Trattoria Funistrada is a little off the beaten path, but the countryside restaurant is worth finding if you’re craving classic Italian dishes and excellent wine.

Funistrada has been a Lick the Plate favorite for years. My brother, Gerry Boylan, turned me on to this place and I have since featured owner Tom Reay on one of my “Up North” shows on 93.9 The River in Detroit. Now that Lick the Plate is in Northern Michigan on, WKLT, WQON and FoxFM, it was my pleasure to sit down with Tom again to talk food, restaurants and music. It’s a fun bunch of episodes so give them a listen and when you are in the area, this place is the perfect place for an amazing meal.
