We'd heard this was a great place, and we absolutely agree. Never had a more tender, flavorful steak. Highly recommend Cafe Maddalena.

Who knew there was such an outstanding restaurant in Dunsmuir? Perhaps if we had done our homework, but we happened upon it as we were walking around. The meal and was very special as was the service. Not inexpensive but the quality of the meal was outstanding!

I've lived in northern California for two years and have despaired to find a restaurant of real worth. What a delight! Perfect service, welcoming atmosphere, food to absolutely die for! Locally sourced, organic and nutritious, creatively prepared. Can't wait to go back!!!

This is a tiny place, reservations are recommended. From any table in the restaurant, you can watch the very talented chef create your dinner, which will be excellent. We always dine here when in the area, and we have never been disappointed. Staff are friendly and efficient, and the entire experience is wonderful. This is a restaurant that would do... More

We thought we were going to a fancy restaurant, white maps, cloth napkins... well it is fancy all right: The waiter was super attentive and very polite, the water kept coming, the bread was very tasty and we hoped for exquisite food. Unfortunately, though everything was OK, it was not much more. Appetizers - the eggplant with goat cheese and... More

Thoughtful professional service at its best presenting fresh ingredients that are prepared with care. We were walkins, and received a gracious greeting and immediate service. I noticed that many of the patrons were regulars and were greeted by name. One young man merely wanted a coffee to go. He was graciously seated at the bar and soon left with a... More

We stayed in Dunsmuir for a week, and after two days and three other restaurants, we would gladly have eaten dinner there the rest of the trip...BUT, they are closed Mon and Tues. I had really great salmon, and a chocolate mousse cake that was as fine as any I've ever had. Reservations are strongly advised, but sitting at the... More

What a surprise! In Dunsmuir of all places. Early evening dining on the patio was a delight. Call for reservations as word gets around and places of this quality tend to fill fast. Open for dinner only (I think). Excellent food rivaling some of the better New York or San Francisco establishments. Delightful atmosphere. Excellent service by obviously well schooled... More

Had another wonderful meal at Cafe Maddalena yesterday. Food always fresh, mostly local and wonderfully prepared. Service is excellent. Ambiance is casual but very nice. A beautiful drive from Redding or Mt. Shasta or a great place to stop if you find yourself on I-5 in need of a good meal in a nice setting.
