Historically, WV queries have generated little feedback. So, as I spent all last week there, I thought I'd share my find(s).

Morgantown is a restaurant wasteland. Granted, when I was there WVU was out on summer vacation, but it's not like great restaurants spring up in the vacant buildings downtown the moment college students show up. The one place we tried that was even remotely Hound-worthy was Oliverio's, a family-style Italian place in Morgantown's optimistically named "Wharf District." It's just off University Ave. (119 Hwy) south of town. I had a really good italian sausage and roasted peppers pasta dish. Even here, the chicken parmesan was fairly weak.

Back Bay (seafood), Casa d'Amici (pizza) and others were universally weak. Ruby and Ketchy's (off I-68's exit 10) was good for breakfast.

Otherwise, I'd steer clear of this town...for food or anything else. Very disppointing.
