We looked forward to exemplary food and service as we'd experienced a couple of times before at Lo Presti's. This time, we visited with long time, loyal "regulars" and were given a lovely table in a room by ourselves. Unfortunately, only the "regulars" were given much attention. We found ourselves to be quite invisible by the staff. The crab cake... More

I was looking for a nice restaurant in Hamilton in which to celebrate our son's Graduation from McMaster University. We were coming from Ottawa and staying overnight. I found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and we were absolutely thrilled. We had made reservations early on and we were very warmly welcomed. There were nine of us and we had a... More

My mother and I went for dinner and it was fabulous. Right from the minute we walked in the door they all made us feel welcome. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. You get what you pay for and was worth every penny. Will defiantly be back!!

I'm not saying this is a bad place but I can't say it's a good place either. I just don't see the value. The food and atmosphere do not match up with the cost of the Meal. They aren't bad and the service wasn't either. Our meal Friday night was at La Cantina and that was amazing. I'm probably being... More

We were a group of 8, all running in Around The Bay, 30k road race. We had our pre race meal here. Delicious! I was really sorry I couldn't have a glass of wine with dinner because that would have made it perfect!

This is one of our must go to places in the Hamilton area. The title says it all. We have been here many times and we will still go there as often as possible.

Excellent service, equisite tasting food, beautiful ambience, fair prices and free parking. By far, this is Hamilton's best fine dining restaurant. Thank you Lo Presti's at Maxwell's staff for making our grandparents 60th anniversary a memorable experience.

Although there was 6 persons in our reservation and they made an accommodation for 3 at last minute, they did not miss a beat! What is considered to be one of the most busiest nights of the year definitely did not influence their standard of food and service. Our meals were spectacular as was the atmosphere. Kalipso is a gem... More

Upon entering with our friends and regular patrons, we were treated like family from Terry and Kalipso and the rest of staff. The initimate dining areas provides a elegant and private experience. From the service, food and drinks were amazing. Perfect Cocktails, wonderful Ripasso wine all compliment the food. The Veal with Proscuttio was perfect and the Wild Mushroom Risotto... More
