Great pastries

Excellent place for super pastries and other Italian home cooked foods. Excellent coffee, good selection of wines (but expensive). Crazy atmosphere, you have to queue for food, pay then collect your drinks and then find a seat.......or be civilised and go to the restaurant. Totally recommend this... read more

Crazy atmosphere, you have to queue for food, pay then collect your drinks and then find a seat.......or be civilised and go to the restaurant. Totally recommend this place. The staff are so friendly and helpful, real Italian style

Came here initially just for a cake and hot drink, although the cakes looked amazing and very fresh it was the pizza that caught my eye! We ordered 2 pizzas between 4 and wow they were very authentic, cooked in a stone pizza oven, lovely ingredients, the best pizza I have had in the UK! Definitely recommend, it does get... More

Princi London is one of Italian restaurants in London Soho where you find good food quality, however, some items are pricey like desserts and are not even displayed correctly. Baba' is not cannolo(see pic attached) and on the top of thatis too expensive compared to the Baba' served in Princi pizzeria, that is bigger portion and served properly.

As a half-Italian, I am extremely critical of pizza. The Princi pizza however, is outstanding. Excellent atmosphere and a deli counter to make anyone salivate!!! A must-have regular for anyone who likes good Italian food. Often a queue though, so be prepared!

Princi isn't just another Italian Trattoria or Ristorante wannabe like the thousands of restaurants out of italy that claim they have brought the experience "from the old country". At Princi everything is italian, the products, the staff, even the smell is from a true italian place, even the bottles of water are from an italian brand that cannot find easily... More

Their vibrant bakery displayed near the front of the cafe was hard to walk away from, so we went in for brunch after realizing The Breakfast Club nearby was an impossible wait. And boy were we not wrong, their croissants were incredibly flakey and buttery, and eggs seemed very nice and fancy. It was a busy place, and the interior... More

Visited on Tuesday Evening. Food was tempting, authentic and delicious, and we were able to find space for two to eat. With a busy yet friendly atmosphere, great place when you want a delicious meal in 30 minutes when on the way to somewhere in Soho area.

This is the place to definitely go for a quick bite! Either sit for a proper meal or have a beverage with a dessert or two! You can also get a few slices of pizza or any of the other Italian delicacies, which are cooked perfect. The same with the desserts, always up to standards. The only issues here is... More

Had seen this place previous day but could not get in as too busy. Called back next day around 5 and managed to get a table for four. At the outset, there appear to be a lot of staff working the floor on the restaurant, but some appear to be mostly posing and enjoying air kisses with friends whilst hungry... More

Princi is a buzzing place in the middle of Wardour street, Soho. It's great to go to with friends or by yourself. The buffet area serves delicious pizzas, arancinis, salads and mains. It can get pretty crowded which results in long queues at the till. Also finding a place to seat can be a challenge, especially for a bigger group.... More

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
