Great brunch!

Great brunch, need I say more. Second time a have visited and just as happy as the first. Princi offers two separate areas, a self-service and a service area, both of which had a buzzy atmosphere.

I'm glad this Princi is so close to my place of work. Every time I feel like having a great nibble I automatically tend to get diverted towards Princi. Swift and prompt service. Sitting on the bar stools facing Wardour street during busy hours is an experience. Amazing waiting staff who deliver prompt n friendly service. They gave a great... More

Italian styled restaurant. You pick what you want over the counter; pizza, pasta, or cake. Quick service. And it all taste soo good. Only negative is that there is lack of seating. So try to go there mid afternoon to get seat. There is also a seating area with waited tables, where you can book but only to eat pizzas... More

Lovely restaurant with some nice features. The cannoli was really delicious. The staff was friendly enough. Would visit again soon to try some other desserts as there is range to chose from. Thank you.

I had a late lunch today at Princi – Soho. The selection of dishes is varied; they have a café for sandwiches and salads and restaurant for cooked food. I had focaccia bread with mozzarella and tomatoes and flat white coffee. The bread was a little dry so I had to add olive oil to soften it. Pilar Mendez, the... More

The place has a retro/modern look to it with its copper topped communual tables and limestone walls and floors. The food is above average for such a busy casual eatery but I think the pizza offering has gotten worse since two years ago - less topping more dough. I tried their spinach pizza and the spinach had a strange disagreeable... More

Fantastic experience, it is one of the few diners which feels better when busy. Friendly staff, delicious range of deserts and the seating is stylish. Unique in every sense. 10/10.

I have had take-out from Princi several times and love the quality of its food. The restaurant tends to be very busy in the evening so never had the chance to eat in. The half-Italian doorman was very friendly and helpful, explaining us how it works and telling us the approximate waiting time (which a lot of London restaurants have... More

Staying in Soho

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.
