Unfortunately, it was not a great experience! The waitress, while super sweet, was very unattentive. I was left to have to ask the hostess for items at once as my waitress was no where to be found. The mocktail I had was delicious! But the spaghetti was just mehhh. The sauce was almost non-existent and when I asked for more, it almost tasted burned. My arugula salad also looked very "tired" - so many wilted pieces. I'm pretty easy to please so I didn't say anything, but it wasn't the type of dinner I was hoping for!

I’ve eaten here twice before and ordered the spaghetti bolognese, which was very good. So this time decided to change and I ordered the chicken piccata. It was not cooked through and I had to send it back. I ordered the braised short ribs in its place—it was good but part of the meat was very fatty. The manager was very apologetic and said he would comp a dessert but that didn’t happen.

Went here for a graduation dinner celebration and was not disappointed! The saffron fettuccine was so delicious - I’d highly recommend trying it out! The tomato basil flatbread and calamari appetizers were also fantastic.

We loved everything that we ate at Princi Italia! The homemade bread and pasta dough is delicious. The highlight of the evening though was definitely our server (and the delicious after dinner coffee!!)

The service was great, but prices were a little too expensive for the portions they gave. Food was okay—some of our group’s food was too bland (black pepper fettuccini) and some was way too salty (like the fettuccini Alfredo). Might go back and try something else on the menu, like the pizza. There was no dessert menu, so we could not see prices for desserts even though waiters had them memorized. Overall, an okay experience but could’ve been better!

I had a group of eight for a prom night, and we ate at Princi Italia. It was amazing! For starters they had free parking for the residents which was great for people driving to the restaurant! The ambience was beautiful light, and the service was outstanding! The food was good in quality and quantity and all for a good price, which was great for a group of eight teens not wanting to overpay! Overall, a great time and amazing food!

Midtown location with parking makes it attractive. We had to find a waiter. The pizza was tasty,but the crust was not crisp- and it came out before our drinks arrived.
We ordered the seafood fettuccine
And it was almost tasteless.
The risotto was basic white rice with sine peas and carrots. Disappointing.
Short ribs and sea bass were tasty.
Would give it another try

Our Bee's Knee's cocktails were terrible and they wouldn't take them back. Appetizers were okay, not bad but not spectacular. My Scottish Salmon was delicious but the fettuccine di mare was, well, eh. My wine was good though, I think it was the 11 Minutes Rose or something like that. If I ever go back, I'll just get the calamari appetizer, the Scottish Salmon, and a bottle of the Rose. I doubt I'll go back though. I was so disappointed, I didn't even want to see the dessert menu and I ALWAYS get dessert.

What I liked most, was that our table of five could talk to each other without yelling, and the restaurant was full. It has nice decor, and it is very conveniently located, since we walked there from the High Museum. Our waiter was very good, but the women at the front desk seemed a bit disorganized (maybe someone was new?). Other tables seemed to be ordering the thin pizza. But we went with pasta, that turned out to be overcooked, unoriginal, and flavorless. My caprese salad was good. And others at our table seemed to like the shrimp and grits. Since we go for the food... I do not know that we will be back.

A good lunch place but not a great place for a corporate dinner. Service was sub-par, the kitchen seemed overwhelmed, some of our order was forgotten and the quality of the entree was less than good.

I was quite disappointed by my experience. I had balanced expectations based upon the photos, online reviews in the low 4 out of 5, and the online menu. However, the food was unimpressive at best. The braised short ribs was extremely tough. Its appearance was unappetizing. The romano crusted chicken was dry and tasteless. I would not recommend taking a chance on Princi, except for pizza. It seems as if everyone ordered the pizza or flatbread.

I had the meatballs (Beef and Chicken) which were not good. The balls were hard and tasted microwaved and not cooked thoroughly. The sauce was good, but it's not your traditional large meatballs where it falls apart and melts in your mouth.

I also had the short ribs which was cooked nicely. This was just right and very tasty and would recommend. Nothing to shout out about, but I think the meatballs took away the experience.

Mixed result brunch! My eating companions enjoyed their waffley and french toasty choices a lot - the crab cake benedict and the southern bloody mary were both meh. Generally I find the food quality high here, so this was a bit of a disappointment. The service, for a smaller size space, was quite uneven and indifferent, although the greeter and manager were quite pleasant. I think I'll stick to lunch or dinner in the future.

Ordered bottomless mimosa and my glass filled up only 2 times I had to wait 15-20 min for server to fill it up. Also ordered eggs Benedict with crab meat and look in the photo how much crab meat I got.
Also prices are higher than what’s on here for example bottomless mimosa is $10 here but I got charged $18 and had to wait for server to fill it up every time.
Thank you but never again

This was my third visit to Princi Italia and I've still not had a good experience there. I ordered the fig and goat cheese bruschetta appetizer. It was missing balsamic vinegar or something to marry the three components. The pizza I ordered was luke warm and no sauce. Others ordered pizza as well and theirs was cold too. Not going back.

We had a great waitress but we have to say that the food was just not good. There was 4 of us and 3 of us had meals that were just not prepared well. We had a pretty good time because of our server but, we just can’t recommend the restaurant because of the food.
