Upstate NY Great Food Experience at Franklin Hotel in Rome N.Y.

As promised, here is our great experience we had the very next day at Vescio's Franklin Hotel in Rome NY ( they are on Facebook too). When you walk in the door, your surely in heaven with the many rows of pastry in the see through glass cases.  A real family atmosphere who runs the business.

Hard to get by these without wanting to eat dessert first!
The cannoli are fantastic!

Everything from pusties to biscotti and more!

Just amazing. Italian pastry heaven. The pusties, cannoli, cakes, Italian cookies, lobster claws and many other Italian specialities awaits you. This is as close to homemade as it gets. The service and family atmosphere is just what I needed to recover from that last dissappointing experience at Cavallo's. I could have stopped right here at the pastry then came the menu..... oh boy and yes great food! Thanks to Aunt Linda and Uncle Joe for bringing us here for lunch!

Lunch Specials everyday, Wednesday when we went, they had Ham and bean soup, pasta and peas, manicotti, tripe, fried haddock, and much much more!

My husband and I had the Fried Haddock, cooked perfectly!
Great service and great food. All run by the family of course, Phil and Carol Vescio, are the owners( tell them Claudia sent you when you visit!) Phil Jr, does all the pastries, Mark is the chef, and Mary our gracious hostess.

Aunt Linda had the pasta and peas, not a pea left on her plate when she was done!
Uncle Joe had the Strawberry Chicken salad, doesn't this look amazing?

With so many scrumpticious desserts I chose the Cannoli and it did not dissappoint me... I could have eaten many more! Delicious!!
So if your ever in Rome, stop in, you will be having a great dining experience. Look for these two guys, will be waiting for you! Say hi to the two Phil's!
