We live in Syracuse and Laci's is our number one favorite. They are always presenting something new and it is usually a twist you would never expect. A wine list that always has something new and great bargains. Excellent wait staff and the owners always make you feel like one of the family.

A true hidden gem in the Hawley-green area it features a variety of different small plates.Great Service, and excellent Beef Wellington. Laci's is one of the best restaurants in Syracuse. Delicious shrimp and grits also the duck is far above Average.

We went here for a dinner while visiting family in Syracuse. We couldn't have been any more pleased! There was an extensive cocktail, beer, and wine list. We ordered a variety of dishes and each of them was perfect. The waitstaff was attentive and the owner came by to check on us herself. We'll definitely be back next year!

Excellent restaurant! Met Laura, one of the owners. She couldn't have been any nicer. Dinner was great - we all shared multiple different plates. The flat breads, spanish sliders, and chicken riggies were wonderful. Laci's is not to be missed. Plenty of free parking behind the building.

A small intimate friendly "cool" place to eat with great food and service. Signature offerings are small plates of a variety of unique and standard fare. Fun way to dine to sample an assortment of culinary delights.

We went here for dinner on a Saturday evening. The had lots of unique tapas selections on their menu. We sampled quite a few different items and each one was very enjoyable. The place is located in somewhat of a residential neighborhood and it can be easy to miss it. There is a large parking lot behind the building.

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...
