I wasn't sure what I would get from a strip mall but I was amazed by the wonderful food, the spot-on service and the comfortable setting. The peppers and sausage are outstanding. I also loved the mushroom bisque. Who am I kidding, I have loved everything I have eaten there. Take the chance. You will not be disappointed.

Love the atmosphere and the happiness of the servers. Great place for an intimate dinner for two, or even for a girls - or guys, night out. Have never had anything to eat here that I didn't like.

This Italian restaurant offers a great food and wine experience! The place is phenomenal and worth some time to walk around and check out. The menu is not enormous, but they offer a nice, solid variety. The food was very good. The service was good. The wine flights were fun to try! My wife and I really enjoyed the whole... More

Very deserving of a top rating. We were seated in the cellar area downstairs which has a fantastic ambience and décor and is much quieter than upstairs. This restaurant excels on all levels including service, food and value. Our waitress was exceptionally professional and could easily work in any high end restaurant in the world. Though a little scripted, everything... More

In a town that has every mid level chain on the planet, gervasi vineyards offers a unique option. The bistro serves Italian dare - pretty heavy dishes with a few healthy options. Salty though. They offer their owns wines and a few private label Italian options. They didn't have the barilla which was "out of season". First I have heard... More

Thank you Karen D! We appreciate your review. I will share your feedback with our team. "Out of season" was how our staff person chose to explain that wine grapes are only harvested once a year and therefore certain wines become unavailable. However, we do not have a wine called "barilla". I'm wondering if you mean Barolo? We do run... More

And trust me, I am foodie enough that I will complain about something if it bothers me. Our meals were delicious, no problems on the execution or service. Highly recommend the house gnocchi made with braised beef as well as the pork chop with pancetta caramel sauce. As far as the wine goes, just stick to the Amarone and you... More

Good for wine and dessert, FAR below average for Italian. I had very high expectations for Gervasi Bistro. I’ll review our meal and provide additional detail: Appetizer: We ordered the hummus and a flight of wine. The hummus was rather bland and tasteless, but it came with various toppers such as a pepper mix and corn mix which I did... More

Emily D, I am so sorry that both pork chops were not cooked correctly. I am glad that our staff responded and provided you with free desserts. I am glad the other meals were to your liking. I hope this will not prevent you from giving us another chance in the future. Thank you. More
