  • The Studio Fontana Maria from Angelo\'s.

Tucked into the corner of a commercial strip along Coeur d’Alene’s Fourth Street corridor, Angelo’s Ristorante is a paradoxical wonder. Unassuming from the outside and partially hidden by wooden fencing enclosing the patio, the cozy space has nonetheless become a word-of-mouth favorite.

Under the direction of chef/owner Angelo Martini Brunson, the kitchen dishes up a wide array of pan-Italian cuisine, including from-scratch appetizers, entrées and desserts mostly using locally sourced, organic ingredients. Expect traditional foods with an emphasis on freshness and flavor like tender artichoke hearts oreganato, grilled eggplant “parcels” with pine nuts, goat cheese and basil; veal, steak and lamb dishes; fragrant Cioppino; and plenty of pasta.

Established in 2004, Angelo’s has since made modest changes, expanding to include additional indoor and outdoor seating and adding pizza to the menu. It’s one of nearly two dozen signature items on Angelo’s standing dinner special: two entrées and a bottle of wine for $55. A fine dining experience combining Old World charm and cuisine in an unlikely CdA setting.
