We loved this meal! Great fresh food and very creative menu. I would definitely eat there again when in the area. The pomegranate chicken was exceptional as was the root vegetable salad.

To be honest, we did not expect a restaurant in a town as small as this to be almost completely full at 6:00 on an October evening. But it was! Fortunately, they were able to find a table for two, and we had a very pleasant meal. There was no problem in having one salad spilt between the two of... More

This restaurant will never have a # 1 rating because it is small and can only serve a limited amount of people. Limited amount of people means a limited amount of reviews. The food is over the top good and with Veronica as your server you can't go wrong. Thank God we made reservations. They turned away more people than... More

We were looking forward to dinner at Cafe Maddalena for weeks. We were not disappointed. Great food and great service. The corn fritters and roasted beets and smoked blue cheese salad were awesome starters. Grilled pork chop and beef Bourguignon were superb entrees. So much food we skipped dessert. Our wait person, Noel, was new but was pleasant and efficient.

This place is an hour from our house but we kept hearing it was worth the drive so we went with friends for my birthday. It was well worth the drive and a delightful experience. The food was superb and atmosphere adorable. We will request the patio next time as it was charming. Will definitely be back.

We split a appetizer of Spanish-style grilled octopus with fingerling potatoes to start. It was plenty big enough to share and had an oil sauce with smoked paprika. Both of our main courses were good, but my husband's was fantastic. He had the sea scallops. He had a bigger portion of scallops than you normally get and liked the corn... More

I had expected to bring my dogs on the patio but they've changed their policy so that wasn't possible. I ate in the patio anyway because it was charming and the dogs could see me. The service was excellent. I had a glass of Chardonnay which I enjoyed and the special which was grilled loin of pork with polenta. Perfectly... More
