It sounds like a scene from The Sopranos. A restaurant manager, suspected by his boss of stealing $20,000, is cornered after closing time by the boss and his lead subordinate, who allegedly tie up the manager, beat him with a baseball bat, stick a large gun in his mouth and threaten to kill him unless he answers the boss' repeated question: "Where is my money?"

I would think that if your employee was stealing from you, then get the feds in on it and set the guy up so he'd be caught if that's what he is doing..What's with this "Soprano" crap? Ole Ton' ain't gonna fix this one..LOL

Why are so many of these posts full of lies?
The Sideri family owned a very sucessfull business in Lawrence for many years and has the respect and loyalty of just about every Manufacturing company in Massachusetts.
Eric personally was responsible for establishing these long time loyalties and his dedication to his customers was un-parralled.
He recently sold that business and created Angela's in Saugus. Everyone who has ever been there can attest to Eric Sideri's friendly demeanor.
In all the years I have known Eric, including when I worked for him, I never saw any inclination to violence.
I don't believe any of this crap and i am sure when the truth comes out Eric will be vindicated.

I was there last Tuesday and Eric introduced himself, seemed like a very nice guy and the food at the restaurant was great (you've got to try the wings). It was so good I picked up takeout again on Saturday.
It is alleged that the 'victim' stole $20,000 from the restaurant, and it is alleged that the 'victim' was kidnapped, beaten, etc... yet didn't report anything until the next day.
Smells like a rat to me.

How dare you pretend to know this family. I'm not going to say some of them haven't made mistakes- who hasn't? But the bottom line is that this family did a great deal for the area's economy and would bend over backwards to help someone they love and trust. You're just jealous you're not a part of it and that you're not lucky enough to know people like that. Shame on you for judging people you don't know. I'm not a "cousin," but I have known them all for several years and am proud to consider them family. Regardless of this incident, I still love and trust the Sideri family and will continue to support them however I can.
ya you think there such a good family but you go annyomious on your commet. you only know one side of the family. you will soon find out the other side of the family.trust me they stabbed a lot of people in the back to get where they are.

Dear "Mike" from Groton, Ma. You wouldn't know what an upscale community is because you live in Groton, home of the Stagecoach. Besides, let me correct you - I said that Tyngsborough was "heading towards an upscale community" not to be confused with my town of Andover, which IS an upscale community.
Tygnsboro was never headed towards being an upscale community. In order to make it upscale, you would have to move about 80% of the population out.
As far as Andover is concerned, I guess you could call it upscale when you compare it to Dracut and Billerica. But not when you compare it to real upscale areas in other places.

Why are they hated?
The Sideri family is not hated at all. They are a very respected, caring family. They have helped many people and have always treated people with respect. I think that many of these posts are written by a very small minority that have an axe to grind.

I have to agree. Tyngsboro moving towards upscale?
Well, I guess if Andover is your idea of upscale, then Tyngsboro could get there. But if you have ever been in any REAL upscale areas, neither Andover or "Future Tygnsboro" is that impressive.

I would have graduated tyngsboro high in 1984. I moved in 1978 to the Daytona beach area. The only pizza places I remember were Shakey's, Brother's Pizza i think it was, and Papa Gino's. I do miss Candle pin bowling too. I could never figure out why it didn't catch on here. I miss it but when i was driving to school with the ocean to my left i knew i would be here the rest of my life. Down here we end up with the wise guys in the witness protection programs.

Check out this fool.
