“Only Eat Dessert Here!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Don't even bother having dessert at any restaurant around Little Italy. Just have your meal and take a nice stroll. As soon as you walk in make sure you take a number as they take your order as such and not by order of line. I had an almond cake and a tiramisu gelato that was to die for.

I chose to sit outside (as I usually do anywhere) to take in the sounds and environment. We were served quickly large gelato was around $5 and very fresh. Considering I've had some of the best desserts in Little Italy NYC, this was an excellent attempt at it and bravo. Viva Italia!

“This place is amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

if you are looking for a great dessert place don't even consider anything else. Prestis is the best. I had the Canoli, it was incredible, my husband had some sort of strawberry thing and he loved it. The atmospher in here is amazing and it truly is a place that you don't want to miss.

“Great pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Very large selection of pastries - about 40ish. About a dozen different flavors of gelato. Some sandwiches, pasta, and other lunch/dinner selections - but no eggs,etc for breakfast. Food was very good. Only detraction was the cappuchino wasn't served hot and could have been better.

“It's all about the STARS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

This is our absolute favorite bakery on Murray Hill. The cookie choices are abundant, but the real stand out in the cookie case are the thin Cinnamon Stars! The Stars are the most amazing melt in your mouth cinnamony goodness! We never leave here without at least a pound of them for home!

We've probably tried a little of everything at Presti's over the years, never have we been disappointed! Get one of the Creme Brûlées topped with fresh fruit, the best you'll ever eat!
