Beautiful decor, top notch service. Lovely couple private dining and areas/rooms for small groups. Lamb and Veal Marsala dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. Picolo Caesar Salad delicious. The menu and food was appropriately priced and an excellent selection. The disappointment was the wine list. We advise you to check it in advance and be prepared. A martini cost $18.00! Wines were outrageously expensive and if you choose by the glass, a 6oz. glass @ $16.00!! and up. If you want wine with dinner, you might want to think twice about that...or bring your cheque book!

We have been here many times over the last 25 years and it was the obvious choice for a family celebration. We were a group of 8 and were able to be seated in one of their private areas for a more enjoyable experience. We all pretty much had different meals and everyone was very pleased with what they had. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone seeking great service and terrific food!

The food, service and ambiance at Lo Presti's is exceptional. There is free parking for patrons across the street and I recommend reservations as it's very popular and they get a lot of big groups.
Their Caprese salad and Penne Arrabiata are fantastic but I recommend the Piccolo sized portions unless you're particularly hungry or want to take some away with you as the serving sizes are very generous.

We have come to "lo Presti;s" for dinner with my staff for many years now. Once or twice we tried elsewhere for variety and always ended up disappointed. Here we are always treated so well by the owners and staff. Manny served us this past Thursday as he has served us many times before and it is always a pleasure. As to the food I won't critique every plate as there were many of us but I will tell you that there was a steak special that night that was excellent. Appetizers were great and so was desert. But it is the overall quality of their food, service and atmosphere that keeps us going back. Well done!
