Delicious dinner, fabulous choices and great service to boot from our server Jen! The Sangria was amazing; tried the red and white with their 2 for 1. What better to finish off our meal? 4 amazing desserts!!! We met Cindy before leaving; one of the owners and Chef who could not have been warmer or more friendly! Can't wait to... More

We wanted to find a place near our hotel and Laci's menu sounded delicious. It is a hidden treasure. Our waiter greeted us with a smile and a cute snack in a shot glass with pretzel sticks and a delicious homemade dipping sauce to die for. We had a yummy salad with seared steak. The atmosphere is very hip. I... More

This is in a beautiful old brick home, the interior has been maintained and beautifully decorated. We were a group of 10 and had one waitress in an upstairs room. She was phenomenal, knowledgeable, and patient with us. Food was outstanding. One of the best restaurant experiences in quite some time.

They make the best side cars in town (alcoholic beverage). Think 1920s vintage cocktail. The tapas are delicious. Some of our favorites are the scallops, roasted Brussel sprouts and strawberry flatbread. They also do a very nice red or white sangria.

Absolutely charming, quirky place that we only would have gone to because of tripadvisor ratings. Fantastic food (for real foodies), small plates which can add up but doesn't have to. The mac and cheese eggrolls and zucchini cakes were among my favorites, but we had many plates (five people) and enjoyed every one.

This was my second visit and was not disappointed. The food, service and atmosphere was perfect. We ordered Cherry Mojitos that were amazing. The Beef Wellington is served with a layer of mashed potatoes instead of a pâté, so delicious. Other favorites were the chicken flatbread, brussel sprouts and Brie. I love the Laci Luscious sauce and was able to... More

Went by Trip Advisor reviews and Laci's lived up to the review. Nice variety of small plates and everything we had was delicious. Staff was friendly and prices were reasonable.

This was my first experience at a Tapas restaurant. The food ordered came out on small plates with 3 portions so it was intended for people to share among diners. We had 5 in our group. I shared the Beef Wellington, Scallops, Lamb meatballs and stuffed sole. The scallops were my favorite, done to perfection. The beef Wellington was very... More
