Foodies will have their plates full with restaurants ranging from fast food to fine dining. Their pallets will be satisfied at the many wineries, distilleries, and breweries. For those that require more exercise in their daily routines, Spotsylvania will keep you on your toes, or wheels, or paws.


In the past twenty years Spotsylvania has expanded from farmland to a buzzing hub of dining and entertainment. Boasting over 100 restaurants and eateries, “Spotsy” can cure any craving. No matter where you visit in the county, from exit 118 to exit 130 on I95 you will have plenty to choose from. Each destination has an eclectic mix of fast food, small family owned restaurants, and fine dining options for special occasions.

If you’re in the mood for some authentic New York style pizza, Scafa’s Italian Restaurant is a great choice after a day of shopping in Southpoint. Residents of Spotsylvania would describe this as a diamond in the rough. Located in a small strip mall, you might not expect the quality of food that is served. Entrées are prepared in typical Italian fashion, and pizza pies are cooked in a traditional brick oven. Find Scafa’s at 10349 Courthouse Rd. Spotsylvania, VA 22553.
