The Lanzi Story

When we were seven years old, we started helping out: mopping floors, peeling potatoes, washing dishes," says Lou Lanzi. "My parents always said, 'A little work will never hurt you.'

That simple approach has carried four generations of Lanzi's to success in the restaurant business. And nowhere can you see the success more clearly than at Lanzi's on the Lake.

"Everything's Homemade" including the family's own salad dressing. "We've had it since 1957," Chris Lanzi, executive chef, explains. "My father had just opened up Lorenzo's, and he wanted something unique to draw people in. My brother Lou first made up the dressing; my father tasted it and said, 'Geez, it has potential.' It's kind of a creamy Italian, but we threw a few other things into it, and there's really not another one like it." Salad devotees can buy bottles of the special dressing, not only at our restaurants, but also at Chatterbox in Amsterdam - owned, naturally, by two Lanzi sisters.

The reward for such outstanding cuisine comes from the patrons. "I get tons of comments," says Lou. "Just last Friday, we served people from New York City that have a camp near here. His job is entertaining clients in Manhattan, so he goes to all the best restaurants. He told us our food was as good, if not better, than any restaurant in Manhattan. That was quite a compliment."

Creating all this success began with the ingredient that carries it to this day: hard work. "When our grandfather came over from Rome, he worked on the railroad and in the carpet mills," Lou recounts. "He worked two jobs because he wanted to own his own business." In about three years, he realized that dream by buying a small store. From that humble start, he eventually owned a Prohibition-era speakeasy and Amsterdam's only banquet house complete with professional boxing in the back room.

Growing up in those circumstances was Lorenzo, who learned the trade at his father's restaurants and shared his entrepreneurial spirit. "In the '50s, Dad wanted to get out on his own," Lou says, "so he broke away and opened his own restaurant" - the same Lorenzo's that delighted Amsterdam patrons for years. True to his upbringing, Lorenzo set his own nine children to work in the new restaurant. The result? His five sons: Lou, Chris, Tony, Joe and Larry now operate Lanzi's on the Lake, Sport Island Pub, Partner's Pub,and Lakeside Tavern and marina - not to mention a flourishing off-premises catering business.

And then there's the work of passing on the business to the next generation - a process that, according to Lou, is already beginning. "When my son was eight - he put the apron on, wrote the specials down, took water to the tables, and set up. He's very serious about it. One day, 'Dad, how old do you have to be in order to be a busboy?' I said, 'Thirteen.' He said, 'Darn it!"'

Not to worry. His day will come - because the Lanzi legacy should continue pleasing patrons for generations!

" "When our grandfather came over from Rome, he worked on the railroad and in the carpet mills," Lou recounts. "He worked two jobs because he wanted to own his own business." In about three years, he realized that dream by buying a small store."

Secret hideaway so glad we ate there!

"I want to go back! This is such a wonderful place, spectacular location and excellent service! Everything the Lanzi family does is excellent. The service was top notch and the food was fresh. I would love to go back during daylight when I could see the lake. Great pub. great ambience."

Beautiful and Delicious

"Just like Lanzi's on the Lake, the new(ish) Lakeside Tavern offers delicious, high quality American fare. It is nestled in a cove off of the main lake and you can use their courtesy docks to stop by for the perfect post-boating dinner. The live bands are great and the service is excellent."

"I have been to the Lakeside many times. Its address is listed as Gloversville only by a quick of boundary, it is actually closer to a small town called Broadalbin and easily accessed from a major road-state route 30. The Lakeside sits in a little bay on the Sacandaga Lake. The view is pretty and classically Adirondack, a lake, pine trees, tiny beaches, boats. On this occasion we came for Mother's Day. We had a number of folks so we had made a reservation. They had set us up inside, but the weather was so beautiful they quickly moved us to the deck upon our request. Well prepared bloody marys appeared quickly and the stage was set. The menu was varied along with many specials-so much more than pub food. We were informed that several items were not available as the kitchen was preparing for a summer menu due out in the next few weeks. Pasta fagioli soup to begin: outstanding. Freshly prepared Bruschetta to pass: excellent. Open faced rib eye sandwich with homemade red skin potato salad: amazing. The check was reasonable and a good time was had by all (15 by the way). Not one complaint. A last mention. Our waiter was attentive and juggled a busy deck with efficiency. He was really very very good for a young man."
