Delicious pastries

Fantastic selection of pastries, donuts, pizza slices, coffees. Reasonably priced to go or to sit awhile. Pleasant atmosphere in the heart of Little Italy.

On a busy Saturday evening Presti's was a good choice for a quick evening meal. The pastries were really excellent. Unfortunately the soups and savoury dishes were average at best. The salads were particularly poor. The service was also rather disorganised and the tables not clean. I would still recommend going because there is a great atmosphere, the prices are... More

The cookies, the specialty italian pastries are to die for. Other things, there's pizza by the slice and not just any pizza, all kinds of non-traditional things like a square with a... More

First a disclaimer - I am not reviewing the salads and entrees at Presti's - they look marvelous, but we come here for the desserts. Every trip to Cleveland's Little Italy may start at a different eatery, but they all end at the same place - Presti's. There are endless choices for authentic Italian desserts and cookies. In particular, the... More

This little café/ restaurant in little Italy is so worth it! The food is absolutely delicious and authentically Italian! I love the manager too. P.S. the bathrooms are kinda dinky so try to go before or hold it hah. They're clean but they're really inconvenient.

I was passing through that side of town so I decided to stop and get a few treats. I got some chocolate hazelnut cookies and they were really good and the nuts were fresh. Never saw cookies like this before. I also got some cheesecake. It was a nice treat...not something I would do too often.

This little gem is always packed. They have the most amazing italian cookies and tirimisu. You also cant go wrong with their pizza or lasagna. Take a number and prepare to be amazed.

I've been traveling to Cleveland twice a year for the last 3 or 4 years. I've always heard, "You must go to Presti's, it's unbelievable and delicious!" I figured everyone can't be wrong. Well, I think they are. We went on a Thursday evening around 7:30pm. It wasn't very busy and the staff was friendly and professional. I got the... More

If possible try to avoid Saturdays but still go if this is your only chance to go, just plan on standing in a long line. The desserts and Italian food are out of this world. I had a fresh strawberry layered cake and took a bite out of all of my families choices and you can't go wrong no matter... More

This was our second trip to Presti's. The nurse at the Cleveland Clinic and the desk clerk at the motel both recommended it to us. The food is delicious, beautifully displayed and the staff wonderfully friendly. It feels like you are in another country. ..Italy.
