Mama Roma Pizzeria and Restaurant
 in Buckhannon is an Italian-American restaurant complete with a character tossing pizza on the window and red/white checkered tablecloths inside.

The menu features pizza, pasta, subs and a whole host of entrees categorized by their protein. The menu is pretty huge, and I can't imagine someone not finding something that caught their fancy - chicken marsala, sausage cacciatore, veal scallopine piccata, eggplant rollatini, and so many more.

If pressed, I think one of my favorite pasta shapes is rigatoni, which is what I was drawn to on the menu. I went with the rigatoni with vodka sauce - their house pink sauce (which is usually their red marinara and white combined).

So, I was loaded up with my entree, a soup and a side of garlic bread.

First, I enjoyed a simple soup - a minestrone with carrots, onion and more.

Not bad - nothing too notable, but not offensive either.

The garlic bread was tasty - I loved the soft rolls, though they did get a biiit too dark on some portions.

And now for the main attraction - the largest portion of rigatoni I've ever been served. I enjoyed the sauce - a little sweet, a little acidic, lots of good flavor. The rigatoni were a nice al dente, so not so soft they just lost all texture. But, regarding texture, I would've loved maybe some veggies or something to break up the carbs. I could've added chicken or sausage, but I wasn't feeling it on this day. In retrospect, it would help with that mouthfeel.

All in all, a fairly decent meal that is comforting and filling.
