Kathy was a fantastic server, the food was great, especially the bread! I enjoyed a chicken Parmesan bread bowl, and a cup of wedding soup. So yummy, and leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch!

Everything was amazing! The filet was cooked expertly, the service was impeccable. I got expert assistance picking out wine for a gift, and they actually checked my ID to match my credit card! A-Z this experience should not be missed!

This is ninja kicking pasta joint located in historic Meadville. The decor was awesome. Service was the best. The food was the bomb.

We had a delightful meal at Chovy's the weekend of Allegheny's Blue & Gold weekend. I have to say, I love good Italian food, but the sauce I had with my meal might have been the best sauce I have ever had - it was...amazing. I ordered the Venetian Shrimp & Scallops, and the Lobster Champagne Cream Sauce was just absurdly good. Delicious! Everyone else's meals were good, I'm sure, but I was lost in this blissful euphoria that left me unable to pay much attention. (OK, I might be overstating it, but it was really damn good.) I meant to write this review weeks ago, when my memories of the details were much better, but I know we all loved the meal we had. Our service was excellent, as well. We will definitely be back, and I'm looking forward to it already!More

Been here about a dozen times while visiting son at Allegheny College. Always great service and ample portions. Meals have been more hit than miss, but I'd recommend sticking to the basics. You won't be disappointed!

Very bad service. All wrong and late. My order was wrong. After 45 min came to ask again. My husband finished the food. I was waiting to re order. Rude waitress. Never go again.More

I'm so sorry for your poor dining experience! We pride ourselves on great food AND service and this is very disappointing to hear. I would be interested in discussing this with you. If you are interested in speaking with me, please give me a call....More

I’ve been here a few times now. I tried the stuffed hot peppers and spaghetti and meatballs. The stuffed peppers were excellent; very fresh tasting and perfectly cooked. The meatballs might be the best I’ve ever had. The bread is very good too. My only...complaint is the house salad. Very boring. I am not a big fan of iceberg lettuce with cucumbers and croutons only. Give me some other veggies and some nice mixed greens. Can’t miss restaurant in Meadville. I will definitely be back.More

I had the veal parmesan and it was very good even if my spelling of it isn't. Interesting décor friendly waitstaff and adult beverages out the wazoo. I'll go again.
