We enjoy this restaurant for its wonderful atmosphere. It's so nice to drive in after dark to the festively-lit trees. It's nice in the summer to eat on the lower patio/lawn area, too. Dessert portions can be small, but some of the pasta entrees are very generous. Be sure to ask your server's advice.

I had visited Gervasi Vineyard with a friend a few months back and enjoyed my time at the Bistro and during the tour. I was looking forward to taking my Mom there for a nice afternoon. However, I didn't realize the Bistro didn't open until 4pm. So Mom and I headed over to the Crush House. The hostess was very... More

Besides their main restaurant, Gervasi has more of a bistro type place in their Crush House. Very nicely decorated and organized with a ground floor bar and seating, and second floor seating overlooking the bar, plus private rooms and outside terrace. We were there with another couple for lunch today. Had a variety of items ranging from burger to salad... More

This place is awesome! I live 1.5 hrs away in pa, and it's worth the drive. We went on a sunday and had a nice lunch on the piazza. Sampled some wine in the Bistro since the Crush house was closed. The food and wine is a bit pricey, but well worth it. The lake is just beautiful. We walked... More

My wife and I wanted to get away for an escape weekend after a very busy month, but didn't want to go too far from the Pittsburgh area where we live. For some reason, I thought about Canton. We were never there. We did some research, and figured that we'd give it a try. We love to try new wineries.... More

Stopped here while visiting Kent State University. The grounds are immaculate and quite stunning. Dining at the Bistro really put the icing on our proverbial cake. It was lunch so we sampled the wines and salads - took in the winery tour as well. For what we assumed would be a quick lunch stop, far exceeded our expectations.

I booked a table through Open Table for our anniversary dinner at Gervasi. Because I added a note about the event, we were greeted by "Happy Anniversary," when we checked in at the restaurant entrance, as well as by having those words written in chocolate on our shared dessert plate. Nice touch! Both of the entrees we had were wonderful,... More

If there is one restaurant in Canton we will always take our out of town guests it's here. The setting is fabulous. The god is always wonderful and the wine is superb. My husband is not a wine enthusiast so is thrilled that they serve beer. You will love your visit to Gervasi.

A group of 5, we ordered appetizers to share as well as salads before our entrees. Wish we had been told how large the portions were as we might have scaled back (would have given 5 stars if the server had warned us we were probably over ordering). Everything was tasty - including a spicy pepper and risotto starter. Salads... More
