i have eaten here many times and the grounds are lovely Too many geese droppings though. expensive shoes. & geese droppings shouldn't mingle. The wines are fabulous my favorite is the" Malvasio Blanco" smells like what you think a woman in an oil painting might smell like. Pure poetry in a glass. the food is delicious love the short ribs.... More

Dear whaynes53, Thank you for your review. I am so sorry about the geese. That is a year round issue for us at Gervasi. Because Canadian Geese are a protected species, our options for controlling them are limited... We work very hard to limit there access to our property. Thank you so much for your review of the Malvasia Bianca.... More

Wow! We live in Ohio, and this is a hidden gem. What a wonderful place to visit, the wines were pretty good, the Barbera was fantastic and my favorite of our entire trip! The atomosphere and service were both very good. We had a wonderful time in the tasting room, then went on to the bistro to have a fantastic... More

We've have been attempting to eat @ Gervasi's for more than 2 years, but please understand we live in Virginia and have relatives close by Gerevasi's. So in relative terms we had been in the area 5-6 times and we were successful in getting dinner reservations in the new " Cask Room" on our most recent visit. And it well... More

FuudJunkie, Your detailed review is very much appreciated! The room you are referring to is our Barile (Barrel) Room and is actually where our oak wine barrels used to be stored before we moved the winery operations and equipment over to the Crush House. I am so glad your steak was prepared correctly. I will pass your comments about the... More

The Gervasi vineyards and area are very attractive. It is easy to get to by car, and parking is not a problem. The Bistro serves great Italian food with a strong wine selection. Service was very accommodating. Portions were ample and the pasta very fresh. The gelato reminded us of Italy. If we are back in the Canton/Akron area this... More

We have been to Gervasi on a few different occasions. The wine is satisfactory and the food definitely needs some improvement. The atmosphere is amazing and worth a visit, perhaps even just for a cocktail!

While visiting Canton, I wouldn't miss a visit to Gervasi's. We enjoyed a relaxing evening on the Piazza. Bryce, our server did an excellent job. Enjoyed a great game of corn hole after dinner. We liked it so much that we had to come back for lunch at the Crush House. Sarah, our server, did a wonderful job dealing with... More

We visited the Bistro on June 7, 2014 in order to celebrate our anniversary. This is the perfect location for any special occasion. We had dinner in the newly opened lower level which has a cozy, rustic ambiance. This area used to house winemaking equipment, but with the opening of the Crush House, the equipment has moved to open up... More

I have seen the website for Gervasi's and have heard glowing recommendations but this past Saturday was the first I had been to Gervasi's.

We were given a gift card to Gervasi Vineyard but kept putting the trip off because we had heard the food wasn't very good so we really weren't in a hurry to try it.
