Best place in Little Italy to stop for coffee and dessert. Don't forget to take home a loaf of their bread.

No trip of ours to Cleveland is complete with out Presti's treats! It's always crazy busy but so worth it! Grab a number as soon as you get there and start checking out the cases for something great. We highly recommend the creme brûlée and tiramisu. Parking is tough in Little Italy but on the weekends, the Catholic Church sells... More

Wow. I expected wonderful things. I thought I would have my socks knocked off. My own baking is better and I don't like to bake. Everything I had was average. Here is my list: Cassata, chocolate raspberry almond torte, lobster tail with almond cream, cannoli, and lemon cake

Stopped here for a mid-morning snack and coffee while touring the fabulous University Circle area. Great coffee! Do yourself a favor, and bypass the Starbucks and come here for a better brew and some wonderful pastry choices as well. I chose a pound's worth of delicious small cookies to take home - cinnamon stars, nut horns, coconut macaroons, kolachy, date... More

Any trip to Little Italy should include a stop in Presti's Bakery & Cafe. Every type of sweet is featured in their cases, including special Italian delicacies. Since we had just eaten, we didn't try any bread or savory dishes, but they smelled wonderful. You'll probably have to take a number and wait in line, but the line moves quickly.

The coconut macaroons [the big ones, not the little ones] were absolutely out of this world. I wish I had bought several to take home. All of the pastries we bought were very good, but those by far took the cake. I so wish I lived nearby and could sample more things. Only drawback was that the clerks were not... More

We had read the reviews and were skeptical as most places fail to even come close to the lofty reviews they receive. Presti's did not. Their cannoli were easily the best (sweet) cannolis we have ever had. As soon as we took a bite, we immediately grabbed a ticket for the line again so we could get more to go.... More

Presti's did not disappoint me. They have always had a great reputation for fine Italian pastries and other bakery items such as fresh bread. Well, I write this to tell all, that the reputations continues. The brownies, homemade cookies and of course, the canoli's were some of the best I have ever had. When ever I am visiting Cleveland, I... More

The food looked delish but we just had a huge breakfast so we bought Italian cookies to go and a gelato. Sooo good. Fun atmosphere and neighborhood. Would love to go back for lunch next time we visit the city.
