as this post is titled morgantown vs charleston and I see a lot if Oliverio's talk I have to break some nothern West Virginians hearts as Oliverio's does not touch Fazio's.. this is opinions aside Fazio's is possibly the best Italian in the state if not the best food period. I'm from the Charleston area and have been at WVU for 4 years so no bias just the truth

overall each city is better or worse than the other in several aspects... with morgantown you have the university, new jobs coming to the area and I would say a much better selection of housing in terms of apartments I mean this place is ridiculous when it comes to the amount of apartments here and the excitement level is great especially if you are young like under 30 young.. charleston on the other hand has nicer suburbs to morgantown's which are basically non existant, charleston and its surrounding area does also prevail in high school sports with tremendous competition straight up 64 all the way to huntington where morgantown has morgantown and university and thats about it within an hour plus... charleston's food is honestly probably a little better but that one is debatable (my vote would go to charleston)they also have the beautiful capital buliding, the power and the nicest skyline in the state these are just a few of the high points I decided to hit I could go on for days but just what came to mind

I'm wondering where you are getting some of this stuff. You're "from" Charleston, so I'd say its safe to say you have some bias. Italian food varies in style and composition depending, in part, on the origen of the ancestors of the owners because styles vary widely from one part of Italy to another. We tend to like the food we are accustomed to eating. You grew up in Charleston. It is understandable you would like the food there. That does not make it better. It means you like that style better. And, there are a ton of high schools within an hour of Morgantown... far more than within an hour of Charleston. Just within West Virginia you have the Marion, Preston, Harrison, and Taylor county high schools. In Pennsylvania you have dozens of them reaching almost to the city of Pittsburgh itself. And there are no suburbs in Charleston that compare with Cheat Lake, which has sections where the least expensive home is $2 million.

I appreciate that you went to school here, but you must have spent most of your town enjoying that under 30 nightlife aspect and ignoring the rest of it.

By the way, personally I like Oliverios, but many people here would say that is not the best Italian food in Morgantown. A lot of folks like Stefanos better and still others like Colasantes. http://stefanosmorgantown.com/

Fairmont and Clarksburg were known for having the best Italian food in WV. Oliveros is ok.

Different folks like different things. You really can't say one is "better" than the other. People with ancestors from northern Italy, for example, tend to put white sauce (or "gravy" as they call it) on their pasta. The further south you go there, the more tomatoes are utilized. Some like it thick, and some like it runny. Differing types of bread are used. Sicily is really as much Greek as it is Italian. And, when people came here, they brought their particular preferences with them. I lived in the NYC area for nearly 2 decades, and had all this explained to me more than once.

That said, I believe Clarksburg has as much distinctive Italian flavor as any place in the country.
