Four of us had dinner at this restaurant. My companions had raved about the muscles in the marinara sauce.I have to admit they were very good and the quantity of them was excellent. Two of our group had chicken stuffed with asiago. I had eggplant Parmesan as it is always a good baseline meal at any Italian restaurant. I have... More

This is a good solid family owned Italian joint in Jersey City. BYOB makes it very affordable. Love this place. Very standard menu and great music!

This is a local spot where the food never disappoints. The food is delicious, generous portions and cooked to order. The service is slow but very friendly. It is a byob which makes it more affordable.

What happened? In 2012, food was better than average, service was slow, but friendly. The past couple times I have been, food was average at best. My wife could make The dishes as well as the kitchen. Service is still slow and not as friendly. BYOB is nice, but there is too much competition to be disappointed here again.

I have been to Prestos several times. I strongly recommend staying with the daily menu. The specials were not so special, but every time I stuck with the daily menu, I was more than satisfied. Very good sized portions.

Presto's has decent, traditional cuisine. Our meals were good, but nothing I could not have whipped up in my own kitchen. I did get the feeling there were a lot of regulars dining, which is always a good sign. Unfortunately, I was not wowed enough to go back again. Byob was nice and made for a very affordable night. I'd... More

I have been dining at this local Italian eatery for over 15 years. The restaurant is small but quaint. The food is excellent- traditional old school italian fare. The service can be a little slow, but the food more than makes up for the delay. It is BYOB. So, come with family/friends and enjoy an authentic Italian meal.

Positives: Food is very good. BYO. Negatives: Service is slow. They don't take reservations (what's up with JC places not taking reservations), so prepare to wait. No inside place to wait, so bring your coat to stand outside for 30 to 40 minutes, dealing with smokers right outside the door.

This is an Italian Restaurant that is hit or miss. The first time we dined. I was craving spinach mushroom cannelloni with a good glass of chianti. I did not realize the restaurant is byob. The menu is set. They do not take special orders. So no spinach cannelloni or glass of chianti. The night we were there they did... More

This a decent neighborhood restaurant that has all the ambiance of a dining room at a senior center. The small interior has no real sense of interior design--it's just tables tossed into a room with almost bare walls. The food was good. To be honest, we dined here shortly after Hurricane Sandy, so I probably should give the food another... More
