Fish galore.

Do you go out to dinner for fish on Friday? Most restaurants in Youngstown offer fried or beer battered fish. But if you are bored with that try the MVR. Tonight I counted 14 different choices for fish! I settled on Cod cooked in a wine sauce with roasted red peppers, onions, and topped with... read more

Went to this establishment in hopes of a great Italian meal but instead recieved cold and undercooked dinners accompanied with an unprofessional server who clearly had not only lack of experience but also no knowledge of food and preparation. I ordered the greens. They came out ice cold and full of water, which will always be the result when "sauted"... More

An anchor near YSU. Have used their banquet room for funeral, family gatherings. Food is always fantastic. Very, very friendly atmosphere. One of the best places to go for authentic Italian food

Never even knew this little place was here, but I am glad I do now! Food was fantastic, beers were cold and fresh, and the service was great. Will definitely be visiting again.

I love the Veal Parmesan here .The red sauce is full of garlic that we love. The staff is not that friendly or maybe too busy to please you, unless you are a regular. But the food is always first class. Not world changing but always really good, That's why we always come back.

The meatball sub is delicious! I've been here for dinner and parties and I've always had the best experience. The owners are the kindest people!

The MVR hosted our Cardinal Mooney High Schools 50th Birthday reunion recently and it was outstanding. I came from CA and loved every minute of it. The food and service were top notch. Every detail was planned and everyone had a great time. We even had a mass and a classmate memorial table. I really liked the outside back patio... More

This was a family dinner with 18 in attendance. The restaurant was very dated, had to walk through a tight bar area to get to the first dining rooms. We were seated at two long tables pushed together - then everyone against the wall had to get up and shift if someone needed to go to the restroom. Drink order... More

had a group of 45 for annual bocce tournament and was treated like royalty! Outstanding covered bocce facilities, spacious deck and outside bar. Plenty of room for groups large and small. Rich family and sports tradition located on the edge of Youngstown State University campus.
