    Cafe Paradisio has become our date night/special occasion go-to. The food is always spot on, service friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and the ambience comfortable and intimate. The beer and wine list always seems to have some great local offerings as well. Simply put they never disappoint.

    During a business trip, I dined twice at Cafe Paradiso, and overall, it was a fantastic experience. The server was amiable (homey is the correct description) and provided excellent recommendations. I tried the soup, garden salad, and chicken marsala the first night, and it was delicious. The second night, I had the Brussels sprout and asked for it to be slightly more chared, and the decadent taste remains in my memory. The elk burger was tasty but large enough that it was hard to bite into. The crisp fries were as I liked them. I will eat again at Cafe Paradiso and try the other dishes, soup, and Brussels sprouts.

    This restaurant would receive 6 stars if I could for everything -- except noise level. There are so many hard surfaces in this little gem of a place that the noise is not only "energetic," as open table allows me to say, but Distracting and Annoying. We found it very difficult to hear the conversation at table if you are more than 15 inches inches away from the individuals at your table, which was the case for us, a party of four. A few acoustic panels on the ceiling and walls, which are fully available in cool designs that would not deter from the current aesthetics, would be a welcome addition and would have me saying yes to returning again and more often. Delicious food and amazing service at this spot.

    Just an exceptional restaurant. We had three dishes and every one was incredibly delicious. The roasted and pickled beats were perfectly paired with an herbed whipped goat cheese. The scallops were seared with an ideal crust but were tender and not chewy. And the chicken Marsala was absolutely ideal, with a sauce that you just want to bathe in. This restaurant is run by a husband and wife combo who ensure that every guest has a wonderful dining experience.

    I love this place! The food is excellent! My friend raved about the scallops. I had the zen bowl with ahi. If you like your ahi very rare but seared around the edges, you’ll like this dish along with the three sauces. I’m a fan of the ambiance. The walls are covered with photos taken by one of the owners. The service is very good considering there’s one server. It’s my go-to restaurant!

    This place is a gem. The chef is very talented. The pickled beet salad was probably the best beet salad I've ever had. It was a perfect blend of flavors. I think the key that they pickle the beets and keep the pieces small so the beet flavor doesn't overwhelm everything else. The pork belly burnt ends were perfectly done--crispy, creamy and savory. We couldn't eat them all but had them for breakfast next day. Yum! The zen bowl was also amazing. I find it's risky to order this type of dish because they're often bland and uninspired steamed rice and veggie affairs that are just on the menu to check a box. But here, the flavor combos were exciting. Each element was elevated so it was delicious on its own, but then also combined with each of the other elements. In my opinion, that's what makes an excellent bowl--the continued surprise of mixing and matching and discovering new flavors. The chef nailed it. The only place they could do better is on the focaccia bread. Huge points on the board for making it fresh, bringing it to the table hot, and baking in all those herbs to make it super flavorful. Why not serve with a side of olive oil for dipping, especially since there are so many delicious locally made olive oils available?

    Where to start? I recommend a bottle of Riesling, followed by the Chef's choice in appetizer, then either have the Chicken Marsala, Spicy Pork Linguine, or the homemade Gnocchi dish- all are divine!

    We are so happy to have found this spot! This will definitely be our go-to whenever we are in the area. We had a 6 pm reservation but had finished our previous plans earlier and they were able to seat us at 5 pm. Be sure you get a reservation, though, because they were very full. There were not a lot of tables, but the perfect amount for this husband and wife who run most of the restaurant themselves, he being the chef and she is the front of house. There were so many groups of locals who were dining here, and a few tables had even brought in baby gifts for the lovely couple, since she is due in a month. This warmed our hearts to see the support of the community. You could tell this is a favorite local spot and the couple certainly deserves the love. They were friendly, accommodating, and served with excellence. The appetizer special was a shrimp with bell peppers and pineapple dish over jasmine rice. Usually places make this overly saucy, but theirs was SO GOOD! I could have ordered 5 of these as my meal and called it a night! Luckily I didn’t, because everything else was fantastic. We ordered the fresh made focaccia. It smelled divine! We split the pear and cranberry salad. The salad was incredibly refreshing and the pears were so soft. We split the duck leg confit which was cooked so well and it melted in your mouth, in a good way, even with the crispiness of the skin. A twice baked potato, and the trio of homemade ice creams finished off the meal. We were so happy to support local, and this place was really deserving because they do everything well.

    Was very excited to try this restaurant… the reviews were all wonderful & the menu was unusual & fun! Made our reservations thru OpenTable)for this evening at 6:15. Got to the Restuarant at 6:10…. No lights on… door locked… no one there! Based off the hours posted on door (& on OpenTable)… should have been open. As a small brick & mortar business owner myself… I believe that one of the most important thing is to stand by the hours you post. Nothing upsets people more than to come to your business during your publicized business hours just to find you closed. It’s especially upsetting when you make reservations for dinner… and you show up on time & the restaurant isn’t even open! So frustrating! We travel through Redding many times a year & always eat out… and are always excited to try something new. May never try this place after tonight’s experience. Luckily… went to another place in town… right after on the river… and had fabulous service & a lovely meal.
