Wow! Where do I start, this restaurant truly knows how to make you feel special. Lo Presti's has it own parking lot, free parking downtown. When you enter they make you feel like you're the most important guest in the building. The service is bar none, so caring and accommodating , and this is all before you have their wonderful...

We had a very nice Anniversary dinner last night. This was our first time at Lo Presti's. I had the blackened scallops and risotto for an appetizer and wished I'd had it as a main because it was excellent! Perfectly cooked scallops. My husband had the potato and leek soup which he really enjoyed. For the main he had the... More

We had the pleasure of visiting Lo Presti's for Mother's Day 2016. We were amazed at the quality of the food and service. It is a true pleasure to find such a rare gem in a world dominated by uniform restaurant chains and to see that the fine dining experience is still alive and in our very own backyard.

I do not come here very often, in fact it has been maybe 3-4 visits over several years. To be honest this place is somewhat out of my budget range aside from a special occasion. The last two visits have been a party of four and each and every person was really pleased with the overall experience.

We had reservations for 4 on Friday night at 6:30. The person taking my reservation wrote misspelled our name. That was the beginning of our experience. Our waiter we started with poured our water and gave us the menus. He brought our wine and poured the first glass and set the bottle on the table beside us. He took our... More

We recently hosted our wedding here during the valentines day (and family day) long weekend. We had approximately 75 guests and it was excellent. The staff are amazing, very helpful and very kind. My guests were very impressed with the service. As always, the food was spectacular! Our guests didn't have to chose ahead of time what they wanted to... More

I want to thank the staff for an amazing time. Perfect service. My boyfriend made a reservation for us on Valentine's Day unaware of the set menu. Once we arrived, we both panicked realizing I could not eat anything on the set menu since I was a vegetarian. Staff were amazing and had the chef cook us a separate pasta... More

One of the best restaurants we've been to in Hamilton. Excellent food, outstanding wait staff, not too "snooty" but very upscale. I would highly recommend.

Nice location. Nice staff. Boiled meat. I attended a dinner meeting at Lo Presti's recently. The salad was plain leafs. No tomatoes, few cucumber slices. Nothing special, with an overly acidic dressing. I think it was pure vinegar. But the piece de resistance was a beautiful veal chop that, I firmly believe, had been boiled. The result was that the...
