Funistrada has a charming atmosphere and a certain cachet. I have enjoyed coming here with friends in the past and was disappointed at a dip in the quality. My friend and I ordered broccolini with our meal, and when it was served too hard to eat, our server took it back to the kitchen and returned it in a few... More

Just a little place but the food and service was excellent! Friends of ours have been going there for years and brought us this year on our quick trip to Glen Lake. We had reservations and were immediately sat when we arrived. The mussel appetizer was some of the best mussels I have ever had. The asparagus wrapped in prosciutto... More

This was so excellent! The waitress was perfect and did not hesitate to provide us with recommendations that were spot on. Loved the lobster ravioli, asparagus with prosciutto, eggplant parm, veal and pasta with meatballs! Make reservations ahead of time - worth it!!

Amazing food, quaint European setting, up north feeling, and my beautiful wife. I had a perfect evening. This place ranks high on my worldwide favorite restaurant list as well. Please don't go here, you're making it harder to get reservations :)

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Leelanau County. Reservations are a must. A very good menu with several specials everyday. The bread is from a local bakery and it is exceptional with a great crust. The house salad is an antipasto and there is no need to upscale to the Caesar salad. My wife had the special oven... More

We make a point to eat at Funistrada every time we come up north as the food is always very good. We especially like the linguine gorgonzola and the saltimbocca. Much better than La Becasse!

Wonderful dinner, salmon piccata. Entrees come with a nice salad. Had a wonderful meal with friends. It is a small place so it is best to have reservations. Nice wine selection.

Partner and I went here for dinner based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. We were only able to get in at one time slot two days out but it was acceptable. So be sure to book early, at least during the peak tourist season. Upon first entering the establishment, one would wonder what is in store but... More
