“Very Good, but not Great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Peculiar arrangement, you order and pay, then sit down and your food is brought to you. Caesar salad was fantastic, my pasta was excellent. My wife's dish was cold and undercooked, had to walk over to manager to resolve, which he did in a professional prompt manner. Not expensive, large portions.

“Poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I've been visiting prince since 1986 and have mixed experience at Prince.
Unfortunately, the past few visits have been poor. It was Sunday night and
Part of the seating area was blocked off. It was insane when people were spilling over table in half of the area. Service is terrible as usual. Servers were not accommodating and appeared disengaged.
Pitcher of soda had 75% ice and 25% soda. We ordered some garlic bread came 1/2 hour later and they were burnt. We sent them back. 15 minutes later same came back with more of them burnt. No apology
Another 30 minutes, Pizza delivered to table. Pizza toping were incorrect and all came at once. some cold and some hot. I wonder why they have to wait for earlier ones to get cold.
Staff does not appear to be hospitable.
I did not bother to complain but that was my last trip here.

“Nice family restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Nice family resaurant. Very reasonably priced and large portions. Great meatball sliders. Love that is still a family business and special appreciation they have for their community.

“Good italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have always loved their food, but after being gone for so long, it was kind of disappointing as to the way you order now.....I preferred the waitress coming over and taking your order, but the food was very, very good and the meatballs were great....chicken fettucini was just as good too.....good value, awesome leftovers

“Excellent hand crafted pizzas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

each time we go there we land up ordering the same dish - Hot & spicy pizza! it's out of the world!I would say , perfect blend of spices and ingredients! Let's say pizzas were invented here! Last time we ordered a side dish - zuchinni sticks which were just ok, nothing great.I personally like the noisy game like crowd! the service is decent, and would appreciate a little more cleanliness, as most times i've wiped clean my table and seat myself.But great place for food , beer and noisy conversation. Must mention it's a favourite with a lot of indians!
