This was a great find for dessert! They have these gluten free cookies called Pignoli. Its the perfect combination of chewy and crunchy with pine nuts! I also had the creme brûlée which was equally as delicious!

OMG! It's like perfection. The pastries, but especially the cannoli are sweet and yummy. I have spoken to many who have been to Cleveland and they all also drool over Presti's. This is a must stop in Cleveland.
