Francesca's and "Big Pussy" from the Sopranos

Francesca's in Syracuse

On a rainy night last week, we discovered Francesca's in Syracuse, a restaurant which looks like it is stuck in time.

It serves excellent classic Italian food.  Trip Advisor did not steer us wrong.  It is listed as No. 1 in Syracuse.

We arrived late at night, so we did not have to wait, but we hear you usually do.  It is a small place and very noisy, but charming in a gritty way.  The staff is very attentive.  We had the meatball appetizer, which was ridiculously big for $7, and very good.  And fish entrees.  Both very good.

Tom commented that he thought the guy who sat down at the table next to us looked like he was in mob.  He was --sort of.  It was Vincent Pastore who played "Big Pussy" in The Sopranos.  He was in town for a film festival.

We have already made plans to go again with friends when we go back to Syracuse.
