Wife and I dined here on a Monday evening and needed reservations. The food and desserts were very good. The 5-meat, 3-cheese lasagna was a generous portion and delicious. Quaint setting with good food. Make reservations!

Funistrada is a consistently excellent Italian restaurant near Glen Arbor MI. Appetizers are very good; try the prosciutto-wrapped asparagus. My favorite entree is the veal saltimbocca. Nice wine list of Italian reds.

Before the rush of tourists invade, go to this wonderful, small, friendly gem! Servers are the bomb! Food always good. Some entries are priced too high but overall, this place rocks...and you can get in...before the invaders invade.

There were kids there when we went, menu options that would appeal, and yet j wouldn't call it a family dining place.
