While cruising around the back roads of Fairfax and surrounding towns, we ended up in Clifton, VA. We found the town charming and quaint. It had delightful shops, restaurants and a general store. We did not see a traffic light, but stop signs and a railroad track that ran through town. We also noticed the many historic buildings along the main street.
By the time we reached this town, it was lunch time and we were hungry. The Trattoria Villagio caught our eyes, so we just had to check it out. A salad was what we both wanted and they had several appealing ones to choose from. We were also offered a loaf of homemade bread with oil and balsamic to dip it in. Yummy! After lunch we walked around, took pictures, and went inside the general store. This place had wonderful memories for Sharon when she was little.
