Restaurants in Clarksburg, WV

Early in the 20th century, settlers from Italy came to the north central part of West Virginia around Clarksburg to work coal mines, railroads, and farms. Their legacy is a bounty of Italian-accented good eating as well as one dish unique to the state: the pepperoni roll. The place that first sold pepperoni rolls (and still does) is the Country Club Bakery up in Fairmont. In Clarksdale, Tomaro’s Bakery uses pizza dough to enclose the pepperoni sticks. Tomaro’s repertoire of Italian bread loaves is as good as it gets. Customers have a choice of regular crust, hard crust, or hard crust baked, that last one as brittle as a bread stick (but tender inside). For a fine sit-down dinner, Julio’s Cafe offers a full Italian menu from pasta e fagiole to tuna pomodoro and veal parmagiana. Julio’s menu advises: “Everything is made from scratch. Please be patient.”
