Great food, excellent serviceGreat food, excellent service from Angie & others, great ambiance.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AM"Funi" is a northern Michigan"Funi" is a northern Michigan gem---just what you want if you're looking for excellent food made from local ingredients, friendly knowledgeable service, a manageable, fairly priced wine list, and an intimate, backwoodsy kind of setting with beautiful, local art.
I have been there many times and my favorite dish is the veal saltimbocca which is uniquely prepared and, as the name in Italian literally suggests, it "jumps in your mouth The menu choices are extensive with a strong Italian influence and includes several seasonal and daily specials. Funistrada is for me the quintessential example of what a family owned and managed restaurant should be.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood first time thereThis was a very pleasant experience.
