We took a ride to nearby Cedar Bog and stopped at Cafe Paradiso for lunch. We tried their build-your-own-pasta and a panini. Both were very good and we both took home leftovers. This isn't the most inexpensive place in town but it's very quaint and...More

Great food and great service. The lasagna with sausage is my favorite! The portobello chicken is also wonderful.

Stopped for a casual afternoon meal on a very chilly day. It was a great choice. Very nice lunch menu. Roasted garlic soup was delicious and Mike's Mac and Cheese was to. Close and cozy.

The food is fantastic! The service is GREAT! Prices are appropriate. The pasta is cooked perfectly. We've never had anything that wasn't excellent. Highly recommended. Great find in a quaint, small town.

The food quality and lack of consistency from the wait staff is always a concern. Upcharges for a Caesar salad of $2.00 and I watch the waiter pull romain from a Dole bag. I also had 7 box croutons and a mediocre dressing. No offer...More
