Ate there for the 3rd time this year, this time with a large group. Service, food, and beer were all great...especially for the price. Simply can't beat the price for the quality. The pizza is some of the best anywhere, highly recommend the Hot pepper and greens pizza. Tressel's pasta is great as well.

On a whole most of our lunches were bland and tasteless. One had a pepper and egg sandwich and had one small piece of pepper on two very small pieces of bread. Four of us had the white fish in wine sauce, it tasted more like vinegar than wine. The portion of fish was pitiful. . The salad was white... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner and had the raviolli and spaghetti, the sauce was great and the service even better. If you come this place is always jumping. They even have a bocci court outside under cover.

I keep hearing people say how fantastic this place is. I have tried it twice and have to say I prefer a chain like Carrabbas (which isn't saying much) to the MVR. The food is on the "bland" side and nor served very hot. The service is VERY good; the food passable. The better choice is Cafe Capri in Boardman.

Great example of Youngstown's excellent selection of Italian joints. The greens are phenomenal, red sauce is perfectly balanced and meatballs are homemade. Mid priced, bocce court part of outside patio, decent bar selection, a repeat for me and the family.

Friendly atmosphere, great service and Italian food! I was in town to visit family recently and was told this was a MUST! The owner, Joe, was so friendly and the food was outstanding. I was impressed with the taste and portion of the sauce that came with my lasagna. The meatballs are excellent as well. Only went there once while... More

Went with a friend for dinner. I have been here quite a few times. It has good food and a nice atmosphere . I ordered the spinach ravioli with a spicy red cream sauce. Every time I go I forget to tell them to put the sauce on the side. Because they just smother the food with sauce and it... More

Homemade pasta, great food, and a congenial atmosphere will all be found at the MVR Restaurant near the Youngstown State campus. Locals eat here weekly. The food is served promptly and hot. The service is usually very good. The wedding soup, Tressel tortellini, and gnocchi are superb. It can be very busy on weekend evenings, so come early.

Have been to MVR probably 5 times in the last 2 years with family who live nearby and really like MVR's. The service has always been outstanding but my entree's have been consistently average. I keep waiting to get the dish with the "WOW FACTOR" but to date I have not been served this item. Every time I've ordered a... More
