Great for breakfast!

This is one of the only places to get good breakfast before I go into work at the hospital in the morning. Huge delicious croissant sandwiches, I love the bacon one, made fresh and available until they run out. And the pecan roll is to die for!

We have dined here many times and always plan to return. There is a great variety of delicious homemade Italian foods (see their website) and desserts. The Service here is Excellent and Presti's is great for Lunch or Dinner. I've also stopped early morning for coffee and danish. The atmosphere to me is like being in New York. Its self... More

Whenever we find ourselves in the University Circle area, we make a point of stopping at Presti's. While they do have lunch options available, we come for what they're best known for - desserts! Apricot thumbprints, butter biscotti, mini chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons, lemon bars, custard puffs, cannoli, sorrentina cake - you name it, they have it. Presti's is very much... More

Made fresh daily and super delicious! Get them fresh when they are still warm and enjoy the best donuts in little Italy!

Excellent place to stop for lunch. Lots to choose from in deli case: pizza, lasagna, salads, sandwiches. Then walk over to the bakery cases for all your Italian favorites. The cannolis are delicious! Grab a coffee & sit at one of the café tables outside & watch the people stroll by.

Okay, so this place is in my hometown/where I reside...but it's the BEST bakery. The raspberry linzer cookies and their cream puffs are my must haves! If you happen to visit at the end of August, definitely make it a point to get to the Feast of the Assumption, it's a street lined food fest with some of the best... More

Gelato not available in January. Had tiramisu, and cannoli which were awesome. Not a lot of parking around the area. Lots of Italian eateries in the neighborhood.

We ate a late lunch at Presti's on a Sunday. It was crazy busy and a fun experience, but we did not see the machine to get a number at first; it is on a pole to the left as you enter the restaurant. My husband loved his chicken marsala, but I did not love my eggplant parmesan. The sauce... More

I go to Presti's every time I visit Cleveland. (every day if I can) This time we went for lunch. Chicken Marsala, side salad and a generous helping of pasta! Delicious! Our server was polite, helpful and efficient. Then we hit the pastry case for take-out! Yeah, I'm hooked on Presti's.

For years this has been my families after church lunch stop, I realized this last weekend what an amazing place it is, and wanted to share a review.
