‘’My husband and I shared the shrimp ravioli and the salmon carpaccio for lunch. Both dishes were so tasty! It was our first time having shrimp ravioli so that was a great treat. The salmon was very fresh. The service is wonderful. I love the Marina view while enjoying our food. Great restaurant with lovely food,’’ said Jennifer L.from Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

‘’It was fun to sit outside at the Marina and the nearby restaurant had live music that we were close enough to enjoy,’’ said Amy O. of Glencoe, Illinois. Adding that, ‘’We stuck with the basics and everyone was happy. We ordered a few pizzas for the kids and the adults jumped right in with pasta dishes. All the pasta dishes were good but the winning dish was my husbands Shrimp Diablo.’’
Presto Italian Ristorante has been serving Italian specialties in a modern bistro atmosphere since 2011. ‘’I recommend the Penne with a white wine sauce accompanied by a bottle of Mexican Baja California Wine from the Valley of Guadalupe near Ensenada,’’ said Viridiana Chairez of Mexico City, Mexico.
‘’Who would have known we’d find amazing Italian food in Mexico?,’’ added Valerie Taylor, after her January 2021 visit. ‘’The carpaccio (for those who love raw meat) is exceptional. So is their Mango smoothie. Excellent pizza, very delicious. The service was impeccable, smiles everywhere, kindness galore.’’
