A treasure in the City

A wonderful oasis far from the national chains, Laci's is a rarity: very good food, excellent service, and an eclectic, welcoming atmosphere. Being lactose intolerant, I can only assume my tablemates were accurate in raving about the baked brie garnished with circular apple slices. The small-plate... read more

We had never tried a tapas bar (small plates) before, so it was a bit strange at first (especially for my husband)! But Laci's is a lovely restaurant in a beautiful building. The hostess and our server were very friendly and enthusiastic. Our server was knowledgeable and helped us to navigate through our "first time." She described Laci's as "a... More

Just finished a tapas dinner with friends at this establishment. Good food , good service with our waitstaff. I would have rated it a 5 but one bad experience , drinks at the bar and we ordered a bottle of wine and asked the waitress to take it upstairs to our reserved table, she was less than obliging and reluctantly...

We chose Laci's for a special night out, and wanted to try something we hadn't before in this area. We both found the dishes to be unique and tasty. Some things were better than others, but all of the plates we tried were well beyond the usual local fare. The menu is a bit limited compared with other larger tapas... More

Amazing food! Creative, delicious, beautifully presented Tapas - with gluten free versions of the original - perfect for a fun "let's share and try a bunch of these" kind of evening with friends.

Went to Laci's on a Friday night and yes, Virginia, you should make a reservation. The unique atmosphere of an old, vintage home built in the late 1800-s adds to the cool factor but the service and tasty tapas are where the rubber hits the road. Many amazing food choices made it hard to decide but I don't think you... More

Such an amazing restaurant. Great for a romantic night out or having a fancier feeling girls night. The food is incredible, small plates styled meant for sharing. The Mediterranean dish is one of my favorites as are the flat breads and any of their seafood. Really everything I've had there is amazing. They have an abundance of cocktails and a... More

Our first time in Syracuse and once again the opinions of fellow Tripsters led us to a great restaurant. Laci's Tapas Bar gave a warm welcome on a really wet Saturday night. We got there at 6.30 and were glad we had a reservation as by 7 it was full. The waiter, Adam, explained the procedure of ordering three or... More

This place was awesome! It was my first time at a tapas style restaurant. You can't lose! everything we sampled was good. I went there with two other people and we ordered about ten plates and we shared each one. The drinks were really good, too! I had the kinky cosmo and I could have had ten more. The staff... More
