If you are visiting Hamilton this is where you want to eat if you are staying downtown. Amazing treatment for everyone in our party. A specialized menu for a special birthday celebration, so much to enjoy. The traditional olive, feta and mushrooms, garlic bread, appetizers-spring rolls, chicken poppers, Brushetta, pasta, salad, choices of steak, salmon, chocolate mousse....and wonderful wines. Staff...

We were shown to our table, and left sitting. Some bread and nibblies were eventually brought to the table. Our waiter finally showed up,... More

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

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
