Just how I remember from 10 years ago

I haven't been back to this place in over 10 years. While visiting family they asked where we should go and I asked if Prince was still open. To my hearts delight they said it was and honestly after seeing the place looking almost the same. It definitely brought back some awesome memories from... read more

Went with a friend to their "Giggles" comedy club and went to the restaurant side to eat to wait for the show to begin. We had never been there and did not realize that this place is loud and crawling with screaming kids. Well, if the food had been good we certainly could have lived with that, however, that was...

I love the Prince and have been dining here for years and years. Besides the superb classic crusts, you've got to try the specialty crust options. You may never turn back! The Millet/Flax Seed (MFS) offers a crispy, earthy, nutty flavored crunchiness. Not categorized as gluten free (GF). At the risk of describing it and turning you off, I highly... More

Stopped in for a quick bite while shopping. Fresh baked, homemade sub roll was unexpected, meatballs were moist and well seasoned. Sauce was a classic red sauce. I added provolone that was melted on top & added a nice toasty crust to the roll. Service was fast, pleasant. Tables were well stocked, clean and comfortable.

Actually was at the Giggles Comedy Show when we ordered this pizza. We got extra cheese, bacon and onion. My god, the crust was awesome, light and buttery! I would highly recommend eating here for some really great pizza.

We had my husband's birthday party on a Friday night. I made reservations for 13 of us. I had never been before but went solely on reviews. It was so good we are still talking about it! I gave a list of family sides and pizzas to our amazing waiter. Everything came out at the right time and everything was... More

If you like real pizza, (New York style with a thin crispy crust, lots of stringy mozzarella cheese, oregano and a rich tomato sauce) this is not the place to go. Their pizza is bland, toppings minimal, and the crust reminds you of a biscuit.

$5.99 lunch buffet—hard to go wrong. I prefer truly *Brooklyn-thin* crust, and it seems that the farther one goes from NYC the more doughy the crusts become, but this is OK overall. They also had a salad bar, which is far removed from the entry/buffet area, so we didn't even know about it when we paid upon entry. Eh, no... More

This Pizza place in not the best, however, in my experience with Pizza both family owned and franchise, Prince is an exception. I had the privilege to dine at Prince and sure enough even after having about six slices of Pizza, I was feeling light and not a bit heavy. I wonder what the secret could be other than the... More

I've been several times and am glad I don't live closer or I'd be significantly heavier! Italian comfort food at its best in a loud, fun atmosphere. The owners are welcoming and friendly. The food is delicious and affordable. There are always crowds and functions going on. It's not a fine dining experience - it's red checked tablecloths and awesome... More
