Great food and warm atmosphere

I've been coming to Funi since it opened and not much has changed over the years. Good food, good service and good people. You will get the whole restaurant to sing to you on your birthday. My favorites are the tortellini with peas cream and bacon, peppercorn balsamic beef, anniversary chicken and... read more

We had a family dinner here during Thanksgiving week, and our expectations were met. The snail appetizer was outstanding! A dozen snails for $9 was excellent. My only disappointment was that during the off season they do not carry their excellent veal chop. However everyone was pleased with their meals, including my Italian foodie daughter in law. Price was reasonable,... More

We have been dining here for years. My wife always gets the Anniversary Chicken. We ate here this week and I had the Veal Piccata. Both were top notch. Our friend had the Bistecca Balsamico: 12oz. New York strip steak. He loved it. The service was very good. Dessert was an out of this world Cranberry Cheesecake for me and... More

We went here with friends to celebrate a birthday. We all got something different and everything was very good. I got an Italian style steak. We are Italian and find it hard to find this on the menu. It was outstanding. Very high quality beef and great flavor with the topping. We will com here every time we come north!... More

We learned of this spot through Trip Advisor and we were happy to have tried it. We made reservations and arrived a little early but were seated immediately. Most of the restaurant seemed filled with groups of people and thus getting a table for 2 was probably easier for a Friday night. It is lively and a little loud but... More

We were fortunate enough to have our innkeeper at the Glen Arbor B & B call and get us a table reserved for a special event night this past week. The restaurant of course is very cozy like all the other great reviews and the food equally well prepared and presented. There was a lady there to talk about several... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Trattoria Funistrada. The anniversary chicken and linguine with white clam sauce were superb as were the Tiramasu and the chocolate cake. The service was also excellent.

Funistrada, named by us locals, is a charming eatery. The food is always well prepared and tasty. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. They have fall "deals" which is appreciated by many locals.
