We attended a small family wedding on the weekend and from start to finish it wasn't five star it was ten star. The personal attention from ALL the staff from the time we entered made us feel like royalty. The special attention to the Bride and Grooms wishes.... The food WOW from appetizers to dessert was over the top and... More

It was a last minute decision to go to Lo Presti's at Maxwells a week or so ago and to bring a visitor from Great Britain. The best decision of the week long visit! What a terrific restaurant. Have been many times but not for years. Nothing has changed: incredible service, excellent food, relaxed pace...and a wonderful (traditional) ambience. Congratulations... More

This is a classic establishment that knows how to serve and make great food. Overall the ambiance is formal which is well received. The food is quite good albeit the menu remains elaborate in my mind for such a restaurant. Daily specials add a good flare. Olives, bread and feta will greet you to your meal but the reason why...

White tablecloth environment and food and service to go with it. Prompt attention to needs. Excellent meats. Italian flavour with antipasto and garlic bread provided. Extensive wine list and staff knowledgeable about the choices. Table service for Caesar Salad and other table side preparations. Would return in a heartbeat

Consistently out standing, and has been for years, and years. This is my first choice in fine dining in the city of Hamilton.

From the moment we entered the restaurant until we left first class all the way! The wait staff were so pleasant attentive and very knowledgable that he made everything sound so wonderful that you wanted to order it all. The various little separate rooms and area made for a very personal and intimate gathering for our group of seven. We... More

When you want to feel pampered our waiter is the man to do that for you, a man who gives great attentive service without hovering. No complaints with the food either as my pickerel entrée was fork fluffy and tasty and my partner's steak was cooked just the way he ordered it. Dinner, tax and tip (no alcohol) came to... More

I had the pleasure of dining in your restaurant in late January with both of my sisters one of whom was in a wheel chair. It started the moment I walked in the door and ask if they were wheelchair accessible. One of the workers put out a ramp to get my sister in the door. They changed up some... More
