From the Barrimondi entree (cooked to your specifications I might add) to the homemade Paninis and pizza - Madeline makes every meal taste like it came off your own stove. You can taste her Italian countryside heritage in every meal prepared while she takes the time to sit and chat with each and every patron. Its always the first restaurants we think of before going out or when sending others out to dine in Fairfield. Exceptional quality and service at a reasonable price.

We've been to Café Madeline's quite a few times and have always had a good meal. Madeline runs the show and knows her business. The menu is varied both from a pricing standpoint and menu choices. It is a small restaurant and can get noisy, but last time we ate outdoors and it was lovely. They have an inspired wine selection and you can have a glass without going into bankruptcy. I highly recommend a visit to Café Madeline.

Love the menu here, nice variety. Always a good wine on the list. The service is good. Some of my favorites are the spinach and chickpea appetizer and the speck pizza. Nice, intimate environment.

We had lunch here and it was quite good. The butternut squash soup was superb along with the gelatio dessert. The main chicken course was good but not up to the soup and dessert standards. The pizza was also very good.

We have eaten at Cafe Madeline for both lunch and dinner. No matter, when we go, we are never disappointed. Cafe Madeline is located on the Post Road right in the heart of Fairfield. The restaurant has a look and feel of a French cafe, but a bit more modern and open (in the warmer months, they have outdoor dining).

The food is outstanding. We've enjoyed the fish, cooked to perfection, and the wide assortment of pasta dishes. Each dish is beautiful prepared and presented. The ingredients are healthy, yet very tasty. I've also gone to Cafe Madeline with a group of girlfriends for lunch. The salads are varied and all delicious.

The owner will help you select the perfect wine to compliment your meal. Their wine list is pretty comprehensive and reasonably priced.

Be sure to save room for dessert, as the wonderful gelato in made on premises. And, don't miss the fabulous CUPCAKES. You will never enjoy a cupcake more--yum,

We will return and will continue to bring our friends.
