Not many young people know about this place.. My boyfriend is a Hamiltonian and said that his dad would take clients there just under 30 years ago, and it was one of the only nice restaurants in Hamilton! To this day, the owners run an incredible establishment. The food was really good and the service was so friendly. We felt... More

Happened onto 'lo Presti's at Maxwell's' this past weekend & what a great experience! From the complimentary plate of hourd'vres welcoming us to the table to first rate waiter and the fresh, bursting with flavor food, this place was awesome! The house red merlot was also perfect. Thanks Lo Presti's

If you happen to travel in Canada and get somewere close to Hamilton -go there and have dinner. The food was soooo good. The meat as well as the fish was always on the point just like we ordered it. And the marinade of the meat is amazing. It's delicious but isn't too intense so you still can taste the... More

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

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.
