Large selection of delicious baked goods and savory options! Italian cheesecake was light and smooth and the coconut cake was moist and flavorful, very unique. The spinach and cheese bread was amazing: super soft, airy dough filled with flavorful filling. Service and atmosphere were great....Highly recommend!More

The pastries at this wonderful bakery in Cleveland’s ‘Little Italy’ are outstanding. The coffee is excellent, the prices are fair and the space is clean and comfortable. A must, when visiting Cleveland!

If you want to have a taste of Italy in the USA go to this place. You can sit for hours every day and it is the same people everyday talking and having fun. Ice cream is great. The environment can't be better. One place...to go and spend a least 3 hoursMore

We have come to Cleveland many times for their amazing medical help. Never had a chance to stop in Little Italy. Had dinner and walked a block to Presti’s. Be sure to take a ticket when you walk in. The desserts were beautiful. They had...a decent looking deli. Basic salads. But they looked really good for take out. We bought cannoli, tiramisu and Klaskey. Everything was just perfect. Not too sweet and so authentic.More

The selection of bakery was vast. There were so many good things to chose from that making a decision on what to order took time. All of our selections were excellent.

This is a great spot to grab a pastry or light lunch. I always go for pastry so cannot review the savory side. They also offer freshly baked breads. The baked goods are very good. There is often a line at the counter but it’s...worth the wait.More

Prestis bakery is a Cleveland gem. The pizza and stromboli and wedding soup are fantastic. The deli salads are really tasty and the bakery is heavenly. Go on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when the lines aren't long

We stopped for dessert after a delicious dinner in Little Italy. Presti’s was overflowing with friendly people, music, and delicious, extravagant desserts to suit every taste! An espresso, a cappuccino , coffee, or tea. Lively conversation with good friends made for a perfect ending to...a lovely evening!More
