Come hungry with these huge portions!

This place is amazing! We went on a friday night and only had to wait a half hour for a table. Since I was visiting Youngstown I knew I wanted to get something with greens since I've always had some of the best greens near the Youngstown area. I had the linguini with chicken and escarole greens and... read more

Homemade pasta, in a family restaurant, was a wonderful surprise. Linguine and clam sauce (white), was amazing! The sauce was not too rich, and had fresh clams in every bite. I also tried the Chicken Parm, and thought it was also very yummy....crispy and smothered in fresh sauce. Start it all off with Sleepy Hollow Garlic Bread. It doesn't get... More

This is one of those places that locals would recommend without hesitation. It's been around since the 1930's, and with good reason.

one of our family's favorite places to go. My son is in the Marines and every time he is home there is not a question in anyone's mind we will go there before he leaves. Very good menu, simple surroundings, outdoor bocce courts and outdoor bar and the best italian greens you will ever have!

I have 45 minutes for lunch of which some is spent getting there and back. The staff can really get you in and out if you order right away and ask for your bill when you get your food. Love the chicken ceasar salad. Wedding soup is always on the menu and is 'good' all the time, but it is... More

The MVR is like two places in one. First you have the main restaurant which has great food big portions and good prices. There is also a nice bar inside. Next you have the outdoor area which is all covered. There is another bar and more seating. They also have multiple bocce courts were you can play bocce or corn... More

The MVR is a Youngstown staple. The sauce and meatballs are the best. Wednesday is Mexican night which is equally as good. If you are near Youngstown State this is where you want to eat!!

I love this place. It is what is left of a working class neighborhood. The service is good, and it is a nice place to have a meeting or party. My favorite is the Tressell Tortellini. And for those who enjoy playing bocce, they have a bocce court!
