Good and reasonably priced food. Open seating dining room. You stand in line to select and order food after taking a number. Your number is called and you then pick up your food. Nice area of town in Little Italy.

Great service. Friendly staff. Good food and such a variety! I needed something quick and was surprised that this was the only place with just a slice of pizza available. Very reasonable prices!! You won’t be disappointed.

It was fairly crowded when we visited, but they are efficient and it moved quickly. We just went in for the bakery, along with everyone else at the time. So many choices, it was hard to decide. They have breakfast pastries, bread, cookies, soft serve...ice cream, lemon ice, gelato, cakes and coffee. They also have a deli. We got custard puffs which were awesome, fudge brownie cookies also very good soft and chocolatey and turtle cookies (the chocolate, caramel and nut topping was good but didn't care for the cookie so much). I would love to have one of their custard puffs with chocolate frosting on top right now.More

The dessert cases were visually appealing. I had difficulty making a choice because everything looked so good! We had Cannolli and blueberry cheesecake-both were amazing! When we stopped back for take-home items, my husband re-ordered the Cannolli . It was THAT GOOD!

All the food options looked amazing! Highly recommend trying the amaretto lobster tail. The only thing holding back the fifth star is the wait, it took much longer than expected.

Located in the heart of Cleveland's Little Italy, this place is part bakery and part Italian deli. Both are exceptional and the prices are unbeatable. Parking is always going to be an issue in Little Italy, but one situated this is a great neighborhood spot....Highly recommended for those looking for great dining value!More

The food was very good, and the ambience as well. It really tasted like Italy. I especially loved the broccoli salat I had as a side. But be sure not to be in a hurry. The service was really slow. We waited to order for...more than 20 minutes. But it was worth the wait. Very reasonably priced as well.More

We stopped in on a Thursday evening while browsing the area. My daughters and son in law and I. The atmosphere was casual and comfortable, clean and homey. Bakery cases were full. Staff was helpful and friendly. We got desserts and a cappuccino. All were...average or above. Fresh and authentic. We had a cream puff, cheesecake and assorted cookies as well as 2 varieties of mousse. All very tasty and would definitely go back if were in the area!More

We stopped here for lunch and take away cookies. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. The cookies are traditional Italian Bakery cookies. They are worth the drive to Cleveland. We will be back.

We have the best Italian bakery I have ever been to in our city. While on vacation we wanted a sweet treat and stumbled upon Presti's; what a delicious treat for dessert. They have a fantastic variety of pastries and Italian cookies, as well as...gelato and coffees.More

We were attracted by all the activity in Presti's Bakery in the middle of the afternoon during a visit to Cleveland's Little Italy. Even during that quiet time, we took a number that was 50 from the number being called and looked over the delicious...looking baked goods on display. WOW! Pastries, cakes and an endless assortment of Italian cookies filled the display. We made our choices and took them to a delightful outside table with coffee. So many times we have made choices and been disappointed but not at Presti's. Everything, including the cookies we took along for the ride, was delicious and we only regretted not purchasing more. Great choice for dolci.More

Horrible- waited 30 minutes to place order was served a ice cold meatball parmigiana sub and told they couldn’t take back food once served. Here’s a suggestion don’t serve cold food then……ridiculous!

They have a lot more than just dessert, but WOW if you have a sweet tooth, you must stop here. Huge variety of cookies, tarts, cakes and other sweets but they also have breads, salads and side dishes. We bought a little bit of this...and a little bit of that and enjoyed everything.More

We stopped by just before closing to pick up a single cannoli. We had already filled up on dinner and bakery goods. But we wanted to compare the cannoli with that from Corbo’s. Even though they are prefilled here the shell maintained a good amount...of crisp. We preferred the overall cannoli from Corbo’s but would come back to try some other goods. There’s also a good amount of space to sit inside and the ticket/number system helps keep the customers in order.More
