever put on our menu! We appreciate your continued business and support. Thank you! More

We love all of the Gervasi venues. The Bistro is wonderful and in the summer the piazza is absolutely the best! Best outdoor dining I have ever experienced. The Crush house is great for a wonderful view of the property and we enjoy lunch here. The Twisted Olive has it all! Extensive menu with choices for everyone. Love the full... More

While staying in the Villas, we went to dinner at The Bistro and truly enjoyed ourselves. The decor is rustic with wooden and brick floors, huge wooden doors, and a winding stariase with two floors of seating. We were led to a quiet corner downstairs with s huge fire roaring in the fireplace. Very romantic. I was with my friend... More

I am becoming a frequent guest at Gervasi's. If we have any customer meetings in the Canton/Akron area Gervasi is our choice.

I'm not a pasta lover, but this place is amazing. Most of their pasta is fresh made, the rest flown in from Italy. I've been here on several occasions, and each time was more than satisfied. I'm a wine snob, so if you're coming for amazing wine you're out of luck. The wine is more like table wine, not bad... More

My wife and I visited for the 1st time, and we were not disappointed! Arrived before the 3pm check-in and had snacks and wine at the Crush House- fabulous small plates and service! Then off to the room which was very Tuscan indeed, great ambience. Each villa is great for lounging and conversation. Dinner at the Bistro was excellent. Our... More

Walked here while staying at the Villas of Gervasi. The stroll and the grounds are gorgeous. The restaurant atmosphere was nice and the history is interesting - would recommend reviewing before visiting. We tried the wine flights in order to taste a variety and enjoyed. The food was a little heavy/greasy but good. Not open on Mondays.

North Canton isn't Tuscany or Napa Valley, but you could be excused for confusion if someone dropped you here. From the moment you enter the grounds, everything in view has been carefully prepared to support the illusion that you could be in the heart of wine country (pick the country, any country). The carefully nurtured vines, the artfully bricked trails... More
