Lunch menu was decent at Lo Presti, it was my first time there so I was impressed. I had the steak sirloin at $21 is well priced and the steak was delicious. The veggies on the side were decent but could have had a bit more flavour added to them. The bread brought to the table was excellent and the... More

We went there for our anniversary and brought our kids too. Very relaxing and delicious. The homemade garlic bread and antipasto was a nice start. The manager/owner came by many times to see how everything was. Very good customer service. The main courses were so good. Plus they came out with yummy tiramisu for us to celebrate. Would highly recommend.... More

My sisters and I shared a wonderful meal here. They have done some very classy updates with colours, etc. Werner is the consummate host/server, who has been with this restaurant for many years. True professional. Food was exceptional. We all tried something different and loved it. I enjoyed the fish special of the day which was a very large piece... More

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.
