You go here for the cured meats and cheeses, and great wine to go with them. The owners are passionate about introducing you to the great flavours of Italy, including some amazing flavoured cheeses, hams, salamis and curiosities (lamb ham for instance) Our Italian is not brilliant, but we found that the owners limited English and our limited Italian added...

What a fantastic experience. You can tell that the owner is passionate about picking quality meats and cheeses to serve. The whole evening is great as they bring out different foods to serve at your table. And the food is excellent. Would strongly recommend.

Read a lot of the previous reviews about the owners' passion for food but unfortunately they speak little English and we speak no Italian. The restaurant itself is small and cute with a fairy theme. The cold cut meats and cheeses were nice but not exceptional with the best ones being the freebies at the start and between courses. Unfortunately... More

Thanks for the review, “L’Angolo delle Fate” is not proposing tourist menu with the flavors of salami and processed foods but high quality cheeses and Italian tradition including Culatello and Parmigiano Reggiano names that can not be translated into any other language that all products the world envies. Daniela and Francesco are sorry for not having satisfied his appetite. Best... More

We visited this restaurant on the back of other Trip Advisor reviews, and can only back up what has already been said. If you are looking for pizza or pasta this isn't the place for you. What you do get is a brilliant experience as the owner and his wife serve you a number of courses of cheese and meats,... More

We visited while on holiday after checking out trip advisor, well worth a visit if you love high quality food, service and education!! You are advised to book, even if they have tables free!!! The owners are a credit to Italy and Italian food, their knowledge and enthusiasm is infectious. Only go if you want a high quality authentic experience,... More

We visited this small restaurant on the reviews and were not disappointed. You have to love meat and cheese though as basically that is all they serve. We chose one meat plate and one cheese plate which were plenty as we were served lots of additional tasters and accompanying wines. The owners were very attentive and made our evening an... More

I can only echo previous reviews. It's a must for foodies and as one myself who's eaten many fine foods I'd still place my evening spent here among my top 20 ever! The owners are obviously passionate about their food heritage and ensuring guests have a fantastic time. A wonderful place run by wonderful people and I won't spoil people... More

Forget the amazing charcuterie, fromages and wine. It's the passion and love for Italian culture what makes this place a must visit for the lago maggiore region. It is like a guided visit to a museum on Italian culture and lifestyle with food included. Bravissimo!
