    Is this turning into a weekly ritual? Who knows.. today was: salad at the bakery side: aubergine excellent. Marinara pizza on point. Service needs improvement tho-this is the only negative.

    It tends to be busy often but for good reason, it's a great place to go for. Very authentic, friendly and buzzing, the staff make you feel welcome. The food is fresh and delicious, desserts to die for

    Utterly amazing Italian food though it's quite noisy. Try lamb steak, aubergine parmigiana, baked cheescake, cannoncini, tiramisu, mille-fuille, and all kinds of salads. Plus, the WC is an A XD

    I have tried the steak and the spaghetti here. The steak was a bit small compare to the price and the spaghetti was a bit too salty. But I love the fresh grill pizza and the desserts are so good

    "Princi's food, which runs from tiny sweetish pizzetini (60p) topped with a pungent smear of dried anchovy to full meals such as braised beef in barolo wine, is very, very good..." Read more

    you should definitely give a try! tasty pizza, good service👍 if you have a seat on the right side of the restaurant, you wont be charged for tip because it is self service.

    My second time here. The food is really good, authentic, and reasonably priced. I would suggest get a table in the restaurant part on the left as opposed to ordering from the counter. Great pizza!

    Princi is both bakery and pizzeria. You can just buy your wood-fired favourite bread, and bring it home, or you can also decide to eat there a slice of pizza while drinking an amazing Spritz. Read more

    Amazing cakes, big selection of lunch foods, tea and coffee. Classical music playing in the background, a very busy place. Each staff member speaks Italian!

    Excellent for a quick bite, not for a night out meal. You have the option to grab pizza slices and pastries from the counter and sit at the long shared tables, or, have a table. Food is the same.

    Oh good lord! This place is divine. The food quality is incredible and the breadth of food is a true delight. This is a must go in London.

    Waitress F. Albasi is the best always in a good mood and very personable. Sit at the bar along the window if you're on a date, it's more fun and cosy. Food is excellent!

    Amazing Italian and Sicilian sweets with delicious Italian coffee. Don't go along as you will struggle to sit. Take a friend. One of you get seats while the other does the ordering.

    Italian interpretation of the traditional English breakfast is a delicious fun thing to try. Black truffle eggs are must haves.

    Love Princi, it's Italian sophistication at its best! Awesome coffee, scrumptious cakes, delicious food and great atmosphere. It's difficult to get a seat because it's so busy, but worth the visit!

    Amazing place for Italian takeaway if your working somewhere close. Eating inside however is not very cosy. But the staff is absolutely amazing! They create absolutely Italian atmosphere...

    The pastry is a little bit expensive but its the price to pay for one of the best in town. Besides that I would recommend the pizza and the anti-pasti!

    Love the pizza slices here. They are of the thicker and crispier kind compared to the typical Napolitan type of pizza you normally find in London.

    Awesome London branch of the Milan bakery. Pretty much everything is yummy, best to come during the day when you have a chance of being able to get a seat. Always lots of Italians, a good sign surely.

    Very nice food. Stop in for a quick espresso and cannoli after shopping. Does get busy later in the afternoon/evening.

    this place serves all purposes. you're in a rush and want a quick lunch, but more variety than just sandwiches? or you miss a good italian pizza? here's the place to go.

    The pizza is actually good! Not easy to find and the price is fair for the location. Also the focaccia with mortadella..just drop there when I felt homesick 😍

    Until 7pm an Aperol or Campari Spritzer comes with a little mound of pizza and filled foccacia bites and homemade crisps for £7 - great aperitivo.

    The deserts were all very good. Had the tiramisu, the passion fruit cheesecake and the strawberry tart. The shakes were ok. I like my cold but this wasn't very chilled. It's not too sweet tho.
