My husband and I have visited the Traverse City area twice over the last six months. Each time we visited this gem of a restaurant in Maple City (just don't forget to make reservations a couple of weeks in advance). While a small venue, it has big tastes! From start to finish, this restaurant is absolute perfection. Bring your appetite,... More

Tried to make reservation on Wednesday for Thursday night. They were sold out so we wound up with an early reservation for Friday. Restaurant opens at 5:30 pm. We were first ones seated. Restaurant has a small bar and about 15 tables. By 6 pm the restaurant was just about full. Nice menu with a number of specials listed on... More

Enjoyed this cozy little Italian restaurant which serves many locals. It's not a huge place so make sure you have a reservation. Veal was delicious. Wanted to try the Celebration (or anniversary) chicken with asparagus that looked fabulous but went for the veal. Side of pasta with red sauce or butter and garlic was strictly fair. Staff was very pleasant... More

I love this restaurant and its food. The veal (or chicken) saltimbocca is not to be missed. It's a friendly, low key kind of place but with some of the best food in the area so be sure to reserve ahead of time as it's very popular with the locals for good reason. We've been going for years and have... More

Trattoria Funistrada is a little gem in Birdickville. Not always easy to get a reservation during the summer because it is a small cozy place, but keep trying because it is well worth it. This restaurant serves some of the best pasta dishes I have ever enjoyed and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is attentive to your needs... More

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!!
