Funi.. Fantastic Food

One of the best restaurants in the area. The food is consistently delicious and the service (especially our favorite wait person, Sarah) is wonderful. Worth the drive to beautiful Glen Arbor .

This is one of my families favorite restaurants in Glen Arbor. Multiple times during the summer we eat at this restaurant. The spaghetti and meatballs, eggplant Parmesan, and chicken piccata are my favorites. Def a must dine! Waitstaff is very friendly. Local spot!

Great service and consistent chef with thoughtful wine list. Really enjoy dining here year after year. The veal is always good. Also enjoyed the ravioli and the Bolognese lasagna.

This is a "crazy good" Italian Restaurant! A bit of a drive from Traverse City, but well worth the time invested. Reservations are a must. The excellent kitchen is complimented by a very pleasant and efficient staff.

Overall, OUTSTANDING. The food was great and our waitress was full of helpful tips and a great attitude. The food was "out of bounds", and in particular the "Veal Saltimbocca" was excellent. The atmosphere was unbeatable and overall I definitely recommend this.

The menu rarely changes but is varied enough that it can meet most everyone's needs. The food is delicious and truly some of the best Italian cuisine I have ever had, including Italy. My favorite is the chicken piccatta which is superb! Very difficult to get into during the summer so make sure to schedule in advance.

The Veal Saltimbocca was incredible!! Truly a wonderful dinner with the hubby. I hate to write a glowing review for fear of making this small place even more difficult to get a reservation. We had a 9 pm reservation and really enjoyed the late night relaxed atmosphere.

Great little trattoria with warm service and a wonderful menu. Salad with the meals was so good! We both had pasta...2 very different styles and both tasted amazing. Good wine list. A must add to your list of restaurants in the area. Make a reservation!
