This restaurant went out of business. I can see why. The prices were entirely too high, portions were small and the food wasn't cooked well. The service was great and the atmosphere was inviting.

OK...this place has been here for many years. I can't complain about the food. It is always good. There is just something about the place though. To be honest, an odor of some sort. Kind of an old mildewy smell. It just took away from...More

It is closed. Good location for another business if you tore the building down. The Presti family did a great job serving the community but no one goes to old restaurants any more. Sad about its departure.

I am sorry to say this restaurant is closed, but we have enjoyed every meal here intensely A lot of good things have to come to an end and this is one of them. Thanks for all the fine times we enjoyed here......

I think this restaurant must be a local favorite. The building itself is rather run down both inside and out. It doesn’t appear that the décor has been updated in 30 years. Our server was quick and polite. She seemed concerned that we didn’t finish...More

This restaurant has been here for a long time, but they still serve the best Prime Rib and Italian dishes. (I had my first prime rib ever here in 1977!) The walls are dark and it's a bit old-fashioned in appearance, but they're friendly and...More

I'm a local that has been going to Presti's since the 70's. I've never been disapointed with the food or service. Sirloin tips with the signature spicy sauce and Gramma Presti's french dressing are my favorites. Other delicious dishes are the Italian sausage and spaghetti....More
