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

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 menu is a relief from the over-stuffed servings of some restaurants. The roasted artichokes... 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

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

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 there with friends.

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
