Nice girls night out

Are you the type of person that can never make their mind up for ordering food? Tapas is great for ordering multiple items off the menu for yourself or to share. For tapas, the portions are sometimes small depending on the item and priced a little bit high but the food is great and I enjoyed eating... read more

To celebrate my birthday my friend treated me to this unusual establishment. It has a bar in the middle of the place, but does not take over the space. There are numerous "rooms" on the main floor and upstairs of this restored historic house in the Hawley-Green district. I liked the different table and chair heights. But it is all... More

Just tonight I hosted a group at Laci's. The food is delicious. Tapas means a lot of choices for different tastes. I had my group upstairs. Relaxed and cozy. Laura and Cindy and the crew are marvelous at service and making everyone feel at home. I have had private regular dinner here, but I also recommend for the group dinner... More

This place is so close to being really good, as good as they want you to believe and almost bully you into thinking but there are a few things missing. Decent vegetarian options. Probably the easiest thing to fix. Umami, also an easy fix, the humus needs it. There is a feeling of Sandra Lee in some of the dishes.... More

A gem of a restaurant! We were in town for a winery show and happened upon this place by luck. The sangrias were the best I have ever had. We were a table of 8 and ordered about 10 different Tapas and 4 different desserts and there was not one item that was not a 10 out of 10. Our... More

I go here as much for the atmosphere as the food. The food first: an inventive and fun menu, fresh fresh fresh ingredients, excellent presentation. Oh, and they know their wines. The atmosphere: great buzz without being overwhelmingly loud. Even when the place is completely full - like...usually - you can have a conversation without straining to hear. The wait... More

Each time I visit Laci's, it is a great experience. The food is always good, very creative dishes, always delicious and best of all is the friendly, accommodating atmosphere. The owners, Laura and Cindy are almost always there, and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and appreciated. Laci's is one of the best restaurants I have... More

I tried the Basil Vodka Gimlet and ended up having two. Quite tasty! Next we shared the Pow Shrimp, Shrimp skewered and properly cooked. Sauce a little bland for the hot rating. Good, but not spectacular. Followed that with the Mediterranean Flat bread which was tasty. Next meaty perfectly cooked lamb chops with a small amount of a side chutney.... More

I always look forward to local dining when traveling for business. We picked Laci's from a Yelp review and were not disappointed. Great service and we tried a little bit of many things. Loved the dates and creme brulee.
