We are staying in the area, Funistrada came up highly recommended when we searched for somewhere to go on a Sunday evening. Better yet, it didn't require a drive into Traverse City. Considering it was post season, the place was busy ... the service was warm and friendly, the wine list considerable and fairly priced (even if it was served... More

We enjoyed our night out tremendously. The numerous specials almost outnumbered the items on the set menu. Service was just the right pace. Setting is small so be sure to call ahead. Wine selection is varied enough and is value priced. Rib eye with mustard butter was outstanding.

Finally got a reservation in this wonderful restaurant. The service was excellent, ambiance great, and the meals were superb. Nice wine list as well. Definitely a must-see, but get your reservations early unless you don't mind eating at nine pm. We will go back.

This restaurant came highly recommended but, honestly, we were quite disappointed. The food was overly seasoned; nothing subtle here. The white sauce was so rich that we couldn't finish the meal. My red sauce had so much garlic that I could taste it for hours afterwards. When we got the bill, they had charged extra for the salad that the... More

Yet another busy, successful establishment where you really need to reserve a table well in advance. The cuisine here is truly high class and our celebratory dinner was among the best we ate in the USA. Meat was cooked to perfection and there was a delicious choice of vegetables. A must for a special meal.

We have been here several times over the past years- at this time was not as amazing as past times- our waitress was very kind- however the food from salads to pasta let us a little underwhelmed - maybe we caught them on an off night- however the blueberry almond crisp was amazing!

We have eaten here many times though the years and we are always pleased. My husband and I had the trout special and it was excellent - the sauce was very tasty and light! Our friends enjoyed the saltimbocca and seemed to enjoy it. I shared the chocolate / caramel goodness for dessert and it was yummy! Our server was... More

Reservations recommended. Food was very good. Pasta is not home made but very good. That is the one item I would change. Staff was very friendly and knowledgable. You will like it hear.

A summer must when visiting Leelanau County. The food is always outstanding. Make sure you have reservations. Service was adequate but dropped towards dessert.
