    Our favorite place for 15 years. Outstanding food and service, ambience. At Funistrada you feel like you were invited to a private dinner party at someone’s home. Cozy, lively, fun. Chicken saltimbocca my favorite, huge portion, dinner for next day. Hubby loves the truffle butter NY strip. Almost the size of a small roast, he brought home half of it, even though he wanted to keep picking away at it because of the flavor! Salad was fresh and delicious, field greens goat cheese, chopped pistachios and lemon vinaigrette! Wonderful combo of flavors. We find prices to be comparable to other places near this level of quality. Nice wine list. Fabulous staff. Can’t say enough about Funistrada.

    The restaurant was very busy given it was Restaurant Week. It is usually a noisy place to eat but last night there was a very noisy group seated in the center of the restaurant. It was difficult to talk to our guests at our own table. Would love to see something done acoustically to dull down the noise of this place. Never any complaints about the food.

    We tried the pre-fixed restaurant week menu and it was fantastic. It was a very full house, with lots of energy and yet a manageable noise level. One of my favorite places to dine anywhere. Well done!

    We enjoyed our dinner here. It was mainly locals, and got kind of loud at times with conversations. No music was playing, that would have been a nice touch. Service was good but quite slow. We were in no hurry, but 40 minutes is a long time to get any food on the table. That’s how long it took for bread and salads. The food is the real star. The lasagna was excellent. Portions are very generous, and wine selection was great.

    Great lil gem of a spot! Food and service always excellent! We had chicken saltimbocca and Bistecca Balsamico both served with a salad and a side of pasta & fresh bread with dipping oil. For dessert we had Panna cotta and tiramisu. Needless to say we left very full and happy. We will be back again, loving Funistrada.

    We had a wonderful anniversary dinner here! Very small and very quaint. My husband had the Anniversary Chicken and the asparagus was the best that I have had. I ordered the Chicken Piccata which was also delicious. We topped off our meal with the Tiramisu. Great service as well. We will be back often!!

    We have been to Trattoria Funistrada multiple times and last night we took advantage of the Thursday Pasta night. Given the quality of food, this event is a great value. Because the restaurant is quite small and extremely popular during the summer we have often been frustrated by the difficulty in getting a reservation if we forget to seek it well in advance. Last night, we had a slight wait for our table to be ready but the staff was very apologetic and the food and service were well worth the wait.

    Trattoria Funistrada was great! Not our favorite restaurant in the area, but a nice change of pace. It’s dated, which is part of the charm, and efficient in service. You don’t fully dine; they move you along. This was our first visit to Funistrada. I get why people love it. Salad was overly dressed with vinegar. Wine selections were solid, even the pasta night red was a 92 point James Suckling, so that was great. Caramel cheesecake was delightful. We’ll come back. But we won’t necessarily run back. We’ll work into the rotation.
