Amazing food

Probably my favourite restaurant in Hamilton. The food and atmosphere is amazing. I usually have a private dining room area that seats 4-6 people. We usually take a cab because we drink several bottles off their wine list. Try when visiting town.

Nice location. Nice staff. Boiled meat. I attended a dinner meeting at Lo Presti's recently. The salad was plain leafs. No tomatoes, few cucumber slices. Nothing special, with an overly acidic dressing. I think it was pure vinegar. But the piece de resistance was a beautiful veal chop that, I firmly believe, had been boiled. The result was that the...

It was very disappointing the cheap greasy spoon breakfast served. Better value and better food can be found at the Fairmont on Front Street in Toronto. Try light fluffy omlettes smoked salmon whole grain bread yogurt fresh berries. This is not 1948.

We got engaged here, we got married here and we have celebrated all our anniversaries here. However it falls on a Sunday this year and they are closed. Disappointed! Have to go to the next best place. The Mill in Ancaster. Hope they do not let us down.

Was here for a business lunch and the service was top notch. I enjoyed the veal marsala which was excellent and the portion size was so filling. Everyone I was with also enjoyed their meals; two had steak and two had a trout fillet special. Will definitely return.

We were fortunate enough to come across Lo Presti's at Maxwell's when looking for a unique spot to host our wedding reception. From our first meeting with the owner, we knew we'd found the right venue. She was very friendly yet professional, and promptly & patiently answered every question we had throughout the wedding planning journey. The reception itself did... More

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
