Funistrada Ratings and Reviews
This restaurant was recommended by a friend. We have been coming to the Glen Lake area for about 4 years and hadn't heard of it. We loved that it was kind of out of the way, yet busy for a Sunday nite -- so a strong following. Food was great, good wine selections, fabulous dessert.
Almost a good time at Funistrada! The food is consistently delicious. I had the salmon and linguine in a gorgonzola sauce, and it was superb!! Two other diners had egglant parm, and loved it as well. Another had lasagna and the other had the anniversary chicken--all were very satisfied and several had enough to take home.
Funistrada never fails to please. The food and service are always excellent (the Salmon Piccata and Anniversary Chicken are two favorites) and the cozy atmosphere sets it apart from other restaurants in the area making it the perfect spot for all occasions.
Once again our visit to Funistrada was wonderful. I will certainly look forward to a return visit and would suggest it to friends.
I was surprised at the additional charge for the tomato salad...($5.) in place of your house antipasto salad. It was good but not worth the up charge. I will not do that again.
Funistrada came highly recommended by friends that have places in the area. There was no doubt that this place was frequented by 'locals' who were warmly greeted by the hostess Susie.
We went for my wife's birthday and called ahead to see if we could bring a special bottle of wine. They accommodated, which made the meal all-the-more special.
The food was spectacular; I had the veal saltmbocca and my wife had the chicken saltimbocca. Both were perfectly salty and bathed in subtle juices. I had the heirloom tomato salad ahead of time.
Of the many places we have eaten in Michigan, Funistrada is right at the top of the list!
Wonderful as usual. We both had pasta and the house salad and everything was excellent. Service is always pleasant and professional. Funistrada is one of our very favorite restaurants anywhere. We always try to come here two times when we are in Glen Arbor for vacation. We love it!
We come here often and still love the food but this was the worst service we have ever had. Our waitress took a long time to first see us and first brought us a wine that was more than double the price we ordered. She then disappeared after our entriescame and we had to wait a very long time to move on in the meal from clearing plates to hearing. Next course options to getting the bill to paying the bill. If service hadn't been so slow we would have ordered dessert but we gave up and skipped even though we would have enjoyed it. Still love the food but hope we never get the waitress we had again
We brought our son out to dinner at funistrada. He had been visiting us from California. We lived in upstate New York for 26 years with excellent Italian restaurants. We wanted him to experience great Italian food in upper Michigan to remind him of his home town. We all had a fantastic meal and now a favorite restaurant!
Service was excellent from the time we walked in the door. Food was out of this world and our waitress (Sarah) was not only a wonderful server but she had a fantastic sense of humour. I would recommend this anyone who is going to be within 25 miles of Glen Lake (Michigan).
We were in Maple City two years ago and couldn't get in. We made this reservation over a month ago. It was worth the wait. Our service was exceptional. The food and wine were amazing. We will definitely come back . Restaurant only seats 60 people...reservations are a necessity.
