Stopped in for lunch. Lasagna had a good flavor and sauce was tasty. Cannoli was very good and perfect to top off our meal!

We stopped in after a meal at Mia Bella and chose a selection of cookies and a canoli to share. The cookies were superb-choclate slice, linzers, chocolate chip slice, raspberry swirl-all amazing, fresh and great flavour. The canoli was in a class all of its own! The best I have had yet. I wish I had of gotten one traditional... More

The hand filled canopies were out of theis world. They are filled right in front of you and you have the choice if you want them chocolate dipped.

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. Place was busy (waited 15 mins), but worth it. Ordered lasagna, peperoni bread, cannoli's and tiramisu. Lasagna was made with sausage and had good flavor, pep bread was good. Desserts were fabulous. Would definitely return.

Presti's used to make the best doughnuts in town. In their new , grand location, the pastries are mediocre. I haven't found anything to equal their past. What a loss to Little Italy.

I was very excited to sample the italian pastries at Presti's on a recent trip to Cleveland. Just the idea of a Little Italy that might invoke the North End of Boston was enough to intrigue me. The atmosphere of Presti's is very similar to the bakeries of Boston's North End..the case of pastries, long lines of customers...but that is... More

Presti's is in the heart of Cleveland's Little Italy district, which was settled by Italian sculptors and masons who came to work on buildings in the area. You'll find a mouthwatering variety of pastries, cookies, breads, & cakes on the bakery end. They also have a deli counter where you can get panning, stromboli, sandwiches and salads. If you have...

Spent a nice afternoon a few Fridays ago after doing interviews at CWRU Dental School. A little shopping in LI then lunch at Presti's. Actually most any of the restaurants there are great places to go and Little Italy has a charm all its own.
