Amazing fresh food, always GREAT!!

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... read more

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!

This was our second trip to Trattoria Funistrada. I would give our first trip a 5, this wasn't quite as good. The food was excellent and very fresh, except for a misunderstood order giving my daughter an extremely spicy pasta dish instead of the marinara she had ordered. The restaurant is very small, so different parties can be seated very... More

This little boutique Italian bistro in Burdickville is a hidden gem. On the weekends during the Summer, you will need a reservation. They specialize in authentic Italian cuisine in a quaint atmosphere near the shore of scenic Glen Lake. It came recommended to me to order the Veal, which is their specialty. As promised, it was tender and flavorful in... More

Outstanding Italian food, both classical and creative cuisine. Wait staff are usually excellent. The noise level, like most up-scale restaurants in this area, is objectionable.

Springtime dinner out with the family. Mom, dad and 2 teenaged kids plus our special needs 11 y old son w/ Down syndrome. The waitress was super nice and accommodating.

On Thursday through April they have a deal with two pasta dishes and a bottle of wine. Asparagus appetizer is good. Chicken Picatta was ok. Lasagna was great and so was the red wine. Dessert was good. We got a pecan chocolate carmel dessert. It was surprisingly busy for this time of year.

My wife and I had family member in town and wanted to treat them to a special meal and boy did we have one. We each had a different dish and split a few bottles of wine. The wine, at the recommendation of our delightful server was perfect and each meal was well prepared, presented beautifully and delicious. We each... More
