Princi used to be a really great restaurant. It has just go worse and worse each time we have visited. The furniture is in a shocking condition and in a desperate need of revamp. The dish I always eat there was a shocker. The steak tasted terrible and the chips looked like they were from Good Friday being recooked 20... More

We have eaten here a few times and the food is excellent. My daughter was performing in a show, so may husband, son and I popped in for a quick dinner. The men both had pizzas which they raved about. I had 2 starters as a main and mine was excellent too. The service is attentive and the ingredients used... More

I ordered the Gorgonzola steak, no blue cheese to be found? When I asked the waitress she said they forgot. The manager said that the cheese is a mix... why offer gorgonzola then? The food didn't look appetizing at all, the chips were over seasoned and the mixed veg was dry. Second time we were there and definitely won't return😨

We were greeted warmly and enjoyed attentive service throughout our meal. One of us requested a small change to the Seafood salad and it was done to perfection. The Parmigiana was superb - tasty, gooey and altogether delicious. Both dishes were freshly made and the portion sizes were generous. The restaurant seating is spacious and comfortable although the chairs are... More

Food and service was absolutely amazing. They have more than enough space to accommodate large groups. They are a little pricey on their drinks though so don't plan on getting a little tipsy because it will make a hole in your pocket. Otherwise you definatly cant fault them and I will be back!!

We visit Princi quite often and normally the service and quality is great. I do not know what happened on this occasion but both were very lacking. The steak was tough and terrible and the pizza, although the topping tasted great, was so limp it was a challenge getting a slice into my mouth. Very disappointing and not the normal... More

Visited again on the 14th of February and as busy as it was the service was perfect and the food as expected as good as previously. One of my favourites for Italian food.

Calm, fairly quiet. Peaceful. Service good. Food tasty and not a long wait. Been a few times. They always have our wine available. We don't like noisy places so this is perfect for us. Pretty large menu.

This place never disappoints. We have tried most things on the menus, the pizza and pasta are really good and the staff are always excellent. The management make sure you are looked after. A family favorite.

This Italian restaurant is very nice with good quality food and excellent customer service. Accomodating when requesting adjustments to the menu and management always attentive. I will go back for the steamed spinach and the chocolate ice-cream..
