We have been here twice recently. Each time, a wonderful meal. First, we went just because we had never been there. My husband had breaded apple-cinnamon pork chops that were flavorful, moist, and tasty. I had the ravioli. The second visit? Well, he loved those pork chops so much last time, that he had them again. And they were every... More

Chovy's is an excellent place to eat. It is something that you would not expect to find in a town the size of Meadville. I and my family have eaten there many times and the food has alway been wonderful with a price to match: very reasonable. The atmosphere and decor are something that one would expect to find in...

Lunch break from an office training next door. Over priced burger, server had an attitude problem. Second time there and it was the same as the first. Please don't respond to this review, you should have asked before I left.

Low lit, romantic setting invites you to relax and enjoy the delicious food offerings with that special someone, or to celebrate any occasion. Affordable. Service was excellent, portions were geberous, and food arrived hot. Loved it!

Service is a tad slow and disjointed. However the food was very good. Portions were a good size and reasonably priced. The veal special with pasta was so tasty but the ultimate chocolate cake stole the show. Possibly the best tasting chocolate cake ever.

We stopped here on our way to Erie. It was so nice to get out of the car for a bit and enjoy a wonderful dinner. Thankfully it is casual and we didn't feel out of place in our jeans and sweatshirts. Food was delicious, the service was quick but not rushed. Portions were great, we ate everything without feeling... More

My wife and I enjoy the weeknight special at Chovy's. the best in our opinion is the pasta Chovy's that comes with a salad plus a dessert. Add a glass of wine and you have dinner for two under $50.

We recently had a private meal at Chovy's for a family funeral and it exceeded our expectations in EVERY WAY! None of us is local so we relied on online reviews to make our restaurant selection...the room was beautiful, the food excellent, and the service was top-notch! Loads of compliments particularly on the Italian Wedding Soup from our family! Becky... More
